West Point Bridge Designer

27 April, 2010 (17:42) | General

I was delighted to see that the West Point Bridge Designer program has been updated and the competition is still being run. It really makes bridge design fun! The main website is here: West Point Bridge Design Contest.

The program is the main point of interst though. For your design, it animates in real time the stresses and member failures that occur as chosen loads traverse your bridge. The graphics are cool and there isn’t too much by way of technical input data required. Prepare to lose some hours playing this though!
