Battle of the Bridges
City:Outremont, QC
School:École Selwyn House (campus 1)
Abstract:The objective of my project is to determine whether or not a Suspension Bridge is stronger than a Warren Truss Bridge. I observed how these two bridge designs respond to live load by measuring the vertical displacement of each bridge’s roadbed when the same amount of weight was applied. After conducting 42 trials, my hypothesis was accepted.
