Seminar - Special Video Presentation - Engineering Activities after the Collapse of the World Trade Centre
Wednesday, May 18, 2005, 1.10 - 1.50 pm
Civil Engineering Lecture Room 1
This video outlines the engineering involved in the daunting task of cleaning up the 16-acre disaster site after September 11th. Footage shows every aspect of the recovery work at Ground Zero, following US Army robots as they search for human remains wreckage and revealing how 2 million tons of debris were removed. Engineers detail what they discovered in their "autopsy" of the buildings, and we'll see how the disaster site was been transformed into sacred ground as the recovery work progressed.
