In this paper, a design procedure that combines both progressive collapse design under column removal scenario and capacity design to produce a hierarchy of design strengths is presented. The procedure develops in the context of the European Standards, using the classification of European steel sections and considering the seismic design features. Three-dimensional models of typical multi-storey steel frame buildings are employed in numerical analysis. The design for progressive collapse is carried out with three types of analysis, namely linear static, nonlinear static and nonlinear dynamic. Since the behaviour following sudden column loss is likely to be inelastic and possibly implicate catenary effects, both geometric and material nonlinearities are considered. The influence of the fundamental parameters involved in seismic and robustness design is finally investigated.

Abstract

In this paper, a design procedure that combines both progressive collapse design under column removal scenario and capacity design to produce a hierarchy of design strengths is presented. The procedure develops in the context of the European Standards, using the classification of European steel sections and considering the seismic design features. Three-dimensional models of typical multi-storey steel frame buildings are employed in numerical analysis. The design for progressive collapse is carried out with three types of analysis, namely linear static, nonlinear static and nonlinear dynamic. Since the behaviour following sudden column loss is likely to be inelastic and possibly implicate catenary effects, both geometric and material nonlinearities are considered. The influence of the fundamental parameters involved in seismic and robustness design is finally investigated.
