Accidental circumstances include malicious action, war action, natural disasters, fire, accidents, human error, and other hazards. They can involve actions, such as explosive blast, vehicle impact, or simply static overloading, as well as a lack of structural resistance due to design and construction flaws, corrosion or other causes. When choosing assumable cases of initial local failure, the extent of initial failure occurring in each case must also be defined. The cause of failure is irrelevant.

Even so, there will remain the necessity for a judgement and decision-making process when assets, the environment or human life are affected on a large scale. That process can be supported by professionals, but, in the end, must reflect public opinion. Design objectives 1 to 4 can be understood as performance criteria to be given by the client.

Progressive collapse of structures projects, which means that public interest is usually affected.

Design requirements design objectives design methods verification procedures. These criteria and their respective subcriteria are presented in Fig. 1 and further examined in the following sections. The design criteria should generally be established according to codified provisions, as long as these exist and are applicable. If applicable design criteria are unavailable in codified form, they must be agreed upon on a projectby-project basis by the contracting and other affected parties. For major projects, a project-related agreement will probably be the rule rather than the exception.
