• ## Truss Bridge Research Paper

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 means of hinged joints or rollers, it’s described as being statically determinate. Newton's Laws apply to the structure as a whole, as well as to each node or joint. In order for any node that may be subject to an external load or force to remain static…

• ## The Golden Gate Bridge: A Truss Bridge?

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 this bridge…

• ## River Bridge Lab Report

The bridge lab project was based on the given scenario in which a reliable bridge needed to be constructed over a river in order to alleviate traffic. The objective was to design a bridge to relieve traffic flow that was also safe, cost effective, and aesthetically pleasing. The constraints for this project included the budget and minimum height and width requirements. The max budget to purchase wood was \$200, the minimum height at all points of the bridge was 3 inches, the minimum width of the…

• ## CTE 101 Reflection Essay

paragraph to provide an explanation of the assessments impact on teaching and learning. As part of the knowledge acquired during CTE 101, I was able to understand the importance of having both formative and summative assessments. Formative assessment constitutes of assessing students prior to the lesson begins so you can understand how much students know about the subject. On my bridge building and testing project, I ask students for examples of truss bridges in the area to find out if they…

• ## 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…
