A review of scientific evidence was published April 2nd in Physics World that basically said the following:
- Three million rivets held the ship together
- Poor-quality rivets meant part of the hull that hit the iceberg was weaker than the rest of the vessel
- Weak rivets meant air compartments ruptured
This thursday marks 100 years since the sinking of the Titanic. The ship continues to be a great reminder that we cannot compromise our standards, especially when our safety is at risk. It pays to have knowledge - and quality is paramount.
