SIMULATING FIRE EFFECTS IN LARGE BUILDINGS

Get access pages 1-15
DOI: 10.1615/TFESC1.pl.001

Abstract

The purpose of this lecture is to assess the current state of our ability to simulate the consequences of a fire in a large building, and suggest some areas where improvement is needed. Attention is focused on the coupling of fire dynamics simulations and heat transfer analyses to each other and to structural analyses of the damaged building. The methodology used in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) investigation into the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers will be described from this perspective.
