Structural design of building to prevent progressive collapse
Course Description
Design of building to resist progressive collapse became an essential topic especially for building with high importance. After 9/11 many specified codes and guidelines were issued specially in USA. For contemporary structural engineering, it became essential to be awarded with how to design a building under progressive collapse.

Training Objective

This training course provides participants with the essential design tools and techniques for design of building to resist abnormal cases of loading and prevent it from progressive collapse.

In particular, at the end of this program, the participants will be able to:

    • Background and definition of progressive collapse.
    • Be familiar with guidelines and codes issued for that topic.
    • Learn different methods for design building under column loss scenario.
    • Applying these methods on SAP2000 software.
    • Overview on ELS software and Applied Element Method (AEM).
    • Overview on blast loads and method for calculating equivalent load pressure.
    • Innovative structures that can sustain progressive collapse
    • Some tips for designing structures subjected to progressive collapse and rehabilitation techniques for existing buildings.

Target Audience

Structural engineers, consultant engineering companies, and companies that deal with abnormal loading, blast loading or demolition.
