Sometimes what an item is used for is more interesting than the item itself.  In this project we were contracted to build a full scale model of a section of a large melting furnace.  The mock-up furnace section was to be for a simulation of an upcoming furnace demolition.  The premise behind the box was to test the feasibility of using explosives in the demolition process.  This mock up was to test different charges and placement.  Also to monitor the integrity of the hearth floor steel.  The box was used to the point of destruction on two separate tests.   After the first test the floor steel buckled.  The box was brought back to us and the warped section of the floor was replaced.  After the second destructive test the box was unrepairable.
