Experimental and analytical progressive collapse assessment of a steel frame building
Abstract A field experiment and numerical simulations were performed to investigate the progressive collapse potential of an existing steel frame building. Four first-story columns were physicallyExpand

Evaluation of an Existing Steel Frame Building against Progressive Collapse
The internal forces increase in structural components neighbouring a member, usually a column, removed or destroyed as a result of manmade or natural hazards, such as an explosion. If the additionalExpand

Collapse Performance Evaluation of Steel Buildings after Loss of Columns
Collapse performance of two existing buildings was investigated through experimental testing and computational simulations. Each building was tested in the field by physically removing fourExpand
