The prediction of collapse of structures has gained growing attention recently, as it is important to be able to predict and model structural collapse due to extreme loads. A lack of accurate and validated structural collapse models significantly limits the structural engineering community to predict possible extreme loads that precipitate collapse. This(More)
In developing key documents such as national building codes, regional emergency response plans, and risk management strategies, it is critical to understand the causes and effects of structural collapse. This paper presents ongoing research activities to establish a robust procedure for accurate assessment of the collapse of steel frame structures. A(More)
