the titanic broke in half for a number of reasons.
first problem: the type of iron and steel used in her hull plating was a low density type of steel. This means the hull has a rather porous surface that can get irritated after time in severe weather conditions.

Because of this the back section of the ship rose out of the water and the weight of the Engines put stress on the hull which was weakened already by the extremley cold water. the ships hull broke right where the foundation of the engines were laid into the hull. This cause even more flooding in the bow section making it sink faster.

the bottom of the hull was known as a "double hull" meaning there was a entire structure underneath the ship making it stronger. so when the ship broke in half that metal and stell was twsited and bending creating a hinge effect which cause the bow to pull the stern downward. but because there was still alot of air in the stern it was pulled down hard enough to stand upright and began flooding. the bow snapped from the stern and headed for the bottom leaving the stern section standing upright with the heavt engines already underwater (hence the reason the ship stood upright).

The stern section stood for a few minutes upright because the engines weer almost completley submerged as water and air bubbles of extreme pressure began to take over the reamins of the ship.

the ship starts to sink straight down because once again, the engines are the heaviest part of the ships stern and as physics will tell you went under first. the speed of the stern sinking caused air to escape and extreme speeds causing what looks like explosions of water and air coming out of windows and any open portions of the ship.

Hope I answered your question. =)

Great post, Shauntexdrummer! There's a thread on this in Historical called "the breakup" with a number of excellent posts as well.

I just saw it this morning and was thinking that I'd read it yesterday. Now I know I'm not imagining.
