"The Smolensk Crash Was No Accident!"

Tomasz Sakiewicz, Editor-In-Chief of Poland's "Gazeta Polska"

"Amidst many existing theories, a frightening picture emerges. The facts [leading to my conclusions] are becoming more, and more persuasive, and neither Madam [Tatiana] Anodina's [Director, Interstate Aviation Committee (Russian Federation)] propaganda, nor the incoherent ramblings in [Minister Jerzy] 'Miller’s Report', will suffice any longer. After a year-and-a-half-long investigation, I became convinced that the Smolensk crash was no accident ..."

Gaping holes In Russia's Polish air crash report: "We must find out whether the West has once again been party to another Big Lie out of Moscow"

Diana West, "Washington Examiner" about Polish plane crash investigation ...

"In 1952, Congress investigated the Katyn Forest Massacre and proved Soviet guilt; in 2010 and 2011, there were calls in Congress for an independent investigation into the Smolensk crash. Such an investigation is urgently required in 2012, and not only to solve the mystery of a vexing crash." Diana West, Washington Examiner

Diana West writes a weekly column that appears in about 120 newspapers, including the Washington Examiner on Sundays. Her work has appeared in many publications including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Times, The New Criterion, The Public interest, The Weekly Standard, In Character, and The Washington Post Magazine, and her fiction has appeared in the Atlantic Monthly. She has made numerous television appearances as a CNN contributor to "Lou Dobbs Tonight" and "Lou Dobbs This Week." She is now at work on her second book for St Martin's Press, The Hollow Center.

The Official Polish & Russian Smolensk Crash Reports Under Scientific Scrutiny of Dr. Kaziemierz Nowaczyk, PhD:

Author: Kazimierz Nowaczyk, Ph.D.

University of Maryland

Summary:

The main causes of the [Polish Government Tupolev Tu-154M] crash were two explosions taking place just before landing.

One of them impacted the left wing near its mid-point and caused an extensive damage, effectively breaking the wing in two. The other, inside the fuselage, caused an profound damage and dismemberment of the latter, as well as loosening the connection of the left wing and fuselage. The landing in a woody area, no matter how unfortunate and at what angle, was incapable of causing the documented fragmentation of the structure.

The angle-of-attack values are taken from a Russian and a Polish recorder, respectively. Both devices are merely data recorders and not measurement devices

Conclusions:

The final reports of both MAK and Polish Air Incident Investigation Committee do not include any information as to the methodology of the analysis or provide any data which would make the analysis replicable.

Data recovered from some of the aircraft’s recording devices have been subject to arbitrary alterations and some of the data (FMS and TAWS logs) have not been included in the analysis.

Data Extraction conclusion:

The amount of raw binary data that was captured electronically is very large. UASC software engineering can convert additional parameters to human-readable format if they are needed for the investigation.

Horizontal Plane Trajectory Near the Birch Tree

Horizontal Plane Trajectory Near the Birch Tree: According to TAWS #37 and #38 logs, the aircraft did not change its magnetic course 140 meters past the birch tree, which is inconsistent with information in both MAK and KBWL reports.

Uncontrolled Roll to the Left

Are flight parameters reported by MAK as evidence of an uncontrolled roll to the left consistent with what we know about the aerodynamics of this particular type of aircraft?

Taking into account the effects of the aircraft rolling to the left as well as losing a considerable amount of airfoil surface, we can conclude that the critical angle of attack would have been exceeded one second after left wing’s impacting the birch tree.

The behavior of the aircraft after losing part of the wing has also been analyzed by a team of researchers lead by prof. Brawn of the University of Akron.

As the aircraft loses part of its left wing, drag works to counteract roll with the force equivalent to air moving at 5 meters per second, applied to the top of the right wing and to the bottom of the left wing.

The left wing moves downwards with an initial acceleration of -23.9, which then decreases to -2.5 deg/s2 because of drag induced by the rolling motion   The left wing moves downwards with an initial acceleration of -23.9, which then decreases to -2.5 deg/s2 because of drag induced by the rolling motion

Conclusions

1. The horizontal plane trajectory of Tu-154M, reconstructed from TAWS alert logs, does not change 140 meters after the birch tree. Impacting the tree resulting in separation of part of the wing and an uncommanded roll would also have to result in altering the aircraft’s horizontal plane trajectory. Such change in trajectory is inconsistent with TAWS Alert Log #38

2. Flight parameters reported by MAK and KBWL describe a roll to the left event which is inconsistent with technical accounts of aerodynamic properties if this type of aircraft.

3. If Tu-154M 101 had lost part of its left wing on impact with the tree, it would have to roll to the left, pitch downwards, and impact the ground no later than one second after hitting the tree. 21

The blue line does not contain any explicit information from TAWS #38 or any of the FMS logs. We do see that the blue and purple lines cross at one point. All TAWS and FMS logs were known to both MAK and KBWL very early into their investigations.

Dr Gregory SZULADZINSKI received his Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Warsaw University of Technology in 1965 and Doctoral Degree in Structural Mechanics from University of Southern California in 1973. From 1981 until present, he has been working in Australia in the fields of aerospace, railway, power, offshore, automotive and process industries, as well as in rock mechanics, underground blasting and military applications. Especially since the early 90’ties he has been doing computer simulations of such violent phenomena as rock breaking with the use of explosives, fragmentation of metallic objects, shock damage to buildings, structural collapse, fluid-structure interaction, blast protection and aircraft impact protection. He has done a number of state-of-the-art studies showing explicit fragmentation of structures and other objects. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Engineers Australia, member of its Structural and Mechanical College, a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The loss of the wing’s leading edge near the fuselage and the entire left-most part of the wing had two aerodynamic effects: loss of lift on the left side and increase of drag. The first effect induces roll to the left, while the second one induces a change in magnetic heading.

Abstract

We will show how a large scale simulation approach, that has proven successful in researching dynamics of high-energy impact in engineering, can be used to validate results of forensic investigations of air traffic accidents. In our case study involving the tragic April 2010 crash of Polish Air Force One in Russia, we use the finite element methodology to enable comprehensive high fidelity simulations of certain events that reportedly might have occurred during the crash. Using only publicly available data as inputs, we analyze physics of a presumed collision of a wing of the aircraft and a birch tree, and look into various scenarios of structural disintegration. Curiously, our results expose infeasibility of many findings published in the official investigation reports. The presentation will be preceded by a short introduction to the historical and political context of the crash. We argue for and emphasize the benefits of using a scientific method to explain complex events taking place in the physical world.
