Engineering Case Studies Online

engineering case studies online

Engineering Case Studies Online is an innovative new resource that focuses on the analysis of engineering failures. It covers more than 50 of the most frequently taught case studies including:

  • Air France Flight 4590
  • The Big Dig
  • Deepwater Horizon oil rig
  • Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant
  • ... and more

Each case includes a collection of materials that provide in-depth analysis of the disasters including feature-length video documentaries, relevant books explaining key engineering concepts and issues, simulations, primary footage of accidents, engineering ethics, and other materials not normally found in the scholarly literature.

Materials come from a variety of reliable content partners including the BBC, the Digital Rights Group, Princeton University Press, and the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Find out more about Engineering Case Studies Online with Alexander Street Press. UC Berkeley users can access the product at Engineering Case Studies Online.
