John Malloy Bridge Reflection – 1 January 8, 2009 This project required at least a basic understanding of force and how it spreads throughout a structure. In order to make this project a success, much attention to detail was required, as well as a steady hand. Even the smallest error in putting the bridge together can result in disaster for the whole structure. On the same note, all measurements needed to be precise since the structure and gap were relatively small. All in all, this was an interesting project, that required much attention to detail.

John Malloy Bridge Reflection – 2 January 8, 2009 I put some time into researching different bridge designs and drew a few that I thought would work well. Though we didn’t end up using any of my sketched designs, we used one that the whole group agreed upon. After that, all members of the group spent time creating separate parts of the bridge. We later brought all the pieces together to form the final product. Once we glued all the separate pieces together, we had to hold the bridge

Unformatted text preview: together for a while until the glue dried. John Malloy Bridge Reflection -3 January 8, 2009 I enjoyed researching the different bridge designs and seeing everything that had been made and the reasoning behind them. A few bridges seemed like they would be excellent for this project, albeit hard to construct using toothpicks and glue. In my eyes, the arch bridge stood out as the one we should have done, but ours did well and got an A. It was a bit frustrating to see the bridge that we put time into making smashed by 20 pounds, but I guess that was the whole point of the project. John Malloy Bridge Reflection 4 January 8, 2009 I would give myself a B for this project. Though I, and the rest of my group, put a lot of time into making our bridge, I feel like the end result could have turned out much better. It was lopsided and didnt sit flat on the table. With a bit more attention paid to what we were doing, I feel like our bridges weight ratio would have been much greater....
