Albano, Leonard D.
No tragedy exemplifies structural collapse more than the World Trade Center disasters which alerted the world to the inhibition of predicting unstable structural situations involved in a major building fire. The purpose of this IQP is to develop the framework for a tutorial aiding firefighters with the concepts of building construction. Such a tutorial will be useful for firefighters to learn more about structural hazards during a fire leading eventually towards a greater understanding of building collapse.
