[Abstract]: The objective of the report is to explore progressive collapse and define some particular terms and review current Building Codes about design methods. Several design methods will be reviewed. It aims to problem solving and work out a best solution for public
safety and economical design.

In general, there are two main design principals namely undamaged and damaged design. Undamaged method (i.e. direct method) and damaged method (i.e. alternative load path method) will be generalized, compared and discussed. Also, some particular recommendations are discussed. Finally, a more general discussion on the topic is presented and the report is completed with an overall conclusion.
