RE: Progressive Collapse Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you're interested in a good (but dated) summary of how the subject is
treated in building codes (mostly European), check out "The Avoidance of
Progressive Collapse - Regulatory Approaches to the Problem" by National
Bureau of Standards, NBS-GCR 75-48.  My copy is dated October 1975 but maybe
somebody out there knows of a newer version...

Subject: Progressive Collapse Design

I have an upcoming project requiring design for progressive collapse. What 
are the sources for such design, manuals, FM's, books, etc? Has anyone used 
RAM Xlinea for such design?

I believe if you have not been required to design with this in mind you will

in the near future.
