Initial Model for Fires in the World Trade Center Towers

May 1, 2002
Author(s)
Ronald G. Rehm, William M. Pitts, D D. Evans, Kuldeep R. Prasad, Kevin B. McGrattan, Glenn P. Forney
Mathematical models have been used to provide an initial estimate the behavior of the fires in the twin towers of the World Trade Center (WTC) on September 11, 2001. Available photographs and videos have provided an initial estimate of the exterior damage

Initial Model for Fires in the World Trade Center Towers (NISTIR 6879)

May 1, 2002
Author(s)
Ronald G. Rehm, William M. Pitts, Howard R. Baum, D D. Evans, Kuldeep R. Prasad, Kevin B. McGrattan, Glenn P. Forney
Based on preliminary assumptions and analysis, mathematical models have been used to estimate the behavior of the fires in the twin towers of the World Trade Center (WTC) on September 11, 2001. The hijacked-plane collision with each tower produced

Fire Structure Interface for the World Trade Center Towers

Author(s)
Kuldeep R. Prasad, Howard R. Baum
The collapse of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001, resulting from a combination of aircraft impact damage and subsequent fires, was studied as part of the Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster

Localized Ignition and Subsequent Flame Spread Over Solid Fuels in Microgravity

Author(s)
Takashi Kashiwagi, Y N. Nakamura, Kuldeep R. Prasad, Howard R. Baum, S L. Olson, O -. Fujita, K K. Nishizawa, K. Ito
Ignition and subsequent flame spread over a paper sample and a PMMA sheet in microgravity are studied experimentally and theoretically. New results obtained during last two years are described.

Real Fire Performance of Partition Assemblies: Insulated and Non-Insulated Assemblies

Author(s)
Samuel L. Manzello, Richard G. Gann, S R. Kukuck, Kuldeep R. Prasad, Walter W. Jones
Two gypsum wall assemblies were exposed to intense real-scale compartment fires, from the time of ignition to beyond flashover. The construction of each assembly (2.44 m by 2.44 m) was identical, with the exception that one of the wall assemblies was

Simulating Fire Dynamics and Thermal Response of Structural Elements

Author(s)
Kuldeep R. Prasad, Howard R. Baum
Simulation of the effects of severe fires on the structural integrity of builings requires a close coupling between the gas phase energy release andtransport phenomena and the stress analysis in the load bearing materials. The connection between the two is

Structural Analysis of a High-Rise Composite Frame Exposed to Fire

Author(s)
Dat Duthinh, Kuldeep R. Prasad
This paper presents a simplified, planar analysis of World Trade Center Tower 1 (WTC1), starting from a computer simulation of the fire using computational fluid dynamics, and progressing through a thermal and a structural analysis of the damaged structure
