Incorrect. If there weren’t explosives involved there would have been far more large pieces. Instead almost every square inch was turned to dust. Impossible without an accelerant

That's pushing it, concrete smacking into it self at high speeds will turn it into dust. Just look at other controlled demos when they use explosives to just take out lower supports.

Actually, it's the complete opposite. Explosives are pretty bad at pulverizing concrete. This goes into more detail than you'd ever want and at the end goes into what would the effects be if explosives were used instead:

You can skip the the conclusion at the end if you don't want to dig through all the explanation and math.
