Research and standards on progressive collapse of steel building under abnormal loads

Olga Burukhina, Mikhail Ananin


The phenomenon of progressive collapse of building structures is an important focus in construction design. After the chain destruction of the Ronan Point in 1968, a range of studies were directed on the causes establishment of the appearance of progressive collapse and methods of protection against them. Trigger accident events contributed to damage have a different nature and are referred to as abnormal loading. The performance of the building collapse is also in depending on the construction materials and the design schemes. Many scientists from different countries dealt with the challenges of progressive collapse. Their research has found application in modern building codes and regulations. This article provides a brief review of current analysis methods for progressive collapse of steel structures under abnormal loads, as well as Russian and foreign standards related to this academic field.
