The 2010 jet crash that killed Poland's president, first lady and dozens of dignitaries during a politically sensitive visit to Russia couldn't have happened the way official investigations say, a University of Akron engineering professor's analysis shows.
Wieslaw Binienda's findings (are) based on computer modeling software that NASA used to analyze the space shuttle Columbia's destruction [...]

@ArMaP; We only have speculation as to the motivation for a possible assassination. But the facts are shaping up that the official story is bunk, clipping a tree would not cause the crash results as seen. Binienda's results indicate the plane was much higher and farther forward of any trees when it's wing came off and fuselage tore apart. There's a lot of suspicious deaths related to other investigators of the crash site and even theories of survivors being killed by secret police.
Leszek Misiak and Grzegorz Wierzchołowski talk to Antoni Macierewicz, leader of Parliamentary Team for Investigating Causes of Tu-154M Catastrophe on April 10th, 2010.
Research work of Prof. Wiesław Binienda, member of Expert Group for FAA / NASA Air Accidents, presented to Parliamentary Team for Investigating Causes of Tu-154M Smolensk Catastrophe, proved that the wing of Tu-154 should have cut through the birch tree, not the other way round, as stated by general Anodina and Jerzy Miller. The research results have also proved that such damage to the wing does not decrease its lift area or the plane’s stability. This overturns the fundamental thesis of both MAK and Miller’s reports.
If it was an assassination attempt, who was the target?
Who would profit from the assassination of that person (or persons)?
Why did the Polish commission reached the same conclusion as the Russian?
As for the method, why kill so many people? Why do it that close to the ground? Or did they know that there was going to be bad weather and used that as an excuse? If they knew, who scheduled the flight?
OK, I will keep on topic, sorry.

The point of this thread is Prof. Binienda's report on his findings of the crash - keep in mind this is a highly regarded engineer and expert in fracture mechanics, he investigated the Space Shuttle disaster as well. Not some trivial conspiracy nut.
This thread on Binienda's research only lends credence to the idea the crash was not a result of hitting a tree, that the plane was much higher in the air when it came apart.
To study the wing-tree impact, Binienda created a computer model using a software program called LS-DYNA. He and other engineers routinely use LS-DYNA to simulate complex fracture situations with lots of rapidly changing conditions, like when a loose, high-speed chunk of insulating foam bashed into the space shuttle Columbia's wing during a 2003 launch, fatally damaging the orbiter.
Akron, Ohio, Oct. 6, 2004 Dr. Wieslaw Binienda, chair of the civil engineering department in The University of Akron's of College of Engineering, recently was awarded the Turning Goals Into Reality award from NASA for his work on the Jet Engine Containment Concepts and Blade-Out Simulation Team.
