The Texas State Fair is happening, and Civilization 5 keeps calling. Meanwhile, NIST updated their FAQ about the WTC 7 investigation. Here’s one of the additions: In June 2009, NIST began releasing documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the International Center for 9/11 Studies for “all of the photographs […]
Adapted from Building What?’s 7 facts… 1) If nano-thermite caused Building 7 to collapse, it would be the first ever and only nano-thermite-induced demolition of a steel-frame high-rise. 2) Building 7’s collapse was extensively examined in the NIST NCSTAR 1A final report. 3) Most people don’t know about WTC 7 because coverage went largely to […]
Or wind noise? Amazingly enough, this is brought up in a story where Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars claims that NIST edited videos to leave out the east penthouse collapse! Except for this one with the “explosion” on it. Kind of weird for NIST to edit the east penthouse collapse from other videos, but then […]
The NIST Report used thermal conductivity in its modeling of the response of the structural steel to fire. I’ve produced the actual citations. The thermal conductivity settings were set to begin with 47 and progressed down as the conductivity slowed due to the steel heating. I’ve also demonstrated how Kevin Ryan deceptively quoted from the […]
Little known or cared-about fact: I’ll be in the Atlanta area over the weekend of September 11th for personal matters, and so when I saw an AE911Truth event happening in the Atlanta area that weekend, I was surprised and intrigued. Alas, it is not one Richard Gage is presenting. Instead it’s some Derek Johnson guy. Bummer. Still, […]
I was a little rushed today, so I didn’t get to search the entire NIST NCSTAR 1-5G report for thermal conductivity. Now that I’m home again, I sat down, searched the rest of the document and found a chart on page 274 (pdf 318) showing the thermal conductivity of the materials used in NIST’s model […]
The belief that the steel structures of the WTC buildings could “wick the heat away” from fires within them is a real thing in the world. Structural steel is thought to be such an uncanny conductor of heat energy that any fires isolated in one part of a large building would never overwhelm the building. […]
Continuing on, the arguments about a piece of WTC 7 steel examined by FEMA but not used by NIST are examined. The arguments that this is evidence of thermite arson are found to be wanting.
I was sad. NIST reorganized its website and the WTC 7 collapse video disappeared, along with the full video showing the building failures before the point most 9/11 Truth advocates start the video. Then I found it at NIST’s Youtube account, and I was happy!
Dwain Deets, the “writing team lead” for AE911Truth, has a new website up, 7 Problems with Building 7, which lists seven items he considers problems. They’re not.
