What really happened at the Suez Canal?


published on 5 July 2021 382 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "Practical Engineering". Recorded on 2021-04-18. Originally published on 2021-04-20.
Exploring the engineering principles behind the recent obstruction of the Suez Canal, which caused a weeklong disruption in global shipping traffic. I give a brief overview of the bank effect and dilatancy of coarse-grained soils. Hopefully, the video helps you understand a few of the engineering challenges associated with navigating massive ships through tiny canals and what can happen when they run aground!

Errata:
- I incorrectly described the landform as the "Suez Peninsula." It is the "Suez Isthmus."
