Building bridges

Building bridges 1

In construction club, we are currently investigating different designs for bridges carrying heavy loads. So far we have looked at cantilever bridges, arch designs, and famous suspension bridges like the Humber bridge and the Golden Gate bridge.

 

Recently, we looked at which shape offered the best stability. We came to the conclusion that triangles and tetrahedrons were very helpful.
