  • 9/11 was an inside job, the steel beams melted the steel beams. Hitler would've stopped 9/11 if he was still alive

    ^ Hitler + shrek stop 9/11

    ^ Hitler stops 9/11 again

    It was all about oil

  • The issue wasn't steel beams being melted, the issue was steel beams being subjected to sufficient temperatures to compromise their structural integrity. They then buckled and twisted. The temperatures from the burning jet fuel were sufficient for the beams to lose up enough of their structural integrity to cause a collapse. This was also due to the design of the building itself.

  • Steel often melts at around 1370 degrees C (2500°F).

    But

    "Steel loses about 50 percent of its strength at 1100°F,"

    And

    FACT: Jet fuel burns at 800° to 1500°F

    So.

    A tower with steel beams that lost more than 50% of their strength, and that was hit by a plane weighing

    735,000 pounds (333,400 kg) for the -100 to 970,000 lb

    That's travelling at not less than 270 mph

    Is going to fall.

  • If just a simple fire can melt steel, then obviously jet fuel plus a huge impact like a plane, can melt it too... or at least weaken it to the point of being able to easily bend it (as many videos prove).

  • It can't liquefy steel beams, but it can make them pliable to the point where they can't support a whole fucking skyscraper anymore. This was settled years ago.

  • Jet fuel alone can't melt steel beams, but the intense fire it creates when burning certainly can... and who ever said jet fuel melted the steel beams. I know the company that did the analysis of the Twin Towers collapse and what caused it, it was the destabilization of the structures from the collision with the jet planes themselves (increased weight on the load bearing surface and the force at which the buildings where hit basically detached the building from it's foundation, once it started to collapse the weight of it them just took themselves down).

  • It actually burns so hot that when most the fuel burnt instantly upon collision it also caused building 7 to collapse as well... lol

  • Kerosene can heat beams enough to make them pliable. They don't have to melt to fail.

  • No they can't unless you set them on fire for a certain period of time

  • NO... jet fuel is more or less just kerosene. The fuel itself is less aggressive than gasoline.

    The FIRE from the BURNING jet fuel, is however, hotter, and long term exposure to that heat would soften the beams and cause the weight of the structure above the fire to collapse down.

    No conspiracy. The buildings fell exactly as mentioned

  • Even a welding torch can, given enough time, and jet fuel burns much hotter. Any competent steel industry worker could tell you that.
