11. Analysis of Aircraft Impacts into the World Trade Center Towers (Chapters 9-11). Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (NIST NCSTAR 1-2B) ***DRAFT for Public Comments***
Series: National Construction Safety Team Act Reports (NIST NCSTAR)
Report Number: 1-2
Published: 9/1/2005
Authors: Steven W Kirkpatrick, Robert T. Bocchieri, Fahim Sadek, R A MacNeill, S Holmes, B D Peterson, R W Cilke, C Navarro
Abstract: The objective of this report was to analyze the aircraft impacts into each of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers to provide the following: (1) estimates of probable damage to structural systems due to aircraft impact, including exterior walls, floor ...

12. Assessment of Robustness and Disproportionate Collapse Vulnerability of Steel Moment-Frame Buildings
Published: 8/19/2009
Authors: Joseph A Main, Fahim Sadek, Hai Sang Lew
Abstract: Several prototype steel moment-frame buildings have been designed for the purpose of assessing their vulnerability to progressive collapse. The buildings were designed for moderate and high seismic regions. This paper summarizes the development of th ...

18. Data-Assisted Design for Wind Loading
Published: 6/1/2002
Authors: Emil Simiu, Fahim Sadek, T Whalen, S Jang, L L Lu, S M Diniz, A Grazini, Michael A Riley
Abstract: Current ASCE Standard provisions on wind loads for low-rise building design are based on wind tunnel tests conducted at the University of Western Ontario in the 1970's. In spite of the advances they entailed at the time, those provisions are inadequa ...

19. Database-Assisted Design for Wind: Basic Concepts and Software Development
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: T Whalen, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Standard provisions for wind loads on buildings have traditionally been based on summary tables and/or plots suitable for slide-rule calculations. The accuracy in the definition of wind loads inherent in such tables and plots is far lower than that i ...
