This report is a compilation of our understanding and analysis based on the precedent studies conducted, construction method and the design of our truss bridge. The report started off with the precedent studies of Pratt Truss and analysis of our designed truss and tests. Sets of testing results and development of our designated bridge through several trial, error experiments and failure analysis were recorded and included to the report. The analysis of the strength of the bridge during the tests was also recorded to improve the efficiency of the bridge. The end of the report will be the calculations of the individual case studies.

San Remo Fettuccine

Bundle of 10 sticks of 5cm fettuccine

Prego Fettuccine

Force is exerted on the bundle

The testing is ended when the bundle breaks

The table above shows the results obtained for the compressive strength of different brands of fettuccine


A single stick of 5cm length fettuccine is tied to a luggage scale

The fettuccine is pulled until it breaks

The table above shows the results obtained for the tensile strength of different brands of fettuccine
