85. It's NOT chicken wire, it is garden fencing meant to keep out rabbits. And
you're saying they use heat-treated steel in buildings because it is weaker than non-heat-treated steel? Or it is only weaker when exposed to fires? Does that make sense?

Well, since I used the same set-up for all three expts, by the last expt, the steel WAS effectively heat-treated and should have behaved like WTC steel. :)

I should also note your reference points out how as the height of the column increases, the load-bearing decreases at double the rate of the height. That makes my design, which has relatively much taller columns than an equivalent floor of the WTC, have much less load bearing capacity-- which is why I don't feel complelled to stack loads of extra bricks or floors on top of it.
