Re: AP: Wash. State bridge

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi Thor,

The surface paint (gray or silver ) could flake out of course in areas of high strain, but, also in areas that had shock waves. Since this bridge fell down at the instant of impact with the water, shock waves must have gone through the structure and at the points of impacts such shock waves could have caused such flaking of brittle paint layer, not that I can say at this point if they did.

On second thought ... has the gray flaked off in high-stress areas?
