Major Structures and Failures
A showcase of some of the wonderful things designed by a structural engineer:
Clifton suspension bridge across the gorge of
Container crane, Port of Richmond
World Trade Center in all its glory.
Space Needle. Built for the Seattle World
Structural engineering has had a few failures too. The first things that come to our mind are the buildings in earthquake but there are quite a few historic collapses which have occurred due to human error. Being a man we are all prone to errors but Structural Engineers have learnt a lot through the failures and have developed several criteria to help them better design the projects.
