06 - About the dark side of bridge engineering

As I promised you – few decades ago – in this post I'm going to show you some examples of sad accidents involving bridges. I collected some data from the news about bridge collapses during the year of 2016. I'm sure I cannot present here an exhaustive list – I'll only talk about 18 cases in the following –, so please feel free to share in a comment if you know other accidents that I miss to report.

05 - Thoughts about research and publication

I had planned to write a post about 'bridge collapses in 2016' since last October, but somehow I never found the time to put together the data I had collected. Anyway, I hope that in the near future you can also read about that topic in this blog, but today there is something else I want to talk about. I have some questions in my mind that I've been trying to answer... So basically in this post I'm just going to think loudly. Meaning that there will be more questions than answers :)
