This paper presents simple analytical approaches for evaluating progressive collapse potential of low-and mid-rise buildings that could be used in routine design by design professionals. Although nonlinear time history analysis would be more realistic in representing progressive collapse phenomenon, high fidelity structural models to represent nonlinear structural behavior are required to produce accurate results. In routine design of low-and mid-rise buildings, simple static procedures withdoi:10.6028/nist.sp.1025 fatcat:m6cdhhf4ufetpgkwquvixixa6m
