"I would therefore be very interested if you could direct me to these collapse simulations based on real-world physics that you describe."
So would I.
And I'd bet that thousands of architects and engineers would be most interested in seeing such simulations, as well.
flyingswan, on the other hand, seems quite satisifed when the entire event is summed up in one sentence, such as "Collapse was inevitable", or NIST's explanation - "global collapse ensued".
