slashadmin writes "On November 7, 1940, at approximately 11:00 AM, the first Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge collapsed due to wind-induced vibrations. This topic was created to set a space to discuss how & why engineering projects fail and how to make sure similar mistakes aren't mad in the future."
