##
Simulation of Total Collapse Time

In the piledriver/smashdown collapse theory,
the descent of falling mass would be slowed by the need
to accelerate stationary mass as it's encountered.

Simulations described
here
calculate total collapse times based on a set of simplifying assumptions
favorable to short collapse times.
