Characteristics of Controlled Demolition
No building collapse which fits all these criteria has ever
collapsed due to anything other than Controlled Demolition.
Onset: In controlled
onset of the collapse is sudden. One moment, the building is perfectly
motionless; the next moment, it suddenly begins to collapse.
Down: The building
comes straight down, into, or at least close to, its own footprint, so
does not harm the other buildings.
Free-Fall Speed: Collapse at
almost free-fall speed. This can occur
because the supports for the lower floors are destroyed, so that when
floors come down, they encounter no resistance.
Collapse:The building completely falls to ground
In controlled demolitions of
steel-frame buildings, explosives are used to slice the steel columns
of Concrete and
Other Materials: Explosives
will pulverize concrete and
most other non-metallic substances into tiny particles.
Clouds: Dust clouds
explosions eject the dust from the building with great energy.
ejection of other materials, besides
A series of
small explosions run rapidly around a building.
Produced by Explosions: The use of
explosives to induce
collapses produces, of course, sounds caused by the explosions.
If explosives were used to slice the steel columns there would be
molten steel in the debris.
