Dr Leroy Hulsey and two of his students are conducting an investigation for Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth into the causes of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. Dr. Hulsey is an experienced and active professor of Civil Engineering who has co-authored numerous papers in the last decade alone - mostly on bridges and the effects of cold weather on structures like bridges. He has a Ph.D in Structural Engineering, and is currently the department chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Alaska, Fairbanks. In the context of his AE911 work, Dr. Hulsey has been described as a "Forensic Structural Engineer". Richard Gage described him on 9/10/2017 as "one of the top forensic structural engineers in the country". However I can't tell if this is accurate, as it's nearly ONLY used in that context. Since many proponents of 9/11 Truth argue that for the validity of Dr. Hulsey's credentials, and since "forensic structural engineer" would be an ideal credential, then it would be good if this credential could be backed up. He is not described as "forensic" on his university web page, where the word "forensic" does not appear. http://cem.uaf.edu/cee/people/leroy-hulsey.aspx Nor does it appear on this older resume (page 244) It DOES occur on his LinkedIn page though (misspelled twice) https://www.linkedin.com/in/j-leroy-hulsey-31141720/ That's a little odd, as the words "forensic engineering" only come up twice on the uaf.edu web site, and neither are in connection with Dr. Hulsey. https://www.google.com/search?q="forensic+engineering"+site%3Auaf.edu Dr. Hulsey's company Alignment Systems Inc does not have much a web presence. The Google Reviews page has five five-star reviews from 9-10 months ago that do not really indicate what type of work was done. https://www.google.com/search?num=50&q=Alignment Systems Inc fairbanks&oq=Alignment+Systems+Inc+fairbanks Their web site was created on 2016-09-23 (about 12 months ago) and is currently down, and has no history. http://alignmentsystemsinc.com/ They have a facebook page from September 2016, with four followers and one five star review from an account with one friend who appears to be a professional positive reviewer whose friends are also reviewers. https://www.facebook.com/Alignment-Systems-Inc-524881741036484/ They have a Tumblr page from the same time period: Source: https://alignmentsystemsinc.tumblr.com/post/152644656314/construction-claims-service-in-fairbanksak-99709 And then there's a Vimeo account with a video made with stock footage, and then the same thing on YouTube. And then a variety of company directory entries that mistakenly classify it as a wheel alignment company http://listings.findthecompany.com/l/28504850/Alignment-Systems-Inc This odd cluster of social media sites, including a fake looking FourSquare account, and a suspended Twitter account, suggests that someone was paid to establish a social media presence in the fall of 2016. Probably http://411locals.com/ as that's listed as the contact to renew his expired web pageThis is not an uncommon thing for an older business to do. The lifetime of the company has variously been listed as 1993-present and 2002-2013 (both on Linkedin), and 2001-present (in 2011). Presumably he was acting as a consultant, and in about September 2016 decided to increase his social media reach using 411Locals, but did not renew it after a year. However there's basically zero mention of his business name on the internet prior to 2016. So it seems very difficult to determine what exactly Dr. Hulsey's experience is in the field of Forensic Structural Engineering. All that I can tell he has done that comes close is monitor the structural health of bridges. [Update] While the odd social media stuff might look suspicious, I looked up 411local on Yelp, and they had several terrible reviews about very pushy marketing. So quite possibly he just got talked into it by some salesman, then did not renew.
