A workshop by Imperial College London on structural robustness of steel and composite steel/concrete structure in seismic and non-seismic regions.

Structural robustness is a key safety consideration in the design of buildings for exceptional events.
In recent years, extensive research has been carried out on the mitigation of progressive collapse in steel and composite steel/concrete buildings, leading to design approaches of different levels of complexity, some of which will be implemented within imminent revisions of design standards.

This workshop introduces the technical background and practical recommendations based on a collaborative European dissemination project (FAILNOMORE), which will be presented together with an open-access design manual and design examples.

The workshop covers the design of buildings for identified and unidentified threats.

The agenda for the day will include

  • Status of structural eurocodes and background to codified robustness design

  • The FAILNOMORE Project - mitigating the risk of progressive collapse under exceptional events

  • Overview of design procedures and recommendations

  • Design examples for steel and composite buildings
