21. Draft Report on the Collapse of the Dallas Cowboys Indoor Practice Facility, May 2, 2009 (NIST IR 7636) ***DRAFT for Public Comments (for final version, see NIST IR 7661)***
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7636
Published: 10/6/2009
Authors: John L Gross, Joseph A Main, Long Thanh Phan, Fahim Sadek, Stephen A Cauffman, David P. Jorgensen
Abstract: This report summarizes the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) study of the collapse of the Dallas Cowboys indoor practice facility that occurred on the afternoon of May 2, 2009, during a severe thunderstorm. The indoor practice fa ...

22. 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 ...

23. Testing and Analysis of Steel Beam-Column Assemblies under Column Removal Scenarios
Published: 5/6/2009
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Joseph A Main, Hai Sang Lew, Stephen D Robert, Vincent Chiarito
Abstract: This paper presents an experimental and analytical assessment of the performance of steel beam-column assemblies with two types of moment-resisting connections under vertical displacement of a center column, simulating a column removal scenario. The ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

26. Mean Recurrence Intervals of Failure Wind Loads
Published: 8/1/2008
Authors: Dat Duthinh, Joseph A Main, Amelia P Wright, Emil Simiu
Abstract: The Commentary to the ASCE Standard 7-05 states that the nominal mean recurrence interval (MRI) of the wind speed inducing the design strength is about 500 years if the specified load factor is 1.5, as in early versions of ASCE 7, and somewhat highe ...

27. PERFORMANCE OF SEISMIC MOMENT RESISTING CONNECTIONS UNDER COLUMN REMOVAL SCENARIO
Published: 4/9/2008
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Hai Sang Lew, Joseph A Main, John L Gross
Abstract: Beam-to-column moment connections in steel frame construction have been studied extensively for seismic applications.  However, the behavior of such connections has not been studied under the monotonic loading conditions expected in progressive ...

28. Uniaxial Crushing of Sandwich Plates Under Air Blast: Influence of Mass Distribution
Published: 12/8/2007
Authors: Joseph A Main, George A Gazonas
Abstract: Motivated by recent efforts to mitigate blast loading using energy-absorbing materials, this paper investigates the uniaxial crushing of cellular sandwich plates under air blast loading using analytical and computational modeling. This model is also ...

29. Air Blast Loading of Cellular Media
Published: 7/1/2007
Authors: George A Gazonas, Joseph A Main
Abstract: Motivated by recent efforts to mitigate blast loading using energy-absorbing materials, this paper investigates the mechanics of uniaxial crushing of cellular sandwich plates under air blast loading using analytical and computational modeling. This m ...

30. Interpolation Procedures for Database-Assisted Design
Published: 7/1/2007
Author: Joseph A Main
Abstract: Database-assisted design (DAD) is a methodology of designing structures for wind loads that makes direct use of pressure time series from wind tunnel tests. This paper presents interpolation procedures that enable application of the DAD approach for ...
