Today Iâ€™m thrilled to officially announce AE911Truthâ€™s most important project in our nine-year existence: a two-year computer modeling study of World Trade Center Building 7â€™s destruction.
Before you read any further, I invite you to watch our short WTC 7 Evaluation Video on WTC7Evaluation.org and meet Dr. Leroy Hulsey, the principal investigator of this study.
About Dr. Hulsey
Dr. Hulsey is a professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) and the Chair of UAFâ€™s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He brings decades of experience in failure analysis and modeling of structures.
In May, he and his team of Ph.D. research assistants began a two-year process of modeling WTC 7. Using the sophisticated computer models they are developing, Dr. Hulsey and his team will evaluate the probability of various hypothetical causes of WTC 7â€™s collapse.
AE911Truth, backed by our 2,390 architects and engineers, is funding Dr. Hulseyâ€™s research because it is imperative to our mission that WTC 7 finally be modeled in a transparent and unbiased process â€” and that the findings be disseminated to every corner of the engineering community. Already weâ€™re seeing tremendous interest in the study, as several local engineering groups have invited Dr. Hulsey to speak about his work.
When awareness of the study spreads throughout the entire engineering field and Dr. Hulsey begins to publish his findings, it will be a turning point in how the destruction of WTC 7 is viewed â€” both within the engineering world and beyond.
Over the remaining 18 months of the study, we will be sharing Dr. Hulseyâ€™s progress on our website WTC7Evaluation.org in the form of videos, reports, and data.
Along the way, we welcome input and feedback from technical experts and from members of the general public. This worldwide peer review process will help Dr. Hulsey â€” and the independent technical review committee that is vetting his work â€” to ensure that the modeling is unimpeachable.
Be sure to sign up for the WTC 7 Evaluation newsletter if you would like to receive regular updates and alerts when new material is posted.
This Is Your Investigation
For nine years, we at AE911Truth have been demanding an independent investigation of the World Trade Center destruction. Now, instead of asking for it, we are making it happen.
One reason that only NIST and a few engineering firms involved in lawsuits have modeled WTC 7 is that these studies are extremely complex and quite expensive. Fortunately, at a reasonable cost of $214,000, our two-year contract with UAF is a very good investment, and it is already partially funded. But we need the help of our entire community in order to fund it fully.
There are two ways you can support Dr. Hulseyâ€™s research: 1) Become a monthly a sustaining supporter until April 2017 at a level that is comfortable for you (this method is preferred), or 2) Make a generous one-time donation today. We also welcome you to do both!
We know many of you are sustaining supporters of AE911Truth, and we are profoundly grateful for your generous commitment. We hope you can dig a little bit deeper for just 18 months to help us fund our most important project to date.
Because I believe so much in Dr. Hulseyâ€™s study, Iâ€™m making my own one-time donation of $500 and I'm becoming a monthly sustaining supporter at the $25/month level. Please join me!
Very truly yours,
