Modern Marvels: More Engineering Disasters DVD Features
Some are the result of unforeseeable factors, natural disasters or acts of God. But far more are caused by man, either through poor planning, negligence or innovative strategies that do not work.
MODERN MARVELSTM pores through the rubble of some of the most notable disasters looking for clues as to what happened. Often, the stories point to one tiny mistake that, unchecked, snowballed into a force that could not be stopped. Experts reveal how easy it is for this to happen, particularly when all the engineering computations involved in a new structure were done without the aid of a computer. But then we'll see how other incidents were caused by arrogance, ego and plain incompetence. Dramatic footage and photos capture many of these ENGINEERING DISASTERS as they happened (or immediately after), and engineers detail the changes that these accidents have spurred.
Join us for a fascinating look at the failures that male up a vital--if somewhat embarrassing--chapter in the history of engineering.
