But neither NLM nor special relativity are anything to do with buckling girders.
Neither is Verinage; nor VW cars, bowling balls, sheets of glass, brick chimneys. Annoying these discussion things have a nasty habit of evolving, much faster than people, too. NLM can, are and should be used to calculate how much force (Q: what is measured in Newtons?), mass, acceleration etc. was present - that's what they do! How do you calculate those values without NLM?! You over complicate things on purpose, it seems. It doesn't need to be broken down to sub atomic levels - we're not in need of a molecular investigation here, but you appear to be claiming just that. Newton's laws will do just fine to give a broadly accurate picture of forces, masses, accelerations, energy, and I suspect you know it. Did you take that refresher I offered? I doubt it. He's very well qualified, the lecturer, and quite engaging.
Almost as annoying as an evolving discussion is being continually logged out by your site, hanging, freezing, ages to load pages - and that's been for a while now, but much worse last two or three days. It's pretty much impossible. Anyone else?
How about some answers?
1) Have you sought the answer from your engineer pals on whether Verinage demo would be considered for the towers? Do you still think it could be? (Forget all other constraints except the ability to do the job)
2) Do you still think the top part of the tower under construction looks 'relatively spindly'? Or would you now allay fears of the dreaded spindly sledgehammer?
3) Do you think the photograph you chose from the many available, to represent a tower, was an honest accurate representation? Likewise your graphic.
4) Why did you choose that photograph?
These aren't rhetorical.
