Next Episode of Engineering Catastrophes is
Engineering Catastrophes will profile, investigate, analyze, and find solutions for the world's most unbelievable engineering gaffes. From the hilarious to the mind-boggling, from the deadly to the bank-busting, this series showcases some of the most outrageous structural disasters and the genius resolutions to get things back on track. Blunders explored this season include a waterfront building in England that has created a wind tunnel so strong, pedestrians have been blown over; the Carrier Dome in snowy Syracuse that has a soft top roof requiring workers to climb atop with hot water hoses to prevent collapse every time snow falls; a Brazilian highway that is so close to tall buildings that neighborhood residents are concerned about hearing loss.
When demolitions don't go as planned, engineers race for cutting-edge solutions to bring down buildings that refuse to fall, and at the world-renowned Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan, experts try to succeed when the world's most powerful explosives fail.
When an oil rig in Louisiana drills into something unexpected, a cataclysmic event is unleashed, causing a lake to suddenly disappear; experts use the latest science to investigate what went wrong and how it can be fixed.
When a brand-new bridge suddenly collapses in Miami, several die in a horrifying calamity; experts use the latest science to investigate what went wrong and how an innovative bridge-building technique could be to blame.
When a dam breaks during routine maintenance, engineers fear a catastrophic flood; experts use the latest science to investigate what went wrong and how a simple miscalculation could be to blame.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
But don't worry - it can happen to the best of us,
- and it just happened to you.
