1. Sensitivity of composite floor system response at elevated temperatures to structural features
Published: 1/1/2014
Author: Therese P McAllister
Abstract: The sensitivity of composite floor system response at elevated temperatures to variations in structural features is examined. Four structural features were varied between two values or conditions, based on a recommendation from the NIST investigation ...

2. Lateral torsional buckling of steel W-beams subjected to localized fires
Published: 9/1/2013
Authors: Chao Zhang, John L Gross, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: Current design approaches to assess the lateral torsional buckling capacity of steel beams in fire are based on the assumption of uniform steel temperature. This paper investigates the effect of temperature gradients on the lateral torsional buckling ...

3. Structural design for fire conditions: reliability-based resistance criteria
Published: 5/4/2013
Authors: Therese P McAllister, Bruce Ellingwood
Abstract: The new paradigm of performance-based fire engineering (PBFE), with its systematic approach to identifying building performance objectives, quantitative structural analysis to verify that these objectives have been achieved, and management of uncerta ...

4. Cross-sectional stability of wide flange structural steel columns at elevated temperatures
Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: Mina Samir Seif, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: There is a lack of understanding of how structural systems perform under realistic, uncontrolled fires. Fire protection of steel structures is usually provided through prescriptive requirements. The development of performance-based standards and ...

5. Performance of Steel Shear Tab Connections at Elevated Temperatures
Published: 4/16/2013
Authors: Mina Samir Seif, Joseph A Main, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: At the present time, there is a lack of understanding of the performance of structures as complete systems under extreme loading conditions such as realistic, uncontrolled fires. Current specifications for the design of steel structures in the U.S. d ...

6. Developing Guidelines and Standards for Disaster Resilience of the Built Environment: A Research Needs Assessment (NIST TN 1795)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1795
Published: 3/20/2013
Author: Therese P McAllister
Abstract: Two national workshops were convened in 2011 to assist NIST with identifying critical gaps and needs in tools and metrics for assessing the resilience of the built environment. The Resilience Roundtable convened invited leaders from engineering pra ...

8. Measurement of Temperature, Displacement, and Strain in Structural Components Subject to Fire Effects: Concepts and Candidate Approaches
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1768
Published: 9/28/2012
Authors: Therese P McAllister, William E Luecke, Mark A Iadicola, Matthew F Bundy
Abstract: For the last forty years, NIST has led the world in fire metrology through research conducted at the Large Fire Laboratory, which is being expanded to enable experiments on real-scale structures under combined structural and fire loads. The combined ...

9. Overview of the Structural Design of World Trade Center 1, 2, and 7
Published: 9/1/2012
Authors: Therese P McAllister, Fahim Sadek, John L Gross, Jason D Averill, Richard George Gann
Abstract: This paper summarizes the primary structural systems which comprised World Trade Center 1, World Trade Center 2, and World Trade Center 7. The buildings were destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This paper describes the four ma ...
