The columns in the core were interconnected with BEAMS not Trusses and the columns did have to get stronger down the building because that is what progressively more floors were connected to. I know each of the floor assemblies was 750 tons. Do you have that information on the tip of your tongue?
Go back and read what I said - Yes columns got stronger on way down.
The center core was not near as solid or braced as your words imply.
Look at the floor plan,
Can’t find a plan for your “BEAMS” - got a link?
Because you can’t find the data they must be MY BEAMS!
Well I can’t find the data either. That is what I have been saying for years. The data necessary to solve the problem has disappeared. Lon Waters PhD had a site with data on the core columns for years. That is HAD A SITE. But he didn’t have data on the horizontal beams. He didn’t have data on the 2800 perimeter wall panels from the 9th floor to the top.
9/11 is an IQ test. The dummies can’t figure out what data they need to solve the problem from the start but they can believe they know the solution. Look at the Purdue simulation that they claim is scientific:
The Core is shown at 2 min. 40 sec.
They have horizontal beams at every level in the core. But I have NEVER SEEN a diagram with a horizontal layout of the horizontal beams. But the core has more than twice as many columns per area as a normal skyscraper with columns 30 feet apart. You can compute how much the horizontal length of steel should have been at least.
This whole 9/11 argument has been about minimizing the significance of the core but it was the core that gave the building its rigidity because it was the only three dimensional array of steel. It is the fault of all of the dummies for not figuring that out and just TRUSTING AUTHORITY.
These reports mention the beams in the core:
NIST NCSTAR 1-3A
NIST NCSTAR 1-6
NIST NCSTAR 1-6D
But they don’t say a lot.
Montague-Betts fabricated all the rolled columns and beams in the core of both towers, 25,900 tons
(Feld 1971). Their contract was for “all rolled columns and beams, including cover-plated sections
throughout both towers…including horizontal trusses on 2nd floor.. and exterior wall steel above
107th floor and the weldments for supporting future T.V. masts.” (Feld 1971).
So a little more then 12% of all of the steel in the building was in the cores.
