i would like to see an accurat(ish) scale model reproduction of the impact, subsequent fires and collapse.

even a "runaway collapse" duplicated under laboratory conditions would ease my mind. especially the tower seven collapse. i want to see a concrete and steel building go into to perfect footprint freefall because of a few spot fires on upper floors, and assymetrical structural damage.

wishful thinking, eh?

i will get around to reading at least some of this report, but the thing is, it's not that relevant to a conspiracy theorist. if it had been a study done by conspiracy theorists, i'm quite sure the report would look diametrically different.

it would ask tough questions like, "why the fudge did you destroy all the evidence? my reputation as a scientist is on the line, and you're asking me to come to a foregone conclusion based on flimsy evidence"

and this IS the crux of the matter. the whole mission of the NIST report is to determine how exactly how the crashes caused the towers to fall. that is a foregone conclusion, and all data will be viewed in that light. any data that conflicts with that conclusion will be ignored as erroneous.

"hey! you foxes and wolves and weasels over there! we need someone to guard the henhouse! any takers?"

Billybob, did you even bother to scan through those reports?

That is exactly what they did. They created computer models using known properties of the building materials, the structural design of the building, the aircraft, and established engineering principles. They then ran various simulations while varying the parameters to establish a range of possible outcomes. They then compared those outcomes to observed events associated withthe towers and 9/11.

Oh, wait, did you expect them to build it out of balsa wood and paper mache?
Maybe then, instead of two airplanes, they could of had a man in a Godzilla suit smash them.

so it says 'doors and walls were blown out All the Way down to the basement' and there were 'flash fires' in the lobby?


LOL that is totally consistant with building demolition from my point of view



That is very consistent with a jet fuel fireball explosion in the core area, to my point of view.

Remember the fireball that exploded outside the building in WTC2? well that was from the right wing only. Imagine that blasting down inside the core area?



***i am not a demolition expert or architecht; but i have taken physics and chemistry for multiple years so im not totally retarded

Good, then you can tell us the volume of superheated gases produced when 10,000 gallons of jet fuel ignites.



why are they giving us so much to go with? lol
its like they want us to Know something fishy is going on
like they are trying very hard to tell us
without saying it outright


Well, go ahead and work up the math and prove that it is fishy.

For representations of things smashing or collapsing or falling with scientific wonderment and engineering SFX, the following represent the quality positions of Popular Mechanics March 2005 and the 9/11 truth movement, respectively:

not yet. i'm just letting it be known right off that they are fitting the data to a foregone conclusion. ie. that there were no bombs, and that the building fell down because it was weakened. from there it is just a matter of saying, "we need more jet fuel concentrated in this area, how can we get it there? i know! elevator shafts! we can have it going up and down the eleveator shafts, we can have it pooling on some floors, and we can have it concentrating all of it's energy on exposed beams. yeah, that sounds pretty good! have a cigar, howard!".

i know your saying they had great computer models going on, and i won't doubt you. but, i'm not a programmer, so i wouldn't know how to disprove or prove the accuracy of their models. i'm sure there is someone somewhere who can, though. it's only a matter of time until someone comes out and "debunks" these reports, which i'm sure ARE loaded with accurate information.

it's gonna take me a while to download that stuff and go over it. believe it or not, i do have a life outside ats. i'm a stunt actor. i dress up in rubber suits and smash little toy tanks with my big rubber shoes.

don't worry, howard. i'll read it, in time.

You are right. The fundamental law of computer programming or modelling remains to this day: GIGO.

How about we get enough people or at least one very very generous person to create enough financial power to rebuild exact replicas of the WTC in some remote desert area and then purchase exact model airplanes used in the attacks stocked with MAX fuel and then conduct 911 Version 2.0 and on global TV crash the planes into the towers at the exact points that they did using remote controlled technology WHICH HAS LONG BEEN AVAILABLE and wait for them to collapse.

I bet you that the towers will not collapse and the fire will eventually burn itself out. If this were done and all the evidence pointed towards the Govt. Inside Job theory I BET some ridiculously lame excuse would still be used. Hell I'm even for stocking the planes with 19 of our top government officials if the country is down for it. LET'S RECREATE 911 AND SEE IF PLANES INTO BUILDINGS CAN REALLY BRING THEM DOWN OR NOT

Do you really expect a government agency to come out and admit it was a controlled demolition?

If you do then you are really naive as far as how government does things.


Do you know how large the government is?? Is everyone in on it??

Wow do people miss the point or what?

Did you miss the part about any evidence that would point to wards a controlled demolition was either taken away or suppressed, long before NIST did their little evaluation?

Everybody doesn't have to be "in on it", the government works by purposely not letting anybody know the full picture of what they are doing.
They only know the bit they work on and can't grasp the full picture, just like some people here on ATS.
They may even know some of what's going on, just like some people on ATS.
But we're slaves to a system we can't get away from.
Lot's of people in the government know "something" is going on, in fact I've found more government workers who don't trust their employer, than the rest of the population.
But we are made to feel powerless next to the government.
We are told in many different ways that if we didn't have them (government) we would all fall apart.
They create situations (Pearl Harbour, Waco, Federal building bombing, 9-11, terrorist threat etc...) in order to keep the world in a state of perpetual chaos and confusion. That gives the government power.
Through our fear of a perceived enemy, created by agency's of our government, government convinces us that we need them to protect us. Keep up the pretence of a threat by releasing random terrorist threats that never pan out.
Keep the population in a state of fear, it makes them very easy to control.
The government wants more power? It feels the population is getting negative feeling to wards it? Create more chaos and confusion. Keep the population thinking about, and in fear, of anything other than it self.

The only people who know the full picture of what all the little pieces do are those at the top.

That's why government IS so big... The thinner they spread their dirty work, the less chance of someone putting the pieces together.

Enjoy what little freedom you have now, cause you won't have even that much longer, unless people wake up. Phat chance of that eh?

AP&F...

actually phat is our BEST chance, anok. if you can find a copy of "phatic communion with bob dobbs", you MIGHT understand why.

here's a primer....

someone has a flat tire, and is parked at the side of the highway. you walk over and say, "got a flat?".

phatic communication is, in this case, the verbalisation of an understood communion which has already happened. you have shared something beyond the meaning of the words. you, in fact, sir, are QUITE PHAT! i recommend a strict media fast for maximum health benefits.

I'm aware of UL's attempts to help, including performing tests on models of the floor assemblies. But the results of these tests appear to indicate that the buildings should have easily withstood the thermal stress caused by pools of burning jet fuel.

We know that the steel components were certified to ASTM E119. The time temperature curves for this standard require the samples to be exposed to temperatures around 2000F for several hours. And as we all agree, the steel applied met those specifications. Additionally, I think we can all agree that even un-fireproofed steel will not melt until reaching red-hot temperatures of nearly 3000F (2). Why Dr. Brown would imply that 2000F would melt the high-grade steel used in those buildings makes no sense at all.

The results seem to clear things up (3), rule out weak steel as a contributing factor in the collapse." you noted that the samples available were adequate for the investigation. Your comments suggest that the steel was probably exposed to temperatures of only about 500F (250C), which is what one might expect from a thermodynamic analysis of the situation.

However the summary of the new NIST report seems to ignore your findings, as it suggests that these low temperatures caused exposed bits of the building’s steel core to "soften and buckle."
"most perimeter panels (157 of 160) saw no temperature above 250C." To soften steel for the purposes of forging, normally temperatures need to be above1100C (6). However, this new summary report suggests that much lower temperatures were be able to not only soften the steel in a matter of minutes, but lead to rapid structural collapse.

This story just does not add up. If steel from those buildings did soften or melt, I’m sure we can all agree that this was certainly not due to jet fuel fires of any kind, let alone the briefly burning fires in those towers. That fact should be of great concern to all Americans.

. Please do what you can to quickly eliminate the confusion regarding the ability of jet fuel fires to soften or melt structural steel.



sorry for the long quote...I tried to cut it down to its meat.

Good points for both sides...
let us not ignore the fact that this person works for the water and environment part of the UL, not the engineering part. So he has added personal to his proffessional interest. (which is why he was probably fired)

But he does know his facts. This does seem to be the smoking gun...

If UL labs says the towers should have stayed up during the fire, then they should have. (according to tests and engineering analysis of thermal metalurgical specifics)
I challenge any person OR ENGINEER to show that they (U.L labs) are wrong...

sorry Howard... but even OTS cant save you against the great god U.L...

...they say jet fuel wouldn't even come close to causing the collapse...

We already know they pulled WTC7. For anyone that has watched the demolition experts on Discovery Channel, you know they can't safely pull a structure without quite a bit of planning and foot work. WTC7 was pulled picture perfect. This brings the obvious conclusion that WTC7 was rigged to blow prior to the events of 911.

Silverstein himself gave us the smoking gun right there. The other towers don't even need to be mentioned.

What an amazing example of circular logic.

There is NO evidence that explosives were the cause of the collapse of any buildings on 9/11, in spite of the wishful, fanciful and uninformed speculations by many on this forum.

There is Howie, and you've seen it. You're just too narrow-minded and.....there's not even a good word to describe you.....to see beyond what CNN, FOXNews, White House Press Conferences, and Daddy Rumsfeld tell you.

You are part of the group that believes our government is inherently good.

Sadly, you are wrong, and deep down, past all your patriotism, and dreams....you know it. One day you'll see and realize it for yourself, as have I.

What gag order?

That is one of the biggest myths of 9/11 out there. There is no gag order.

Think about it. The rank and file firefighters of New York lost 343 of their brothers, fathers and best friends that day. Do you really believe that a gag order would stop them from talking about it if they really believed that their was a conspiracy involved?

If you do believe this, then you are truly uninformed about human nature and the personality types that become firemen.

Show me the article that says it's a 'myth' Howard?

While your at it, start answering some of the other posts which have caught you out rather than shooting at what you think are easy targets. You made the 'challange' to defy the NIST report you posted and some people have but you've ignored their posts. Whats your game Howard? Why not address AdamJ's posts?

There's no point trying to convince you of anything anyway. You have your FEMA and NIST reports and are happy to settle with those. Others like to listen to people that their and involved and that means listening to Firefighters who said there were bombs or translators who were told to stop translating etc etc.
