Sampoong Department Store after  collapse -June 29 th 1995 -501 people  killed -937 people  injured -$216 million  in property  damage

Case Recap (Pre Collapse) Sampoong Department Store design changed;  fifth  floor added for restaurants and air conditioning units  moved to roof. Increased load combined with vibrations from air  conditioners caused cracks to propagate through the  structure. Civil engineers stated collapse was imminent but this  warning was ignored. Air conditioners crashing through roof caused the main  columns to collapse the entire wing within 30 seconds.

    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.
