Team #: 111317

Team members: Farinas/Maciejewski

Class/grade: Physics 11

Year: 2013

Mass supported: 21.75 kg

Placement tier: lower third

Placement: 38th out of 51 bridges

Comments: arch with tie rod above the 5 cm clearance mark. The arch is not particularly strong, having minimal lamination. Mass could have been transferred from the unnecessarily thick roadway. This roadway needs strength only at the load application points and not along its entire length.
