Re: About my WTC paper

How does an engineering specialist speak?  If he is addressing a group of engineers, perhaps his terminology will contain a lot of engineer-speak, but if he is addressing a larger broader body of people, then it may be in easily understood terms.  The main objective of anybody is to communicate with fellow workers, friends and the public and engineers are not generally good at that. Although most of the writers on this forum are better than most engineers including me.

Harold,
 
I am sending you a copy as to everyone else, who requested it.
The idea is to give you a stimulating Sunday reading.
(Here, Down Under, it is already Sunday night, while you have your Sunday waiting for you.
Good life there!.)
If you did not receive yours, pls let me know.
 
I use info contained in FEMA report.
The purpose is to derive collapse time, based on structural reasoning.
This variable (duration) was not prominent in FEMA report, so disagreement is not an issue.
 
But, between you and me, I think FEMA invastigation was inadequate.
 
(If you watched the chief speak, you would notice his terminology was not that of an engineering specialist.)

I would like a copy.  I take it that you disagree with the NIST report.  ht=
