    Update on the SEI Disproportionate Collapse Wiki: The link has recenly been disabled because the site was hacked and a lot of inappropriate material was posted. SEI and others are working on fixing or reconfiguring the site. Building Failures Forum will reactivate the links as soon as the new site is ready. Thanks.

    Thanks for the note. My appologies for accidently deleting the link while testing some new items on the site. The ASCE Disproportionate Collapse Wiki URL is currently incactive. I’ll also make sure I get it back on the blog roll. You may also be interested in the failures case study information at http://matdl.org/failurecases/ A recently released book on the topic is Beyond Failure by Norb Delatte which can be obtained from ASCE Press and elsewhere.

    You may also want to check the Failures Wiki frequently as we are in the process of adding about 20 new cases over the next month or two. mkev
