Great Engineering Fails
From the Series Searchlight Books ™ — Celebrating Failure
Ships, bridges, and tall buildings are marvels of engineering. They are designed to be strong and safe. But even state-of-the-art designs don’t always hold up in the real world. Learn about the biggest engineering goofs throughout history—from bridges that collapsed to ships that sank. Discover how engineering mistakes have also led to improvements, such as stricter building regulations and the use of sturdier materials.
