2012 West Point Bridge Design Contest

By on January 18, 2012 -- Modified on December 9, 2017

It’s that time of year again, and the 11th annual West Point Bridge Design (WPBD Contest) Contest is starting. Registration is free and open to anyone, so I encourage you to try your hand in this fun contest. The software for the contest is simple to use, and actually is a great tool for learning how bridges work, and how forces are spread out in a given bridge design.

Here is the link to the main site:

Is it just me or is the slenderness check new for this year? I did not get much of a chance to play around with the 2011 version, so I am not sure if it is brand new or not. The slenderness check caught me by surprise and is somewhat annoying.

I’d love to hear your comments about the program and how you are doing in the contest.
