In this case, if they built the Titanic 's hull and rivets out of a stronger metal, many lives might have been saved. Having the stronger metal would have caused less severe damage to the side of the ship. Meaning less water coming in and it would have gave more time for rescue ships to get there. And also, there was a shortage of rivets and expert riveters to hold the hull together. From using weak metals and having shortages, the metal shattered when it hit the iceberg, not bent.
RMS Titanic, the largest maritime disaster, was known as the “Unsinkable Ship”. Titanic was designed as the grandest ship in the history, 883 feet long, weigh 57,000 tons, carries 3,500 people, and has 2 engines (The size of 2 story house). On April 10th 1912, was Titanic’s maiden voyage, sets sail from Southampton. Titanic sailed from Southampton arriving at Cherbourg, France, then to Queenstown, Ireland, heading to New York on April 11th, 1912 - 11.30. Titanic headed to New York with a total of 2228 people on board, including the crew.
In Lloyd’s Registers, the Sea Horse was categorised as a ship, which at that time referred to all first rank sailing vessels with a bowsprit and three or more square rigged masts. She was double boarded, had a burden of 285 tons, with a draught of 14 feet and was armed with sixteen 9 pounder cannon and two 6 pounder carronades. She was classed as A1, meaning a first class ship built with first class materials. On 3 June 1782 the Sea Horse set sail for Hudson Bay on her maiden voyage, under the command of John Richards. She sailed in convoy with two other company ships,
Despite this, Titanic sailed on the scheduled date, as coal was transferred from other vessels including Olympic. The wealthiest people of the time booked a passage aboard Titanic, travelling in First Class. Among them were the American millionaire John Jacob Astor IV and his wife Madeleine Force Astor, industrialist Benjamin Guggenheim, Macy 's owner Isidor Straus and his wife Ida, Denver millionairess Margaret "Molly" Brown, Sir Cosmo Duff Gordon and his wife, couturière Lucy (Lady Duff-Gordon), cricketer and businessman John Borland Thayer with his wife Marian together with their son Jack, the Countess of Rothes, author and socialite Helen Churchill Candee, journalist and social reformer William Thomas Stead, author Jacques Futrelle with his wife May, and silent film actress Dorothy Gibson, among others.40 Titanic 's owner J. P. Morgan was scheduled to travel on the maiden voyage, but cancelled at the last minute. Also aboard the ship were the White Star Line 's managing director J. Bruce Ismay and Titanic 's designer Thomas Andrews, they were there to observe any problems and assess the general
The Captain said “The big icebergs that drift into warmer water melt much more rapidly under water than on the surface, and sometimes a sharp, low reef extending two or three hundred feet beneath the sea is formed. If a vessel should run on one of these reefs half her bottom might be torn away.” The number of compartments that were allowed to be flooded without running the risk of sinking was four, and when hit six compartments ended up being filled with the icy waters, so the ship was doomed to sink. Being four hundred miles from land, the passengers began a frantic search for help and hope, only coming to find a limited amount of life boats and icy waters climbing the once magnificent vessel. The third class citizens were left on their own once the boat broke, due to their living quarters being at the lower end of the ship and since there was few lifeboats, they were reserved for women and children, then upper class men. At this time the water temperature was only 28°F, leaving a life expectancy of only fifteen to forty five minutes for those who weren’t lucky enough to board a lifeboat.
The report produced by the investigative board stated that the principal structural issues were that the bridge lacked the stiffness and sturdiness to resist the fluctuating wind conditions of the area. Furthermore, the solid girders, unlike a truss that would have let the wind through, acted as a kind of sail, exaggerating the effect of the wind that had originally been considered insignificant. The specific failure that began the collapse of the bridge occurred when one of the two main cable bands slipped out of position, allowing the bridge to twist, which resulted in the snapping of the suspension cables (University of Washington Libraries,
At a height of 269m at it tip, the tower stretches up. Sway movement of the tower during winds reaching 190km per hour are 86cm at the top, but due to structural techniques use by taking the foundation down 42m reduces sway movement. Visitors reached the top via 3 high speed lifts shooting up at 6m per second. It was open to the public in its early years and was popular local and tourist attraction. The structure consists of 6 floors at the top of the tower.
At low power, the reactor is difficult to control. This very unsafe feature and characteristic of RBMK design. The Chernobyl blast occurs during a check at low power, which is at a second when the reactor was unstable. In the RBMK reactor the neutron mediator consists of 600 tonnes of graphite. It's not so much a design error but improper assets of that material.RBMK reactors contain neither a system to pass through a filter exhaust gases nor a containment

Delhi Metro have very large network so that it was on 15 rank in the world in terms of length and it was also ranked twelveth in terms of huge number of stations. This metro system is member of a group called Nova Group of Metros. Delhi Metro is ranked third in terms of public transport in India (after the Kolkata Metro and Chennai MRTS) and first latest fast transport system. Till the month of june of 2015, the rail system network have five colour-coded regular lines (Red,
