Literature Review: Warren Truss Bridge Above is an example of a Warren Truss bridge which was the type of bridge that was built in week one. According to garrettbridges.com , a warren truss bridge is equilateral triangles used to spread out the loads on the bridge. A Warren truss is a support structure used in different constructions, for supporting a load. These are used extensively in bridges as well as, residential and public works designs. The contiguous triangles that are a characteristic part of the Warren truss, also gives them the name, Triangular Truss, says innovates.net . The purpose of the bridge is using compression and tension through the triangles to make the bridge become very stable to walk/drive on.

    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.
