It had always been taken for granted in bridge building that static (vertical) load and mass of large structures were enough to protect them against wind effects. Planners took unknowing risks when the open girders in the bridge’s sides were substituted with flat, solid girders. The planners began taking unknowing or unnecessary risks when right before its inauguration and opening, the bridge exhibited strange characteristics that were immediately noticeable. Like the slightest wind could cause the bridge to develop a pronounced longitudinal roll. As they seen that the amplitudes steadily increased, suspensions came loose , the support structures buckled, and the span began to break up which you would think would make the
