In a comment on my post Twin Towers demolition hypothesis: Discussion with Pat Curley, anonanonanon posted a link to Cardington Fire Test: The Behaviour of a Multi-storey Steel Framed Building Subjected to Fire Attack on a website called Structural Fire Engineering: One Stop Shop by Professor Colin Bailey, University of Manchester.
When I said I’d respond later today, anonanonanon replied, “Please wait until I’ve got my discussion of the fire protection up, because it may answer some of your questions.”
anonanonanon, please post said discussion (or a link to it, if it’s on another website) here, below this post.
Also I would be interested in your specific comments on the following pages on Jim Hoffman’s 9-11 Research site dealing with the question of the likely fire temperatures in the WTC buildings and their likely effects on the steel:
- The Fires: The Twin Towers’ Fires and Their Possible Effects
- Fire Severity: How Serious Were the Twin Towers’ Fires?
- The Fires’ Impact: How the Towers’ Fires Affected the Structural Steel
- comments on Thomas Eagar’s paper (added comments in red) (original here)
- comments on Thomas Eagar’s NOVA interview
- The Jet Fuel: How hot did it heat the World Trade Center? (mirror of Nerdcities/Guardian site)
- The Cardington and Broadgate Fires (mirror of Nerdcities/Guardian site)
- NIST Data Disproves Collapse Theories Based on Fire (PDF) by Frank Legge
See also various critiques of the NIST report, in the section The NIST report in my post Demolition of WTC: Let’s not overstate the case, please.
P.S., 12/7/2007: Jim Hoffman has made various changes to his website, in response to some of the comments below.
