The Science of A Bridge CollapseBook - 2015
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Fascinating facts, photos and graphics fill this book, which introduces and explains – using easy-to-understand language – what happens when a bridge collapses.
In the past, some of these catastrophes have been due to external forces (eg. floods, earthquakes), but some have been caused by design or construction error.
What scientific principles are used in designing and building a bridge? Equally as interesting: what have engineers and scientists learned from past bridge collapses to improve bridge safety?
The author, Nikole Bethea, is a licensed professional engineer who hopes, through her books, to inspire children’s interest in science and technology.
Her book is one in an engrossing new children’s series, Disaster Science, which includes such titles as The Science of a Plane Crash, The Science of a Hurricane, The Science of an Earthquake and The Science of a Volcanic Eruption.
