The Széchényi Chain Bridge, named after István Széchenyi, was the first permanent bridge across the Danube between Pest and Buda.
The suspension bridge that stretches above the strait between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean was opened in 1937.
The least tightly packed crystal structure.
The face-centered cubic metal lattice allows the closest fit of metal atoms.
Metals forming hexagonal metallic lattices are rigid and difficult to machine.
Metal atoms form a regular lattice structure.
There are various types of instruments used for measuring temperature.
Types of bridges include beam-, arch-, suspension-, cantilever and truss bridges.
In the Tudor Era around 200 buildings were built on the bridge across the River Thames.
The relationship between the pressure, volume and temperature of ideal gases is described by the gas laws.
