Evaluation of resistance to the progressive collapse of the converter shop frame








The article presents the results of the analysis of resistance of the converter shop framework to the progressive collapse. The converter shop is a particularly hazardous production facility, and in accordance with the national regulatory documents, a calculation for progressive collapse must be performed for such a structure. Emergency situations that may arise taking into account the features of the production technology have been analyzed, and local damage to the supporting structures of the workshop has been taken into consideration. According to the results of the calculation analysis, it has been found out that the converter shop framework has a good survivability -the avalanche-like collapse of the structure will never occur in any case of emergency situation.
