Why do bridges fail? Why did concrete fall in Boston’s Big Dig? Why did the levees give in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina?
Distinguished engineer and author Henry Petroski has made a career of examining failure and success in design and will discuss those explorations in a talk at the Writers House at Merrimack College at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 2. The event, which is free and open to the public, will include a Q&A and reception.
