Dear Er.  Patel,

We in USA use this document for  Design for  Prevention of  Disproportionate  Collapse . This is a U.S. Defense  Department  Publication.

UFC 4-023-03 14 July 2009 Including Change 2 – 1 June 2013 UNIFIED FACILITIES CRITERIA (UFC)
DESIGN OF BUILDINGS TO RESIST PROGRESSIVE COLLAPSE

Interestingly  failure of  building RONAN POINT in U.K. started this concept.
British Engineers started  this design and we in USA followed them after few years.     

Regards.

Dear Sefi  Engr. ,

Here is the information you ask for . Follow two examples in this document for complete design for Progressive  Collapse :

UFC 4-023-03 14 July 2009 Change 3, 1 November 2016  
UNIFIED FACILITIES CRITERIA (UFC)  
DESIGN OF BUILDINGS TO  RESIST  PROGRESSIVE  COLLAPSE :

Web- Link : For the report UFC 4-023-03  :

https://www.wbdg.org/FFC/DOD/UFC/ufc_4_023_03_2009_c3.pdf


Two Examples ( A Concrete Building   or  A  Steel Building ) in this document you need to go through for complete design for Progressive Collapse  :


Appendix – D ,  A  7-Story  Reinforced Concrete Example . Pages : 119-131
Appendix – E ,  A  4 -Story Structural Steel Example . Pages :132-168 .

Down load this manual of 245 pages and go through these two examples .  


Also see this ACI Code requirements for Structural Integrity ( Avoid Disproportionate Collapse ) :


BUILDING CODE REQUIREMENTS FOR STRUCTURAL CONCRETE (ACI 318-14) AND COMMENTARY (ACI 318R-14)
Page – 54 :
CODE COMMENTARY
4.10—Structural integrity
4.10.1 General
4.10.1.1 Reinforcement and connections shall be detailed
to tie the structure together effectively and to improv
overall structural integrity.
R4.10—Structural integrity
R4.10.1 General
R4.10.1.1 It is the intent of the structural integrity requirements
to improve redundancy and ductility through detailing
of reinforcement and connections so that, in the event
of damage to a major supporting element or an abnormal
loading, the resulting damage will be localized and the structure
will have a higher probability of maintaining overall
stability.
Integrity requirements for selected structural member
types are included in the corresponding member chapter in
the sections noted.
4.10.2 Minimum requirements for structural integrity
4.10.2.1 Structural members and their connections shall
be in accordance with structural integrity requirements in
Table 4.10.2.1.
Table 4.10.2.1—Minimum requirements for
structural integrity
Member type Section
Nonprestressed two-way slabs 8.7.4.2
Prestressed two-way slabs 8.7.5.6
Nonprestressed two-way joist systems 8.8.1.6
Cast-in-place beam 9.7.7
Nonprestressed one-way joist system 9.8.1.6
Precast joints and connections 16.2.1.8
