Any chance we could get a picture of that? Maybe Dennis will let us post them on the Structuralist?
I'm always interested in failures and their mechanisms. The general consensus seems to be that we so over design things that failures never occur. Having worked in a small office supporting local industrial plants. We often got called 10 years after the construction when something broke and the plant was tired of fixing it. About half my time was spent on these types of projects, so I started questioning that "failures never occur". Having now worked on the original design side, I realize what a complete lack of feedback is generated in the system. "Design" structural engineers don't have lessons learned because they rarely know when their designs failed.
