Title: RE: French Airport Roof collapse

Ron,

Thanks for finding the stuff.

Your link did not work; this one, however, did:

Amazing - the collapse of a huge concrete structure was apparently caused by the punching shear from a strut supporting a relatively light roof.  They are also talking about time-related deterioration - how could that happen in 11 months?

This is the first I've heard about this since the collapse.
