This appendix presents background information on the fire and life safety aspects of buildings for the interested reader. This review of fire behavior outlines burning characteristics of materials as well as the effect of building characteristics on the temperatures experienced. The description of the effect of fire exposure on steel and concrete structural members is intended to improve understanding of how these structural members respond when heated and also what measures are commonly used to limit temperature rise in structural members. Finally, a brief discussion on evacuation behavior in high-rise buildings is included to provide some context to the comments made in the report concerning the design of the means of egress and the evacuation process in WTC 1 and WTC 2.
