130. No, you missed the distinction I'm making.
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 09:14 AM by eomer
That's probably my fault because I clumsily split it over two posts.

Bazant asserts that only crush-down will occur during the first phase. He says that Part C will remain rigidly intact during this phase, which will last until the intact Part C reaches the ground. Only then, he asserts, will a distinct phase of crush-up of Part C occur.

My improved version of Bazant is an initial phase of crush-up of Part C followed by crush-down of Part A, with or without simultaneous crush-up of Part C continuing.

No way can the same model be used for these two versions. Demonstrating that the second phase (crush-down of Part A) will ever actually commence is something that Bazant has not yet done.
