Abstract In the current work, a probabilistic assessment method of a steel framed building under abrupt removal of a column due to catastrophic events is developed. A multi-story steel framed model taking into account the influence of catenary effect has been analyzed. Uncertainties in the structural variables are incorporated in the probabilistic simulation approach. Based on the changes of component internal energy, the progressive collapse sensitivity to abrupt removal of a column has been… CONTINUE READING
