Abstract: Progressive collapse of structures has always been a hidden and one of the challenging topics in the field of structural engineering. It has always been difficult to design a building which is collapse resistant. This paper describes the importance of robustness and the collapse resistant methodology using bracings, for reducing the threat of the progressive collapse of multi-storey buildings. It shows the various ways of achieving the robustness of the structure.
Keywords: Bracings, Progressive Collapse, Robustness.
