Hard Guidance on Preventing Disproportionate CollapseDisproportionate collapse is a pressing issue in current design practice. Numerous causes are possible - especially forms of extreme loading, such as blast, fire, earthquake, or vehicle collisions. But it is the mechanism and its prevention which are of especial interest and concern.After the Wor

The objective of the study reported herein was to determine the response, up to collapse, of a conventional floor and framing system typical of the systems which would be located over a basement fallout shelter in a steel frame building. Static and dynamic tests were conducted on two 1/4.5-scale models of the basement shelter area from a multistory steel frame prototype structure designed for this study.
