    Leonardo da Vinci designed a 240 meters bridge it would have been the longest bridge in the world. His plan was ambitious. In 1502, a skeptical sultan rejected Leonardo's design as impossible, but 300 years civilization finally embraced the engineering principle - arches as supports - underlying the construction. The bridge has been constructed, in Norway. Now instead of spanning the Bosporus , his visionary creation was destined to span 500 years as a bridge to another millennium. Vebjorn Sand

    One of the most common types of bridges in the world is a truss bridge. It uses triangles, which are very stable shapes, to create frameworks that can distribute the load through the bridge, also known as trusses. The trusses are also able to increase the overall strength of the bridge and protect the deck from warping. Examples of truss bridges include the Warren, the Pratt and the K-Truss designs. The most common bridge design for real and model bridges is the Warren design. It was patented

    years, there have been many bridge that have collapsed, causing many lives to be put in danger and lost. This project is to determine how much weight it would take for different scale model designs of truss bridges to collapse when weight, pressure, and gravity is applied to them. This experiment will test which truss bridge designs of, Pratt, Warren, and Howe. I chose this project because I want to see which truss bridge could hold the most weight capacity. Bridges are structures used by people

    I Wish to Pursue Structural Engineering A simple bridge truss was the first structure I ever analyzed. The simple combination of beams that could hold cars, trains, and trucks over long spans of water fascinated me. Having the tools to analyze the loads on the truss further increased my interest in structures. I encountered the bridge in a textbook for my first engineering class. Knowing that the professor, Mr. Paul Davids, was a tough teacher, I asked him for the textbook so I could study

    How to Make a Monkey Bridge Bridges are made to cross impassible obstacles. There are many different styles and designs of bridges that have been constructed throughout history. One style that can be constructed to cross many different types of obstacles is a monkey bridge. Single A-frame monkey bridges are constructed with two a-frame stile trestles with a thick rope as the walk-way that is run between the trestles. Depending on the terrain, the trestles can be secured to rocks, trees or a constructed

    Bridge Weaknesses

    • 928 Words
    • 2 Pages

    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. Lastly
