Well, not only am I back up and running, in large part thanks to you guys, but the addition of a new video card now allows me to open and use 3d modeling aspects of my drafting programs and start learning video editing software. I can now go back and clean up files and make some quick tweaks to the artwork, so that in a few days I will probably have my first video up and running, a video explaining how I think the demolition of the Twin Towers was accomplished. I cleaned up this image a little to make it more easily understood.
Basically, I believe that the floor systems of the Twin Towers were taken out with det cord, a high explosive delivery device commonly used in the controlled demolition process. As you can see from the quote I included in my drawing below, they commonly use det cord to break up thin concrete floor sections. You will also notice that I included the approximate heat value of PETN, the most commonly used high explosive in det cord, at detonation. It gets up to about 8,000 deg f when it goes off. The use of det cord would answer three of the most troubling questions about what happened to the Towers on 9/11: 1. why was everything completely pulverized?, 2. why was so much of the material melted and almost vaporized?, and 3. how were they able to install explosives in working buildings without being noticed as doing such? It would actually answer a fourth question as well and that is “why haven’t NIST and any other official investigation tested for residual trace elements of high explosives in the Ground Zero dust?”
The picture above shows how I think they installed the PETN based det cord in the floor systems. The design of the system is based on two things: 1. photos of the Twin Towers being built and 2. NIST’s own diagrams detailing the construction of the Twin Towers.
(It is also very important to note that in spite of what Steven Jones has been reporting, much of the metal in the construction of the Twin Towers was in fact NOT “structural steel” or A-36. This is important because A-36 structural steel is only comprised of iron and carbon and all those iron-rich micro-spheres that were found by the USGS and RJ Lee report contained other materials as well. Fact is, the vast majority of the trusses were made up of something called HSLA (High Strength Low Alloy) steel which includes iron and carbon but also many other elements added at the time it is formed. It makes the steel stronger and the manufacturer of the trusses went with HSLA steel at the time of construction.)
The following is from the NCSTAR (NIST) report detailing the standard construction design of the floor sections. These were manufactured off site (WTC NY) and shipped to the location and then set in place by “T”-crane. (click on image for larger view)
As you can see, the trusses were doubled up (increasing my initial estimate by a factor of 2) and there is indeed an electrical duct included in the design. (image: NCSTAR page 6)
But we don’t have to take NIST’s word for it, as that we can look at the photos from the fabrication of the towers and we can clearly see the electric ducts in those photos. (click on photo for larger view)
Look carefully. You have two yellow bands a narrow one on the left and a wider one on the right. What you are looking at is the floor system with the corrugated metal floor exposed prior to the pouring of the 4″ concrete floor, just like in the diagram from NCSTAR. Just to the right of the narrow yellow band you will notice a wider flat that runs perpendicular to the band. The same kind of wider flat runs next to the wide yellow band as well. These are the tops of the electrical ducts.
So as you can see, the electrical ducts were there. They were included in the NCSTAR diagram and they were also clearly evident in the construction photos. Why is this important? Because as you can see from my cut section diagram at the top of the page, utilizing these pre-existing ducts would allow the demolition company to basically install the det cord as it is suggested they do it, by putting it into a “channel” that allows for the maximum efficiency of the shock wave created by the det cord to pulverize the concrete floor slabs. The heat created by the blast would be shielded from above by the concrete thus directing the vast majority of that heat energy toward the trusses and the A/C ducts and all the other things in the floor system below the metal floor pans and above the ceiling tiles.
To get a better understanding of that space, I drew this typical cross section of the WTC Towers as they were constructed…
It is my contention that the vast heat energy released by the thousands of feet of det cord used to demo those floors may have created a bit of evidence that the planners did not anticipate. As reported by RJ Lee and others, the amount of heat energy needed to create the iron-rich spheres that he found in his study cannot be explained by anything in the official story of 9/11. Those hundreds of tons of micro-spheres are a clue. They prove that something else happened on Sept. 11th 2001, something that cannot be explained away by office fires on a few floors and jet fuel that burned up in 15 minutes or less.
This is the “smoking gun” of 9/11. It is the trusses and the corrugated floor pans. It is the light fixtures and the ceiling tile grid. It is the A/C/ ducts and the electrical wiring suspended above the offices and meeting rooms of the Twin T0wers. It has been there in plain sight since the very beginning. Just like the Ground Zero dust that has to be polluted with the signature fingerprints of the terrorists who brought down the buildings on Sept. 11.. the high explosive residues that have to be there and that no one will test for.
This explains the molten metal… this explains why these spheres were mixed with pulverized concrete. This was never “thermite” or “thermate” or “super thermite” or “nanothermite”. It is and always was parts of those buildings that could not have possibly been melted in such a way if the official story of 9/11 is correct.
