2.2. Steel Suspension Bridges Wrought iron suspension bridges consisted of multiple iron links with a minimal strength of 8000psi. With the introduction of the new high strength steel cables long spans with nominal yielding of 85 000 psi could be made possible.
This temple was the largest temple in Ancient Rome, and was dedicated to the goddess Venus Felix, known as the Bringer of Good Fortune, and Roma Aeterna, Eternal Rome. Hadrian’s design was finalized in 121 when construction began, and he introduced it to Rome in 135.

His town plan was a beautiful and spacious grid of two miles by one mile, that will completely fill up the land between the Philadelphia’s two rivers.

It also covered about 14.3 million square miles, about a quarter of the Earth 's total land area" (N.W.E, p. 1). This evidence really puts it into perspective how massive the British Empire really was. An empire that large in scale must have made a great impact on history. This paper will be generally centered around the impact and influence they had on history. One interesting thing that needs to be discussed is how the British empire acquired the phrase "The empire on which the sun never sets" to be used to describe them.

1.0.0 INTRODUTION The Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao Bridge (HZMB) will be one of the longest cross-boundary seas crossing road infrastructure in the world providing a direct land transport connection between two shores of the Pearl River Delta, linking Hong Kong in the east to Macao and Zhuhai in the west. It is an essential transport construction project. This project is expected to cost US$10.6 billion (HK$83 billion). With its length; it would become one of the landmarks within the area. The longest bridge section will be 29.6 kilometers (18.4 mi) long and will
