Bazant’s Work Rests on Complete Baloney

This is in the intro to his 2001 paper– and forms the basis for his subsequent analysis of the WTC destruction:

Yes, that is VERY unlikely that “all the impact forces go into the columns” below with equal distribution among the columns!

So why even discuss it?

He SAYS because if it would fail symmetrically, it would definitely fail if there was an asymmetric collapse.

True, the building would “fail” with an asymmetric collapse– but IT WOULD FAIL IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MANNER THAN IF A TOP SECTION OF BUILDING FALLS ONE STORY SYMMETRICALLY AT NEAR FREE FALL SPEED*!!!

If the building fails asymmetrically, it simply is NOT going to undergo complete symmetric collapse, as was seen.**

This, as shown in his paper, would NEVER happen:

PERIOD.

Bazant’s whole model for WTC collapse is a fraud.

* This is Bazant’s assumption, see here:

** What would be seen is the upper section falling apart and falling off to the side after crashing down one side of the tower. A major section of the tower– much of the opposite side from the collapse should be left standing.
