Guidance for structural engineers and those working in a Building Control capacity, on preparing a systematic risk assessment for high-risk structures. Also available to purchase as part of a two-volume package.

This guidance accompanies Practical guide to structural robustness and disproportionate collapse in buildings, which provides a useful introduction to the concepts of robustness and the methods used in the design of lower-risk buildings.

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.

Also available to purchase as part of a two-volume package with Practical guide to structural robustness and disproportionate collapse in buildings.
