Abstract:
PURPOSE The purpose of this experiment was to see which type of bridge is the strongest out of three types of bridges. I became interested in this idea when I realized the increasing amount of traffic adds more weight on the bridges thus making them more likely to break. The information gained from this experiment will help civil engineers to create stronger bridges for the increasing population. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HYPOTHESIS My hypothesis is that the Truss Bridge will support the most weight. I base my hypothesis on the information I learned that tells me that truss and arch are two of the strongest types of bridges.
