|Abstract:||The paper presents a very interesting concept of an accidental demolition, whereby heavy damage sustained by an intermediate story of a building leads to the upper part of the structure crushing the lower one in a sequence of story collapse steps. The focus of the paper is on the treatment of equations of motion and very few numbers are quoted; that is, numbers that relate to the physical properties of the structure discussed, namely the World Trade Center (WTC)towers. The following comments are intended to fill that gap as well as to ascertain the likelihood of the applicability of this concept.|
