41. Passive Fire Protection. Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (NIST NCSTAR 1-6A) ***DRAFT for Public Comments***
Series: National Construction Safety Team Act Reports (NIST NCSTAR)
Report Number: 1-6A
Published: 9/1/2005
Authors: Nicholas J. Carino, M A. Starnes, John L Gross, Jiann C Yang, S R. Kukuck, Kuldeep R Prasad, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: This report deals with the passive fire protection used in the World Trade Center (WTC) towers. The main objective is to provide background information that can be used to assess the in-place conditions of the passive protection before and after airc ...

42. Report of the NIST Workshop on Automated Steel Construction
Published: 9/1/2002
Authors: Alan M. (Alan M.) Lytle, Kamel S Saidi, William C Stone, John L Gross
Abstract: The Building and Fire Research Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in cooperation with the American Institute of Steel Construction, sponsored a workshop on automated steel construction. The purpose of the workshop was ...

43. Retrofit of Pre-Northridge Moment-Resisting Connections
Published: 4/1/2000
Authors: S A Civjan, M D Engelhardt, John L Gross
Abstract: An experimental program was undertaken to evaluate methods to retrofit existing steel moment connections for improved seismic performance. Six full-scale subassemblages were tested under cyclic loading. Typical pre-Northridge connections were retrofi ...

44. Seismic Rehabilitation Design of Steel Moment Connection with Welded Haunch
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: Q -S Yu, Chia-Ming Uang, John L Gross
Abstract: This paper describes a design procedure for the seismic rehabilitation of pre-Northridge steel moment connections using a welded haunch. Experimental results from cyclic testing of full-scale specimens demonstrated that welding a triangular haunch be ...

45. Slab Effects in SMRF Retrofit Connection Tests
Published: 3/1/2001
Authors: S A Civjan, M D Engelhardt, John L Gross
Abstract: A series of six full-scale subassemblages were tested to investigate dogbone and haunch retrofits for pre-Northridge steel moment connections. Tests included matched pairs of specimens, one bare steel and one including composite slab. Data were colle ...
