Why the Florida International University Bridge Collapsed

Online webinar

Presented by Dr Sean Brady

In the early afternoon of 15 March 2018, a partially constructed pedestrian bridge at the Florida International University collapsed. It fell 5.6 m to the highway below and crushed or partially crushed 8 vehicles. Five vehicle occupants died, as well as one worker who was on the bridge at the time of the failure.

This is the story of how all the protections we erect as an engineering and construction profession can be eroded, ignored and dismissed - the story of what happens when we forget why these protections were put there in the first place.
