Sorry but your attempt to apply a scientific approach to explain your assumed result will not yield the results you wish for. Like I said, it is wonderful to think we have a god protecting us, but we have one, only because we want it to be so. It fits our needs and desires to believe that there is only one explanation of events- the official one. This is your wish for the WTC.
Your pretend experiment is flawed and limited by size and materials and actual occurences that affected the towers integrity. The results you wish for are wonderfully planned to get the results you hope for. This is what the 911 (C)Omission report was meant to do.
Gravity is not a brick falling from above. Gravity is a constant force which applies itself when the conditions are met for it to work. Yours is not a scientific experiment. REAL Science assumes a result and then goes about testing it using as many factors that would contradict it as possible. There have been tests done with simulations on computers of the towers, but the results are shaky at best. Perhaps the 911 Omission Report should be your next read and then search for all the things you and they have ignored and omitted before you assume something scientific.

-Steel Structure Nonlinear FEA Simulation Provides Insight into World Trade Center Collapse. FEMA
Simulations- Modeling Aspects of the Twin Towers' Collapse- NIST- These simulations are all about minutiae of fires and smoke plumes, with nothing about the physics of the collapses. With tens of millions of dollars at its disposal, NIST couldn't spend a few thousand dollars to study progressive collapse, the newfound phenomenon that accounted for the total destruction of all three skyscrapers, WTC 1, 2, and 7. (Remember WTC7 was never hit by a plane
Since one should see both sides, the NIST report- http://wtc.nist.gov/
When you read this they project a sense of knowing and decision making that makes one question their motives and intent.
Some 200 technical experts—including about 85 career NIST experts and 125 leading experts from the private sector and academia—reviewed tens of thousands of documents, interviewed more than 1,000 people, reviewed 7,000 segments of video footage and 7,000 photographs, analyzed 236 pieces of steel from the wreckage, performed laboratory tests and sophisticated computer simulations of the sequence of events that occurred from the moment the aircraft struck the towers until they began to collapse.
Wooooooo they got their own experts, hand picked to review the scene and photos. Wow real science in action!
Based on this comprehensive investigation, NIST concluded that the WTC towers collapsed because: (1) the impact of the planes severed and damaged support columns, dislodged fireproofing insulation coating the steel floor trusses and steel columns, and widely dispersed jet fuel over multiple floors; and (2) the subsequent unusually large jet-fuel ignited multi-floor fires (which reached temperatures as high as 1,000 degrees Celsius) significantly weakened the floors and columns with dislodged fireproofing to the point where floors sagged and pulled inward on the perimeter columns. This led to the inward bowing of the perimeter columns and failure of the south face of WTC 1 and the east face of WTC 2, initiating the collapse of each of the towers. Both photographic and video evidence—as well as accounts from the New York Police Department aviation unit during a half-hour period prior to collapse—support this sequence for each tower.
Remember to check out all facts related including temperatures of fires which vary, causes of fires and fuel dispersal, times of impact and duration of fall ect.
NIST’s findings do not support the “pancake theory” of collapse, which is premised on a progressive failure of the floor systems in the WTC towers (the composite floor system—that connected the core columns and the perimeter columns—consisted of a grid of steel “trusses” integrated with a concrete slab; see diagram below). Instead, the NIST investigation showed conclusively that the failure of the inwardly bowed perimeter columns initiated collapse and that the occurrence of this inward bowing required the sagging floors to remain connected to the columns and pull the columns inwards. Thus, the floors did not fail progressively to cause a pancaking phenomenon.
Gee, what happened to the pancake theory everyone loves to swallow with syrup and buttered up. Probably wouldn't hold up to scrutiny in the final analysis so they put the "Fix" on, to make something else more plausible, like their theory of a block coming down on it and ignoring those that said that there were explosions in the basement before the planes hit. Make the witnesses less credible and ignore them.
NIST’s findings also do not support the “controlled demolition” theory since there is conclusive evidence that:
the collapse was initiated in the impact and fire floors of the WTC towers and nowhere else, and;
the time it took for the collapse to initiate (56 minutes for WTC 2 and 102 minutes for WTC 1) was dictated by (1) the extent of damage caused by the aircraft impact, and (2) the time it took for the fires to reach critical locations and weaken the structure to the point that the towers could not resist the tremendous energy released by the downward movement of the massive top section of the building at and above the fire and impact floors.
Video evidence also showed unambiguously that the collapse progressed from the top to the bottom, and there was no evidence (collected by NIST, or by the New York Police Department, the Port Authority Police Department or the Fire Department of New York) of any blast or explosions in the region below the impact and fire floors as the top building sections (including and above the 98th floor in WTC 1 and the 82nd floor in WTC 2) began their downward movement upon collapse initiation.
This is the best these "Experts" could come up with to explain away the events? If they were so sure of their results, then why didn't they let other independant analysts survey and test the wreckage? Why was it locked up, stacked up and shipped off to China so they could send us back some of their cheap crap appearing in a Wal-Mart near you? This is tampering with evidence and in the REAL world you can get off a murder conviction if you can prove tampering by so called "Experts" But since these experts were handpicked to arrive at a predetermined conclusion, this has nothing to do with science or facts. It is a cabal that has made decisions that can Never
be verified since the evidence is gone. But there have been some pieces of steel that were secretly taken from the WTC site that reveal a different story. Steve Jones has more to say on that.
The Tower1 film shows the antenna falling first and then the walls came down. Is this not the center falling first? There was no chunk that fell first, your BRICK falling scenario. Tower7 is said to be set on fire by other buildings falling and a large diesel supply in the basement igniting, but burned for nearly 8 hours before it collapsed. All this talk about fire retardant materials being removed by planes and debris as a key to their collapse and temperatures high enough to melt steel? Nothing but fitting contrived speculation to a situation so it appears to make sense. There's the god game at work again.
Here's a video on youtube that simulates the fall. It has some nice calming music to help you forget the horror of that day as it tries to sweep you up into its choreographed assymetry. He claims to use NISTand FEMA reports but still tries to validate the Pancake theory. Funny, NIST let that dead horse go, but people still persist in holding onto it. Like the block above caused thefall, the so called brick from the sky theory. People are so caught up in their wish to have things just so, their devotion to country and integrity of its leaders makes them blind devotees to anothe ruse. His name is- mmmlink -and you must subscribe to watch it. http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center
? Of course he doesn't show WTC7 at all as it was nevewr hit by a plane but fell down anyway. Funny what a little fire can do. Was it intentiomnally 'Pulled" so it would explain 1&2 falling because they burned? You didn't need the planes, only the fires caused by the planes. Smoke and mirrors.
Here's History Channels piece of Propaganda for the sheeple on WTC7- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVSxeJH_RCY&NR
read what Midex puts in his comments for an outline of how propaganda can be disseminated.
This from the FEMA report and MSC software- Simulating Reality
As part of a research study, funded by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), researchers from academia, government and private industry investigated the cause of the collapse of WTC building. Dr. Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, under the Directorate of Engineering of the National Science Foundation (NSF), investigated the collapse of the World Trade Center. He was one of five expert witnesses invited to testify before the Committee on Science of the U.S. House of Representatives at the March 6, 2002 hearing. Learning from 9/11 - Understanding the Collapse of the World Trade Center. Dr. Astaneh-Asl's presentation included a movie of a simulated crash of a passenger aircraft onto a generic steel structure created with MSC.Dytran and MSC.Marc by the MSC.Software nonlinear group.....A full mockup of the building was unnecessary, because of time limitations and the fact that the actual structural data had not yet been made available (Apparently, Astaneh-Asl still does not have the plans of the WTC. Wouldn't it would be reasonable to give your researchers the basic data needed for their investigations.) Therefore, a generic six-story steel structure was constructed with tubular beams and columns. The gravity loading was applied to the entire structure and the dead weight of the building was added through the floorings located on the top-two and bottom-two floors of the structure. Floors were not added to the impact area, which facilitated the study of the failure pattern of both the aircraft and the beam-column connections.( The steel-concrete composite floors are responsible for much of the structures resistance/strength against the lateral motion induced by the impact of a plane, so this is surprising.) The foundation of the building was rigidly fixed. Approximately 61,000 elements were used to construct the entire model of the building and Boeing 747.
A mockup will not yield the results unless it is built to give the results desired. This is unreal science. Imagine asking for a study and then setting the parameters for the study. Do they comply with your expected results? Make sure the information you give fits your description and not the actual layout. This is how they rig the wheel. It is not REAL SCIENCE. They hire an engineer and don't give him the plans and conditions so he can set up the experiment? Typical wait and see attitude.
What-if studies need to be conducted on many other thermal parameters, including the insulation and thickness of the walls, and insulation of steel beams and columns. Analysis of structural parameters, including spacing of beams and columns and radiation on beams and columns should be factored into the simulation. In addition, an analysis should be undertaken of the difference between material used in the staircases and drywall, which has a much higher tolerance for temperature, as well as an analysis of what caused the fire sprinkler system to fail within a few minutes of the impact.
So many unanswered questions to a supposed scientific analysis? This is chaos theory being presented to you as order? Chaos theory deals with events that can't be seen or factored in until every detail has been carefully thought out. To bypass theory they presented their "Facts " as proof of order.
"A plane hit the side of the building, high up, at a fast speed with a cargo of jet fuel (Note- Not a brick from above), it burned and caused some office fires; 1 hour later the steel melted and the building fell straight down. Now, how can we make this fantasy seem real? I know! A simulation, set with our parameters,and verified by our Pop Mech rag. That should do it. That's scientific enough for the rubes. What they don't know we can tell them OVER and OVER again, until it becomes the truth

So get to work and read. You want to know what real science is? Well get busy and investigate! Perhaps you should also do some studying on gravity, the laws of thermodynamics and heat distribution through radiation and absorption in metals, as well as the latest understanding of how gravity works and the theory of the graviton. Report back to me when you get some scientific results verifiable with facts. Remember that there is order to chaos theory. It just can't be envisioioned unless you have all the facts from the micro to the macro to explain its progress. There are far too many questions left unanswered or explained away that don't add up. Perhaps in the future we will have the technology to answer all lifes mysteries but until then we are left to question realities presented. After all, Propaganda can't be discerned by the receptor unless he can see another side to the madness- he knows its purpose and meaning. Propaganda is proposed by those who gain from its dissemmination. Again follow the money. Who has the most to gain from the official story? What do you have to lose if you go against the explanation and the general consensus? Outside of notoriety, people like Steve Jones and people who step forward risk their lives, carreers, credibility etc. just by opening their minds to general scrutiny for the sake of science and discovery.
You've got your work cut out for you now. Get on it flatfoot. Report back when you have some conclusions.
