Some journal papers about the WTC on 9/11

Following are some journal papers about the WTC on 9/11 by structural engineers, fire safety engineers, and materials scientists. The list was compiled in April, 2006 by "senorpogo" at the JREF forum. His disclaimer: "In no way do I want to suggest that this list is exhaustive. Also, I have not read all these articles (I've read a few and skimmed most) so I cannot comment on their individual value. The aim is just to put together a bibliography of legitimate research."
