What a feat! 租房子Six years, 500 million Euros, 918 meters long . . . now this is engineering! This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and West Germany ,As 信用卡代償part of the unification project. It is located in the city of Magdeburg , near Berlin . The photo was taken on the day of inauguration . . . To those who appreciate 個人信貸engineering projects, here's a puzzle for your armchair engineers. . . and physicists. Question: Did that bridge have to be designed to withstand the additional 租房子weight of ship and barge traffic,Or just the weight of the water? Answer: It only needs to be designed to withstand the weight of the water! Why? A ship always displaces 賣屋an amount of water that weighs the same as the ship, regardless of how heavily a ship may be loaded. > > > > More . . . . The Elbe-Havel and 關鍵字廣告Mittelland canals had previously met near Magdeburg but on opposite sides of the Elbe. Ships moving between the two had to make a 12-kilometer detour, descending from the 燒烤Mittelland Canal through the Rothensee boat lift into the Elbe, then sailing downstream on the river, before entering the Elbe-Havel Canal through Niegripp lock. Low 酒肉朋友water levels in the Elbe often prevented fully laden canal barges from making this crossing, requiring time-consuming off-loading of cargo.Construction of the water link 賣房子was started as early as in the 1930s but due to the World War 2 and subsequent division of Germany the work remained suspended till 1997. The aqueduct was finally 租屋網completed and opened to the public in 2003.
