This post is so old by now, who knows who will read it :)

I think ill have to read the book. Ill pick it up during my summer vacation.

Easy answers to the mistakes the engineers made can be:
- Lack of information given.
- Change of the use of the given structure.
- Unwillingnes from the people who ordered the product, to change the design after having schematics delivered.
- Poor engineering.

In my daily life Im forced to make decisions that I know arent perfect, because otherwise the design will be changed countless times and I would spend weeks catching up. This is often not because I make mistakes, but because changes are made, after the architectural design was supposed to be finished. Its a game of cat and mouse where money plays a huge role. And its understandable that the users of the final product dont see or understand the process behind it. It sure is easy to just blame the engineer.

Essersmith-"I would characterize Grendel as a trollish creature at the very least."

Some people would, but I preffer the character from this work, which is a different take on the classic Beowulf.:


Over the years, chemical lab tech to Research Chemist in the textile, petroleum, polymers & wastewater industries (with a little work with radioactive materials thrown in). Currently overseeing material shipments of a global chemical industry.

Whereas you see the final work of architects and expect mistakes, working in the manufacturing and chemical business for decades I see the final work of engineers, and have to try and work around the mistakes they designed into the systems.

I believe your reading comprehension is in question now. You clearly didnt read what i said. I didnt ACCUSE you. You stated it pretty blatantly, but we already adressed the disagreement in deriving the content.

I would characterize Grendel as a trollish creature at the very least.

Your examples of poor engineers sadly show a bad image of us. But the same examples can be found on any given field. In my line of work, its generally accepted that Architects are idiots who have no sense of reality. I know this is wrong but I approach any drawing by an architect to be riddled with mistakes, and its my job to make sense of it and make it possible.
Im curious, what is your field of work?

Essersmith-"I assume your theory is based on talking to actual engineers and getting to actually know them?"

Yes, direct interaction with them and their designs.

I knew one that designed and built a loading rack for tank truck..without bothering to find out how tall a tank truck is. Beautiful loading rack..just couldn't pull a truck under it.

I also knew another that couldn`t figure out, through the process of elimination, which way to turn the lug-nuts on his car to get a flat tire off.

I know quite a few good engineers. Unfortunately I know MANY more engineers than I know good engineers.
