Implications of Building Accidents in Urban Settings for Building Safety Studies

12 pagesPublished: October 23, 2017

Abstract

At the core of the review is the critique that the extant theoretical approach to the study of building accidents does not sufficiently address societal level influences of vulnerability for such phenomena. Using the collapse of buildings in urban settings as reference point, the review makes a case for why the omission is fatal.
