dc.description.abstract A building’s façade system is the outer layer of a structure that is designed to provide protection to building occupants and contents from external hazards with varying intensity. In the modern world, many structures undergo different types of dynamic loadings such as blast and ballistics, earthquakes, high winds, hurricanes, tsunamis etc. It is a prime importance of the modern structures to sustain those dynamic loadings without excessive damage. Due to the recent trend towards sustainable development, there are more prevalent uses of innovative systems such as the double skin façade systems, which lead to new challenges in assessing the performance of these façade systems under extreme loadings. This paper presents a review of innovative double layer skin façade system with some finite element modeling to assess the behaviour. en_US
