In this book, design methods for preventing disproportionate collapse for different types of structures, such as multistorey buildings, space structures, and bridges, were discussed. Different loading regimes that can trigger the collapse of structures, such as fire and blast, were introduced. The collapse mechanisms of different types of structures were also analyzed. In addition, progressive collapse analysis methods were introduced and demonstrated using commercial programs through modelling examples of the Twin Towers, World Trade Center 7, Murrah Federal Building, and Millau Viaduct.
