it recently occurred to me how to combine computer precision with physical modelling that would probably prevent cheating via computer lies.
Use a 3D printer to produce each level of the north tower. The thickness of columns could be varied to the level of precision of the printer. Each level could be made as strong or as weak as desired. Empty spaces could be left to insert metal slugs or ball bearings to control the weight of each level. And the printing process would mean it would not be to difficult to do multiple tests. They could be repeated all over the world.
So how big are 3D printers to scale 208 ft by 208 ft?
If the printer could make and object 2 feet by 2 feet then each level would be 1.5 inches tall. The floors would be pretty thin.
It would still be an expensive project but it would make it possible for the core and perimeter to maintain a consistent pattern without tremendous amounts of construction by hand which could not be as consistent. _________________ Physics is Phutile
