with heat transfer, which is the more important concept. It doesn't matter what the point temperatures reaches if enough hot-burning fuels are not present to raise the temperature of the entire structure sufficiently. A blow torch reaches 5,000F. Try taking down a skyscraper with it.
You claim there was sufficient fuel but provide no calculations. The fuel which was present was spec fire retardant, hardly burned as hot as coal or coke under forced oxygen. The idea that a few floors of normal office fires which were already going out initiated a global collapse is ludicrous. A firefighter on the 78th floor of the South Tower reported only "isolated pockets" which could be "knocked down with 2 lines" (hoses.) Jet fuel is only kerosene. There was nothing extraordinary about these fires.
The idea that a tall "gash" in the building can provide a convection current which duplicates a mechanically forced oxygen supply is laughable. Steel makers would save a whole lot of money just punching a hole in their blast furnaces rather than spending all that energy on pumping air at pressure.
I don't know about your frying pans, but mine have hard plastic handles. If your handles were extensions of the steel you would burn yourself.
This is science club. Anyone can make up any kind of cartoonish narrative. Please show your calculations if you expect to be taken seriously.
