Excerpt
Excerpt: Infrastructure Reliability: Analysis of Structural Steel in the World Trade Center In 2002 NIST became the lead agency in the investigation of the World Trade Center collapse. The investigation addresses many aspects of the catastrophe, from occupant egress to factors affecting how long the Twin Towers stood after being hit by the airplanes, with a goal of gaining valuable information for the future. A critical aspect of the investigation is the metallurgical analysis of structural steels from the Twin Towers. The analysis includes characterization of properties, failure modes, and temperature excursions seen by the steel.
