44. The inner core isn't going to give very easily if at all

with the perimeter still intact and resisting it.
the perimeter holds up at least 50% of the building's weight.

the core isn't going to collapse with that kind of resistance pulling against it. that's what a CD is designed to do, to remove all the resisting forces holding it up so the building can come down smoothly.

it doesn't work without removing the resistance.
