|Title:||Analysis of Aircraft Impacts into the World Trade Center Towers (Chapters 9-11). Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (NIST NCSTAR 1-2B)|
|Published:||December 01, 2005|
|Abstract:||The objective of this report was to analyze the aircraft impacts into each of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers to provide the following: (1) estimates of probable damage to structural systems due to aircraft impact, including exterior walls, floor systems, and interior core columns; (2) estimates of the aircraft fuel dispersal during the impact; (3) estimates of debris damage to the interior tower contents,including partitions and workstations. Thus, this analysis established the initial conditions for the fire dynamics modeling and the thermal-structural response and collapse initiation analysis....|
