Any experts here on whether or not it's going to hold?
Worked on some electronic equipment that is there in the '80s, some coworkers were there back then. Hope the dam holds up, first I have heard of the flooding.
A civil friend said it is enough weight to influence the crust of the earth. Time will tell.
If it doesn't, heads will LOL.
Would be curious if/what failsafes the dam has built into itself. Depending on how close the water level is to that, and current rates of inflow/ outflow there may be limited options for the dam operators to avoid catastrophic damage, one way or the other.
I wouldn’t worry too much. China has the man power to fix anything. I saw that they’re loading trains with people the other week. Must have be the construction crew.
It has shifted around and water is leaking through, but it's fine. For your safety there will be a news blackout of the 3 gorges region and the Yangtze river downstream for 12 months. Do not believe the Western rumors!
That shit's going to blow.
No, that’s the new dam.
Isn’t this how the zombie apocalypse started in one of the novels
Train loads of phil????
It's heavy enough that it slows down the earth's rotation. Only by .06 microseconds, but that's still mucho weighto.
Fail safes due to water level? That shit should be designed to withstand water pouring over the top with zero water on the opposing side with a 5x safety factor. At least that's what I would imagine, but I'm not a civil guy (nor living in China).
I didn't know there were issues with it. If that thing pops errbody fucked.
I had a funny conversation with my girl's hippie friend about that thing a couple years ago. She was citing it as an example of green energy. I couldn't stop laughing for too many reasons to list.
Deformed and seepage according to the dams operator. Knowing China how much of a downplayed statement is this? And htf does a dam deform and that not be a sign of impending failure?
Uighur, the finest concrete filler material in all of China. Mined directly from the highlands.
It’s not a sign of impending failure. Who you gonna believe, your lying eyes?
Looks like they accidentally built that thing to their usual standards of excellence.
Made in China.
It had a good run. 8 years.
Only thing I know of that’s lasted longer is Harbor Freight jack stands.
Everything is fine, nothing to see here
The Titanic was unsinkable too
