Vrouwenvelder, A.C.W.M. Sørensen, J.D. Chryssanthopoulos, M.K. Narasimhan, H. Publication year 2011 Abstract In 2005, the Joint Committee on Structural Safety (JCSS) together with Working Commission (WC) 1 of the International Association of Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) organized a workshop on robustness of structures. Two important decisions resulted from this workshop, namely the development of a joint European project on structural robustness under the COST (European Coop-eration in Science and Technology) programme and the decision to develop a more elaborate document on structural robustness in collaboration between experts from the JCSS and the IABSE. Accordingly, a project titled 'COST TU0601: Robustness of Structures' was initiated in February 2007, aiming to provide a platform for exchanging and promoting research in the area of structural robustness and to provide a basic framework, together with methods, strategies and guidelines enhancing robustness of structures. The project will conclude in October 2011; a summary of the work carried out in this project and the major results achieved are described in this paper © 2011 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
