Special issue of ASCE's Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities, November 2006.

This special issue contains 12 papers that accurately represent the current state of practice and research regarding the subject of progressive collapse and the design implications of emerging codes and standards. Papers address different technical challenges and observations associated with increased structural robustness.

Topics include:

  • definition of the issues;
  • practices mandated by different criteria;
  • observations based on bomb damage data and controlled demolition practice;
  • risk mitigation for a range of hazardous conditions
  • means of describing the consequences of low probability events

Many of these papers address the different analytical approaches that may effectively predict the performance of structures as a result of damage state conditions.
