nope SORRY , CONCRETE AND STEEL.....buddy!
and BETTER DESIGN/TECHNOLOGY



Do you know the differences in the designs, materials and construction methods of the two buildings?

How about comparing the Empire State Building with the WTC towers on the following points:

What kind of passive fireproofing were used?

What types of cladding were used?

What types of floor beams?

What types of collumns?

How thic are/were the the floor slabs?

Howard, I do not make outlandish claims about my knowlegdeg of light refraction as
you do. Moot point. You just like ot chime into ANY thread, question the single weakest argument then proceed with your derailment.



What outlandish claims? The principles of light refraction are really fairly simple to understand. They are usually covered in basic physics classes.

www.sasked.gov.sk.ca...

One doesn’t really need to know all that if you were to just realize that he whole idea that the bowing is actually light refraction is based on the assumption that there is a perfectly smooth bubble of hot air outside the building.




Why will no one speak to:

The FACT that the models used HORRIBLY unrealistic math and inputs?


For example?




- The fact the NIST FORCES THE ASSUMPTION that "global collapse" is "inevitable" following "collapse initation"? (A ludicrious claim)


Why is that ludicrous? Please provide the engineerin assessment by a licensed structural engineer that shows this.




- "The structure below the level of the collapse initiation offered minimal resistance to the falling building mass at and above the impact zone." WHAT? This makes no sense. Please clarify. When WTC2 camre down, the top 30 floors tilted and were not even collapsing onto the lower floors that apparently and magically offer "minimal resistance".


It’s called inertia.






- Why does the NIST ADMIT they looked for evidence of "missiles" but never claim to have suspected the sulphidation of steel to be related to thermite (far more likely)?


Why is it more likely? What about other sources of sulfur in the building and the environment? Furthermore, there is no evidence that the sulfidation occurred prior to the collapse.

I do not see a 'case' where they "Increased tower strength 20%" , "Decrease Plane speed 29MPH" or "Decreaase fuel load 25%"...

Why are ALL of the inputs padded in "their"direction?

My FAVORITE is "Decrease Tower Strength 20%"


OR "Decrease Tower Live Load 20%"...

Who other than the NIST would not also model using the OPPOSITE inputs that would all CLEARLY show that they had to make up numbers to make their made up sequence work.

Why does the NIST fail to make any of your arguments Howard? They don't say "it could have been from cutting torchs" or "wall board". They do niot support you one bit. They claim it is a MYSTERY to them. They could not figure it out with $20,000,000 but you CLEARLY have it all solved for them? "

Where exactly did that table come from? Do you have page numbers? I just did a quick scan through the NIST report again and I didn't find it.

What you seem to be missing here is that they changed the inputs on their computer models to fit the observed data. If a hypothesis does not fit the observed data then according to the scientific method it is wrong.

Again, would you be happier if the model did not fit the data?

Please elaborate on why this is bad math, and horribly unrealistic. You show us this table and expect us to take your word that this table represents bad math.

Why don't you show us more precisely what you mean. The report goes into detail on the different cases used in their computer simulation. They certainly didn't hide the fact that they tried different scenarios and then used the ones that fit the data.

It's called science.

“their direction?” You probablu meant to say that they adjusted the parameters (within acceptable ranges) until the model matched the observed and documented sequences of events, didn’t you?

That’s how models work. If they don’t produce results that match reality, you tweak them until they do.

So are you saying that the top 30 floors weren't bearing down on those floors even if they were tilting? The footprint of each tower was over an acre if I am not mistaken. The majority of each of those floors were hitting the floors below them in some manner even with some tilt going on. Even if an entire 2/3 of the floors (20 stories) weren't involved 10 floors smacking down would have been enough to start the ball rolling downward. The remaining floors were not engineered to withstand that scale of force. They could withstand partial collapses of a floor or two, not a sudden massive collapse of multiple floors hence the term they used; "minimal resistance".

Because it was basically meaningless and 2 areas constitute a minor anomoly and could by no streatch of the imagination have any bearing on the collapse.

Look at the pictures of the top block of WTC 2. The VAST majority does not appear to be "Bearing dow" on anything but the street. So... NO. It certainlly did NOT have the symmetry required for the ensuing straight down clooapse.

Source? All I see in the videos is exploding pulverization of everything. I see NO evidence of crushing from above, "thrash compacting" or pancaking.

HOW would anything be SMACKING down UNLESS floors were removed by some other force? THERE IS NO MAGICAL INSTANTANEOUS ACCELERATION CAUSING TIS "smacking" you claim.

Could you please use some more precise terms regarding the forces?

They adjusted the inputs until they achieved the "PRE-DRWAN CONCLUSIOB" not until the matched the "OBSERVED AND DOCUMENTED EVENTS"... had they they would have explained where all of the energy came from to pulverize concrete, etc.

They never even explain how their initial estimates of loads, etc. could be SO FAR OFF. For $20,000,000 they cannot calculate the these variables within a 20% margin of error?

Who are you kidding Roark? 20% is not a "tweak" it is manufacturing evidence.

That is WHAT I AM SAYING. Where is case E and F that are the "miminmal" scenario in whidh the towers do not collapse? A and C do NOT produce a collapse in the "normal" scenario so they went to "severe" and that was the ONLY way to produce the "evidence" for their pre-drawn conclusion.


Originally posted by vushta

20% is a VERY LAGRE margin of error... then combine that with the other adjustments and the math becomes UNREALISTIC. "Say the towers were FAR weaker than we calculated... THEN say the planes hit HARDER than we calculated.... Then say there were more combustables than we calculated, then say the attack angle is changed to create more damage and VIOLA! We can make it collapse... barely in the most severe case."

Retarted.

Are you suggesting that the top of WTC2 sheared completely off and slid entirely off the footprint of the rest of the WTC? Explain to me how that is occurring, the amount of energy required for all of those floors of 208 ft. by 208ft. to move entirely off it's footprint without any of it hitting said footprint must be staggering.



HOW would anything be SMACKING down UNLESS floors were removed by some other force? THERE IS NO MAGICAL INSTANTANEOUS ACCELERATION CAUSING TIS "smacking" you claim.

By smacking I am referring to the mass of multiple floors adding their weight to a structurally intact existing floor without the support structure those falling floors had. There is no way a single floor is designed to take such a load, even if it is over engineered. I guess the term smacking implies speed, that was not my intent, just a word to describe the visual in my mind.

Sorry about the math this is the easiest way for me to explain my viewpoint.

This is nowhere near my area of expertise, let me know what you think about my estimates. Keep it at a reasonable debate level as I am hopefully trying to answer your questions.

I am not sure what you are asking for but given that the WTC was 208 x 208 and a average weight per sq. foot of floor being 50 pounds you get 2,163,200 lbs per floor assuming 43264 sq. ft. per floor, 4 inch concrete at 12.5 lbs per sq ft.


The numbers are estimates as I don't know about the dimensions ect of the core. For 30 floors that is 64,896,000 lbs. even if only 5% of the 30 floors hit that would be 3,244,800 of extra weight that the floor had to support. That's only 1.5 floors, more likely that at least 15% (if not more) of the mass of the 30 floors fell unto intact floors. That would be 9,734,400 lbs laying on that floor. I contend that the existing intact floors could not support that kind of weight. Each successive collapse of a floor would add more to the weight coming down on the next.

Could someone provide me with an estimate of what kind of maximum load a single WTC floor could withstand. I saw one someplace then didn't bookmark the site. Thanks

Thanks, but your core assumption that if ONE FLOOR were to collapse that all would collapse, straight down is FLAWED. It is NOT only on floor offering RESISTANE... It is 1000 FEET of BOX STEEL COLUMS anchored in BEDROCK.

The math you offer is moot as you assume that if one floor is removed that there will be some sort of "terminal energy" that the structure could not arrest. This assumption is not supported by the design of the building.

Exactly.

They plug in all the variables as they would have been on 9/11, and can get nothing to happen. So they keep cranking them up until they reproduce what we saw.

Only one problem: They didn't reproduce what we saw on 9/11.

They didn't even try to reproduce any pancake collapses, ie show how exactly any of that would have actually worked once the first floor failed.

They just tried to show how the first floor could have failed (if reality ever matched those baseless parameter "tweaks"), padded by some thousands of pages of crap. And that was a damned breakthrough for you guys, wasn't it?



Maybe in five more years you guys and your federal agencies can model how the SECOND floor managed to collapse without explosives.
