Bridge Collapse Database


This database has details of 360 bridges that have collapsed around the world.

The initial dataset was collated by Daniel Imhof as part of his PhD work at the University of Cambridge. Daniel's PhD was concerned with risk management and with modelling the economic consequences of bridge failure. As a result, the data collected consistes mainly of brief descriptions and statistics for each bridge failure (location, number of fatalities/injuries etc.) rather than in-depth analyses of the cause of the failure.

All rights in the database are reserved to Daniel.
