called vortex-induced vibration. Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers,. The plate girder was abandoned in suspension-bridge design. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7 of the same year. That explanation stuck for decades, even though the Federal Works Administration concluded that resonance was an improbable explanation.

The first studies concluded on November 2, 1940five days before the bridge collapse on November. This produced a "lock-on" event. Engineer Leon Moisseiff who consulted on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco countered with a novel and aesthetically pleasing design that replaced the trusses with 8-foot-high plate girders, lowering the construction costs to 8 million but providing much less resistance to bending and twisting.

In many physics textbooks, the event is presented as an example of elementary forced resonance ; the bridge collapsed because normal speed winds produced aeroelastic flutter that matched the bridge's natural frequency. This increased beyond the bridge structure strength to resist.
