    • 655 Words
    • 3 Pages

    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 Compression and tension Compression being a compressive force that acts to compress or shorten the thing it is acting on. Tension…

    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…

    There are many different types of bridges. More specifically, there are many types of truss bridges. One popular truss bridge is the Golden Gate Bridge, which is located in San Francisco, California. This bridge is a Warren deck truss bridge because of the equal size of the diagonals and to contain both tension and compression (Types of bridges) and it has a Suspension, fixed and approach Spans because of the metal braced ribbed deck arch.(Golden Gate Bridge). Some other important features of…

    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…

    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…
