Overview

Over 125 years ago, barely a year and a half after the Tay Railway Bridge was built, William McGonnagal composed his poem about the Tay Bridge Disaster, the poem about Britain’s worst-ever civil engineering disaster. Over 80 people lost their lives in the fall of the Tay Bridge, but how did it happen? The accident reports say that high wind and poor construction were to blame, but Peter Lewis, an Open University engineering professor, tells the real story of how the bridge so spectacularly collapsed in December 1879.

The book reviews the evidence on the fall of the Tay rail bridge near Dundee, Scotland in 1879. It was then the longest bridge anywhere in the world, and over half-a-mile of the centre part of the structure collapsed during a storm, taking a train with it into the estuary. Many people think it was the high wind which blew the bridge over, but the book shows that it was actually the poor design and build which caused the disaster. Analysis of the excellent photographs taken at the time show how cast iron attachments failed in a chain reaction and so undermined the high girder section of the bridge, probably enhanced by metal fatigue.
