12
Progressive Collapse Assessment Design-Oriented Framework Robustness limit state –Prevention of collapse of upper floors –Stretching design envelope from strength to ductility limit Two stages of assessment –Nonlinear static response accounting for ductility limit –Simplified dynamic assessment 12 6 January 2011 GEMS 2011 Meeting

13
Progressive Collapse Assessment Design-Oriented Framework Maximum gravity load sustained under sudden column loss Multi-level framework Reduced model where deformation is concentrated Columns can resist re-distributed load Floors identical in components and loading Planar effects are neglected 13 6 January 2011 GEMS 2011 Meeting

14
Progressive Collapse Assessment Nonlinear Static Response Sudden column loss similar to sudden application of gravity load to structure without column –Maximum dynamic response can be approximated using amplified static loading ( d P ) 14 6 January 2011 GEMS 2011 Meeting Need models beyond conventional strength limit, including hardening, tensile catenary and compressive arching actions

15
Based on conservation of energy Work done by suddenly applied load equal to internal energy stored Leads to maximum dynamic displacement (also to load dynamic amplification) Definition of “pseudo-static” response Progressive Collapse Assessment Simplified Dynamic Approach 15 6 January 2011 GEMS 2011 Meeting
