10 MOST AMAZING CIVIL ENGINEERING PROJECTS FROM HYSTORY TO MODERN TIMES

Throughout history, many incredible engineering projects have been established and completed. From the earliest history of history to modern times, there are many works that demonstrate our ability to realize an incredibly creative vision. While every engineer or anyone who appreciates structures may have their own opinion as to which engineering project is most impressive, it can be assumed that these ten will be topped:

Great Pyramid of Giza:

This incredible creation consisted of two and a half million stone blocks, which required the constant labor of thirty thousand laborers to build.

the great Wall of China:

Not many people know about this huge wall of five and a half miles long that the mortar used in its construction is made of rice flour.

Aqueduct of Segovia:

These wonderful aqueducts have been built without the use of mortar, and are so well preserved that it is still in use today.

Brooklyn Bridge:

It was the first suspension bridge to use steel in its cables.

Panama Canal:

This man-made canal was designed to connect the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans to provide passage for trade ships between North and South America.


Hoover Dam:

Named as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the dam generates four billion kilowatt hours of electricity for use.

Golden Gate Bridge:

This historic wonder connects San Francisco to the rest of the bay, and is made of six million rivets.

English Channel Tunnel:

A thirty-one mile long tunnel, the English Channel Tunnel is the longest of any tunnel currently under the sea.

Burj Khalifa:

Interestingly, one of the biggest setbacks faced by the construction of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, was winds of one hundred and sixty kilometers per hour that required special testing to determine the safety of building materials.

Qingdao Haiwan Bridge:

It is currently the longest bridge in the world and was specially built to withstand earthquakes and typhoons.
