2016 Alternate Path Analysis & Design Guidelines For Progressive Collapse Resistance

The purpose of these Guidelines is to reduce the potential for progressive collapse in new and renovated Federal Buildings. It is intended to bring a consistent level of protection in the application of progressive collapse design to Federal Facilities and to bring alignment with the suite of security standards issued by the Interagency Security Committee (ISC) and the General Services Administration (GSA) in their philosophy, decision-making methodology and application. In addition, it aims to bring alignment within the industry by reducing incongruities between GSA and Department of Defense (DoD) methodologies.
