'Just Six Months to Go on the WTC 7 Study.
Dr. Leroy Hulsey Shares His Preliminary Findings with the Fairbanks Branch of the ASCE.
Dr. Leroy Hulsey, chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), is now 18 months into his two-year computer modeling study on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7).
Dr. Hulsey first announced his preliminary findings at the Justice In Focus conference in New York City on September 10 and 11 — where he stated categorically that there was “zero” probability that WTC 7 collapsed due to the fires it experienced on 9/11.
A few days ago I posted a graphic from NIST's latest WTC7 report that depicts the exterior buckling after global collapse initiation. In no way does it resemble how the structure actually looks when it imploded. I had not noticed that this was the model for the scenario without debris impact damage. You see, NIST actually has models for the scenario without debris impact damage and for the scenario with their best estimated impact damage (the damage to the south side). They conclude that the building would also have collapsed without any impact damage.
So I checked the report for their modeling of the exterior buckling with the best estimated impact damage; the model of what actually happened. It's there but there is something missing: the top 23 floors are not shown and the north side is not shown; the side that can actually be seen in the videos and photographs of the collapse.
