EXAMPLES OF CONTROLLED DEMOLITION

No steel framed high rise building in the history of modern construction has ever totally collapsed from fire or structural damage….. EVER. This is why Controlled Demolition companies exist. Not sure why they still use explosives, when lighting a fire inside the building gives us the same outcome and much cheaper.

Controlled Demolition in China Vs 9/11

cdchina1

The China Demo was still a bottom to top demo like we are used to seeing but two floors were loaded with explosives for show. If the China building had every second floor loaded with explosives, it would have been very comparable to the Towers. As we clearly see debris ejecting horizontally from the building.

SOUTHFIELD NORTHPARK PLAZA

“While implosions can include building falling in right on top of themselves, an easier way to do this is to guide the building to fall one way or another. Small wedges are cut out of the support beams, like chopping down a tree.

And of course, there are the explosives.

While concrete buildings can use traditional dynamite, steel supports like these require stronger explosive material to slice through the steel.”

“Building demolition can be fun and exciting to watch. It is always fascinating how engineers figure out a way to make a building collapse straight down, without doing much damage to the surrounding. Interestingly enough, building demolitions do not always go as planned and depending on what goes wrong, there might be very different results than expected. Here are the top 10 building demolition fails.”

VERINAGE TECHINQUE

“The technique of Vérinage is used in France to weaken and buckle the supports of central floors promoting the collapse of the top part of a building onto the bottom resulting in a rapid, symmetrical, collapse.”

This is another example of a large building demolished without explosives, using the hydraulic ‘verinage’ technique.
Note the collapse floors are weakened, but not the rest of the structure.

Note: This building is approx 15-16 stories tall and it takes approx. 5 seconds to collapse. The towers were 110 stories and fell in 10 and 12 seconds respectively. WTC 7 was 47 stories and it fell in 6.5 seconds. Proving this building (Balzac) did not fall at the acceleration of gravity aka Free fall.

Lack of Deceleration of North Tower’s Upper Section Proves Use of Explosives
http://www.whale.to/b/lack_of.html

“Proof that the necessary deceleration is observable in a collapse in which the momentum and kinetic energy of an upper section break the columns in the lower section is found in the demolition of several buildings in France. In recent years demolition engineers there have devised a system known as the Verinage technique, where they demolish buildings without the use of explosives. This technique uses hydraulic rams to break all of the columns in a couple of stories near the center of the building. The loss of vertical support in these stories then causes the upper section to fall unimpeded through a pre-determined distance before impacting the intact lower structure. Watch this video of one of these demolitions – of the Balzac-Vitry building.

In every instance of these “Verinage”-demolished buildings, measurement of the descent of the roofline shows definitive proof of deceleration of their upper sections as they impact the lower structure, as seen in the velocity graph of the Balzac-Vitry building demolition below.”

None of these collapses come close to collapsing at free fall acceleration. Why? Because of resistance of the bottom floors (even though in some cases the bottom floors have been weakened prior).

Top-Down building collapse 2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prwvj-npt5s

This was done by BCT Demolition
http://www.bct-demolition.com/

Do the math, it took 6 seconds for this 15 storey building to partially collapse.

Wtc 7 which is 47 stories completely fell in 6.5 seconds at near free fall speed.

Conclusion: This building did not fall at free fall speed. Not to mention only one floor was removed of it’s structural supports and only one section came down and not the entire building. WTC 7 came down symetrically into its own footprint.

VERINAGE TECHNIQUE CHARACTERISTCIS

Verinage style demolitions often use hydraulics to push out lower structural supports in order for the upper floors to crush the lower often weakened floors prior. It does not collapse at anywhere near free fall due to the resistance of the lower floors. Let’s look at some more characteristics of a demolition using the Verinage Technique.

The Verinage Technique Characteristics:

1) Lower floors are often pre weakened beforehand.
2) Hydraulic presses are used to remove all vertical structural supports at the same time.
3) Collapse does not happen anywhere close to free fall.
4) No Pyroclastic cloud.
5) Building components aren’t flown through the air laterally.
6) The building falls into its own footprint leaving huge chunks of debris and concrete. Not dust.
7) This technique does not work on Steel framed buildings. It only works on buildings with load bearing walls, not steel columns.

Debunkers forget to mention any of these characteristics when explaining the Verinage technique.

The Verinage technique only helps validate that what happened on 9/11 was physically impossible without the aid of explosives.

NATURAL COLLAPSES

“1) As in the L’Ambiance Plaza case, ASCE created a committee to observe and study lift slab technology and constitute proper lifting techniques for lift slab construction. (Peraza, “L’Ambiance”, 1995, 1) Safety should be the main goal on any job site, and if any situation or connection seems unsafe, proper notification should be taken to ensure that an accident doesn’t occur. Many of these progressive collapses are due to overloading of members due to excessive construction loads or other mistakes during construction.”

“we found a pattern of sloppy construction practices, which may have influenced the progressive nature and speed of the collapse of the Twin Towers.” @5:00
