    Excellent.

    So when you started this thread, you thought the 1964 truss drawings were the only types of trusses used (per the quote and pictures below) and figured out later that there were variations.

    The publication from 1964 corresponds with the construction footage.


    Glad we cleared that up.

    At the start of the thread I didn't know. About halfway through it struck me that they had to vary though because the core columns are centred from top to bottom of the building but decrease in size as the height increases, so necessitating the need for a variance at the core ends in both the length and therefor the angle also. Unlike you, who realised it 5 minutes ago when you had it spelt out for you that you'd admitted as much without even realising it.

    But you were so sure about things gerrycan! You posted blurry photos, videos, and drawings to prove how right you were!!! You were shown to be wrong many times over, but you still tried to hammer a square peg into a round hole. I told you from the very beginning you couldn't trust those 1964 drawings and why I asked for stamped construction drawings.

    Case in point.

    You wanted everyone to believe the above truss drawing was for long span trusses. You stated numerous times the 1964 were PROVEN to be correct. Show me where 1'-6 3/4" shows up in the "dimension A" table in the previous drawing.

    You're done here. You've BEEN done for a long time and you finally admitted it. 116 pages of your blustering, lies, structural incompetence.

    Gamolon. You just got handed 2 identically printed part lists for long and short span trusses, with the lengths in big numbers at the top, and had to be told TWICE that the sheet was generic for both spans.

    You've admitted that the long and short spans both varied throughout the building (even if you don't realise that you have) and we have a booklet that is non specific to any floor, and NIST's ANSYS detail that is specific to floor 96.

    I think it's pretty clear who's done here Gamelon.

    ADD this is one of those many many times where Gamolon is likely to throw the toys out of the pram again and storm off, never to return. (until the next time he returns in a day or so)

    "reading comprehension". Indeed.
