TAMU Bizzell Street Pedestrian Crossover Technical Memorandum To: Dr. Ostrovskaya and Professor Hughes From: Subject: Final Report for Pedestrian Crossover Bridge Date: October 30, 2007 SUMMARY Design a bridge that has the lowest possible project cost that meet all of the design conditions. The cost, which is determined by the materials and the simplicity of the design, and the factor of safety is the measure of validity of the bridge. Design conditions require that the four balls at the bottom of the bridge be rested on solid ground and must stay rested during the entirety of the test. The length of our bridge is must be between 4.30 and 5.30 inches long. The bridge carries a test load of at least 2lbs applied at the center of the bridge, and develop an analytical model for the bridge. If any one of the conditions is not met then the bridge will be disqualified. METHOD *****Instruction on how the truss should be built. To determine whether the truss is stable, unstable, or over-constrained, use Eq1.1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
