Abstract: The volume is a collection of the contributions of the experts of the COST C26 Action on “Urban Habitat Constructions under Catastrophic Events”: It represents the second deliverable of this Action, the first one being the Proceeding volume of the Workshop held in Prague on the 30th and 31st May 2007. The papers in this volume correspond to the activity of the four Working Groups, during the period from June 2006 to July 2008. These results are presented in the Symposium held in Malta from the 23rd to 25th October 2008. Twenty-two European Countries are participating in this Action (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungry, Italy, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom). The papers, prepared in the form of datasheets, are subdivided according to the subjects, which the four WGs are dealing with. The subjects include:  Fire resistance (WG1), chaired by Frantisek Wald and Y.C.Wang;  Earthquake resistance (WG2), chaired by Dan Dubina and Alberto Mandara;  Impact and explosion resistance (WG3), by Mike Byfield and Gianfranco De Matteis;  Risk assessment for catastrophic scenarios in urban habitat (WG4), chaired by Michael Faber and Maurizio Indirli [excerpt from the Introduction]
