Bridge Engineering Visualization
Ray Harryhausen passed away. Always loved his films.
David sent me a link to the busted bolted on the Bay Bridge, oops! (Thanks David!)
Bay Bridge big bolts busting badly – say that five times..
At least 30 of the giant bolts that hold together the new, $6.4 billion eastern span of the Bay Bridge have snapped.
Toll Bridge Program Manager Tony Anziano said engineers are “pretty confident” the problem with the bolts is not a design issue or a construction problem but related to the quality of the steel bolts themselves.
Ya know going off subject here, why is a toll road an acceptable way to fund a project, where the people who are using the structure are paying for it. But for accelerated bridges the users of the bridge are given fast construction so they are not inconvenienced? Meaning you and I pay to help out local users of a structure?
I hate toll roads but I also feel a little inconvenience now is the price you pay for lots of convenience in the future.
Do you ever surf Monster.com after a difficult week…..
I saw this article, Beware of Back-Stabbing Coworkers.
Think you’ve been stabbed in the back at work? If so, you’re not alone.
In a 2008 national survey by The Creative Group, half of advertising and marketing executives responded that a current or former colleague had tried to make them look bad on the job.
In addition, professionals of all types say they had suffered from sabotage on the job. In an online poll asking, “Are you aware of a coworker trying to make you look bad or sabotage your work in the last year?” nearly three-quarters said yes.
