These columns were severed at the second floor, which was also damaged at this location. To the south, fa¸c¸ade panels were also damaged. 4(a)). The limestone fa¸cade was blackened by smoke for more than 200 ft to the north of the impact point. 4(b)). Evidence of fire damage was less severe to the south and even immediately adjacent to the impact area the fa¸cade to the south showed little evidence of fire damage. 5a. ) (a) Designation of wedges in the renovation The west facade ¸ of the Pentagon was severely scarred by debris impact, particularly to the south of the collapse area.

Two issues of structural performance commanded attention in this study. First, the collapse that did occur was not immediate; this calls for an examination of the interaction between fire and structural performance. Second, many of the first-storey columns in a portion of the structure that remained standing were destroyed during the crash. Such performance is desirable, and the reasons for it are of interest to the engineering profession. In general, the first-floor interior columns were severely damaged immediately adjacent to the collapse area on the north side of the expansion joint on column line 11 in Ring E.
