I have been trying for quite sometime to establish a time-line when the recovery workers begun cutting columns, which would be assumed even by me to be very quickly while looking for survivors.
There is to much confusion without a proper timeline during the search and recovery process. To know what happened when, maybe someday the dots can be connected.

this pic shows a time line .
it was taken min. after the colapse .
and the molten metal should have solidifed, unless a chemical reaction was used to generate the heat.
steel can only stay molten if heat is beeing applyed .
and lying on a big pile of rubble next to some other huge beams , with the capability to absorb great amount of heat from their realitive suroundins.
thier should be no i mean no molten steel of anykind that day, given all the cumbustable items .
Btu is BTU and ever item known to man has a BTU factor.
no flame recorded or any item burning that day could have maintained 2800 f , much less stay that temp for long enough to have made a huge pile of molten steel.
the energy to make that pile of molten steel is huge, dont forget molten steel still wieghs the same as its solid state.
so that pile is tons in wieght those beams next to it are huge and weigh around 20,000 pounds .
this pic shows metric tons of molten steel . look at the scale of the building and the size of the dripping steel
same with this one metric tons of dripping steel
we should see nothing of this in any building fire ever, unless somthing hotter then 2800f and jsut about any build has nothing in it that reaches much hotter then 1800 f and exspecialy not beeing a controlled burn.
the hottest controlled burn in most builds would be gas stoves and ovens , and furnaces and boilers. and none can even remotely reach 2800 f.
the hottest temp is a 1000 f cooler then molten steel temp .
there just should not have been any molten steel that day under the proposed conditions.
all these photos shows a timeline where some kind of chemical reaction going on
