Abstract [en]

Accidental actions are in most cases caused by a collision, fire or explosion. It is not possible to predict when an accident is going to occur, therefore the building must withstand the force that the accident entails. Accidental actions are known to cause progressive collapse. It is simply a failure in the building structure, which causes one element in the building to bring down another element, which can be described as a chain reaction of failure. From 1994 to 2010 Sweden used Boverkets design rules, BKR as regulations for designing buildings. In 2011 Sweden changed to Eurocodes, which is divided into ten different standards and should be conducted within the European Union. The purpose of this study was to compare BKR and Eurocode for designing buildings against accidental actions caused by a vehicle collision. A study was done by designing a building against a vehicle collision to withstand a progressive collapse according both to BKR and Eurocode. The study showed that the processes to design a building against a vehicle collision and therefore withstand a progressive collapse were the same in both BKR and Eurocode. The results proved that by using BKR, a bigger force was generated by the vehicle collision in comparison to Eurocode. The main conclusion is that buildings of the same character and with similar conditions to the one in the study that were designed against a vehicle collision according to BKR will withstand the force even to Eurocode, which means that the buildings are safe even in today’s regulations against progressive collapse.
