  • Guilford Covered Bridge Essay

    At one point in time, there were roughly 400 to 500 covered bridges in the state of Indiana. Beginning in 1835, Henry County contained the first covered bridge in Indiana history. In 1937, Indiana was home to 202 covered bridges; Dearborn County had two. By 1998, there was only one covered bridge in Dearborn County, and it is known as Guilford Covered Bridge (Covered Bridges in Indiana). Guilford Covered Bridge was built in 1879 by A.M. Kennedy and Sons, who had built around fifty covered bridges in Indiana by the 1900s. The bridge was built with a Burr arch truss located in Guilford, Indiana, over Tanners Creek as the entrance into the small town. The bridge was seventeen feet nine inches wide, twelve feet nine inches tall, and one hundred four feet long with a seven foot overhang at both ends.

Some other important features of…

  • Post Truss Bridge

    Edmond Liu My popsicle bridge is based on a truss design, which is a bridge design held up by a connected structure composed of many smaller pieces. In particular, my bridge is a variation of the Queen Post Truss Bridge, which has two central supporting posts to allow for a greater span allowing for larger contact points. (http://pghbridges.com/basics.htm) My design is modified to incorporate two extra posts towards the two contact points where the bridge rests on the desk, to increase the…

  • Three Crane Observation Analysis

    Line: During my observation of Three Cranes, lines that appear to be distinguishable would be the horizontal lines as well as the diagonal lines. The horizontal lines are noticeable since the image appears to be in layers, which involve layers of soil, grass, shade, and light. Furthermore, the image presents diagonal lines through the posture, position, and sight of each crane. The crane whose body is closest to the soil represents a wide diagonal line that appears to be increasing from right…

  • Truss Bridges

    Arch bridge, Truss bridge, Cantilever bridge, Cable-Stayed bridge, Beam bridge and Suspension bridge, All ranging with different designs. All of the different bridge designs are made to withstand a specific amount of weight. A bridge supports weight when the base of the bridge is made out of strong and good material to support the long span. Bridges can hold heavy loads because of the constant pulling and pushing force of each part of the bridge. This form of force is commonly known as…

  • Truss Bridge Research Paper

    For the purpose of this project we will be discussing mainly the truss bridge. A truss bridge is a bridge whose load-bearing superstructure is composed of a truss, a structure of connected elements forming triangular units. The connected elements (typically straight) may be stressed from tension, compression, or sometimes both in response to dynamic loads. (john, 2013) A truss is assumed to comprise of members that are connected by means of pin joints, and which is supported at both ends by…

  • River Bridge Lab Report

    There are two different truss types available during the construction of the bridge that includes truss type 1 and truss type 2. Both the designs are similar in nature but in this project the truss type 1 is chosen as the triangles help in making the bridge structure more stable. The second design of the bridge truss is beneficial for reducing the material usage and cost. By tilting the sides of the bridge in an inward manner will help in reducing wood usage that is required on the upper portion…
