Final moments of Titanic……………..

Slide 27

Titanic hit the starboard side with the iceberg.

Slide 28

The under compartments of the bow started to flood.

Slide 29

Due to the flooding, the bow commenced to go down causing the stern to rise.

Slide 30

Initially the sinking was somewhat slower…….

Slide 31

Yet the later part of the sinking was sort of faster and the golden funnels started to loosen one by one

Slide 32

Titanic continued to lose her funnels while the stern was rising nearly 60 degrees from the ocean level.

Slide 33

She was out of electrical power and the stress concentration had reached the maximum at the 2nd expansion joint of the ship which lied in between the 3rd and 4th funnels…….

Slide 34

….causing the Titanic to split in two from the 2nd expansion joint…

Slide 35

…right down to the keel of the vessel and the Stern fell back.

Slide 36

The Bow submerged completely by pulling down the Stern vertically and then finally detached.

Slide 37

The Stern floated a couple of minutes perpendicular to the ocean level.

Slide 38

Then the stern flooded and floundered completely leaving no trace of the Titanic.
