Bridge Competition creates stir

Thursday, December 1, 2016

This week the CivE 204 class were put to the test designing, constructing, and testing their own wooden stir-stick bridges. The requirements of this project were simple: using only stir-sticks, thread and glue, the groups had to create a structure that weighed at least 200 grams and spanned between 400-750 millimetres. 

The score for winning was based on the following criteria:

  1. strength to weight squared ratio;
  2. road construction costs (which increase if the bridge is smaller);
  3. amount of time needed to construct the bridge; and
  4. the purchasing of data sets necessary to test the bridge 

Group 19 emerged the victors, with an overall score of 2696.
