22. Fire Induced Thermal and Structural Response of the World Trade Center Towers
Published: 9/26/2008
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Anthony P Hamins, Therese P McAllister, John L Gross
Abstract: Over the past several years, there has been a resurgence of interest in studying the response of building structures to fires. Typically, the thermal loading for structural analysis of a building subject to fire is obtained from a standard time-tempe ...

23. 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 ...

28. 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 ...
