Experimental determination of the parameters of the force resistance of reinforced concrete structures aimed at protecting them from emergency beyond design impacts is an important direction in improving the safety of buildings and structures. In this connection, the purpose of the study was an experimental assessment of the deformation parameters in the complexly stressed elements of reinforced concrete frames under special impact in the form of a sudden column removal. Experimental studies were carried out for two frames, one of which was tested when removing the middle column, the second - when removing the extreme. Experimental two-span structures of reinforced concrete frames are designed with three floors in height, reinforcement was made with spatial reinforcing cages that provide resistance to torsion with bending. The results of experimental and theoretical studies of reinforced concrete frame structures under special influences and an assessment of displacements, cracking and destruction of the considered complex-stressed structural elements under such influences are presented. It is established that the type of stress state, the formation and width of crack opening significantly affect the dissipative properties of the structural system.
