Brian, IMO, there are three reasons why structures do not fail, the first of which is the least likely. 1. The structure was properly designed *and* constructed. 2. The structure has never been subjected to the loads for which it was supposed to have been designed. 3. The inherent ability for material to redistribute loads and forces. A.
