On the morning of 11 September 2001, hijackers crashed a commercial plane into the Pentagon.  Following that attack, the American Society of Civil Engineers established a building performance study (BPS) team to examine the structural performance of the Pentagon in the crash and the subsequent fire.  SGH served on the six-member BPS team, who authored The Pentagon Building Performance Report.
