[ONLINE] Shipshape: Engineering to Conserve the SS Great Britain
13 October 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
An online talk by Nicola Grahamslaw CEng MIMechE
At her 1843 launch, Brunel’s SS Great Britain was declared “the greatest experiment since the creation”. This pioneering ship travelled a million miles, totally transforming global communication before being almost lost forever, until a daring rescue triumphantly returned her to her original Bristol dry dock. Come behind-the-scenes with Nicola to learn how a unique combination of mechanical, structural, electronic and software engineering is used to preserve this incredible 175-year-old iron structure, keeping Bristol’s no.1 tourist attraction ship-shape.
