These engineers call them box columns and show how to cut them with thermate.
Use of Thermate explains the "Underground Fires"

One poor debunker went as far as saying that ' active dust' from the Towers somehow did what we see in the pics on judy Woods site. Can you imagine being so desperate for an excuse that ' active dust' is the only refuge for the seeker of corroboration of the official account.
In any event, your post was spot on, and well put.

My question is simply - how did that much thermite/mate get into the WTC in the alleged first place?

Who and how was it determined that the particular piece of steel came from below the WTC?
How did you determine that there are no stress factures? Looking at the photo?
It is much more difficult to tell if melting has occured in the grain boundary regions in this steel as was observed in the A36 steel in the WTC 7. The severe corrosion and subsequent erosion of Samples 1 and 2 are a very unusual event. No clear explanation for the source of the sulfur has been identified. The rate of corrosion is also unknown. It is possible that this is the result of long-term heating in the ground following the collapse of the buildings. It is also possible that the phenomenon started prior to collapse and accelerated the weakening of the steel structure.
