1) For the bow in theory to work, the trusses are required not to fail.
2) Failure of truss components does not automatically mean failure (as in collapse) of the whole truss.

Bottom line is, the fact the trussed did not collapse means that the bowing inward theory is plausible. Had the trusses collapsed before they could exert any inward force, the theory would be very unlikely. All the rest is just a semantics game.

So did you figure out yet how sagging trusses can exert an inward force on the columns? Or is that simple concept still confusing you?

It's not a game to me when people deliberately revise the original intrinsic meaning of words or claim semantic ownership of jargon in order to get away with deceit or misinformation. Not when no planers do it, truthers or debunkers do it. It's a matter of principle.

As for the truss-pull-perimeter-to-failure theory... I agree it's possible, and plausible. However, I think something else was pulling the perimeter through the floor trusses: the core.

Its not often someone proposes an alternative theory. How did the core columns move in your theory?

Spit it out....


It didn't collapse. It was destroyed. Something destroyed 90 stories of supports. Why doesn't everyone want to know the distributions of steel and concrete in those 90 stories so even the conservation of momentum can be properly analyzed. The potential energy cannot even be properly estimated without that info.

So why can't a collapsing model be built if that is what happened? But where has any engineering school even announced trying?
They have only had TEN YEARS!

After the dust had cleared some parts of the outer wall could be seen still standing and had to be cut apart and demolished during the clean up operation. My question is, if these enormous towers fell down in a gravitational collapse why didn't they land on the lower parts of the wall? Surely these walls couldn't possibly survive the enormous weight responsible for the destruction of the buildings? Due to the design I would expect the upper parts to descend vertically and crush the lower parts. What am I missing here?


The usual culprit is other debris.

Basically, the debris that has fallen can act as support to structures that have not yet fallen, making them incredibly strong for a short period.

Take 6 tooth picks and make a single 'wall' (2 horizontal (top and bottom) and 4 vertical (equally spaced).

Try to stand it up. It will be very difficult.

Take a pile of sugar and place the 'wall' into the sugar deep enough that you can provide a flat base on top.

Add weight.

You now have a wall that could not stand by itself easily capable of handling loads far exceeding it's design capabilities.

Now repeat very fast and you have what happens to the lower assembly of many buildings that collapse without design.

You can note that in controlled demolitions, they will specifically try to avoid this by blowing out key points prior to and during the collapse.


Thank you for taking the time to explain. My sugar and toothpick model performs as stated when motionless. However when the 'churning mass' credited with reducing the buildings and contents to the state preserved on the Fresh Kills landfill is replicated by pouring the sugar..... Well let's put it this way, I wouldn't trust my life on the structural integrity of those toothpicks.

In most controlled demolitions much of the debris is found in large chunks which would have the potential to interfere with the collapse of lower segments of the structure. I'm not sure the comparison is accurate. We must remember of course the WTC Disaster was a gravitational collapse and not an explosive event in which some materials were blasted outwards rather than descending in the direction gravity dictates.

I am aware through experience that demolition can be a lot harder than anticipated. Forgive me for sounding illogical but I have personally seen part of a building refusing to fall as if the memory of standing there for so long was keeping it up. The wall of the pentagon stubbornly refused to fall in spite of the damage caused by that large, rapidly moving jet. It stood for some time, the roofline dipping and obviously about to fall, allowing some fairly clear photographs of the hole that large plane passed through. April Gallup escaped with her injured child through that hole. Her account is freely available on the internet.

My own view is an equation incorporating the average size of the WTC remains and the recorded time the destruction took will answer once and for all this question of outside energy. The 40 acres of debris on the Fresh Kills landfill is a central part of that equation. wtcfamiliesforproperburial have knowledge relating to the 'fines'. The fines are the human and building remains under 1/4 inch which were recovered then bulldozed over the rest of the debris.

It's a work in progress, and it's not my work. I don't want to say much about it yet, I might misrepresent it.

Of course, this theory is not non-falsifiable.

Lol, neither would I. Keep in mind that the sugar example is a very simplistic way of teaching this to students (where I tried it). With respect to the WTC, you would have to factor in the specific strengths of the structure, it's shape (the component profile, not the building shape), the spacing between primary structure/support structure, fall patterns, etc. All the while trying to guess what the non building components would be doing. We would be talking a very large number of different debris profiles, potential profiles, compaction rates, crush rates, deflections...oiy, I think I just got a headache thinking about it.

I would dare say that it would be almost impossible to predict with any more accuracy than "there may be some structure remaining after".

Absolutely. We also have to remember that different construction styles will give different demolition results. For the type of construction that the WTC used, I'm actually shocked that there wasn't much larger debris pieces, especially from the zone directly around the impact locations. May just be my lack of faith in certain modular construction types though.

Well put.

I showed the bolded part to one of my engineers and his response was, "the first thing we learn to anticipate is that it will not turn out exactly as anticipated" (his first engineering post was with a demo company).

Lol, I thought it was humorous that two different persons with direct demolition experience (having witnessed live, etc.) would have almost the exact same thoughts on the subject.

What is something?

You can find the distributions. They even showed it on Nat Geo for the Anniversary. I already told you that. Everything had been estimated but you do not believe those that present such information. If that is the case, it is up to you to provide something different but you will not even share the theory on what "SOMETHING" is to cause the collapse.

What destroyed it. This thread cannot move forward until you answer that otherwise you have nothing as well as the OP and it should be closed.

You can claim the Nat Geo has whatever you want. Gregory Urich's data is probably the best I have seen and his distribution for the perimeter panels to the top does not match an engineering magazine from 1970.

You can insist that I claim to know what I don't know all you want but I am not going to do it. If you don't like it though sh!t. That is the whole problem with this TEN YEAR FARCE. People believing crap based on totally inadequate data like the nation that put men on the Moon can't supply accurate info on skyscrapers. Like steel strong enough to support 29 stories can weaken in less than an hour and then no one explains how the bottom of those 29 stories moved horizontally 20 feet in a couple of seconds when the building only moved 15 inches when the plane impacted.

I know it's not possible, I am waiting for your explanation.

It's you who fails to understand the concept of steel expanding when it heats up. If the trusses sagged it's because they could not push out the columns, so how can they put a pulling force on them when they sagged? They can't. Any 'pulling force' would just cause the truss to sag more. Think about it, lightweight truss heated to the point it is malleable, pulling on columns, that are attached to other columns, much more massive then itself that are not heated up to the same extent? Do you have any common sense?

Unless you can physically show this possibility, shouldn't be too hard eh? And I don't mean computer simulations.

And again even IF the truss did pull in columns it doesn't mean that would cause complete failure of the building. You have a lot more to explain than something NIST made up. Their hypothesis has never been successfully tested, yet you all claim it to be fact. From extremely flimsy evidence, and government claims.

That's the big question isn't it, what was that outside energy?

No one knows esdad, we can only speculate. But not knowing what it was, doesn't mean we don't what it wasn't.
It's a process of elimination, can fire heat up thousand of tons of steel enough in an hour to cause steel failure? No. Can sagging trusses put a pulling force on columns? No. So we have to assume another energy was acting on the towers to cause the events we see. That is what a new investigation would hopefully discover.


That is the point of the OP. I say no, so there is nothing to prove. They came down. End of story.


Wow what incredible logic you use. You can't explain how it just came down, so the OS must be true?

Long ago, didn't I post several publications about this subject where they did real life experiments that showed an inward pull force? And weren't these publication easily found by using simple terms like "sagging" "trusses" "fire" in Google? Aaah yes, that was the case. But then you chose to ignore that, since you ignore anything that conflicts with your shallow world view. And here we are, you still being completely confused about the simplest concepts, thinking potential energy pushes up, or attached top section don't have potential energy.

Exactly! No one has to PROVE that normal airliners and resulting fires could result in the complete destruction of the towers in LESS THAN TWO HOURS based on ACCURATE DATA ABOUT THE BUILDINGS. Everyone is just supposed to BELIEVE on the basis of having seen airliners hit the towers and their resulting COMPLETE destruction.

I can only conclude that lots of people are too emotionally upset about the POSSIBILITY that airliners could not do it because it opens a HUGE CAN OF WORMS that would smell really bad. So accepting the OS and hating Arab terrorists just makes life a lot simpler.

Even for people with PhDs in physics who should at least have their curiosities aroused by such a phenomenal event. So what if it is Isaac Neton's birthday. He ain't nobody!

Here is two pictures.


I can only conclude that people are neglecting the amount of damage an airliner can cause to a vertical structure.

Just look at the damage for a while

Oh WOW! He can show us a picture of one side of the building. It had FOUR. He can't show how much damage there was to the core. So since the core supported 50% of the weight one side of the exterior is only 12.5 of the total support. And since the buildings are constructed to hold more than double their weight that damage could not start a collapse.

So this is also a perception issue, possibly from seeing too many explosions in movies.

And it still does not explain how the top of the north tower could destroy everything below in less than 25 seconds. So this is an issue for the physicists. Why haven't they asked about the distribution of steel regardless of what caused the destruction?

Happy Newton's Birthday physicists.

I suppose after TEN YEARS there is another aspect to the problem.

Some people would have to admit they have been stupid for a long time.

So build a physical model that can completely collapse. The Laws of Physics do not care about anybodies ego.

Maybe you should take your own advise, and look for awhile at all the building that is not damaged.

Also take note of where the damage is, compared to where the damage isn't.
