I spotted this one last week, but a) I didn't know this thread existed and b) I didn't have my mobile with me to take the picture. So, here goes :

NB: Plate numbers in France are most generally made of 4 numbers, 2 letters and then 2 numbers for the d├ępartement. Sometimes, there are 3 letters, and sometimes there are 3 numbers in the first series. Very rarely, there are 2 numbers only in the first series. Sooo, honestly, what were the odds?!? smiley - magic

I was doing a bit of on-line research for a class on Materials, for my new job as an Instruments & Controls Technician at our power plant. We were discussing stress, strain, fatigue failure, fractures, and embrittlement. There was a memory of some video footage (black & white) fluttering across the projection screen of my mind's eye that prompted the search. The info I found was about bridge "oscillation", with the most notable incident (captured on 16mm film) being the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (dubbed "Galloping Gertie") in Washington state, USA. In the treatise by Tom Irvine (see link below), under FAILURE, the critical windspeed when the bridge began to twist and buck was...42mph.
[Okay, if you measure it in Kph, it doesn't work out; but it happened in America.]
