Why do you think there was a shortage of iron, sulphur and oxygen?  They are three of the commonest elements on the planet and plentiful in buildings, too.  Expose steel to the other two and you get a mixture that attacks the steel at much lower temperatures than you need to melt steel.

This is just wilful ignorance on your part.  You've had years now to educate yourself on the difference between melting and intergranular corrosion, but you'd rather parade your confusion for all to mock.

Unfortunately for you I understand the process fine and it is written plain and simple in the FEMA study:  intergranular melting”.  You only try to confuse and obfuscate the issue with your personal invention/word games above: “intergranular corrosion”?  No – the intergranular melting is a form of corrosion.

What this means, is that whilst the elemental iron did not melt, grain boundaries within the structural steel did, causing it to weaken and fall apart.  Should this process occur rapidly, or be held in such a state over time, the observation would be a glowing hot dripping metal from the steelwork (which is perhaps not so coincidentally what many eyewitnesses described).

And pffft... still talking about that "detailed study" which you have not even read?  Sisson’s hypothesis and experiment to replicate the phenomenon through natural corrosion failed to determine the time necessary to reach state of the WTC steelwork and therefore is inconclusive.  Everyone knows the simple fact that corrosion occurs, but it needs to be determined how long natural corrosion would take to reproduce the WTC effect (hint:  it would be longer than a few weeks, in which timeframe the WTC steel was recovered) and then compared to how thermite fares in replicating the phenomenon.

Either way, melted steel at the WTC is confirmed - not melting of the elemental iron, but melting of the steelwork.

Anyhow, we’ve been through the argument on this thread, no need to rehash it: -

Operation Northwoods was a 1962 plan by the US Department of Defense to cause acts of violence, blamed on Cuba, in order to generate U.S. public support for military action against the Cuban government. The plan called for various false flag actions, such as staged terrorist attacks and plane hijackings, on U.S. and Cuban soil.

I'll leave that to Prof. Sisson, one of the people who descovered the phenomenon.  Here he is talking to the BBC:

Sisson: Well, it was attacked by what we determined was a liquid slag. When we did the analysis, we actually identified it as iron — a liquid containing iron, sulfur, and oxygen. You can see what it does is it attacks the grain boundaries, and then this bit would have eventually fallen out, and it would have continued the attack.

Narrator: Professor Sisson says that it didn't melt. It eroded. The cause was those very hot fires in the debris after 9/11 that cooked the steel for weeks. The sulfur came from masses of gypsum wallboard that was pulverized and burned in the fires.

Sisson: I don't find it very mysterious at all — that if I find steel in this sort of high temperature atmosphere that's rich in oxygen and sulfur, this would be the kind of result I would expect.


The point is that jetfuel and gravity cannot produce such energy.

Jet fuel can start fires that can weaken steel to the point of structural failure.

Tjhere was no confirmation. Structural engineers and investigators stated for the record they found no evidence of molten steel at ground zero nor at the salvage yards. On another note, what happens when aluminum drips upon a "cherry hot" steel beam whose temperature is high enough to melt aluminum?

On the contrary, conspiracist were duped. :yes: That is why after more than 11 years, not one shred of evidence has surfaced implicating the United States in the 911 attacks. I might add that the steel structure of the Windsor builiding collapsed due to fire and it wasn't struck by an aircraft.

Wow, you have finally got the message.  The two processes are different.  One is melting the other is corrosion.

But you still try and claim that the two processes are both melting.

Amazing.

There are plenty of things in a large building that can burn.  The energy available is enormous.

Tortured thinking Swan.

Jetfuel and gravity cannot generate such energy, nor can the potential energy contained in the structure be so focussed as to keep steel molten for 6 weeks.

The "plenty of things" all comply with the fire code, which means they do not burn well.  They resist burning.  Jetfuel and gravity cannot provide the energy we saw.

Yes they can!! What caused these steel structured buildings in Thailand to collapse?

The Kader Toy Factory Incident

It is reported that buildings numbers 1-4 were four story buildings constructed with an unprotected steel structure. (Unprotected means that the steel was not insulated against heat and looses its strength at high temperatures such as those generated in a structural fire.) The floor of the four buildings were prefabricated concrete. The fire completely destroyed three of the four large buildings.

The buildings themselves were death traps, constructed from un-insulated steel girders that buckled and gave way in less than 15 minutes.

There was no molten steel at ground zero and no one saw molten steel at ground zero because there was nothing there to generate temperatures high enough to melt steel.

You might recall reports of buckling of the WTC buildings as they began to flow in just prior to the collapse of those buildings.

    The World Trade Center's Steel Structure Was Buckling Before the Collapse

Police, Firemen and Civilians Saw Warning Signs of Collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11th 2001

Before the collapse of either tower, evidence the structures of the WTC were failing was reported by Police, Firemen and civilians. As already mentioned, flying around outside the WTC, the NYPD helicopters reported "an inward bowing of the buildings' columns in the minutes before they collapsed." Inside WTC 1, New York City Fire Department's Assistant Chief Joseph Callan realized the building was in trouble even before the first building, building two, collapsed. Interviewed Nov. 2, 2001, Assistant Chief Callan told New York City Fire Marshal Michael Starace, "Approximately 40 minutes after I arrived in the lobby, I made a decision that the building was no longer safe. And that was based on the conditions in the lobby, large pieces of plaster falling, all the 20 foot high glass panels on the exterior of the lobby were breaking. There was obvious movement of the building, and that was the reason on the handy talky I gave the order for all Fire Department units to leave the north tower. Approximately ten minutes after that, we had a collapse of the south tower, and we were sort of blown up against the wall in the lobby of the north tower, and we gathered together those of us who were still able to."

Callan's warnings about the north tower, WTC 1, reached the Office of Emergency Management, OEM. Other people learned from OEM that the WTC buildings were going to collapse. EMT Richard Zarrillo was told to deliver the message. In an Oct 25, 2001 interview Zarrillo explianed, "I said the buildings are going to collapse; we need to evac everybody out. With a very confused look he said who told you that? I said I was just with John at OEM. OEM says the buildings are going to collapse; we need to get out. ... I said, listen, I was just at OEM. The message I was given was that the buildings are going to collapse; we need to get our people out. At that moment, this thunderous, rolling roar came down and that's when the building came down, the first tower came down." 9110161.PDF http://nistreview.org/histories.php

   WTC Pre-Collapse Bowing Debunks 9/11 "Controlled Demolition" Theory

   Indications of the Imminent Collapse of the World Trade Center Buildings Disprove Explosives Theory

Scientists investigating the Sept. 11, 2001 collapse of the twin towers said, "the World Trade Center towers showed telltale signs they were about to collapse several minutes before each crumbled to the ground." There would not be telltale signs if it was explosives (Controlled Demolition) that caused the buildings to collapse.

"In the case of the north tower, police chopper pilots reported seeing the warning signs - an inward bowing of the building facade - at least eight minutes before it collapsed at 10:29 a.m." New York Daily News reporter Paul Shin wrote in his June 19th, 2004 article 9/11 cops saw collapse coming.

Of course they can and in fact, the whole world watched as fire and gravity caused the collapse of the WTC buildings.

Yeah, sure, all the paper in an office building is incapable of burning, as are the furniture and furnishings, the plastics, the paints, the fuel for the generators.  Building fires never happen because everything in buildings meets the fire code.

After your experience with disbelieving the evidence for aluminium, you should be more cautious in promoting indefensible arguments.

Yeah Swan, I forgot to include paper fires as a source of energy.  Like phone books and such.  Yeah, when you add in the paper, I think you're right--it was all the office furniture burning that kept structural steel molten for 6 weeks.

Yes, that's the ticket. :whistle:

Sawdust fire could smolder for weeks or longer

A sawdust fire on the plateau could take weeks or longer to put out. It started this weekend in Cumberland County near the Mayland community. The Cumberland County Fire Department has determined the cause of the sawdust fire was spontaneous combustion.

    Grampians fire contained, expected to smoulder for weeks

THE fire that has been raging for almost two weeks in the Grampians is effectively under control, with more than 300 firefighters managing to get the blaze within containment lines over the weekend.

Horsham incident control centre public information officer Chris Carey said ground crews contained the Victoria Valley complex fire on Saturday night, but the blaze would continue to smoulder away within the contained area for several weeks.

Old Sanders factory still smoldering nearly 2 weeks after fire

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich.

It went up in flames nearly two weeks ago and is still smoldering. People who work and live around the old Sanders factory in Highland Park want to know why the fire is still not out and how long it will burn.

The Highland Park Fire Department is out daily to quell the hot spots, but there is still smoke. We asked the chief why is it taking so long put out.
