Many of the world's most famous monuments were made possible by complex engineering designs. One of them is especially the Eiffel Tower in France, which was built between 1887 and 1889 as an entrance arch to the World's Fair, in celebration of the French Revolution. Here in this article we will address some of the engineering design was to create the now world famous tower.

The two engineers who had the idea of the Eiffel Tower was Maurice Koechlin and Emile Nouguier, which emerged with the concept in June 1884 of a very high tower. The design of the tower would be very similar to a post, with four columns of lattice separated on the basis that he rejoined at the top. The project was a design safe as he wanted the tower to keep up spool 300 meters. In September 1884, 18 the tower design was patented under the name "to a new configuration that allows the construction of metal supports and pylons capable of exceeding a height of 300 meters. "

The public however, there will be a difficult group to please this project, therefore engineers enlisted the help of an architect named Stephen Sauvestre to help work on the general appearance of the tower. The architect proposed for this large engineering design of the monument legs dressed with pedestals stone. He also suggested a bulb-shaped design of the top of the tower and other ornamental pieces to decorate the tower. Many elements of engineering design tower have been simplified, but the impressive arches of the base of the tower remained.

Engineering design of the Eiffel Tower also took a lot of mathematics to create the curvature of the amounts needed to offer much resistance as possible. When the tower was built many people worry that the tower was too bold a manner. The tower, of course, should be strong enough to withstand the wind force, which was calculated mathematically. Theories of the mathematical equation of wind resistance have been proposed over the years. More recently, through a counter theory about wind in each part of the tower with the tension between the construction has been looked at. However, the tower was swaying two to three inches in the wind.
