4 South Tower

Tip: compare the dust clouds with a(n) [artificial] volcanic eruption

4.1 Checking the facts

What happened to the tip of the South Tower?

The answer is correct. Thank you.
Unfortunately the answer is incorrect.

4.2 Summary

Animation: Destruction of the South Tower

Template: https://wikispooks.com/wiki/Nuclear_Demolition#Atomic_demolition

Torrents of molten steel

Just before its destruction, molten steel was pouring out of the breaking points of the South Tower.

Little fountains of liquid metal, similar to discharges or little detonations were ejected from the facade.

4.2.1 The turning moment disappearing & disintegration during the free fall

When the South Tower collapsed, the spire turned for about 2.5 seconds in free fall.

The rotation velocity then decreased [free downward acceleration of fall] and stopped at an inclination angle of approx. 15°.

Analysis: http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/analysis/collapses/shattering.html

Conservation of angular momentum is the tendency of a rotating solid object to continue rotating at the same rate in the absence of torque.

Initially the block consisting of the top 30 stories of the tower acted as a solid object, and rotated about a fulcrum near the impact zone.

Although the fulcrum was the axis of rotation, the block had two types of momentum: the angular momentum of the block around its center of gravity, and the linear momentum of its center of gravity tilting away from the tower's vertical axis.

When the portion of the building below the collapse zone disintegrated, the block would preserve its angular momentum by continuing to rotate at the same rate.

But in reality, the rotation of the block rapidly decelerated as the downward plunge began.

4.2.2 Mushrooming and simultaneous escaping of steam at the foundation


The twin towers were destroyed as standing towers from top to bottom while dust clouds were shooting up from the ground and steam developed at the foundation.

4.2.3 Steam explosions of the facade

During the disintegration of the South Tower, explosions shooting out of the facade far below the line of destruction could be observed.

4.2.4 Eruption behavior

An eruption-like behavior could obviously be observed for the South Tower.

1. Black central cloud (core of the building)

2. Building structure still intact

3. Ejected material

4. Steam explosion of the facade

4.2.5 Formation of zones

During its disintegration, a clear separation between two different types of dust clouds was observed at the South Tower

Source: http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/photos/collapses.html

1. Vaporized steel (black)

2. Pulverized facade (white)

4.2.6 Fountain and standing cloud stem

The disintegration pattern resembled a water fountain.

Aftermath of the explosion: the standing cloud stem

The formation of the South Tower’s cloud stem was less distinctive than the one at the North Tower.

The aftermath of the explosion is overshadowed by a steel / concrete dust cloud that develops rapidly.

1. Nuclear cloud stem

2. Energetic center

Comparison / interpretation

The suggested model gives a plausible explanation for the formation of a cloud stem.

4.2.7 Gas eruptions from the ground, pressure compensation and updrafts

The disintegration of the South Tower was accompanied by gas outbursts from below.

These gas outbursts took place just before the dust cloud reached the ground.

4.2.8 Formation of the "Spire" (South Tower)

Standing steel structures remained to be visible during the disintegration of the tower.
