Actions due to aircraft impact are normally taken into account for the design of nuclear power plants. There are usually no special design criteria for civilian structures to withstand such actions. Also the understanding of how buildings respond to impact is less precise. The study presents a hazard assessment tool, which helps to predict the performance of high-rise buildings in case of aircraft impact.
