it has been proven time and time again that computer simulations can be horribly inaccurate.
there are just to many variables to calculate. this leads me to the conclusion that the simulation i just witnessed is to say the very least a
terrible representation of true to life physics.
i have seen this before and i have to say yes, the planes do atomize, and yes this particular test is against a wall designed to absorb impact but the
principal is essentially the same. An air plane VS a Sky scraper.
200 tons of jumbo jet vs 350,000 tons of cement and concreteat point of impact. at 500 MPH the plane would be hitting with like 200,000,000 pounds of
force thats alot.
ofcourse alot of that energy is dispersed over the area of impact not on one general point. from what i hear correct me if im wrong, the central
column of the WTC was pretty mch solid cement and steel, really thick hardened steel. i dont know the ratio just seems uneven in light of the plane. i
can imagine it doing untold amounts of damage, but i just dont know about knocking it down fire or no fire. even the engineers were suprised.
