See the difference?

PS.

Hey Clayton,

1. How old are you?

2. What do you do for a living?

3. Where did you get your PhD / MS in structural engineering?

4. How many FEAs for the collapse of giant structures have you performed?

(truth please.)

Also, the jist of the post ... that you skipped / missed / chose to ignore.

5. Do you think that some of the details of the construction of the building MIGHT just play a role in the nature of the collapse?

6. Or do you think that the collapse of this small, symmetrical erector set is valid for all large structures?

7. Do you think that the manufacturer of the FEA software sits up at night worrying that someone may catch on to the fact that his product is no longer needed because the analysis of one simplistic model applies to all other structures?

8. What experience in your background qualifies you to gainsay the results of several dozen PhDs in structural engineering who spent several years modeling, you know, the ACTUAL BUILDING, instead of a completely unrelated structure?

Please answer these questions.

If you do, I'll reply to your assertions about the necessity for "rotation before collapse".
1) 42

2) I own a construction company here in the UK.

3) I am not a qualified structural engineer. I have a BA (Hons) Arch and Dip Arch which are standard UK university qualifications in architecture - the latter being the higher qualification. I also have a diploma in Urban Design - just so that you know.

4) None

5) Absolutely

6) The principles are the same. Gravity doesn't distinguish between small structures or large ones.

7) Nope

8) Their work was based on probability - and in my opinion, leaps in imagination. It is not based on the ACTUAL BUIlDING because they didn't have the ACTUAL BUILDING to examine. They used models which don't even perform as WTC7 did when compared with the recorded visual data.


I see you are a mechanical engineer - that makes you as qualified as me.

But at least he understands models, you don't as you make up the CD delusions for WTC 7. What will you do with Flight 93 and 77? 19 terrorists did 911. WTC 7 caught fire on 911 due to the collapse and aircraft impacts that day. No body fought the fire, why would you have to make up CD when fire is all that is needed?

Why did you wait nearly 10 years before you expose your failure to comprehend fire can destroy a building?

I'm not disputing the fact that fire can destroy a building - any building.

But I am disputing that fire brought down WTC7.

I also dispute that 19 terrorists had anything to do with 9/11 or that Flight 77 hit the Pentagon or that Flight 93 landed where it was meant to have done......

Why do you lie?? You are just speculating, why debunkers think speculating is the same as telling facts?

Anyone care to repost those so we can show Bill that this tilt is indeed an observable fact? Mrkinnies has mostly agreed with these observations but Bill is holding back. And mrkinnies, as to your "so what" question about this exercise in observation, we'll get there. First I want to get Bill on board. Bill, I know that lenses and smoke and heat can slightly distort the angle of buildings etc but with the Building 7 photos, I am talking about something that I believe is clearly observable by the naked eye. I didn't notice clearly tilting buildings in your YouTube explosions video but I could be wrong.

The "direct observation" method could also apply to the sounds of explosions in real CDs vs the contested WTC collapses, but I would despair of ever arriving at agreement there!
Hi Chris, there was flexing in the building just at the point the west penthouse collapsed and the building came down as a single unit. The kink is seen as a result of this movement.

I'm interested to see your photo but you may wish to bear this in mind.

There are various ones that we know would have picked them up.

This is one of the arguments of the debunkers they often use.

It shows their lack of knowledge about demolitions.

Verinage is a demolition technique and that means human beings are involved in causing the building to collapse.

Those human beings make damn sure that the building will fall as intended by removing key lateral restraints throughout the structure and applying simultaneous destruction to all the supporting members at the point collapse is to start.

It's calculated and executed with great skill and attention.

Natural building collapses don't follow the same procedure. They are messy and usually incomplete.

Dispute away,you can't change the facts. When another ten years have passed will you still be disputing?

Pass. I've seen all that junk before. Do you have any new evidence instead of the same rehashed truther nonsense?

How do you know they are facts. What proof do you have other than you were told it happened in a certain way?

I will dispute the official story until I see better evidence to confirm it. If I die still thinking the way I do then so be it.

I don't believe there is any evidence of god either. Some people will hate me for that but until I see absolute proof I will take such a belief to my grave also.

All you have is words, nothing more.

I was a real architect and still work in the construction industry.

Richard Gage was an architect too with years of experience.

You can pick and choose all you like but I really don't care what you believe. It's worthless to me especially as you've added nothing to the debate in all the time I've been here.

But feel free to discuss the issues like Chris Mohr is actually doing and I'll be happy to engage with you.

Gage is a raving lunatic. I will leave it to Chris,he does a sterling job in educating truthers about the facts of 911. Cheerio.

I know what happened. Terrorists hijacked airplanes and flew them into the buildings,damaging them so badly that they collapsed. Why can't that be true?

LOL , no it makes him vastly more qualified as to become a Mech Eng you study both Statics and Dynamics, the Basics of Structural Engineering.

Architecture is essentially an arts degree and does not cover these subjects in anything like the same depth. My brother in law is an architect in the UK but he, unlike you, knows his limitations, and has Engineers do the Engineering.

I'm not sure how things work in Holland, but most countries have these things called 'conferences,' where those who work in certain fields attend lectures and presentations about work people are doing in the field. Conferences are generally attended by hundreds of people, all of whom have the ability to openly discuss the work being presented with the people presenting them.

So far, the only people who have taken issue with what has been presented and published are wing nuts. Those who do not take issue with it....wait for it

wait for it...

waiiiiit for it...

...

...

agree with it.

Hardly an intangible concept.

So you can not show the 1000 structural engineers?

How shocking is this...

It's hard to believe that someone with research skills this poor is going to uncover a vast government conspiracy.

I use structural engineers too. They know far more than I about detailing, Eurocodes and health & safety requirements since they deal with this stuff everyday. Most of the time all I get from them is detailing for code compliance since the principles of the structure have already been given to them by me.

The principles of structures are very simple, the hard part is proving mathematically that a structural design can withstand the necessary tolerances for safety and to meet building codes. I can't do the latter nor have any interest in doing so.
