Statement on 9/11: “The top part of a WTC tower cannot one way crush down the bottom part under any circumstances. You can fly as many planes as you like into tops of towers and the towers will never collapse from top down. No structure collapses from top down! No small top part of a structure can ever crush a bigger bottom part. Anyone suggesting the opposite is a terrorist!.”

Additional Information: “40 years experience of ship structural design, construction, operations, maintenance and repairs! All over the world.”

Paper: Discussion of a paper by Bazant et al. “What Did and Did Not Cause Collapse of World Trade Twin Towers in New York,”
