History of technology

History of technology can be broadly diversified into three regimes: Invention of wheel, Industrial revolution and creating an airplane. Wheel was the first standard invention of mankind (fire was discovered, not invented) and is relevant even today. Of course from then on, there were numerous technology innovations in warfare, farming and construction. Making rifles was also significant.

However, technology and its effects ran at slow speed and generally limited to its source. For instance, South America’s invention remained there only and likewise. With industrial revolution and invention of steam engines, locomotion was no more a sea-only affair. Thus, industrial transportation became faster.

When Wright Brothers came up with their airplane, unified imagination gained wings. Men could now conceptualize going to space and even moon. Now, the world has effectively shrunk; what with mobiles, Internet and HDTV. However, roots of technology are well dug in our past civilizations that continue to inspire.

Technology behind suspension bridges

Suspension bridges have a history and were made by earlier people using iron chains. The difference between cantilever bridges and suspension bridges is that while cantilever arms take the tension in cantilever bridges, cables bear all burdens here. Generally, steel is preferred as material for cables for its elasticity and compressibility.

In it, road is suspended over a long stretch, generally over bay or river, by high tension cables. Of course there are periodical pillars for support, but the main fulcrum is shared by a span of these cable wires between two main towers. Their ability to withstand weight and the capacity to be unchanged while compressed makes calculation for the load of vehicles it will take. Nowadays, prefabricated and compressed steel are used as ingredients. This bridge is a lesson in hydraulics.

Suspension bridges may not be a good idea in inclement climate. Golden Gate in San Francisco is a prime example of modern suspension bridges.
