Report

α Squad

The α squad was comprised of John Dinh and Wesley Edwards. Our main goal was to create designs eliminating large chunks of material while still maintaining structural strength and minimal stress deflection. We came to the consensus that triangles were to be used as our primary shape for the design of the bridge because of the way weight is distributed in a triangle. Also, our experience and minimal knowledge of bridges revealed that we had some knowledge about triangles used in real life bridges.
