A new study by engineering experts looking into the collapse of Tower Seven on 9/11 have claimed that the office fires in the building could not have brought down the skyscraper.
The ‘official cause’, according to a report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is that flaming debris from the neighbouring Twin Towers crashed into the building, causing fires on multiple floors.
Over several hours these fires became so intense that they weakened the building’s steel supports and it collapsed, The Daily Star reports.
Now though, engineers from from the University of Alaska have claimed that the fires were not responsible for the building’s destruction.
The study comes from a team led by Dr. J. Leroy Hulsey who in a presentation of his research at the Justice In Focus Symposium in New York dismissed the fire narrative as false.
It is our preliminary conclusions, based upon our work to date, that fire did not produce the failure at this particular building.
Mr Hulsey and his team used modelling techniques to evaluate the possible causes of the building’s collapse and are looking at the structure itself, trying to put together what happened that day.
Unfortunately a bit of digging reveals that the study may be a bit biased as it was funded by the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, a group who advocate the government to reveal the ‘truth’ behind 9/11.
And, despite having the support of a number of engineers and scientists, most mainstream researchers do not think they’re a credible source and the NIST’s explanation of collapse is universally accepted by the majority of the scientific community.
