And the iron in the steel was rendered to a liquid. What do you call that again?


"The thinning of the steel occurred by high temperature corrosion due to a combination of oxidation and sulfidation."

Do you agree with this statement?


Melting is a form of high temperature corrosion. So yes, that is accurate.

Corrosion, as described by your reference, was oxidation and sulfidation. When iron rusts, it is corrosion. You might not realize it, but melting is very different from corrosion.

I think were wasting our time trying to talk sense with this guy. You could honestly waste half your life on here arguing with shills...

In no way is this accurate. Melting is the breaking of bonds due to thermal energy. Corrosion is a chemical bonding process generally involving oxidation.

They are in no sense comparable.

And yet nobody has sufficiently explained where the sulfidation came from. That is damning in and of itself.

Which was also associated with the intergranular melting that FEMA describes. You are apparently totally incapable of linking these two thoughts together. You know psychologists have terms for this problem.

Every time you leave this information out you are effectively lying.


Why do you repeatedly deny that melting was involved, after you've already been forced to admit it did occur, and FEMA even states it explicitly?:


...A liquid eutectic mixture containing primarily iron



Evidence of a severe high temperature corrosion attack on the steel, including oxidation and sulfication with subsequent intragranular melting


www.fema.gov...



Again.... every time you INTENTIONALLY leave out the melting... YOU ARE LYING.

Please consult the FEMA report as shown above.

If you don't think this "corrosion" had anything to do with the intergranular melting according to the FEMA report then you either can't read or are lying as well.

The truth hurts when you're dead wrong, doesn't it?


To reiterate because I know you need it desperately...

"high temperature corrosion...INCLUDING...subsequent intergranular melting."

Next your denial is going to force you to rewrite your understanding of English grammar and the definition of the word "including" isn't it? You guys are doing a huge disservice to your cause by even being reduced to making such ignorant arguments instead of just admitting what I'm posting is completely validated by the government's own reports.

We've all read the FEMA and NIST reports on the issue, and we know what they say. The difference is you seem to think that the existence of any melting of anything iron based in any way is somehow damning to the 'official story'.

It isn't, and melting isn't corrosion. Happy to help.

Wall board is CaSO4.2H2O. A 4'x10' section of 5/8' wall board weighs about 110 pounds. Of that, about 20 pounds is sulfur. Every 4' of single sided wall is 20 pounds of sulfur. Double sided partition walls are 40# of sulfur. Conservatively estimating about 400 sheets per floor gives 8,000 pounds of sulfur per floor. About 100 stories gives 800,000 pounds of sulfur for WTC-1. Allow another 800,000 pounds for WTC2 and you get about 1.6 million pounds of sulfur for those buildings alone.

Where do you think all the sulfur came from?

Look, you just proved that you understand that melting was part of this process, exactly as FEMA says.

You need to learn how to admit you're wrong instead of intentionally destroying your own credibility to deny deny deny the blatantly obvious, that even the government is telling you.

Are you are claiming that intergranular melting results in pools of bulk metal? It is just part of a mechanism that speeds up the corrosion. Do you understand what corrosion is?
Why would you worry about this anyway? Are you saying that the molten metal seen by the firefighters was the iron-oxide-sulfide eutectic?

I don't think you have actually read my posts. Perhaps you should do before you tell me my credibility is being lost. I have already explained the 'melted steel' issue to you in detail.

I don't know why we have to keep repeating things, it's not like it takes a lot of work to understand this stuff.

Are you aware that I realize you are desperately asking questions that have nothing to do with my posts to deflect from the fact that you are totally ignoring the damage to the steel caused by the intergranular melting?

I think have I read them perfectly. Your credibility was lost pages ago. I am repeatedly showing you why you are wrong.

Apparently because you can't accept what the FEMA report says. Why that is, you'd have to ask a professional.

Look at the quote from the FEMA report I just posted for pteridine above and tell me where FEMA went wrong.

You're just not reading at all are you. You're too busy shouting about how you're right and I'm wrong that you have forgotten I never supported what you think I have.

You should take a few minutes to relax and read back through the discussion, you've created these straw men you're so desperate to knock down that it doesn't matter to you what people have actually said or what's actually true.

Please bsbray, this is not worth this level of anger and self righteousness. Approach this in a dispassionate way and you will find that the truth is quite evident.

I think you're smart enough to realize I'm reading your posts. You're too busy refusing to change your mind to actually use what's sitting on your shoulder. It's impossible to "yell" on the internet.

Ditto. Take a few days or weeks of contemplation, even.

Explain the straw-man. I have links ready to illustrate what a straw-man really is. Good luck.

Describe what you think happened and what you think it proves, other than that a hot corrosive atmosphere will corrode steel. Go into detail on your proposed mechanism so we can see what you think the report says.

I have nothing to add to their own statement.


There was a "high temperature corrosion attack on the steel, including oxidation and sulfidation with subsequent intragranular melting."

You keep arguing with this because you can't link the oxidation and sulfidation with the melting as part of the attack on the steel. You keep wanting to ignore the melting. Gee, how wrong I am for you doing this.

Keep arguing with FEMA. It makes it so easy to debunk you that it's actually fun.

It is really counter-productive to spam threads. If you do not know what that means, look it up.
In fact, it would be nice if a mod read this latest reply of yours, and made a determination of that, because I see absolutely nothing but an incitement (that didn't work) for an angry response.

Where do you get the idea that I deny that any steel melted through these methods? Pretty sure I explained to you explicitly how I am not opposed to this theory.

If you have a problem with my post please feel free to take it up with a mod. I'm just tired of being accused of all sorts when in reality I take issue with incorrect technical issues and don't involve myself in silly 'smoking gun' type proofs.
