15 was located more than 15 ft away from the column. Surprisingly, the building did not collapse. Why?

Sinno9 attempted to conduct a definitive study of the ultimate behavior of the connection. His laboratory tests identified five possible failure modes, including a fracture of the rod and four failure modes in the column material and welds.
