I'm not a structural engineer or anything like that, I've seen a few demolitions in my time, everyone does.
But the collapse of the World Trade Centre buildings don't have anything in common with other demolition's, wether controlled or structural failure,
and the question you've put forward makes me think that the difference of size comes into effect, Both Buildings were made of Glass and a steel
lattice structure. AND they were both extremely large constructions as most other demo's are mainly like small office blocks or tennement
Therefore the amount of debris sent out is going to be a lot larger than most other demolitions. Glass also pulverised adding to a cloud effect, I saw
the disaster on TV and I couldn't believe it , I thought that everything inside would be crushed to dust and there were little in remains dug out
from the rubble.
In an office environment don't forget that there would have been water bottles, and a supply of water for lavatories and for the fire suppression
system and if you ever watch a contruction site they're always watering down the dust , that makes it look oily as it's damp. And the dust carried
a long way. plus there was fuel from the aircraft ( if they hit at all before being detsroyed in the explosions) which caused fires so the fire
supression systems should've come on. Also on a more grisly point the human body is made up of a large percentage of water and the blood of the
2900+ victims ( Rest their Souls) added to the mixture as they're bodies were litterally pulped.
