Failed Technology - True Stories of Technological Disasters

failed technology Failed Technology: True Stories of Technological Disasters
Fran Locher Freiman & Neil Schlager

Failed Technology: True Stories of Technological Disasters focuses on 44 unpleasant surprises of the twentieth century in this two-volume set. The failed technologies span several fields:

  • Ships and Submarines
  • Airships, Aircraft, and Spacecraft
  • Automobiles
  • Dams and Bridges
  • Buildings and Other Structures
  • Nuclear Plants
  • Chemical and Environmental Disasters
  • Medical Disasters
The catastrophes highlighted in Failed Technologies resulted from poor design, planning, testing, or construction--not from purely natural disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes nor deliberate human actions such as terrorist bombings. Other disasters are included because of the media coverage they received and because of their impact on public opinion. Many of the failures are well known. But even when they are not dramatic or close to home, they reveal how technology has gone wrong.

The entries in Failed Technologies have a commmon format. Each contains major sections in the following pattern:

  • Background
  • Details of the Disaster
  • Impact
  • Where to Learn More
