The World Trade Center did not use load-bearing concrete.
The only load that a floor system transferred to the load bearing columns was the weight of that specific floor.
How about you provide evidence that he 'knows full well'.
Totally false, oralloy.
You know nothing of building science/structure.
The entire structure was tied together thru the floor system. Wind loads, which OBVIOUSLY cannot operate directly on the floor system OR the central core columns, were transferred by the rigid poured in place floor system that was tied by the steel floor trusses to both the outside wall 14" box columns and to the interior core columns.
Floor loading, people, furniture, etc was also passed to the exterior box columns and the interior core columns. Again, thru the truss system.
It is Israel that has the illegal nuclear sites not to mention illegal nuclear weapons. It is also testament to what arrogant war criminals the usa and other western nations are when they allow Israel to flaunt international law and gain and possess some 80 illegal nuclear weapons.
"Tying the structure together and providing rigidity" is a separate issue from the fact that the poured concrete only bore the weight of that specific floor, and not the weight of the structure itself.
Not at all. My statement was correct.
No, it is not. The concrete, in concert with the rebar, the steel floor pans and the shear studs, all acting as ONE, was what passed structural loads from the exterior box columns to the interior core columns.
