- Clifton Suspension Bridge The Clifton Suspension Bridge is located in Bristol England, and spans the beautiful Avon gorge. This bridge has become the symbol of Bristol much like the Eiffel tower has of Paris, and the Opera house has of Sydney. The story of the Clifton Suspension Bridge began in 1754 with the dream of a Bristol wine merchant who donated his life savings to build a bridge over the gorge. To decide on a suitable design for the bridge a competition was held. Thomas Telford, the leading civil architect of the time was the judge.... [tags: History Historical Bridge Architecture Essays]

- ... Suspension bridges are visually appealing and light yet strong and durable. Suspension bridges are made from enormous cables that reach from one end of the bridge to the other. These cables rest on top of high towers and swoop down. They are fastened by anchorages that are on both ends of the bridge, which help stabilize the bridge. Most of the weight of the bridge is carried by wires that drop to the road surface from the main cables. These wires help evenly allocate the weight of the bridge and keep the cables sturdily in place.... [tags: bridge, ocean, distance]

- ... One of the great engineering feats when building this bridge was the use of steel. Despite its maximum height of 343m span of 2.46km, 280m above the valley floor, the bridge is actually quite light. 242,000 tonnes seems like a lot but without the use of steel on the structure, this bridge would have been more than twice as heavy. Steel is a much stronger material than concrete, so can support more weight with less mass. The actual road deck, which is comprised almost entirely of steel, only weighs 36,000 tonnes....

- For many centuries, mankind has worked tirelessly to adapt his environment to his needs. This means artificially fertilizing soil, genetically engineering plants, even attempting to create rain artificially (Mone). However, sometimes, water has gotten in the way, so, when man wants to build his roads across them, his solution was: Pick up the road and carry it across. Many suspension bridges are already well known for their frequent usage. For example, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Union Bridge connecting England to Scotland, and the Brooklyn Bridge, which expands New York City to surrounding islands....

- Suspension bridges were important before 1940 and are still important today. Major cities such as San Francisco, and Manhattan both have a suspension bridge. Suspension bridges are,” a bridge having a deck suspended from cables anchored at their extremities and usually raised on towers” (dictionary.com). Due to the fact that suspension bridges are not completely supported throughout the length of the bridge, past bridges were unsafe. For example, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a suspension bridge opened on July 1st, 1940 (Mark Ketchum).... [tags: wind tunnel, bridges, tacoma narrows]

- A bridge is a structure ,built by many different materials, to travel over physical objects. For example, bridges were made over bodies of water, roads or intersections, and valleys. The first welded road bridge was designed by Polish engineer Stefan Bryla in 1927.There is an average of about 607,380 bridges throughout the Unites States. There are many different bridges throughout the world and there is also different causes for bridges. There are also many different designs that all have different purposes and apply to different situations.... [tags: Bridge, Bridges, Box girder bridge]

- A bridge is a structure that is used to cross an obstacle such as a river, a channel, a valley or a highway. The simplest kind of bridge is a tree trunk that has fallen across a stream or a set of twisted ropes and bamboo poles suspended (hanging) over a river. The latter is an example of early suspension bridges. Such bridges are still used in remote areas of many parts of the world like Asia, Africa and South America. The modern, strong, sophisticated suspension bridges are the result of the work of a German-born engineer called John Roebling.... [tags: history]

- Abstract: This report is an analysis of a suitable bridge design to span across a 300mm gap while also being able to support maximum load. Introduction: This report will investigate different bridge designs, from the gathered information a pasta bridge will be constructed replicating the bridge that: 1) Holds sufficient weight 2) Is economically viable 3) Has pleasing aesthetics The bridge must have enough deck room to accommodate a matchbox car. The bridge design that seems most appropriate will be scaled and down and constructed than tested.... [tags: Bridge, Bridges, Moon bridge, Arch]

- Johnny Tran 11-14-14 Physics Period 4 There are many types of bridges. Some bridges has many strength and weaknesses. For example, a beam bridge’s weakness would be that you have to use a lot of stone starting up from the ground. Another example would be how a suspension bridge’s strength would be it flexibility, like the Golden Gate Bridge. The engineering process for a bridge would be to first make sure everything will be symmetrical. Secondly, from that symmetrical blueprint, the construction of the bridge is now good to go....

- Cancer and Lucille Clifton's Poetry Sometimes knowledge of someone’s life can be taught by stanzas. It is not always simple being honest and open to discuss past troubles, but it is important that those negative thoughts do not stay bottled inside you. Expressing these feelings can help aid in recovering. Lucille Clifton uses poetry as her therapy to bring out all the shadows in her life. From the beginning of her career with the publishing of Good News About the Earth in 1972 to the most recent addition, Mercy in 2004, we see how Clifton relies on her writing to capture her past....
