EMINENT ENGINEERS TO LEAD FORENSIC ENGINEERING TEAMS TO INVESTIGATE
SEPTEMBER 11 TRAGEDIES IN NEW YORK CITY AND WASHINGTON, DC; ENGINEERS
APPEAL FOR VIDEO FOOTAGE TO AID INVESTIGATION
EVENT DESCRIPTION: The American Society of Civil Engineers
(ASCE) is funding the formation of two forensic teams to study the
catastrophic collapse of the World Trade Center towers and the extensive
damage to the Pentagon. Following search and recovery efforts, the
teams will go to the scenes of the attacks to gain a better understanding
of the chain of events. They will study the response of the buildings
to the attacks in order to learn what improvements need to be made
to the design of future structures.
This briefing via teleconference is convened by the ASCE to announce
the principal investigators of the World Trade Center collapse forensic
engineering and the Pentagon attack forensic engineering study.
Engineers will appeal directly to media for attack footage of the
tragedy to aid in the investigation.
