Where is the bridge allowed to touch the test base? 3e states "no portion may extend below the top surface of the test supports PRIOR to testing - but it does not say anything about how much it can sag during testing. There is no info -
Does anyone have a link of a diagram with dimensions of the test base?

While Scioly is a WONDERFUL site for information on how to do better in Science Olympiad, the one thing it is not is OFFICIAL. While you can get learned OPINIONS on the rules here, the ONLY source of official rules clarifications is the National SO website http://www.soinc.org. Remember to read all posts with that in mind.

royT wrote:In the statement 'no portion of the bridge may extend below the top surface of the test supports' does the loading block count as part of the bridge, meaning can the loading block extend below the top surface of the test supports? or can the eyebolt extend below the top surface of the test supports?
