Bridges must be built strong enough to safely support their own weight as well as the weight of the people and vehicles that pass over it. The bridge must also withstand natural occurrences that include weathering, earthquakes, strong winds, and freezing and thawing.

The construction and testing of model bridges promotes the study and application of fundamental principles physics and also helps high school students develop "hands on" skills through bridge construction. By participating in the Bridge Building Competition students get a flavor of what it is to be an Engineer, designing structures to a set of specifications and then seeing them perform their function. They are also provided with an academically-oriented extracurricular activity which is recognized school-wide.

The Tacoma Narrows Bridge - The original Tacoma Narrow Bridge, at all stages of its short life, was very active in the wind. Its nickname of Galloping Gertie was earned from its vertical motions in even very modest winds. Its collapse on November 7, 1940 attracted wide attention at the time and ever since, due in part to its capture on film.
The Koror-Babeldaob Bridge - The K-B Bridge was a 790 ft span concrete box girder bridge, built using the cantilever method in the late 1970s. It collapsed suddenly one evening in September 1996, after it had stood for almost 20 years. These pictures were scanned from postcards available at the Palau international airport.
The Tay Bridge Disaster - At approximately 7:15 p.m.on the stormy night of 28 December 1879, the central navigation spans of the Tay bridge collapsed into the Firth of Tay at Dundee, taking with them a train, 6 carriages and 75 souls to their fate.

Pontifex is the official sequel to a freeware game in which you design and test bridges. Pontifex uses a complex physics engine called the Immortal Engine which allows for many different types of bridges to be built. Once the design is completed you can test your bridge by sending a train across and watch as the train either passes over safely or plummets into the river below. The 3D engine lets you view your bridge from any angle including a first-person train view. Many different types of levels are included, from simple to complex, and a level editor lets you make your own levels to trade with other people.
