A two-volume package comprising:

Practical guide to structural robustness and disproportionate collapse in buildings:

This guidance responds to a need for information on structural robustness to address the lack of confidence among designers in the application of building regulation requirements. It considers:

  • Fundamental attributes of robustness

  • Legal obligations

  • Interpretation BS EN 1990 (Eurocode 0) and Approved Document A 

  • Designing for robustness

  • Specific issues relating to the four main structual materials

 

Manual for the systematic risk assessment of high-risk structures against disproportionate collapse:

Here, a systematic risk assessment framework is proposed for the design of high-risk structures against disproportionate collapse. The risk-based approach presented considers the full spectrum of natural, accidental and malicious hazards; while several case studies highlight lessons from failures, instances of poor design and examples of good design practice.
