Popsicle-Stick Bridge Testing 2011

At the 7th DLSU Bridge Building Competetion, the bridges were tested using a UTM at De La Salle University-Manila CTM Lab. Two steel bars were placed on the bridge deck. Then a steel frame was placed on top of the steel bars. The load was applied on the steel frame until failure. Date of Testing: March 19, 2011. This competetion was organized by the Civil Engineering Society and was participated by students from PLM, TIP, Mapua, EARIST and DLSU.

Watch the video below. The failure of this bridge was brittle. Kaboom!
