The top of the triangle holds the arc back and thus allows for a load to be p...

Re: Bridge Designs

hello, i have been recently trying out a new design, a triangle topped bridge but on the bottom instead of a straight line to connect the two legs of the triangle it is a curve. It has been working like magic, any thoughts?

Last minute ideas, thank you. :mrgreen:

Re: Bridge Building 2016

Is it normal that there is no impound, I am a 9th grader so I wouldn't know if this, no impound thing is normal or not.
