7) Mr  Ranbir Sinha, a distinguished structural engineer, received a phone call from an engineering student at a nearby college. The student expressed concern that Mr. Ranbir’s famous skyscraper had a serious technical design flaw. At first, Mr. Ranbir’s  dismissed the student’s concerns outright but the conversation gets him thinking. Over the weekend, Mr. Ranbir sifts through his data and realizes the student is indeed correct – strong winds could cause this famous landmark to topple and in the process kill thousands of innocent people. Rectifying the problem would be no small task and would require notifying the building’s owners, city officials, and the press and might negatively impact Mr. Ranbir’s professional reputation. Consider each of the following questions and evaluate the case study: What is the action or inaction that is the cause for concern? Who or what may be affected? How will they be affected? (i.e., what are the possible consequences?)  Are there any laws, regulations written or unwritten that may apply? What actions might be taken and what would the consequences of these actions be? Can anything be done to prevent this from reoccurring or to minimize the severity of the consequences? (250 words)
