dc.description.abstractThis research was designed to investigate possible mechanisms that fires could initiate that might lead to collapse of a tall building of similar design to the WTC Towers. It was not designed to be a forensic study and no initial damage was applied to the structure. The effects of fire on long span, truss based floor systems was investigated both locally and globally using finite element models.en
