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 physically removed… (More)
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 additional… (More)
Abstract A steel frame building was tested by physically removing four first story columns from one of the perimeter frames prior to building's scheduled demolition. The purpose of the field… (More)
Collapse performance of two existing buildings was investigated through experimental testing and computational simulations. Each building was tested in the field by physically removing four… (More)
