NIST's Hybrid Theory

NIST abandoned the truss-failure theory in favor of a modified version of the column-failure theory.

  • Fires caused trusses to sag
  • Trusses pulled perimeter walls inward
  • Hat trusses transferred to perimeter "column instability" to core columns
  • Global collapse ensued

NIST's Report is a study in deception
