PT 1.4 - Testing of Bridge


Before testing our bridge, we weighed our bridge. It was surprisingly light, at just over 195g.

This is the way the bridge was held, before the testing began.
The weight of the load was applied directly onto the centre, with the pole slotted in the middle.
The bridge held 50kg, and this was it at 60kg just before it broke,

The damage of the bridge is shown by the image on the left. The damage caused is known as anchor failure, and a way to prevent it is to build additional supports to the anchor, and to make the anchor thicker.
