Other bridges

These are videos of the other bridges failing under their maximum load:

Note that no group was allowed to use any kind of glue.


Flat mdf and string - 540N.



This was the strongest of all the bridges. It looked as resistant as it was. Steve even went with a 200N weight straight on. The sound it made when breaking was quite impressive.

Card and mdf - 65-70N



One of the weaker bridges, but nevertheless an original design. I kind of expected it to be stronger.

Mdf and Dowel - 520N



Very very impressive. It was slightly tilted towards the crowd, didn't really look as strong as it was. I am certain it could have taken more, but unfortunately it didn't beat the Flat Mdf and string.


Mdf and String - 240N



This bridge was called HMS Sexybeast. It won, because it was simply elegant. However it didn't take a lot of weight. But it was quite slim.

Card - 90N



Card and Paper - 130N



Card and String - 65N



This one could have taken a bit more, but it rolled over...

Unfortunately card isn't the best material, because there aren't many ways you can make it stronger like paper.

Good Effort every-one!!
