Redundancy & Robustness - Do you have pictures?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
> Hi all,
> 
> I am looking for good pictures of steel structures displaying evidence of
> reserve strength or resilience otherwise unanticipated in design. I've
> heard many stories in dinner conversations, some after a few drinks, of
> remarkable examples. One I remember was about an old paper mill building
> so redundant, it stood operation for several years despite a column with 4
> ft of its base corrosively eaten away. Mind you, I'm not necessarily
> looking for every example to be as spectacular as that one.
> 
> If you know of a good example that fits the bill, I'd love to hear about
> it. If you have pictures or know where I can find them, that's even
> better! Please share any information you care to with me. My coordinates
