Practical guide to structural robustness and disproportionate collapse in buildings:
This second edition (2023) builds on the first, to be fully-aligned with the Eurocodes — with a particular focus on BS EN 1991-1-7 — and the Building Safety Act. It contains new chapters on the subjects of ‘Risk’, ‘Design of structural alterations to existing buildings’, ‘Classification of buildings’, and ‘The risk of disproportionate collapse in fire’. It also considers ‘light steel frame’ as a material distinct from steel. There is an emphasis on modern methods of construction (MMC) and a selection of new case studies.
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.
