Recent world events have heightened public awareness of building safety and security issues. Engineers are now often faced with considering the prevention of progressive collapse in multistory building design. The most prevalent design guidance currently available on this topic is provided by two federal agencies - the General Services Administration (GSA) and the Department of Defense (DoD).

Prevention of Progressive Collapse in Multistory Concrete Buildings provides a comprehensive discussion of the GSA and DoD requirements along with several complete evaluation examples. A variety of reinforced concrete multistory structural systems are evaluated for resistance to progressive collapse, including moment frames, flat-plate construction, and bearing wall systems. While this manual is intended primarily for practicing engineers, it will also be a valuable aid to students, educators, regulators, and those involved in the design, construction, and approval of buildings.
