INTRODUCTIONEngineering is an area of study was the technicalities and principles of the theory are observedwith practical demonstration. Relating to Information Technology and Computers, the aspect ofvisualization of learnings through theoretical principles is difficult to relate to new the world.Hence the mechanism of engineering can be witnessed and viewed by the mechanism ofcommunication in the digital structure. A message sent from one source, it reaches thedestination, the communication channel is thus established and created effectively. This providesa proof, that the mode of communication is important when it comes to Engineering concepts inIT. The report presented below is a crafted summary of the concepts of communication and ananalysis of the case, to identify the role of communication in the entire cycle. The value ofcommunication is described through the case in a manner that covers the case background, withissues faced risks identified, the impact of micro and macro environmental factors. The reportalso an emphasis on the lessons learnt from the analysis which is presented as suggestions in thelater part of the report. The report ends with a conclusion, that crafts the summary of the reportwith the case in the centre.WHAT IS REFLECTIVE PRACTICE?Communication is important, it is an essential part of any structure, be it humanly enabled, ormachine is driven. Communication brings together the elements and components of overallsystems together. The approaches of communication can be different with different people, butfor an interaction with self, often the standard combination procedures fail. The mechanism oflistening to oneself, while paying attention to what has gone by, looking at the previously takenactions and focusing attention to practical values in order to improve the object, or learn from themistakes or circumstances, is what comes under self-talk. This self-talk when done with aconcentration at the reflective outcome to plan any futuristic risk handling or mitigation of thesame is often termed as Reflective Practice. To look back into actions or steps to improve thefuture steps by learning from already occurred mistakes is what the term liberates. 3 | P a g e

The case for reference to understand the concept of the importance of communication is theVirtual Simulation of the Catastrophic Damage to St. Francis Dam. The breakout of Dam in theyear 1928 with over 500 casualties and estimated damage ranging between $10-25 million USDsurfaced as a big lesson in the industry of civil engineering (Begnudelli & Sanders,2007). It isthus from the learnings of absolute failure are the lessons learnt by reflective practice. Theinsight analysis of causes of failure amongst the other factors, the technical modelling of causesand simulation drawing of the scenario is an opportunity to understand the role of InformationTechnology and communication techniques utilized in the analysis of recording the learningsfrom an unfortunate incident. The analysis of predictive flooding, estimation of damage cost withan understanding of the mechanism of causes of failure is all enabled with the use of technologybridged by Information systems and different modes of communication.KEY ISSUESThe issues associated with the catastrophic discussion of the St. Francis Dam are unique in itsown nature. The Dam was a curved concrete structure that was designed and developed between1924 and 1926 (Begnudelli & Sanders,2007). The dam was designed to support and hold 43million cubic meter water (Begnudelli & Sanders,2007). It is was at the very first time that thecomplete potential threshold was put to test, that this unfortunate incident happened. Thedestruction caused by it, soon after its collapse was magnanimous and surprisingly it, later on,came out in the simulations, that originally, the foundation of the dam was with a fault.The left and right support structures of the bridge mass which are the abutment wasidentified to be faulted with the fault being identified and raised two days earlier to the collapse(Begnudelli & Sanders,2007). The primary reason indicates the poor foundational structure ofthe bridge with the west abutment was said to be standing and constructed over a fault whereasthe other abutment on the east side was standing with Mica schist having a greasy texture. Theleakage in water was detected and observed earlier than the bridge collapsed. The bridge gotdestabilized when it was completely filled with water and started cracking in several places. The Dam break modelling is crucial when it comes to crafting safety procedures in caseof these difficult and catastrophic scenarios. Also, the emergency support systems and the alertmechanisms are to be in sync and structured in parallel to ensure minimal damage to livelihood.4 | P a g e
