nealglover, any paper that suggests a building will collapse through it's path of most resistance is not worth reading, as it defies the laws of physics.
Do buildings collapse? of course they do in a fashion that follows a path of least resistance. Do they collapse in on themselves through the path of greatest or most resistance, not on this planet they don't!
You really do defy believe.
This paper: http://www-math.mit.edu/~bazant/WTC/WTC-asce.pdf
(which you have deemed as "Not Worth Reading") was written and peer reviewed by professional Engineers and was published in the Journal of Engineering Mechanics.
I am sure you "think" you know more than they do.
But I hate to break it you ....... You don't.
Here is the list of people who were on the editorial board of that Paper, you might want to let them know that you have some "New Information" for them to consider.
I'm sure they will all be as impressed as I am
Younane Abousleiman, Ph.D., University of Oklahoma
Ching S. Chang, Ph.D., P.E., University of Massachusetts
Joel P. Conte, Ph.D., P.E., University of California, San Diego
Henri Gavin, Duke University
Bojan B. Guzina, University of Minnesota
Christian Hellmich, Dr.Tech., Vienna University of Technology
Lambros Katafygiotis, Ph.D., Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Nik Katopodes, Ph.D., University of Michigan
Nicos Makris, University of Patras
Robert J. Martinuzzi, P.E., University of Calgary
Arif Masud, Ph.D., University of Illinois, Chicago
Arvid Naess, Ph.D., Norwegian University of Science and Technology
Khaled W. Shahwan, Daimler Chrysler Corporation
George Voyiadjis, Ph.D., EIT, Louisiana State University
Yunping Xi, Ph.D., University of Colorado
so I will suggest as I did before that we simply choose one event and then research it as thoroughly as possible!
Sorry to say this, but you are not capable of any kind of meaningful research.
You can't even take on board information when other people do the research for you and spoon feed it to you FFS
