    Abstract :

    Those two significant reasons that participate in collapse of reinforced concrete frames are natural hazards (earthquake, floods, fires, tornadoes and hurricanes) or manmade hazards (impact and blast), that may be designated as seismic collapse and structural progressive collapse. The majority of investigations manage to deal with one of these collapse patterns, in-spite of the fact that both of them should be taken into account for structural analysis and design. To inquire into structural progressive and seismic collapse capabilities, nonlinear static analysis is carried out to a reinforced concrete frame structure with and without the contribution of masonry-infill walls thus for modeling of nonlinear hinges in beams and columns ASCE 41 is used. The progressive collapse and seismic collapse provide non-identical deformation and force demands for the structural columns and beams.
