Engineering Physics 12 – Two groups finished their bridges and wanted to be a part of the TRU bridge competition.  The top bridge was designed based on the group’s first attempt where they analyzed the failure mode(s) and reinforced those areas. I can get behind that kind of iteration design at this level.  The bottom design is known as being a strong structure, based on web searches.  There aren’t a lot of unknowns in long-running bridge competition that doesn’t change the design parameters…  In any event, they worked hard on the build and did their best to pay attention to small details.  We’ll see how they do.
