|summary||Engineering decision making processes are not always rational. Intuition, feeling, common sense and other forms of pre-rational mechanisms are used as well. They are based on knowledge accumulated while "being-in-the-world", and particularly during breakdowns. In the first part of the paper these claims are supported using recent findings in philosophy, psychology and AI.
Studies of engineering disciplines are predominantly theoretical and students have few opportunities to learn in the most effective way - from experiences with breakdowns. It is proposed that information technology, particularly virtual reality and multimedia would allow them to share the experience of those that had such opportunities.
In the second part of the paper, an electronic publication is presented, that uses breakdown cases to convey structural engineering knowledge of earthquake resistant design of reinforced concrete structures. It is based on more than 500 commented and classified digitised images. The system proved efficient and was found to complement the related theoretical knowledge.
