This eBook deals with making a wooden bridge out of Popsicle sticks, basswood, or balsa wood it also points you to other eBooks at a low cost that will help you solve these types of problems. It discusses how to go about this and how to analyze this bridge “as if” it was a real life bridge. You will see how to estimate the weight of the bridge, and how to “predict” which members might fail before your “expected” ultimate load is reached. It will explain how to design your bridge so more than one load location can be used for the load crush test. It will discuss the glue to use and how to design the joints and members so that you can achieve an “efficiency” rating of many thousands of times the initial weight of your bridge (depending on the type of bridge you choose and the material the bridge is made from). It will allow you to consider this as you might if you were an engineer responsible for such a design in timber, or steel, for example. This eBook is great for anyone who might want to WIN a competition and who wants a distinct advantage into achieving the “highest” load at failure / initial weight ratio. In real life we attempt to design the “lightest” structure to minimize costs, so a project like this will give you the keys to understanding the fundamental concepts of bridge design. This eBook will also discuss what this bridge might carry if you considered a scaled down freight train using this bridge. Check it out and WIN your next competition. This eBook is designed to be a fast and easy read.
