Civil Engineers Comment on NIST WTC Report Recommendations

Engineers caution that standards are not a full "how to" protect building from plane strikes


ASCE and FEMA published The World Trade Center Building Performance Study: Data Collection, Preliminary Observations and Recommendations in May 2002. The report was produced by a team of 25 leading structural and fire protection engineers and presented at a hearing of the House Science Committee. The team called for further study into the collapse of the buildings-resulting in the NIST study released today.
