The transition from the engineering student's classroom to the professional engineer's office presents a problem which is currently the subject of much attention. In many schools there is little opportunity for the engineer to learn to write and speak clearly and effectively on technical subjects.

Engineering disasters that teach how a small mistake can lead to catastrophic events. It was a big disaster for them, and they thought they had learned their lesson. So, they decided to build the bridge again. The second time, they used lower chords for the Cantilevers, and they were much stronger than before.

Engineering Disasters always tell us one thing very clearly that human technology is not perfect, as yet. We always plan and safeguard our plans by adopting hi-tech security and risk management measures, yet we fail. Minneapolis Bridge failure, Chernobyl Disaster, and St. Francis Bridge failure are few incidences where engineering and technology have failed miserably. Engineering disasters occur because of flaws in design, human error, and certain uncontrollable situations. The Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred because of deficiencies in the design and not sticking to guidelines.

In this practical and highly topical book, the author provides thoroughly researched accounts of well-known disasters and failures worldwide. Historical events such as the Hindenburg Disaster and Chernobyl are covered, as well as more recent occurrences, such as the World Trade Center and Columbia Space Shuttle disasters. The author provides valuable interpretive sections, revealing the lessons to be learned in each case. Examples are included from a wide range of industries, as well as background information and views from several known experts in the field. The author discusses the common threads and conclusions from accident investigations and offers excellent references for further study. @By: Don Lawson
