Dr. Leroy Hulsey, chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), is now 18 months into his two-year computer modeling study on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7).

Dr. Hulsey first announced his preliminary findings at the Justice In Focus conference in New York City on September 10 and 11 — where he stated categorically that there was “zero” probability that WTC 7 collapsed due to the fires it experienced on 9/11.

Since then, he has given two more presentations. The first was on September 29 to the UAF student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The second was on October 19 to the Fairbanks Branch of the ASCE (where Dr. Hulsey previously served as president). We enthusiastically invite you to watch these presentations and the Q&As that follow, which provide a stimulating glimpse into how the engineering community may respond to Dr. Hulsey’s groundbreaking research when his findings are released next year.

As Dr. Hulsey explains in the presentations, he and his team will exhaustively examine other conceivable scenarios that may have led to collapse over the final six months of the study. They will also study the building’s response to losing individual columns and will attempt to simulate the kinds of failures that would be required to bring the building down in the manner observed on 9/11. After their final report has been published, Dr. Hulsey will begin submitting his findings to leading engineering journals and will attend conferences around the country.

  One Response to “Dr. Leroy Hulsey Shares His Preliminary Findings with the Fairbanks Branch of the ASCE”

  1. Dr. Hulsey has already found the creatioNIST report on WTC7 [sequential failure due to normal office furnishings fires] to be untenable. Actually “NO” was the word in response to whether or not the NIST version was possible.
    The boomer for me so far, is the Alaska modeling factored in connections for ‘exterior moment frame’ – the outer column/structure not included in the NIST algorithm – and found by doing so, the axial ‘Thermal Expansion’, pushed AWAY from the critical girder between columns 79 and 44.
    The exact opposite result to the creatioNIST critical fail instant.
    “The observed fire activity gleaned from the videos and photographs was not a model input, and thus one should not expect a perfect correspondence between predicted high temperatures and observed fire activity.” NCSTAR 1 – 9 : 378 which helps when doctoring the books to engineer an agnotological collapse through a computer model that bears no resemblance to physical, observable, reality.

    Which also might explain the lack of peer-review and expert contest of the creatioNIST report : “NIST Catherine Fletcher FOIA Officer :”We are, however, withholding 3,370 files. The NIST Director determined that the release of these data might jeopardize public safety. This withheld data include remaining input and all results files of the ANSYS 16-story Case B collapse initiation model, break element source code, ANSYS script files for the break elements, custom executable ANSYS file, and all spreadsheets and other supporting calculations used to develop floor connection failure modes and capacities, In order to work with the ANSYS files, a copy of the licensed software is required.”

    The ‘break element source codes’ proving a ‘new phenomenon’ in material building failures AT free Fall on modern steel framed high rises due to ‘normal office furnishings fires around ONE column/girder seat on ONE floor, already OUT at the time of critical fail, is ‘being withheld’, because peer-review and open expert contest of that code would ‘jeopardize public safety.’
