22. STRUCTURAL RESPONSE OF WTC 7 FLOOR SYSTEMS TO FIRE
Published: 5/12/2010
Author: Therese P McAllister
Abstract: The WTC 7 investigation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) identified several factors that alone, or in combination, led to fire-induced failures of the floors, and subsequently, total collapse of the 47-story WTC 7 building ...

26. Global Structural Analysis of the Response of World Trade Center Building 7 to Fires and Debris Impact Damage, Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (NIST NCSTAR 1-9A)
Series: National Construction Safety Team Act Reports (NIST NCSTAR)
Published: 11/20/2008
Authors: Robert S. MacNeill, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: This report analyzes the global response of WTC 7 to fire-induced structural failures and the resulting sequence of component and subsystem failures to determine the events that led to the global collapse of the building. The analysis involved a fin ...

27. Structural Fire Response and Probable Collapse Sequence of World Trade Center Building 7, Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (NIST NCSTAR 1-9) VOLUMES 1 and 2
Series: National Construction Safety Team Act Reports (NIST NCSTAR)
Report Number: 1-9
Published: 11/20/2008
Author: Therese P McAllister
Abstract: This report provides technical documentation of how NIST reconstructed the effects of the events on September 11, 2001 on WTC 7. This includes how the fires that followed the impact of debris from the collapse of WTC 1 (the north tower) led to the c ...
