31. An issue NIST (I think I remember this) raises is that differential heat
Edited on Fri Oct-07-05 12:24 AM by petgoat
causes a weakening. So yes, the fire needs to be isolated to a
particular part of the vertical core structure. But in that model we
need two versions--one where most of the non-fireball fuel stayed on the
impact floors, and one where much of the fuel fell down the elevator
shafts and presumably never caught fire.

Why do we presume the elevator shaft fuel didn't catch fire? Because
AFAIK none of the people who walked down the stairs reported
encountering heat.

Again I think spooked is to be commended and not ridiculed for actually
trying this out.
