World's largest freestanding cylindrical aquarium bursts in Berlin.
1500 tropical fish are dead.
"So the building's engineering and tank's "Safety Certificate" specific a certain ambient temperature range if water temperate is at a certain level at a certain temperature.
In this case the lobby needed to be no less than 19° to stay within specification in the "Safety Certificate".
In the building's original planning and construction the HVAC system for the lobby was tied into the water management system for the tank. It was (with the old system) actually impossible for the lobby to heat or cool itself out of spec from the tank's safety certificate.
However, starting last year the building got a new HVAC system and because the whole HVAC system was being renovated/replaced in the building, the building/hotel took the opportunity to drain the tank and perform an extended maintenance to the tank and its various sub systems.
What is to be determined is:
1) Was the new HVAC's engineering designed to incorporate the safety certificate of the tank? (If not - the building and systems engineer is at least partially at fault)
2) If the HVAC's engineering designed to incorporate the safety certificate of the tank - then was the new HVAC system properly installed (If not- the HVAC installer is at least partically at fault)
etc., etc., etc.,
At the end of the day - something like this can only happen if a lot of things that normally don't have anything to do with one another connect and go wrong.
If I had to guess - the new HVAC system wasn't properly engineered to accommodate the needs of the Tank's Safety Certificate, the Hotel acting on instructions from the City acted negligent by allowing the ambient temperature around the tank to go outside the scope of its safety certificate and the city is likely partially at fault for requiring lowering ambient temperate in the hotel lobby when a 2 million pound fish-tank that is 5 stories tall is right in from of whomever walks in.
The only real winners here are the attorneys, as always."
i couldn't even begin to imagine how anal retentive the wording in a german insurance policy must be
show the camera footage
Every. SIngle. Time
i did a calculation of volume based on the picture and discovered the tank lost 6 million liters of water. this can't be real.
Such a dumb fucking idea.
Wish it drowned all the cunts inside.
I miss the old world.
LOL GERMAN ENGINEERING
CAN'T EVEN BUILD A FISHTANK
IMAGINE IF THE ELEVATOR HAD PEOPLE IN IT AND DURING RUSH HOUR??? HUNDREDS DEAD
Was american made, mutt.
It's the GERMAN engineers who were braindead enough to replace a hard-locked HVAC system with one that could lower the lobby temperature lower to below the operating spec of the fishtank, only to then DO EXACTLY THAT
nice try, jungle moron
They needed to do it because it's too big of an expense to keep it running. It wont be rebuild.
Of course. With the price of the electricity going up like it does in Germany such cost may be prohibitive for the hotel.
So you engineer a failure, collect the check from the insurance and have a shit ton more profit.
It will never be rebuild because Germany insists on committing a suicide.
I need to rewatch that. The first MI had great aesthetics and color palettes.
>Made in America
Many such cases
you deserve to see what I posted somewhere else
draw a little garden gnome cap and the fish saying anudda shoah
Yeah, they assembled it from pieces and then joined them together. The breaking point must have been the weak seam. Just like the challenger disaster, the fuel-tank broke at the seam and their o-ring. They should have made it in one piece, somehow.
If Germans can make those huge coal-bucket machines, they can figure this one out.
There’ve been many hairline fractures from people banging on the glass last time I visited, about a year ago, and they never bothered replacing it nor are there any inspections to ensure it holds up. Since it is a cylinder with elevator in the middle, all the pressure is put on the bottom outside, where visitors can freely bang on the glass. There are various speculations about the reason, but the most likely one is that they simply should’ve replaced the glass at one point.
>from people banging on the glass
Have they blamed it on climate change yet?
What happened was the germoid garden gnomes were being very cheap with the construction and didn't want to pay for a 25m glass tube or even an complete acrylic tube, so they opted to get separate acrylic panels glued together on the outside and inside of the aquarium. Now you factor in many years over time dealing with salt water, vibration, pressure and finally the shitty acrylic panels gave up due to stress. The logistics of trying to get that into the building they just said fuck it, do it cheap and bring it all through the front door.
Remember this is a one of a kind 25m aquarium it has never been done before or tested, but now we know it can only last 19 years.
>garden gnomes: oy vey! i don't care how long it takes, just make it cheap
Not my problem
I’m not surprised at all
Recently went through Frankfurt airport
There were 3 cops checking passports of 300+ people - the booths held 10
3 lanes open for body/carryon luggage scans out of 10
This was during peak rush hour
Hundreds of ppl missed their connecting flights
& rebooking cost lufthansa an arm and two legs
TL;DR: german efficiency is as dead as death
What is the point of having one of these? Stop kidnapping animals and fish you fucking mongoloids just fucking mind your own business nature wants nothing to do with you morons
aw man there's gotta be video of that, come the fuck on...
>hans we have itch all over the tank again

Huge Berlin aquarium bursts, spilling 1,500 fish onto road
BERLIN, Dec 16
A huge aquarium in Berlin burst early on Friday, spilling 1 million litres (264,172 gallons) of water, around 1,500 exotic fish and debris onto a major road in the busy Mitte district, emergency services said.
Around 100 emergency responders rushed to the site, a leisure complex that houses a Radisson hotel and a museum as well as what Sea Life Berlin said was the world's largest freestanding cylindrical aquarium at 14 metres (46ft) in height.
The 1,500 fish from the aquarium died, said a spokesperson for Union Investment, which manages the real estate fund that owns the property.
Efforts are underway to rescue fish from several smaller tanks that were near the AquaDom and that escaped destruction but have been subjected to power cuts in the building, he said.
It was fortunate that the accident happened so early in the morning, when there was hardly anybody in the immediate vicinity, Berlin mayor Franziska Giffey was quoted as saying.
"If this hadn't happened at 5.45 am but even just one hour later, then we would probably have had terrible human loss to report."
Two people, including a hotel employee, were injured by splinters of glass.
Buses were sent to provide shelter for the hotel guests, police said, as outside temperatures in Berlin in the morning hovered around -7 degrees Celsius (19.4°F).
1 million litre volume cylinder full of water
14 metre height glass tank, heated tank?
Power cuts to the hotel—lower room temperature, especially at 5:45am?
High energy prices from the Russian oil cutoff. Tank has extra thermal stresses.
Is this another massacre that Putin is responsible for?
That Reuters new article has crappy info. Here are better specs:
Located in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Berlin-Mitte, Germany, the AquaDom is a tall, cylindrical structure of acrylic glass with a built-in, transparent elevator. Visitors can take the elevator that travels through the center of the cylinder to view various aquatic creatures.
At a height of 82 feet (25 meters) and a diameter of 36 feet (11 meters), the AquaDom is the largest, freestanding, cylindrical aquarium in the world. Since its opening in 2004, it has become the central attraction at Radisson Blu and Berlin Sea Life Center.
The aquarium is filled with over one million liters (260,000 U.S. gallons) of salt water. Weighing a total of two tons, the massive aquarium is supported by a nine-meter (30-foot) tall foundation. It cost a whopping €12.8 million ($13 million) to construct the aquarium.
The outer cylinder has 26 acrylic panels and the inside cylinder, through which the elevator moves, has 15 acrylic panels. The panels are 16 centimeters thick at the top and 22 centimeters thick at the bottom.
Expect more trouble with this building, especially concrete
>If this hadn't happened at 5.45 am but even just one hour later, then we would probably have had terrible human loss to report.
do all germans wake up at exactly the same time to go to work like good little goys?
Watching the video posted I am assuming it failed along a seam then complete catastrophic failure ensue
>German stray cats remember it as the night the fish fell from heaven
There's a lot of stupid fucks in this thread
Made in germany, guess their aquariums are as shitty as their cars.
German engineering isn't as German as it used to be.
The aquarium was made by an American company.
Became to expensive to operate, only option was to pull it.
where's the CCTV footage?
Which moron threw a ninja rock at it?
Are there any autistic engineering grads on here who can give us a rough idea on what sort of pressures the tank walls were subject to at the bottom of the tank?
Excluding the bottom part which appears to be a bar and the interior volume taken up by an elevator shaft, that's a 6 story tall tank that's about 10m in diameter filled with water. The pressure on the bottom of the tank must be ridiculous.
height: 14m (some sites say 16m)
g: 9,8 m/s2
so 1000 * 9,8 * 14 = 137200 N/m2 or 1.4kg/cm2
Dude imagine taking a bong rip from that
Here we are witnessing the fall of Rome in real time.
The "New Germans" cannot maintain what the Old Germans created. And this comes soon after the Zoo escape in Sweden where authorities had to kill the chimps due to a lack of tranquilisers. Know why? Because the "New Swedes" didn't bother to maintain their tranquiliser stock properly, unlike the Old Swedes.
We will be seeing more and more of these type of "accidents" as the degenerate "New Europeans" fail to maintain what the Old Europeans created.
NOOOO NOT THE FISH
Why didn't they flex tape the leak?
hahaha fucked one bitch in this hotel some time ago, looking at the bouncing boobs and fish in pararel is somehow cool
Nice! the aquarium finally has open borders
Just like Germany and the US
whoever designed this had the hubris of a modern engineer, it's not even a good design you have to go up several floors to enjoy it at a range of 100ft through multiple layers of glass. RIP fishies
are the fish ok?
Misunderestimating the MTTF (mean time to failure) this hard.
Be a double negatory, therefore mean that the estimate was actually correct.
Also, i don't think that word even exists you autistic fuck.
Hello zoomer newfag
>Quotes George W.
So I'm right, it is not a real word.
That’s why it’s funny, quoting retards is always funny.
>it’s not a real word
If you can read it isn’t it real? It’s powerful tard talk, but, it is not an akshhual word. Admit it, it’s family friendly fun to read and say.
Mkay got it.
>Quoting retards is the way to enlightenment
Never change bro, ygmi
Shouldn't have taken the vaxx
It's really sad. More of such things will break apart or explode due to moron foreigners and women. In the end we'll irrigate with brawndo
Imagine if this shit exploded during the day. Jesus.
Aren't we all just fish swimming in a tank, not knowing what's beyond the glass. Maybe our glass will break and in the last moment before death, incapable of imagining what is even happening, we will fall into void. Why even swim ?
germany was a mistake
>Why even swim?
It's the best we can do
This sounds like a false aquarium explosion. glowmorons did this.
CERN Opens gateway to hell.
People forget that. Its worse than my dating my last girlfriend.
>aquarium made of plastic subject to creep failure with continuous ~50psi water pressure at the bottom without any framework to dampen wall oscillations
imagine the smell
I hope they already gathered a team to investigate and find out who we should blame, is it russia, is it climate change, is it toxic masculinity ???
I think it‘s a retarded show off and inappropriate waste of resources to have an aquarium like that.
Seems alright that it got destroyed
My autism powers are not strong enough, I couldnt find the designer of the structure
I wondered if it was a woman or an immigrant
My first thought
probably to get the insurance money, it's not like any hotels have any money left after the complete disaster that are germanies corona restrictions
Plus their sushi buffet is going to be killer
imagine the smell
Benjamin Franklin will never ever be wrong, Germoid cucks are swarthy shitskins.
you aren't even anglo you filthy slavshit
They needed to use a little flex seal and it would be ok.
>still unclear what had caused the aquarium to burst
just check the security cameras ffs
>>just check the security cameras ffs
Fuck I dreamed of this as a child
Gas ran out, germanoids can't heat water, water expands because it's cold and then breaks aquarium
I Imagine the fish would die before the glass would explode maybe the aquarium breaking is just a cover for the lack of energy so they didn't have a story of having to euthanize or freeze 1500 fish
What do you mean water expands?
The media told me that if all ice bergs melt it will raise sea levels by at least 10 meters.
Technically iee expands too, so it shouldn't cause any change
Take that putler
Here's the video, looks like a movie lol.
surely theres security camera footage of it exploding, no?
I thought the same, most likely.
anon i am dead
got me good with that one
it only happened a few hours ago.
I'm sure they have other priorities at the moment than uploading CCTV footage to YouTube for your entertainment.
Like what? Is it prayer hour at the mosque again or something
>I'm sure they have other priorities at the moment than uploading CCTV footage to YouTube for your entertainment.
Why else would they install a CCTV? Same as the Russian dashcams, these things exist so we can have a good time watching them.
footage is going to be needed to determine the cause and what exactly happened, its necessary in figuring out whos to blame cus this is a huge investment that got tanked in seconds
plus why wouldnt there be cameras
nobody said there isn't CCTV cameras, you fuckwit.
do I really need to repeat myself?
they have better things to do at the moment than upload the CCTV footage to the internet for your personal benefit.
CCTV footage will be viewed by engineers, officials, hotel employees and then it might, probably after several days, make its way to journalists and then onto the internet.
I'm gonna go ahead and say they can blame the constant deterioration of society due to the universal attack on meritocracy and talent based on blatant racism against whites. Everything is run by retards now because that's what "equality" really means = skill doesn't matter, and is in fact discriminatory if one person is better than another.
Now our poor fishmoron bros have to suffer because of it.
>shooting Harambe put us on a one way path to this place
or this. i really wouldnt be surprise dif they hired some unqualified women to fill a quota and it all went downhill form there, much liek most all other part sof society.
dont go on any bridges for the next couple years.
>dont go UNDER any bridges for the next couple years.
like what you bucked tooth moron
It's kraut eating time, I understand.
Post proof or holobunga didn't happen
the security cameras weren't functionning at that time for unknown reasons, and the newly recruted high security guards were in the middle of a routine exercice that prevented them to watch what exactly happened when the aquarium self suicided by hanging to a roll of toilet paper.
>the security cameras weren't functionning at that time for unknown reasons
Some moron broke it. And germcucks silencing this. Fucking obvious.
they are lucky this happened during the night and not during the day when the lobby is full of people.
the CCTV footage should be good.
Live action Bioshock
I expected to see fish flopping around everywhere. The pressure probably killed them eh
Take that Putler!
I bet it was also garden gnome owned and this is just a big gnomish lighting insurance scam.
It's like when AVALANCHE bombed midgar
clean it up wagie
i smell environmentalist terrorism.
must have been PETA ending animal cruelty with a swift genocide
who could ever see that happening
I don't believe these types of story. They're too heavily coded, like they're put out for Masons to notice. Waters breaking is obviously a metaphor used in masonry, like May day being Labour Day, 137 days before Labour Day too. 137 = 33rd Prime.
fuck outta here zack, i aint buying your gematria t-shirts
Watch the water?
checked, a prediction?
Somethings fishy about it all i agree
Germany is falling
What a stupid design, no matter how you look at it.
It was always going to give way, it was just a matter of when.
No! Not the fisherinos! Rèeèeèeeeeeee
who THE FUCK cares how many humans died or injured?
>who THE FUCK cares how many humans died or injured
this but unironically
There are no survivors, anon. Fish or human.
glass garden gnomes did this to blame wypipo.
No fish on pictures, is this fake like the holocoaster?
the fish never existed. it was all a video screen. fish don't even exist.
>it was all a video screen
would have been a cheaper solution let's be real.
>fish don't even exist.
What's in my fish sticks then?
>he likes fishdicks
found the gay fish
they probably scrambled to save the fish, fish don't die from a fall.
>imagine the smell
Notice the fire suppression system has activated to save everyone from the giant tank of water and fish bursting.
This should be Illegal.
Zoos and aquariums.
Just imagine, one moment your swimming around like normal and the next literally your entire world destroyed and you and everyone you know is dead.
really makes you think...
Wittgenstein was a garden gnome who faked his death.
He started his PhD just so he could avoid the war.
meds sir, now!
Sounds like larp but I absolutely believe it.
I just looked that guy up, he was some brit garden gnome papist mega fag.
sad, poor fish
What's up with all them Electroscooter?
God damn Germans are gay...
Bro you wouldnt believe how much of a hit these e-scooters are here. Every gay is using these gay things, its insane.
I was nearly arrested last year when I threw two of them in the bushes. People park them on bicycle lanes and our enrichment youth groups like to put everyone in danger. Sometimes I want to roll my arm out and throw these fucktards in wheelchairs but in Cuckmany self defense as a white person lands you in jail and many Kanacken are kind of based.
Just buy thumb tacks, and drop them at every scooter you know is owned by a roach, moron or nafri scum. Or just scratch their paint with your key.
These scooters are all for rent. You have to activate them with your phone. You can kind of ride them for half free and that's what the Kanacken do. They are literally placed all over town with codes hanging from them. They even put them on my playground and in front of my house out of nowhere overnight. I bet those things record other things besides motion data, maybe WiFi and Bluetooth devices. Look at that globohomo art.
Become ungovernable, make the operating cost simply too high.
>Look at that globohomo art.
Only white thing is their name.
webm or it didn't happen
who cares if we can't watch it
human hubris at it again.
Why did the garden gnomes do this? Did the fish know?
Couldn't take the cold it seems
this is kanye's holocaust
ye should buy out one of these failing six flags. Then he can rename Ye's Hollocauster of horror and make it all spooky. Have some scary lookin chuck schumer look alike garden gnomes jumpin out at people and shit. would be kino af.
1 million liters of water
this is why it broke, what kind of fucking retard thought this was a good idea.
Yeah impressive that it isnt reinforced by steel frame
>this was a good idea.
Why are you incapable of formulating what you mean or why you think "this" is wrong?
Should be some frame to hold it together incase this happens
the seething germoid cuck, loses the only thing it was known for lmao
you are shitskin engineering
You still can't even tell why you think the stuff you point to is wrong.
it seems to be glued together and its pretty retarded
Verschweißtes Plexiglas ist eine Schwachstelle. Da gehört ein richtiger Stahlrahmen, aufgrund des Salzwassers sogar ein rostfreier oder feuerverzinkter Rahmen.
Das sieht nach beschissener Ingenierusleistung aus. Da wollte man mal wieder den Kapitalismus tief in den Arsch kriechen und mit dem gesparten Geld mehr Gewinn einfahren.
Why are you incapable of grasping it from the picture? It's obvious.
stop spoonfeeding the remedial and maybe they'll leave
Did you forget which site you are on? Can someone get this turkroach a link to preddit?
Kek you failed the skin color test. An actual German would’ve been sperging out about this.
Why the fuck would you do that with that amount of hydrostatic load?
Literal arrows pointing to the "this" still too retarded to understand. Are you a rheinland mutt or just a pure roach or congoid strain?
>basically a fucking 7 meter long glass cantilever loaded with a fuckload of hydrostatic pressure.
What the fuck was Hans thinking?
>Give lefties and gays money and power.
How long was it up
A week lol someone will go to jail for this
kek dat true? hahaha, German engineering at its finest.
i just read someone was there 10 years ago marveling at the thing
I'm no plexiglass engineer but those seams look super fucked up. Should have put a band around the middle or something.
Piece of shit poking the glass and people wonder why it broke, children shouldn't be trusted with touching fragile shit
Dingbat, you can clearly see two CGI planes fly into the side
Caculate the mass
Well, it's 1 million kilograms.
who has onions point saved
shitty shop is shitty
it was 1 gorillion liters
Glad I'm not a fish janny cleaning up their shit and wiping down their windows.
Wait, How can 6 million fish survive in an aquarium that is only 1 million liters?
chinese built dam over heads of 400mln chinks holding 39km3 of water
its 39 000 000 milion liters of water
Never forget the holocod
How many fish? 6 million you say? Only 1500 were found, the rest were put in a Braun Bass-O-Matic!
Gas the Pikes
PLAICE WAR NOW!!!
>Before they invite black tip sharks into the aquarium...
relax, they're only 13% of the population
What the fuck is wrong with you people? You're a Machiavellian rat demon hiding behind your anonymous privilege.
Found the garden gnomefish
This one is actually REAL.
The chlorine wasn't for gassing, it was just to sanitize the water.
they don't have enough owens for 1500 fish, the math doesn't check out
He can't get away with it
It was an act of Cod.
You're laughing. A gorillion innocent fish are dead and you're laughing.
My fish at home will have genetic memory of this! I'm not seeing compensation germany??!?!
10/10 would fishdick
The holocod is a myth perpetrated by those responsible for the holodolphin
garden gnomefish did 911
6 million gallons of fish. We will now push to ban eating fish. Disagreement will get your life cancelled.
Won't someone think of the fish?!
Sandmorons stole fish to eat, reports say
Should have made it wide and flat.
>have massive aquarium full of exotic fish hanging from the ceiling
>don't have a backup tub to put the fish in when it inevitably breaks somehow
Yikes. This is making me want to never visit Ripley's aquarium ever again.
There's an entire section with a tunnel that's underneath a gigantic aquarium.
>There's an entire section with a tunnel that's underneath a gigantic aquarium.
That's stable as fuck though, arches are based and it's steel reinforced.
everybody dies at some point. dying in a kino aquarium collapse and getting a huge payout from the lawsuit for your family would be a much better way than most.
finally someone thinking positively.
>dying in a kino aquarium collapse
No fucking thank you holy shit
You likely would be knocked unconscious from the water or glass hitting you and then die from drowning. There are way worse ways to go. Like getting eaten alive, burning, getting shrapnel in you from some artillery fire and then bleeding out over a day etc etc.
>There are way worse ways to go.
"Well that's reassuring," I say as I'm on my last moments of air
You likely would be knocked out, immediatly from the water hitting you. So no gasping for air as you fight for survival, just an eternal sleep. Hope that made you feel better.
Imagine living like this canadian anon
Wow jee wiz I sure do fear for my life bozz thanks for letting me know to avoid any amazing aquarium because of this europoor fookup in a mall
I never fear for my life
in any facet of life
I live my life knowing I can never die to such meaningless trivial bullshit like aquarium collapse. You don't have this divine blessing. You are a indesposable and you know it so you avoid going near sharp objects and shaped aquarium glass because at any momeent the universe can and will make and example out of your corpse
Why? You can't swim?
It would be hard to swim with your guts dangling from your ass and mouth after the pressure jump.
are you retarded?
The water is pressurized to deep sea depths, about 12 atmos. At that pressure if the glass broke each drop of water would be like a concrete bullet and instantly crush you.
Haha wtf no it's not. It's just a plastic tube running along the bottom of a big open fish tank. Can't be more than 12 ft deep. Workers go in regularly to feed the animals and clean when needed.
Arches are extremely safe.
Goy slop attraction
Designed by boomer whites and built with boomer white foremen/construction supervisors. You're fine.
Ripley's is fucking awesome. You can't stop me.
this many fish die every second to trawlers at sea. Its not even a drop in the ocean and why this could be an eco-terrorist action.
I hope it was. Over consumption of fish is yellow moron tier behaviour. Because you CAN overfish doesn't mean YOU SHOULD overfish. Non-whites can't conserve or limit their environmental damage, to them the world is their toilet.
You fucking gay it’s a China problem selling to Westoids. Asian populations outside of China and Pooland are shrinking or holding steady. Stop buying Chink Yellowfin and they will stop trawling 5 mile kill nets for them,
i bet you eat fish sticks
He’s a gay fish
I don’t get it.
I know it's edgy, but there's a difference between eating something for food as an energy source versus confining 1500 fish in a cage (all different species, too) as a testament to the hubris of man.
Actual aquariums usually serve a dual purpose as research facilities, and have massive tanks. But there is no scientific purpose to this goyslop attraction. It's cruel. picrel is a real aquarium and research center.
Similar with regard to zoos. we eat land animals for food. There are zoos and conservatories like the San Diego zoo which are humane and benefit the wildlife there and assist in our research knowledge which helps them in the wild. But people who cage animals in venues like owl cafes and shit should be killed. Torturing and confining animals purely for amusement is subhuman behavior.
what color is a german nowadays.
Since when was German engineering good?
Engineering is about meeting specified requirements within reasonable cost.
It's not about shoving as much expensive, overcomplicated solutions on top of each other as you can.
the eternal buttmad toilet cleaner
Haha, based toothpaste flag moron
The eternal phone poster, or you're just the average amerimutt and just don;t know any better.
>buttmad Ivan because Lada and GAZ applaud themselves that 50% of their cars now have an audio Jack instead of a cassette player
This. Germans see something that could be done with one part and say why not 3.
There are tigers who took over 400 rounds and would still be able to maneuver. It's better than anything your made up country that is half Russian half German has ever produced.
>Ersatz vatnik noises
You will never see a toilet that you won't feel an unstoppable urge to clean
She's usually brown
blue, MFs are frozen
no gas = no heating = glass expands and then breaks?
Cold = glass contracts
Btw it's not glass but a sort of ploymer acrylic i think (plexiglass)
Not "is" it "was".
wrong. the glass froze and it expanded, bursting everything. only the salt water fish survived since they can hibernate for some time.
Water expands when it turns to ice, but almost everything other type of substance shrinks as it gets cold.
>USA moron public school tier IQ.
ok so there were salt water fish in with fresh water fish and then the water that has salt in it froze.
was also my first guess
they probably stopped heating the room but kept heating the water because tropical fish
the temperature difference was too much for the glass to handle
i am actually surprised there isn't a live feed of this thing or at least i couldn't find any
It’s unlikely as the aquadom is inside an expensive hotel. There’ve been many hairline fractures due to people banging on the glass and the pressure is engineered to be focused on the bottom with the outter walls being more unstable than the inside where the lift is installed. The most likely scenario is simply bad luck - glass is unpredictable.
Hotel was told to reduce the temperature in the lobby. The water has to be heated to 35 degrees Celsius. The temperature fell to -11....you do the math.
I think it was a planned failure though insomuch as the tank breaking goes.
They didn't protect it from this and I think they did it on purpose.
the properties of the epoxies fusing the plexiglass have a slight enough variance that they shrink and expand at different rate when temperatures fluctuate.
>glass expands when it's getting colder
I thought things expand when they're heated and shrink when they're cooled
Same, except for water, which miraculously begins to expand when its temperature is less than 4C.
Well yeah, that makes sence for water - crystal lattice or whatever that is called in english starts forming, hence it expands.
It's da jooos. it was an inside job.
despite what climate gays want you to believe water doesn't expand but contracts when it gets warm
Water expands about four percent when heated from room temperature to its boiling point. The ocean will expand when heated
climate change huh?
Water doesn't Igor. Tho i doubt that's the reason it bursted. Bet there's some fish hating Moslem terrorist behind it.
Ans you collect insurance check because you accidentally didn't heat it enough and don't have to deal with a humongous electric bill for the winter.
