To Forgive Design

To Forgive Design characters Í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB O imagine the possibility of failure is the most profound mistake engineers can make Software developers realized this early on and looked outside their young field to structural engineering as they sought a historical perspective to help them identify their own potential mistakes By explaining the interconnectedness of technology and culture and the dangers that can emerge from complexity Petroski demonstrates that we would all do well to follow their le I like it because it is a non fiction book I appreciate the thorough explanations about metal fatigue testing strength of building materials and intended planned failure That was something I never thought of For instance crackers stamps and chocolate bars are perforated to break easily when a certain force is applied I had not previously thought of this concept A sprinkling system in case of fire has a thermo sensitive device that breaks when the air around it reaches the design activation temperature of the individual sprinkler Then the water starts flowing That is the intended design failure of the design Sometimes a component must fail in order for the larger system to succeed I don t particularly LIKE the narrator but I don t hate him either He is a bit annoying I noticed in Henry s last book To Engineer is Human that there is a sort of rivalry between physicists and engineers I have actually seen something similar when my old Science Methods teacher at the U had some disdain for applied science This does not indicate that the university s proud physicists have any less of a sense universality of purpose or of superiority over their engineer colleagues than physicists everywhere This line from the book says it all Reading about the horrible Challenger and Columbus failures the bridge disasters etc was fascinating Getting to the root of the problem understanding how to fix it for next time that s so important It reuires real investment of time as well as open minds There are so many variables around a plan crash a bridge collapse a chemical spill one must be open to learning from it and not decide what happened before investigating One of my favorite premises from the book is about the Titanic The Titanic was the most spectacular the best ship of its time If it had not hit an iceberg how many other ships would have been made to the same specifications before another hit an iceberg or a dock or another ship and exposed the weak area in the design Awesome book I will be reading by this author Beyond the Pale university s proud physicists have any less of a sense The Black Ice Score (Parker, universality of purpose or of superiority over their engineer colleagues than physicists everywhere This line from the book says it all Reading about the horrible Challenger and Columbus failures the bridge disasters etc was fascinating Getting to the root of the problem The Black Painting understanding how to fix it for next time that s so important It reuires real investment of time as well as open minds There are so many variables around a plan crash a bridge collapse a chemical spill one must be open to learning from it and not decide what happened before investigating One of my favorite premises from the book is about the Titanic The Titanic was the most spectacular the best ship of its time If it had not hit an iceberg how many other ships would have been made to the same specifications before another hit an iceberg or a dock or another ship and exposed the weak area in the design Awesome book I will be reading by this author
