CONTENIDO: Progressive Collapse of Structures, Second edition provides structural engineers with the practical and systematic frameworks they need to anticipate the risk of progressive and/or disproportionate collapse, and to apply this knowledge to the design of new structures as well as the retrofit design of existing structures. Progressive Collapse of Structures, Second edition provides structural engineers with the practical and systematic frameworks they need to anticipate the risk of progressive and/or disproportionate collapse, and to apply this knowledge to the design of new structures as well as the retrofit design of existing structures. 

With design codes becoming more stringent in their collapse resistance requirements, there is an increased demand for guidance. This new edition addresses this demand by explaining progressive collapse as it occurs in different kinds of structures, as well as outlining both code provisions and general methods for providing resistance against disproportionate collapse. 

Progressive Collapse of Structures, Second edition 

  • offers a comprehensive, straightforward introduction to the topic 
  • catalogues and describes in detail the different types of progressive collapse 
  • includes a new chapter outlining and discussing the current US and European codes on design against disproportionate collapse – and their limitations
  • for the first time presents model guidelines that are not limited to building design but applicable to all kinds of structures
  • contains an extended applications chapter on the design of long bridges and tall buildings
  • proposes revised and extended measures of robustness.

This newly updated edition will help engineers understand progressive and disproportionate collapse and apply this understanding to prevent it.

Uwe Starossek is a professor of structural engineering and head of the Structural Analysis Institute at Hamburg University of Technology in Germany. Moreover, he is a practitioner licensed as a professional engineer in California and as a checking engineer in Germany. The major projects Uwe has been involved with throughout his career have spanned continents and taken him to Brazil, the United States, and Korea, among others. Uwe is a member of the ASCE SEI Disproportionate Collapse Technical Committee and Standards Committee.
