shall we have a fight, my phd vs yours?

Arguments from authority are obviously pointless but be honest, you threw the first jab in the first line of your response. I responded in kind.

Metaphorical fisticuffs aside, the politicical history that led to the modern ERCOT is complicated and nuanced. I am not going to claim to know all of the details but I am aware of a longstanding drive to circumvent federal regulations to save $$. This has been pushed in both private and public sectors in TX for decades. There are definitely some very sound financial reasons for this push but regardless of the logic behind the decision making, the reality of the situation is that most of TX faces higher annualized risk of financial losses from power grid failure than most of the rest of the country (CA is much worse actually but for different reasons). This could be addressed by either improving the reliability of the existing decentralized grid or by tapping into the main western or eastern grids. Most ASCE committees I have participated in advocate for a combination of both approaches. Generally, the US assumes way too much risk of this sort too.

You are calculating the energy of the building when it finally reaches the ground. But during the fall, there is no energy lost.

Energy is never lost ya ding dong. Unless you think conservation of energy is a hoax too that is.

All energy goes into the kinetic energy, the acceleration. This is what you missed in your calculation.

Haha, no I did not miss the kinetic energy. Re-read my last reply. It is clearly stated that all gravitational potential energy is converted to kinetic energy during the collapse. I am not sure you have done enough reading on how kinetic energy would be dissipated is such a situation (or in general for that matter).

You need the energy of the dynamics of the fall.

You might be referring to the turbulence of the falling objects. This is typically manifested as a dissipation of rotational kinetic energy as members spin around and bang into each other. Again, I clearly did not miss this.

The architects and engineers do know. Just check their website. The link I provided above explains it very clearly, much better than me.

You did not provide a link. I am sure architects and engineers (again, I am an engineer) could describe this better than you can though.

You need to be more wary of confirmation bias. Everything else you just said is irrelevant or nonsensical.

Feel free to do the calculations and tests, but your "engineering view" is very wrong.

I feel I have done this already and I am not sure you have backed up your claim properly. I am a licensed civil engineer with extensive experience designing and analyzing tall buildings. During my phd studies, I actually modeled impact loading and progressive collapse of tall strucutres using the finite element method combined with an averaged langragian-eulerian coordinate system approach to handle the large displacements and deformations. The analyses considered nonlinear deformation patterns, stress and temperature dependency, and a myriad of other factors. I could go on but the point is, I am not afraid to do these calculations myself and I am not ignorant on this topic.

Just do a simple energy-analysis. Where does the energy come from that destroys and pulverises all the concrete and (some) steel. If the buildings falls down near gravity acceleration, there is no energy to draw from it.

Wrong. The gravitational potential energy of the static structure is converted to kinetic energy during the collapse which is dissipated through collisions between falling elements (turbulence) and between falling elements and the ground. The total energy drawn from these collisions is equal to the height of the center of mass times the weight of the mass that is falling (i.e. PE=mgh). Even if we only consider the portion of the building above the impact zone, the energy involved is more than enough to melt steel, pulverize concrete, and even cause a shockwave in the ground that can be measured by seismometers from other states. These towers were about 210m tall and 500000t each! Any "explosion" more energetic would have been obvious for anyone to see I would think.

In actual demolitions, this gradual collapse is sometimes used. And it shows a far slower acceleration, that falls down to zero acceleration (=constant speed). They reach some kind of terminal velocity. In these demolitions, they need to carefully prepare the collapse and remove almost all underlying carrying structures. Because anything off centre creates an imbalance that increases with each step. This often causes the building to fall sideways, instead of downwards. Or just get stuck half-way.

No. I am embarrassed for you after reading this part.

The planes are just a distraction, only capable of starting severe fires. Just like in a plane crash, we get a fireball and then a quick fire that exhausts all the fuel. According to the firemen the fires were under control, until (according to them) everything suddenly exploded. And if you look more into the planes, you will see that there has been some major mix-up with military hijacking simulations. And the remains of the planes that hit the buildings, were traced back to military versions of planes.

What evidence do you have of these claims?

Never Forget? by magnora7 in corruption

[–]whereswhat 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It seems to me that everything you have listed could have been accomplished by simply taking down those structures by smashing planes into them. I still just don't see why this theory about an explosive is needed.

From my own engineering point of view, it certianly is plausible that the collapse pattern observed could have originated from overly deformed load bearing elements (due to high temperature) combined with a structural system with reduced redundancy from the impact.

Belief without evidence (i.e. faith) is required for the followers of both religions and cults. You wanna talk about changing human nature? Some horrific stuff has been done in the name of faith. Google it if you don't believe me.

Religious texts are written in a way to be ambiguous so that people of authority may interpret them in a way that best suits the interests of those in power, even if those interests change over time.

I am sorry if you find yourself in a situation where everyone around you prescribes to a particular faith. I have been there. When you start asking questions, and I mean really asking, things will start to unravel fast. It can feel very isolating and scary, especially if you are young. Just know you are not alone.

I think quant difficulty really depends on the teacher and the amount of statistics required as a prerequisite. Also useful to know a fair bit of chemistry and material science. But yeah, not the easiest subject out there.

Black Man Yelling All Lives Matter & a bunch of white people scream at him. We live in a clown world. by [deleted] in WorldPolitics

saying "all lives matter" is implicitly stating the opinion that black people aren't disproportionately targeted by the police or worse off in society in general

No, it isn't. Please stop peddling this rhetoric. Just because that twisted interpretation is being pushed on us doesn't make it true. Use your brain. If you live in a world where it isn't okay to say "all lives matter", you live in a fucked up world.

The dedication you have for your tribe (america) is enabling you to feel opposed to an entire group of people. Remember, america is a nation of immigrants and their descendants.

There is no destroying globalism without destroying our ability to communicate using modern technology. Get off the internet if you wanna practice what you preach. Otherwise, open your mind. There are advantages and drawbacks to both globalism and tribalism. I agree that the challenges both bring are perilous. In the end, however, we are one species stuck on one rock hurdling around space. No matter where on the rock we live, our actions may affect all of us.

The problem is with racist shit

Yes, but I would argue the larger problem is tribalism. Racism is only one way tribalism manifests itself.

No, it's because you are looking for confirmation of your own beliefs. The irony of your username and the fact that you can't focus all the way through a comment of an opposing view is hilarious.

Yeah the biggest problem with police in the US is the conflict of interest when it comes to ticketing. The PD should not suffer if no tickets are issued.

Also, why the fuck are tickets prices not based on your income level? The state would make way more money and broke college students would still get to eat that month if they accidentally roll through a stop sign when no one is around.

Homosexuals have always been persecuted because of their sexual practices. Outside of modern times, I cannot find a single example of a society that gave any voice to these people in politics whatsoever.

A plethora of studies have shown that humans (especially males) tend to react with disgust when faced with homosexuality (especially among other males). It is a similar emotional reaction to seeing maggots or feces, for example. This strong emotional tendency has led to social norms (and even some laws) that are detrimental to the well being of homosexual individuals.

If someone does something that seems disgusting to most, their behavior is not necessarily wrong. One of the defining features of us humans is that we possess the ability to rise above our emotional response and only act if there is a logical need. The (US) political landscape is understandably in a bit of turmoil over this at the moment because there are large portions of the population who prefer to act on emotion when it comes to this issue still.
