    experiment that can withstand the load. We have decided to focus on a truss bridge type with suggestions of either Howe, Pratt or Warren truss bridges. Upon research of each type of trusses we have decided to build a Pratt truss bridge based on the simplistic design and the ability of the group members to construct the bridge with spaghetti. The Pratt truss bridge is an ideal bridge for its structural mechanics. The design of the Pratt truss bridges combines the elements of internal web members of diagonal

    a long time. Bridges go all the way back to the Romans with arch bridges and to the suspension bridges in modern day cities. There are various types of bridges, but which one can support the most weight? Truss bridges can support weight because of their meticulously placed beams, but which truss is the best? The history bridges have surrounding them spans a long period of history. Romans were the first civilization to construct long lasting bridges with their aqueducts. They made arch bridges which

    behind a simple truss bridge because it takes no effort to drive over one, and because they are there for your use. If you don’t consider truss bridges you most likely don’t think of the physics, the timing, effort, and hard work to make the truss bridge. On my essay on Truss bridges I will over run the history of a truss bridge, the process, types of truss bridges, roadbed types, types of truss bridges, and famous truss bridges from around the world Created by Truss bridges have a lot

  • Truss Design Project Essay

    designed a truss to support a point load, placed at 190mm from the edge of a 450mm gap. The vertical face of the trusses is modelled on the already established ‘K’ truss design, but the overall shape of the structure is our own. There are three ‘K’ units on each truss. The two vertical faces are held together at the top by another truss-like design. We modelled this on the ‘N’ truss. The truss is constructed from hot-dog sticks, glue and bolts. Introduction The task was to construct a truss out

  • The Truss Bridge By David Plowden

    The truss bridge reflected many of the qualities of America 's industrial society by the early twentieth century: steel-made, mass manufactured, practical and unglamorous, sturdy and dependable, cost-competitive, and highly versatile. Such structures were, wrote David Plowden in his splendid Bridges: The Spans of North America, "appropriate icons to our industrialization." For the developing state of Oklahoma, steel trusses held symbolic value too, for they provided tangible proof to a wider world

  • Design And Background Of Truss The Force

    Introduction and Background Research Truss the force. A valid title for a bridge that needs to withstand the force of many newtons. We were presented with the challenge to create the most efficient bridge made of basswood that we can. The purpose of this challenge was to help us develop a certain understanding of how structures respond to force application. We began our research with an in class assignment on forces. We studied the different types of forces such as compression, tension, bending

  • Warren Truss Bridge Essay

    1151 Words  | 5 Pages

    I decided to make a warren truss bridge for this project (Wikipedia, 2015). This type of bridge uses equilateral triangles to help bare tension or compression forces that the bridge may undergo (Mudaliar, 2015). I picked this design because it is a popular bridge design and it will have a smaller mass then some other bridge designs. This design has the potential to be very efficient in the amount of weight it can hold because of it being lighter than other designs. The one problem you have to solve

  • Disadvantage Of Iron Mosque

    707 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Iron mosque is known to be so due to its stainless-steel clad structure. It’s a very modern building located in the administrative capital, Putrajaya. Nevertheless, it still manages to integrate traditional culture and religious cues into its design. These, together with its scale, location on the Putrajaya lakefront and sight lines, make it quite a spectacular building. The Iron Mosque has a district cooling system, and fans or an air conditioning system. It uses 6000 tons of iron and 70 percent
