Below is a series of twenty-five provable points which clearly demonstrate that the reports produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on the destruction of the World Trade Center (WTC) were unscientific and fraudulent. Therefore NIST itself – including its lead authors, Shyam Sunder and John Gross – should be investigated.

WTC 7: The Third Skyscraper

  1. Omission of Girder Stiffeners Shown on Frankel Drawing #9114

  3. WTC 7 Collapse at Free-Fall Acceleration Is Not Explained
  4. Videos of the Collapse of WTC 7 Betray NIST’s Computer Model
  5. Claims of Investigating Controlled Demolition Without Testing for Explosive Residues
  6. Change of Statements on Composite Beams and Shear Stud Use Between Drafts
  7. Refusing of FOIA Requests

All Three Buildings

  1. Negligence in Salvaging Steel
  2. Ignoring the Results of FEMA 403, Appendix C
  3. Involvement in Not Saving Steel for Investigation
  4. Fire Simulations and Durations Are Exaggerated
  5. No Discussion of the Molten Metal Found in the Rubble of the Three Collapsed Buildings
  6. Refusal to Test for Explosive Residue
  7. Failure to Follow Standard Fire Investigation Protocol

The Twin Towers

  1. Stripping of the Fire Proofing Is Exaggerated
  2. Pre-Collapse Steel Temperatures Are Exaggerated
  3. Tested Floor Assemblies Did Not Fail
  4. Initiation of Collapse – “Inward Bowing” Was Induced Artificially
  5. Column Stress due to Load Redistribution Is Not Sufficient to Cause Failure
  6. No Explanation Given for Horizontal Propagation of Collapse
  7. WTC 1 Tilt Occurred After Symmetrical Collapse for at Least Two Stories
  8. No Jolt – Continuous Acceleration of Collapse Was Ignored
  9. No Pile Driver Is Observed in Videos
  10. Column Loads Were Calculated for Worst Case, Not Actual In-Service Loads
  11. Molten Metal Observed Pouring out of the Corner of WTC 2 Remains Unresolved
