You ought to consider the element of sheer in the collapse.

Even a piece of dry mud, incredibly weak, when subjected to a vertical force will simply sheer out sideways. Its very hard, almost impossible, for something even as weak as dry clay soil to collapse to dust. Here you have a tall building that is supposed to pancake on itself to dust, but this is not reasonable since the path of least resistance in the collapse is clearly sideways.

at some point in the 100 stories the path of least resistance was out to the side

even if just one joist on one side of one of the floors had collapsed a little slower, then you would have had an immediate sheer out to the side

nothing collapses on its self except black holes

a normal failure under the laws of planet earth involes a sheer component and the guys that work in controlled demolition are experts at avoiding this by timing the collapse perfectly

if their charges are not timed right, then there will of course be sheer
