21. Testing and Analysis of Steel and Concrete Beam-Column Assemblies under a Column Removal Scenario
Published: 9/1/2011
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Joseph A Main, Hai Sang Lew, Yihai Bao
Abstract: This paper presents an experimental and computational assessment of the performance of steel and reinforced concrete beam-column assemblies under vertical displacement of a center column, simulating a column removal scenario. The assemblies represent ...

23. An Experimental and Computational Study of Steel Moment Connections under a Column Removal Scenario
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1669 rev2
Published: 3/1/2011
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Joseph A Main, Hai Sang Lew, Stephen D Robert, Vincent Chiarito, Sherif El-Tawil
Abstract: This report presents an experimental and computational study of two steel beam-column assemblies, each comprising three columns and two beams. The two beam-column assemblies represent portions of the structural framing system of two ten-story steel f ...

24. Safety Assessment of Parallel Wire Suspension Bridge Cables Under Thermal Effects
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1678
Published: 10/25/2010
Authors: Joseph A Main, William E Luecke
Abstract: This report summarizes a NIST study aimed at assessing the safety of parallel wire suspension bridge cables under thermal effects. Both low temperatures, potentially embrittling the bridge wires, and high temperatures, potentially softening the wires ...

27. Assessment of Robustness and Disproportionate Collapse Vulnerability of Steel Moment-Frame Buildings
Published: 8/19/2009
Authors: Joseph A Main, Fahim Sadek, Hai Sang Lew
Abstract: Several prototype steel moment-frame buildings have been designed for the purpose of assessing their vulnerability to progressive collapse. The buildings were designed for moderate and high seismic regions. This paper summarizes the development of th ...

29. Development of 3D Models of Steel Moment-Frame Buildings for Assessment of Robustness and Progressive Collapse Vulnerability
Published: 4/30/2009
Authors: Joseph A Main, Fahim Sadek
Abstract: Several prototype steel moment-frame buildings have been designed for the purpose of assessing their reserve capacity and vulnerability to progressive collapse. Designs were developed for both seismic and non-seismic regions. This paper summarizes th ...

30. Automated Extraction of Thunderstorm and Non-Thunderstorm Wind Data Sets From Archived Weather Reports
Published: 4/18/2009
Authors: Franklin T. Lombardo, Joseph A Main
Abstract: Wind loads for use in structural design are based in part on extreme value analysis of historical wind data, and limitations on the quantity and spatial resolution of wind data pose a significant challenge in such analyses. A promising source of addi ...
