Re: Analysis showing Nordenson stiffness error

... After all, why would he evade my question, posted to him three times now in bold and colored dark red: Tony, you are aware that there exists no CD hypothesis for the WTC7, right? If you disagree, please link to the falsifiable CD hypothesis for WTC7! Oystein, your red bolded question doesn't ev...

Re: Trapping of girder A2001 behind column 79 side plate

Colin Bailey's FEA of half of the 13th floor of WTC 7 produced the same result with the girder being trapped behind the column 79 western side plate when it was pushed to the west by expanding beams to the east of it, so my results have been duplicated by another analysis. You really need to say wh...

Re: Analysis showing Nordenson stiffness error

For you to think asking me for a testable hypothesis for controlled demolition is somehow germane is beyond me. Can we assume you no longer support a controlled demolition hypothesis considering the fact there is none? First, we need a new investigation because we didn't get answers that actually e...

Re: Analysis showing Nordenson stiffness error

The counter claim will only be "proven" when it is supported by an affirmative and valid argument. A necessary condition for any (counter) claim to be "supported by an affirmative and valid argument" is that it actually be made explicitly. There exists no proper counter claim (s...

Re: Trapping of girder A2001 behind column 79 side plate

Crazy Chainsaw, A325 bolts have a yield strength of 92,000 psi up to 1" in diameter and 81,000 psi for bolts above that size. Their ultimate tensile strength is 120,000 psi up to 1 inch diameter and 105,000 psi for bolts above that size. Shear yield strength is 57.7% of tensile yield strength s...

Re: Trapping of girder A2001 behind column 79 side plate

Your FEA lacks critical details, it does in no academic way meet the burden of proof nessisary to prove NIST wrong, it may lend support to the theory NIST is wrong but it does not indicate proof! What you are saying here is completely unsubstantiated, and is not surprising coming from you. I think ...

Re: Trapping of girder A2001 behind column 79 side plate

Crazy Chainsaw, I think you are grasping at straws, as usual. How much would you expect the column and seat to distort? and what difference would the shearing of the bolts make? You should realize the bolts would have failed by shearing because the girder was pushing on them due to thermal expansio...

Re: Trapping of girder A2001 behind column 79 side plate

I think everything needed is there. What additional items do you think would change the outcome and why? Remember, Colin Bailey's analysis showed the same thing. Was this the only area affected by the fires in WTC7 that would affect theses columns? Looking at your data I see an incomplete picture. ...

Re: Trapping of girder A2001 behind column 79 side plate

NIST ignores the fact that if girder A2001 was heated to the 500 degrees C they say it was that it would be in contact or nearly in contact with the flange of column 79 which was only 1.8 inches away and that after just 3 inches of westward travel it would be trapped behind the west side plate of c...

Analysis showing Nordenson stiffness error

The final expert analysis for the ARUP expert report for the Con Edison vs. WTC 7 Properties court case was done by Guy Nordenson. He used an infinite stiffness for the falling beam and girder assembly at the 13th of WTC 7's northeast corner. An infinite stiffness would cause a very high impact load...

Stress analysis of A2001 with girder stiffeners included

Attached below is a stress analysis of girder A2001 which NIST claims had its web was pushed past the edge of its seat at column 79 and the 65,000 lb. load on that end of the girder caused the flange to fail in flexure (fold up and fail due to bending stress). However, the NIST 7 report omitted the ...

Re: Bulging and Leaning Absent from NIST Simulations?

Crazy Chainsaw, is it true that you chose the pseudonym you did because you do sculpture with a chainsaw? If so, do you do that full time or part time? If only part time what is your actual occupation now and what has it been over your career? It was full time chainsaw sculpture and engineered stun...
