In Topic: Why did WTC 7 fall but the Dubai tower didn't?

Maybe the dubai tower used concrete instead of steel? Seems to me concrete pillars and pylons would withstand heat better than steel? Any engineers on here?

You rang?

I don't know about the Dubai tower but WTC7 had a fairly peculiar structural design that made it more prone to collapse given the damage and fire location.  IIRC it had what amounted to a structural "spine" that was destroyed by falling debris.  Even then the structure did what it was supposed to do and transferred the load to other structural members up until the point the fire weakened the remaining structure past the failure point.

People try to make conspiracy hay out of the WTC attacks based on the building collapses but they were all pretty textbook.  I have actual textbooks on the shelf, written 20 years before I was born, that describe the failure mechanism in the main towers.
