    Bridge Write Up The problem that we have is we need to find a bridge that will fill a gap that is 12" long, and 2.5" wide.

Some constraints that we have are no more than 10% of the bridge may consist of "bulky" members made from two pieces of balsa wood.

The engineers get that uneasy feeling because once the bridge is built it's there for a long time, and an unfortunate error of judgment is on view for all to see. Much...
