Abstract. The dynamic behavior of structure subjected to local damage is investigated using conceptional removal methods recommended in the General Services Administration (GSA) guidelines. Two types of local damage are considered, namely, the speed and location of failure. The study is conducted on designed seven-story prototype buildings by applying dynamic liner analysis. Based on the simulation, it is concluded that dynamic effects are important considerations properly representing structural behavior in a robustness analysis of structure. The results also show that corner column play more important role in prevention of structural collapse than interior column. The resulting information would be valuable for protecting structures.
