The Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) today announced details of its $16 million, 24-month federal building and fire safety investigation to study the structural failure and subsequent progressive collapse of several World Trade Center (WTC) buildings following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, in New York City. The study of WTC Buildings 1 and 2 ("The Twin Towers") and WTC Building 7 will focus on the building construction, the materials used and all of the technical conditions that contributed to the outcome of the WTC disaster.
NIST already has completed much of the planning work for the investigation and has consulted extensively with the public concerning its scope. Recent passage of an emergency supplemental appropriations bill now enables NIST to move ahead with the study.
NIST expects to complete its investigation and issue a final report within an estimated 24 months from the start of the program.
