But wouldnâ€™t they be restrained to a large degree by the pancaking layers of concrete and steel around them?
Could you explain exactly what you mean by the term "pancaking"?Comment Posted By Frank IBC On 23.08.2007 @ 20:38
I think Hans' image of the structure of the twin towers looks something like this...Comment Posted By Frank IBC On 23.08.2007 @ 20:24
Aha... I think I see the problem here. You're seeing each support column as a single rod that goes from the foundation up to the top, rather than a series of beams that are bolted or welded together, and which will tend to fail first at those bolts or welds under extreme stress.Comment Posted By Frank IBC On 23.08.2007 @ 19:48
Why do you assume that "sliding past each other" is the only way in which the columns could fail? Once again, you set up a single scenario without examining other, much more likely scenarios - such as the columns buckling outward and snapping, either at the top or at some lower point.Comment Posted By Frank IBC On 23.08.2007 @ 19:36
After a few floors of pancaking, thereâ€™d be be a huge knot of twisted metal in the core, stopping things up.
Why do you assume that, Hans?Comment Posted By Frank IBC On 23.08.2007 @ 19:11
Heh... that's weird... for some reason this site, or my Firefox, is formatting text between two hyphens as "strike". It's a conspiracy!! :)Comment Posted By Frank IBC On 23.08.2007 @ 19:09
The 19 9/11 Conspirators:
Which of these 19 is/are "still alive, according to the BBC", Colin?Comment Posted By Frank IBC On 23.08.2007 @ 19:07
an architect and having studied the drawings of the WTC1 and 2 there is NO, and I repeat NO way that they could possibly have collapsed due to them being hit by 757â€™s.
How many buildings have you designed in your career as an "architect", Colin? And what were these "drawings" (an unprofessional term if I ever saw one) and how exactly did you "study them?
You can bring on any accademic you like to support your cause and will produce better ones to slay them.
Oh boy! We're about to be assaulted by Colin's Army of Android Academics!Comment Posted By Frank IBC On 23.08.2007 @ 16:51
Buildings that are imploded conventionally fall up.
