Approaches to ensuring resistance to the progressive collapse of buildings and structures. Current state and prospects




progressive collapse, stability assurance, direct methods, alternative path method, regulatory support, element failure, nonlinearity, calculations


The article provides an overview of accepted approaches to ensuring resistance to progress, in particular the collapse of buildings and structures in the world and in Ukraine, attention is paid to the normative provision of resistance to the progress of collapse. Research on the progress of the collapse of buildings and structures today is a new challenge for ensuring the safety of people's lives. A huge number of buildings and structures destroyed as a result of hostilities were initially only locally damaged, and their instability to the progression of the collapse caused a chain reaction that resulted in complete destruction. The study of this phenomenon will enable the project to support new buildings and structures, as well as to ensure the safe operation of existing ones by ensuring resistance to progressive collapse.
