"Engineering Disasters" waiting for trigger "Woe Man" ... Just ADD WEIGHT to "Poured" Concrete Stack
1) Cocoa Beach, Florida collapse: 23 killed during construction 2) Japan Department Store collapse: 502 killed 5 years after adding 5th floor to 4 story design. Study above two and ... 3) 9-11 was a Punch N Shere "disaster" waiting to happen. Just add a terrorist name who wants to be a martyr. If it's just another Shaw or Saddam that you're all done using, so much the better. Wachovia Bank Bldg downtown Jacksonville, Florida is the first such design of it's kind. 50 pounds of rebar supports more than 3,000 pounds of concrete floor weight. Add office furniture and air conditioners and now what are you asking of that "50 pound" disaster waiting to happen? It was PNAC who said before 9-11, "What we need is another Pearl Harbor."
