I think that happened many hours later. Not sure if anyone was in or around it when it happened.

I don't think anyone did. Didn't they evacuate as many bldgs as possible around the area following the airplanes striking the bldgs? I remember seeing the windows falling out of WTC7 during the live news report and them commenting how the bldg may soon collapse as well, which it did. So very doubtful anyone was in the bldg at the time of collapse.

Im just asking, because i cant find info on why it collapsed.

The towers collapsed because of the jet fuel, but why did 7 collapse?

not to be rude.. but you arent looking very hard.. if you google WTC-7 collapse, you will come up with thousands of links to crazy theories.. i dont remember exactly what caused it, but i think it was fire and damage from the other collapses??

quote:

On September 11, 2001, 7 WTC was damaged by debris when the nearby North Tower of the WTC collapsed. The debris also ignited fires, which continued to burn throughout the afternoon on lower floors of the building. The building's internal fire suppression system lacked water pressure to fight the fires, and the building collapsed completely at 5:21:10 p.m.[1] The collapse began when a critical column on the 13th floor buckled and triggered structural failure throughout, which was first visible from the exterior with the crumbling of the east mechanical penthouse at 5:20:33 p.m.

Giuliani and staff had set up there and left when the first tower collapsed, but when debris from the second falling hit it it caught fire at the top

Everyone was well evacuated and the owner of WTC told them to pull fire fighters out for their safety and they just let it burn if I remember correctly, until it collapsed

the wiki article is not a bad source if you are just looking for general info.. you seem like you may be trying to get at something though, so i'm going to bow out..

I just want accurate info on how WTC 7 was collapsed. Detailed info on how the fires collapsed it. Temperature, material,.....etc.

A shite ton of debris from a 110 story building and an incredible inferno of temps that were over 1000 degrees.

Simple google search will give you the factual information if you weed through the morons who claim some empty building was blown up.

No, that is just what pushed them over the edge.

What damaged the towers to the point that the fires within could cause a collapse with the design of the towers that relied on the outer skin for support of the interior (Tube-frame design in engineering parlance if you want to look into it further).

The plane's impact severely compromised that support structure.

(This also explains why the building fell inward fwiw)

Fine, but this is not an engineering board. Why are you posting this here?

Is that you, Rosie O'Donnell?

Metal, when it gets hot enough, is malleable and it bends. Check out a video of horseshoes being made on Youtube sometime.

Yes...which is exactly why it collapsed. Hot steel = soft steel.

WTC 7 contained up to 43,000 gallons (162,273 liters) of diesel fuel for its emergency generators. It is believed that at least some fuel pumps did kick on after the Con Edison power plant went down at 9:59 (see FEMA, NIST reports), perhaps fueling the fires, although this remains speculation.

I'm surprise TX Tiger isn't all over this thread.

I'll correct your question for him/her/it:
