The Structural Physics of the Golden Gate Bridge

A very entertaining and informative video on the various vibrational modes of the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, as demonstrated on a scaled model. It is presented by Dave Fleming, a mechanical engineer at the Exploratorium in San Francisco.

He made a quick mention of the vibrational mode that was experienced by the infamous Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
