Hi. If it was built today, what they would most probably do is that they would conduct lots of simulation tests, pressure, thermal stress and will make a test on how it floats on water.

I hope I answered your question.

How was she built ?
- with lots and lots of manual work,
- use of steam power and giant machines.

How did they put her into the water ?
- The Titanic (and the Olympic) were built on large slipways,
- once the hull was mostly completed, the supports were removed and the slipway lubricated with "twenty-two tons of soap and tallow", so she could slide into the LAGAN river.
