Bridge Section

From ENGR005 2008

Introduction

To trace the evolution of the bridge designs, and to compare yours against others, I would like you to add entries to the following table. The number is the maximum deflection of your bridge section design.

The bridge design will proceed in three phases:

  1. You will all start with the same design that has a score of approximately 8e-6.
  2. You will discuss (in "squads" of 2 or 3) how you think the design could be changed to get a better score, and then do at least one design together.
  3. After the initial iteration (previous step) you will get together in groups of 4 or 5 to come up with new ideas and develop an improved design by trial and error. I would like you to enter your current best score on the wiki ( Scores).
