More joints in more flexible materials means more working of the joints and the faster they will fail.
Shear strength is another issue to consider, wood is 100 to 300 psi, steel is 36,000 to 50,000 psi.
Genesis 2:6 says, “But streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.” Before the Flood (Genesis chapters 6-9), the earth was possibly surrounded by a “firmament” or canopy of water, creating a greenhouse effect on the earth’s climate.
These would have been the waters that God released, causing the Flood.
Some Biblical literalists claim that the Babylonians borrowed their ideas fro the Epic of Gilgamesh from the Genesis, but here are some reasons why that is extremely unlikely: As for the real source of many flood stories, the most likely one is that detailed HERE in the article from the National Geographic, The Black Sea and the Search for Noah's Flood.
The Bible gives the date of the flood as beginning 2345 BCE and ending in 2344 BCE If this were really the world-wide gig claimed by creationists then the civilizations of the world would all show a disruption in their history or at least take note of such an event, but does the rest of archeology/history corroborate the Biblical account=== [It has already been mentioned here that] The Biblical Flood story looks a lot like the Epic of Gilgamesh "The Chaldean Flood Tablets from the city of Ur in what is now Southern Iraq, describe how the Bablylonian God Ea had decided to eliminate humans and other land animals with a great flood which was to become 'the end of all flesh'".
Actually it is not the strength, as in pounds per square inch of tension or compression that makes steel better than wood.
Fact is they built large ships out of concrete during WW1. The remains of one is attached to a pier at Seabright Beach State Park on Monterey Bay of California. Modulus of elasticity is what controls stiffness and that's what limits spans as in the length of a ship.
The connections of these is another issue, screws and such hold better in steel than in wood, especially in working joints.A recently deciphered 4,000-year-old tablet from ancient Mesopotamia purportedly contains the specifications for an ark to endure a great flood — and it predates the Biblical story of Noah.It describes a huge vessel, two-thirds the size of a soccer field, with high walls and made with so much rope that “stretched out in a line would reach from London to Edinburgh.” [sharequote align=”center”]”…one of the most important human documents ever discovered.”[/sharequote] The tablet — subject of a new book titled, “The Ark Before Noah” — was put on display Friday at the British Museum and is claimed by the museum’s assistant keeper of the Middle East, Irving Finkel, to be “one of the most important human documents ever discovered.” The 4000 year old clay tablet containing the story of the Ark and the flood stands on display at the British Museum in London during the launch of the book ‘The Ark Before Noah’ by Irving Finkel, curator in charge of cuneiform clay tablets at the British Museum, Friday, Jan. (AP Photo/Sang Tan) Finkel said he received the tablet several years ago from a man who said his father had acquired it in the Middle East.We can speculate that it had rained before the Flood, but, again, the Bible does not specifically say.
