Unformatted text preview: NAME C gfiggmggyfl ' ,0] Engineer A, a structural designer of a large commercial building, incorporates new and onative design concepts. After construction is complete and the building is occupied, he finds _ an omission in his calculations that could result in its collapse under severe, but not unusual wind 5/ conditions. The collapse would not only . jeopardize the occupants and their immediate surroundings but could possibly cause a "domino" effect threatening a much larger area. Engineer A advises the architect and client of the problem. After consultation with the architect, the client, and the city engineer, all agree upon remedial construction, which can be accomplished over the next few months. A storm monitoring system and contingency evacuation plan for the building and surrounding neighborhood are developed for the time before construction is complete. Both the client and architect strongly agree that the situation should be kept secret, with construction accomplished during the evening hours when the building is unoccupied. Engineer A is confidant that the construction will completely rectify any structural concerns and that the evacuation plan has a reasonable chance of success. Engineer B, the city engineer, has concern for the public, especially the office workers in the building and their right to know, but the architect and the client maintain that right is superseded by the consequences of a possible public panic resulting from any notification.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
