Looks like they started installing columns through the electrical station at the very southern end of the memorial.

Yes we do. This entire project has become a big joke. Silverstein can't get tenants, NYNJPA won't deal, Testwell Labs faking safety reports, then the PA denies entry to the NYFD when that construction worker fell a few stories.

Well now that the foundations have been laid and the base of this tower, at least the "bones" of it anyway are done, this thing is going to shoot for the sky rather fast, and be done before we know it, and it will be spectacular rather soon. Remember it took a while for the originals to take affect, so why all the fuss?

Are they going to lift up the web cam soon? I can't see a quarter of the top of the tower.

If you're talking about the earthcam, it's for the Memorial, not 1 WTC.

Once the tower is out of view, we can only rely on photographers. But it's interesting to see the memorial completed too.

Thanks bud!

All a wind frame is is how the beams are connected to the columns. They are connected with both a shear and moment connections. The braced wind frame just has diagonals in it.

well,it's a 541m tall building,what do you expect?..remember that the original towers took a few years to be built until the entire project was finished,not to mention that this is obviously a reconstruction of world trade center..

Though it's a little bit hard to follow and a little more technical than I wanted here is a good pick of shear and moment connections.



Moment conections 101.

Thanks Zen. I'd been wondering about those connections. They can't be more than 20 times as strong as the originals.
