1. A COMPARISON OF TWO TEMPERATURE-DEPENDENT STRESS-STRAIN MODELS FOR STRUCTURAL STEEL UNDER TRANSIENT HEATING CONDITION
Published: 6/11/2014
Authors: Lisa Yong yae Choe, William E Luecke, John L Gross
Abstract: The finite-element method (FEM) requires accurate constitutive models for predicting the behaviour of steel components, structural members, or systems subjected to fire. As part of the World Trade Centre collapse investigation, the National Institu ...

2. BEHAVIOR OF STEEL COMPONENTS SUBJECTED TO LOCALIZED FIRE
Published: 6/11/2014
Authors: Chao Zhang, John L Gross, Lisa Yong yae Choe
Abstract: Recent numerical studies on the behavior of steel components subjected to a localized fire are presented. Sequentially coupled thermo-mechanical simulations were conducted to predict the steel temperature distribution, the deformation mode and fa ...

4. 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 ...
