61. Structural Response of World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2 and 7 to Impact and Fire Damage
Published: 10/18/2012
Authors: Therese P McAllister, John L Gross, Fahim Sadek, Steven W Kirkpatrick, Robert S. MacNeill, Mehdi S Zarghamee, Omer O Erbay, Andrew T Sarawit
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducted an extensive investigation of the collapse of World Trade Center towers (WTC 1 and WTC 2) and the WTC 7 building. This paper describes the component, subsystem, and global analyses p ...

62. Summary of the Structural Performance of Single-Family, Wood-Frame Housing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6224
Published: 9/1/1998
Authors: Charles William Clay Yancey, Geraldine S Cheok, Fahim Sadek, B Mohraz
Abstract: A review of the structural performance of single-family, wood-frame houses is presented. The performance of these structures in selected earthquakes and hurricanes is summarized. In general, wood-frame houses performed well with relatively few inst ...

63. Testing and Analysis of Steel Beam-Column Assemblies under Column Removal Scenarios
Published: 5/6/2009
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Joseph A Main, Hai Sang Lew, Stephen D Robert, Vincent Chiarito
Abstract: This paper presents an experimental and analytical assessment of the performance of steel beam-column assemblies with two types of moment-resisting connections under vertical displacement of a center column, simulating a column removal scenario. The ...

64. Testing and Analysis of Steel and Concrete Beam-Column Assemblies under a Column Removal Scenario
Published: 9/1/2011
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Joseph A Main, Hai Sang Lew, Yihai Bao
Abstract: This paper presents an experimental and computational assessment of the performance of steel and reinforced concrete beam-column assemblies under vertical displacement of a center column, simulating a column removal scenario. The assemblies represent ...

65. Time-Dependent Wind Effects: Database-Assisted Design and Estimation of Ultimate Limit States for Rigid and Flexible Structures
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu, S Jong, L W Lu
Abstract: We describe the database-assisted design approach for wind loading, and its application for estimating limit states including ultimate limit states for low-rise buildings and tall buildings experiencing along-wind, across-wind, and torsional dyna ...

66. Ultimate Capacities of Low-Rise Steel Frames in Turbulent Wind
Published: 7/1/2001
Authors: S Jang, L L Lu, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: This paper is a derivative of G2001-1392, Database-Assisted Wind Load Capacity Estimates for Low-Rise Steel Frames, by Jang, S., et al., intended for publication in the Journal of Structural Engineering.The original paper's abstract was:A comparative ...

68. Wind Effects on High-Rise Buildings: Database-Assisted Design Versus the High-Frequency Force-Balance Technique
Published: Date unknown
Authors: M Iancovici, Michael A Riley, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Database-assisted design (DAD) was originally developed for low-rise buildings. In this paper we show that it applies to flexible high-rise buildings as well, and that it has a number of significant advantages over the high frequency force balance (H ...

69. Wind Speed Estimation Uncertainties: Effects of Climatological and Micrometeorological Parameters
Published: Date unknown
Authors: S M Diniz, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: To achieve structures that are risk-consistent, structural reliability methods must be used that account for uncertainties with respect to the relevant parameters affecting the estimation of wind effects. In this paper we obtain measures of uncertai ...

70. Wind Speeds for the Estimation of World Trade Center Towers' Response
Published: Date unknown
Authors: William P. Fritz, Fahim Sadek, Emil Simiu
Abstract: Estimates of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers response to wind by two North American wind engineering laboratories differed from each other by almost 40 %. A recent investigation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology determined th ...
