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. A Study of Thermal Behavior of a Composite Floor System in Standard Fire Resistance Tests
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1771
Published: 10/26/2012
Authors: Dilip K Banerjee, John L Gross
Abstract: This report summarizes the characterization of the furnace thermal environment and thermal behavior of members during the fire tests. Additionally, numerical results from a heat transfer finite element model of a representative section of the flo ...

3. AISC Design Guide No. 12 Modification of Existing Welded Steel Moment Frame Connections for Seismic Resistance
Published: 5/1/2001
Author: John L Gross
Abstract: The Congressional emergency appropriation resulting from the January 17, 1994, Northridge earthquake provided the Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) an opportunity to expand its a ...

4. An Integrated Interactive Visualization and Analysis Environment to study the Impact of Fire on Building Structures
Published: 7/25/2010
Authors: Dilip K Banerjee, John L Gross, Pradeep Reddy Gaddam, Thomas M Olano, William J. Hess, Judith Ellen Terrill, Terence J Griffin, John G Hagedorn, John T. Kelso, Steven G Satterfield
Abstract: We have created an integrated interactive visualization and analysis environment, that can be used immersively or on the desktop, to study the interaction among fire, heat transfer, and structural deformation computed from three linked simulations. ...

5. Analysis of Structural Response of WTC 7 to Fire and Sequential Failures Leading to Collapse
Published: 6/17/2009
Authors: Therese P McAllister, Robert S. MacNeill, Omer O Erbay, Andrew T Sarawit, Mehdi S Zarghamee, Steven W Kirkpatrick, John L Gross
Abstract: This paper presents the structural analysis approach used and results obtained during the investigation conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to model the sequence of fire-induced damage and failures leading to the gl ...

6. Applications of the NIST ROBOCRANE.
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, James S. Albus, Adam S Jacoff, John L Gross, N Pagalakis
Abstract: The Robot Systems Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has recently been experimenting with a variety of applications for the NIST ROBOCRANE. The ROBOCRANE design utilizes the basic idea of the Stewart Platform parall ...

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 ...

8. Behavior of Unrestrained and Restrained Steel Columns Adjacent to Localized Fire
Published: 12/12/2014
Authors: Chao Zhang, John L Gross, Therese P McAllister, Guo-Qiang Li
Abstract: Steel columns may be exposed to thermal radiation from localized burning of a fire source nearby. Current structural fire design methods are based on uniform heating and, therefore, uniform temperature conditions, and no practicable methods are p ...

9. Best Practice Guidelines for Structural Fire Resistance Design of Concrete and Steel Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1681
Published: 12/1/2010
Authors: Long Thanh Phan, John L Gross, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: This document is intended to provide practicing engineers and building code officials with a technical resource that contains the current best practice for fire-resistant design of concrete and steel structures. The report provides a review of exi ...
