The report of the 2022 Research into Practice Award winner. The project details the development a progressive collapse framework for the analysis of high risk projects.

The progressive collapse framework provides a method that can be used to design progressive collapse resistant structures while ensuring optimum efficiency and minimal carbon expenditure.
