Aluminium. It would take the temperature up to the correct level to melt steel. Basically an incindery? Why no escape on the corners of the building? An H> between two poles holding safety line as people descend.

Some of these buildings are so tall I doubt there will ever be safe escape routes from top floors if fires star somewhere in the middle

asail and parachute, simple. I still think a 6 inch stair rail that a grav clamp (climbers clap that lock in crevices when weight is applied) can run freely as You decend on all the outside corners of the building would work well. especially for smaller buildings 3 story plus. cars needed to be redesigned with crumple zone when seat belts stopped working. they could have also deployed helicopters for people trapped on the highest floors.


They'd have needed a massive fleet of helicopters for such a rescue to have the remotest chance of success, and not only that the updrafts and thermals caused by the intense heat would have made it extremely risky for the chopper pilots.

I've seen cast iron explode because there was water on the surface of the sand mould before, it's a bit dramatic. I think that using raw aluminium as the core of a skyscraper would be a bad idea due to the elasticity of it, it would be an alloy or a composite with higher heat tolerances.

Arfur was posting in the news section last month and there's nothing wrong with his thread.

Leave him alone. :thumbsup:

Oh yeah, I didn't notice the date of that ..... nor the thread title before....it must have gone through the active topics pages quicker than a dodgy vindaloo.

Still I was right, we haven't seen Arthur since then.
