Title: Resonance Phenomenon Of Tacoma Narrows Bridge
Length: 5 pages (1375 Words)
Style: Havard



After its completion in July 1940, Tacoma Narrows Bridge was the third longest suspension bridge in the world with regards to span the length beaten only by the Golden Gate and George Washington bridges, all situated in the United States ( library 1). The bridge, however, was notorious for its vertically winding movements whenever there were slight gushes of wind that gave its nickname the ‘Galloping Gertie’. It is worth noting that these motions were apparent during its completion and opened to the public. The bridges winding motions persisted and the bridge finally gave in five months after its completion during a 40 mile/hour wind draught (Hobbs, 2006, p. 29). Due to its engagement in the Second World War, the US government was not keen to its immediate reconstruction with most of government funds directed to the military conflict.
