MANHOLE COVER

 

Have you ever stopped to wonder why certain things are the way they are in the world we live in?Like manhole covers for instance.  Do you know why manhole covers are round?

If you are a Civil Engineer then you already know the answer to this question but if you don’t know, let me know what you think without googling, or binging, or yahooing  it and I will follow-up with the answer in a post.

So what do you think??????  Any idea??

    I am not sure, but I think they are for getting to under the street electrical systems for street lights and so on. ?????

  2. Just to clarify – why are the covers themselves round and the manholes- why are they round?

    Is it something to do with the amount of wrought iron required for the cover? A square one would take more, so would be more expensive to make? That’s just a guess, so probably has nothing to do with it!
