The objectives of work include: (1) Increase the
availability of technology for evaluating the methods of
fire/structural interaction that will be used to improve
the performance of structures under fire loads. (2)
Promote post disaster investigations of fires following
natural and technological disasters that enhance the
Panel's core competencies in structural fire
technologies. (3) Encourage the development and sharing
of research findings among the world's researchers and
practitioners on the behavior of structural systems to
