  • 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…
