Progressive collapse refers to a phenomenon in which local damage in a primary structural element leads to total or partial structural system failure. When investigating the progressive collapse of structures, nonlinear dynamic procedures lead to more accurate results than static procedures. However, nonlinear dynamic procedures are very complicated and the evaluation or validation of the results can become very time consuming. Therefore, it is better to use simpler methods. In this study, a
