On April 14, 1912 the RMS Titanic crashed into an iceberg and sank only a few hours later, down to the bottom of the Atlantic. The Titanic was the largest steam vessel ever built and was truly a civilization in its own; due to its economic diversity and number of passengers, the Titanic was basically a floating city.

To many, the unsinkable ship was a symbol of identity and hope before it became a tragedy, influencing music and literature.
The Titanic received 6 iceberg warnings. Although they ignored the warnings, in the movie Titanic, the iceberg caused the ship to sink.

Beyond that, the 46, 328-ton liner—whose 882 feet 9 inch length, the New York Times calculated, was the equivalent of more than four city blocks—also represented the cutting edge in transportation technology and design. “She was the latest thing in the art of shipbuilding,” White Star chairman and managing director J.

And the most important reasons of this is that the hull steel and the wrought iron rivets failed because of brittle fracture. As we know, there are three points to make the brittle fracture occurs without prior plastic deformation, they are low temperature, high impact loading, and high Sulphur content. So, when we choose the steel for the hull, especially when we know the ship will drive in a cold weather, it should be able to bear those problems. Titanic has sixteen major watertight compartments with the sealing off the compartments.
