W-CE-005 Building Progressive Collapse: 1 PDH
Description of the Building Progressive Collapse webinar
An Introduction to Building Progressive Collapse online PDH webinar is a part of our group of on-demand online webinars. This webinar introduces the alternative path approach to prevent progressive collapse of buildings subjected to explosive loading.
The Alternate Path (AP) method is used in two situations: 1) for Option 1 of Risk Category II and for Risk Category IV, when a vertical structural element cannot provide the required tie strength, the designer may use the AP method to determine if the structure can bridge over the deficient element after it has been notionally removed, and 2) for Risk Category II Option 2, Risk Category III, and Risk Category IV, the AP method must be applied for the removal of specific vertical load-bearing elements which are prescribed. This method follows the general LRFD philosophy by employing a modified version of the ASCE 7 load factor combination for extraordinary events and resistance factors to define design strengths. Three analysis procedures are employed: Linear Static (LSP), Nonlinear Static (NSP) and Nonlinear Dynamic (NDP). These procedures follow the general approach in ASCE 41 with modifications to accommodate the particular issues associated with progressive collapse.
This webinar is intended for civil and structural engineers interested in the alternate path approach to design of buildings to prevent collapse when subjected to catastrophic loads such as those caused by explosive detonations and similar events.
At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Apply the alternative path method when assessing progressive collapse
- Classify structural elements as primary or secondary
- Explain the difference between the force- and deformation-controlled actions
- Apply the procedure of removing the load-bearing elements for the AP procedure
- Apply linear static procedure
- Apply non-linear static procedure
- Apply nonlinear-dynamic procedure
Refunds and Cancellation Policies
This webinar is accepted by the Professional Engineering boards in all states mandating continuing education as listed on this page. In an unlikely case the webinar is not accepted by the board listed on this page, we will refund the full payment and will pay for you to take another webinar or webinar of equivalent monetary and PDH / CEU value.

Length of the Webinar / Activity
This webinar duration is approximately between 50 minutes and 1 hour.
To receive the certificate of completion for the above 1 PDH online webinar, you will need to take a 10-question multiple choice quiz based on the material presented with a minimum score of 70%. There is no time limit for the quiz and it can be taken multiple times until a passing score of 70% is achieved.
Certificate of Completion
Once you achieve a passing score of 70% on the quiz you will receive and be able to print your Certificate of Completion as a record of your continuing education. PDH Star will keep a record of your certificate for the duration as required by your state of licensure. You will be able to log on to your account and view and print your past Certificate of Completion.
