An enginerd speculates on the FIU bridge collapse

I completely realize that actual failure investigation and analysis to pin down exact failure sequences is not something that is done in a weekend. As an avid reader of NTSB reports on stuff that happened years ago, those things are awesome.

This, however, is an internet discussion forum, and not a thumb-twiddling emporium, so here we are.

I found this video interesting. If you are familiar with the background, you might skip to closer to the end.



I figured this discussion needed a YouTube video with red circles on pictures. That's how you can always tell the good ones.

6. "chinesium"



I just learned something new and important. There's language for everything!

I suspected a metal failure immediate, but we'll see.

Those are my new words.

9. I'm amazed he doesn't realize how much profanity detracts from message

It was difficult to take him seriously given the unnecessary language. He mentions similar complaints early in the video, but keeps going on the same lines.

Sorry, as a handicapper I have to dismiss someone like this. I stopped watching. My long held belief is that people who default to profanity as a crutch are lesser caliber overall.

There will be someone else who will provide a far superior analysis and presentation very soon.
