11. Cross-sectional stability of structural steel at elevated temperatures
Published: 4/19/2012
Authors: Therese P McAllister, Mina Samir Seif
Abstract: There is a lack of understanding of how structural systems perform under realistic, uncontrolled fires. Current specifications for the design of steel structures in the US do not include fire effects as part of structural design. Instead, fire pr ...

12. 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 ...

13. 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 ...

14. Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Floods, Every Day Failures and 1500 Miles of Levee - Risk Analysis Experiences and Lessons
Published: 10/1/2009
Authors: Martin W McCann , Said Salah-Mars, Jerry L Foster, Gregory B Baecher, Robert C Patev, Harvey W Jones, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: By the first quarter of 2006, two risk studies of major levee systems (over 1500 miles of levee) in the U.S. were underway. The IPET Risk and Reliability Analysis was a retrospective analysis and the DRMS was a prospective analysis intended to suppo ...

16. Experiments and Modeling of Structural Steel Elements Exposed to Fire (Appendices D-G). Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (NIST NCSTAR 1-5B)
Series: National Construction Safety Team Act Reports (NIST NCSTAR)
Report Number: 1-5
Published: 9/1/2005
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Alexander Maranghides, Kevin B McGrattan, Erik L Johnsson, Thomas J. Ohlemiller, Michelle K Donnelly, Jiann C Yang, George William Mulholland, Kuldeep R Prasad, S R. Kukuck, Robert Anleitner, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: Reconstructing the fires and their impact on structural components in the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings on September 11, 2001, requires extensive use of computational models. For the use of such models to be a viable investigative tool, it is es ...

19. Experiments and Modeling of Unprotected Structural Steel Elements Exposed to a Fire
Published: 9/18/2005
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Kevin B McGrattan, Kuldeep R Prasad, Alexander Maranghides, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: A large-scale fire experiment was conducted to assess the accuracy of a combination of gas and solid-phase models designed to predict the temperatures of structural steel elements exposed to a fire. The experiment involved a 2 MW heptane spray fire i ...
