Basswood Bridges

Abstract

The Elementary Engineering Design course for freshmen students at Purdue University

Calumet consists of two components: one ME and one EE. Due to the two part structure and in

order to expose the students to the faculty, it is also team taught. The course counts as two

credits, with the format one hour lecture and three hours lab. The basswood bridge is the major

project of the ME half and counts for one quarter of the total course grade. The object, as is

usual with bridge projects, is to design, build and test a truss bridge having a high strength to

weight ratio. The design process includes statics analysis in combination with the tensile and

compressive properties of the basswood. The details of the project from initial design to final

testing are provided.

Background

At Purdue University Calumet (PUC), freshmen engineering students have been required to take

the course Elementary Engineering Design (ENGR190) for over three decades. The goals of

the course are:

challenge inherent in design engineering through the medium of

individual design and construction projects.

2. To provide insight into what design engineers do.

The course is a two credit course that consists of a one hour lecture and a three hour laboratory.

Every semester the course is given. The Fall semester, which is the first semester for a typical

freshman entering college directly from high school, will have two to three sections. Each

section can handle 25 students, so for the Fall a maximum of 75 students can take the course.

For the Spring semester, the course is scheduled for late afternoon or evening to accommodate

students who work full time. One to two sections are usually on the schedule, so up to 50

students can fulfill the requirement in the Spring.

For many years, the laboratory projects were strictly mechanical in nature: a basswood bridge

and a mousetrap spring driven car. Since the projects were in a single discipline, the course was

taught by a single instructor for both the lectures and laboratories, with additional instructors

added to laboratory sections as needed. Around ten years ago, it was decided to split the course

in two, with half being oriented to mechanical engineering and the other half to electrical

engineering. This made sense since the Department of Engineering offered majors in

mechanical, electrical and computer engineering, and student surveys indicated a desire for an

electrical component in the course. In recent years, the single Department has been divided into

a Department of Mechanical Engineering and a Department of Electrical and Computer

Engineering. Therefore, it was decided to team teach the course using instructors from the

Page 13.248.2

different disciplines. The first time this was tried, five instructors were used with each teaching

for 3 weeks. The three from ME had expertise in structures, heat transfer and fluid flow, and

materials. Those from EE/CompE specialized in circuit design and electronic digital systems.

Each professor gave lectures and designed accompanying laboratory exercises. The use of five

instructors meant frequent changes in personnel and teaching methods. These changes were too

many for the students and the feedback asked for fewer instructors. Based on student surveys, a

professor from ME and one from EE were chosen to further develop the course.

Learning Objectives

Once the team teaching concept was established, specific learning objectives were set so that the

goals could be met. By the end of the course, each student should be able to:

1. Solve simple statics problems.

2. Analyze forces on trusses.

3. Design a basswood bridge, using statics analysis and material properties, that will have a

high strength to weight ratio.

4. Show that the design process is iterative in nature.

5. Write a technical laboratory report.

6. Determine simple types of equations that can represent a set of data, using x-y, semilog

and log-log plots.

7. Use EXCEL for analyzing data. Make x-y, semilog and log-log plots.

8. Solve simple DC circuits for voltage, current and power. This will include the use of

Ohms Law, series and parallel reduction, passive sign convention and Kirchoffs

voltage and current laws.

9. Simulate simple DC circuits in PSpice.

10. Design timer circuits based on the LM555 timer.

11. Construct Truth Tables necessary for small scale design problems.

12. Implement logic functions with AND OR and NOT gates.

13. Perform longhand binary arithmetic operations including addition, subtraction using

complements, and multiplication.

The focus of this paper is to describe the bridge project from inception to final testing and

evaluation.

A basswood bridge is to be designed, constructed, tested and critiqued. The design parameters

for the bridge are:

Design Parameters

(a) Truss type bridge consisting of two vertical parallel truss structures for the sides of the bridge

with necessary cross members and bracing to hold the sides in place.

(b) Top and bottom chords of the truss structures are to be parallel.

(c) Bridge is to span a 22 inch space between supports, so the length of the bridge should

be 24 inches.

(d) No bridge floor is required.

(e) A 3 inch x 3 inch block must be able to pass through the bridge with clearance.

(f) The load will be applied at the middle of the bridge using one or two or inch diameter

steel rods.

(g) Maximum design load for credit is 100 lb.

Page 13.248.4

(h) Best bridge is one with the highest Performance Value (PV) defined as L/W where L

is the test load (lb) and W is the weight of the bridge (gm).

Prerequisite Knowledge

The level of the course has been set to allow both those taking calculus and those taking pre-

calculus to succeed. Therefore, all the problem sets and designs can be calculated using

elementary algebra and similar triangles. Knowledge of trigonometry, while useful, is not a

requirement. By doing this, an attempt is made to encourage any student to major in

engineering.

Class Schedule

In the Topics Covered section the full semesters lectures and laboratories were given. While

there are only four lectures necessary to learn how to make the bridge, it takes a full seven weeks

to finish the bridge project. Additional time may be required, if the bridge needs to be retested.

In Week 3 an assignment to design a bridge is given. The check-in and review of the design

takes place in the laboratory session of Week 4. The next week (5) an experiment is done in lab.

While this is being done, a truss completion check-in is made. Only one truss is to be

constructed. The check-in prevents erroneous construction. In Week 6, the completed bridge is

checked-in and tested. The following week (7) the bridge critique is due. The critique will be

delayed if the bridge needs to be retested. Retesting can be done if the bridge fell apart due to

glue failure, or there was a bad piece of wood that broke long before it should have.

For the introductory lecture (Appendix A), the students do not need knowledge of vector algebra.

In recent years, many of the students have taken physics in high school and do have this

understanding. Concepts covered are: (1) Parallelogram law; (2) Equilibrant; (3) Components of

a vector or force; (4) Determination of tension or compression in a member; (5) Definition of a

truss; (6) Free body diagrams; and (7) Method of similar triangles. The use of similar triangles

alleviates the need for using trigonometry and allows students with a variety of mathematical

Page 13.248.5

levels to participate in the project. A number of examples are provided showing how to

determine the forces in members of simple trusses using free body diagrams. Details for Lecture

1 are found in Appendix A. Problem Set 1 (Appendix B) consists of 2 simple statics problems.

They are similar to the examples given at the end of Lecture 1.

This lecture (Appendix C) is focused on understanding trusses and truss bridges. Three basic

types of bridges are introduced Pratt, Howe and Warren bridges. Bridges to be analyzed have

parallel top and bottom chords. Arch bridges are not allowed for the project. Examples using

free body diagrams to find the forces in the side trusses of each type of bridge are given.

Problem Set 2 (Appendix D) has three truss problems; one for each type of truss.

Lecture 3 (Appendix E) gives the steps needed to design and build the side trusses of the bridge.

The procedure to follow is: (1) Assume a design load; (2) Choose a truss design; (3) Calculate

forces in the members; (4) Determine which size basswood sticks to use, based on the load on

the member and whether it is in tension or compression; (5) Calculate the weight of one truss; (6)

Determine cross member size; (7) Calculate weight of the bridge; (8) Increase load to maximize

PV; and (9) Calculate final design PV. If the final design PV is not 2 or above, the design or

design load needs to be changed.

Additional information about past successful designs, materials allowed, material properties,

construction, and supplies and suppliers are also provided.

Based on this lecture, the student is to design a bridge and have the design checked during the

laboratory of week 4.

The construction lecture (Appendix F) covers all remaining items on the bridge construction,

with recommendations based on what has previously worked. Content includes: (1) Plates for

stressed joints; (2) Plates where loading rods are placed; (3) Cutting plates, (4) Cross members;

(5) Glues and gluing; and (6) Assembly.

Testing of Bridges

Testing Apparatus

Old

A homemade testing apparatus (Figs.1-3) was used until a few years ago. It consisted of a

hydraulic bottle jack for one support, with the other being a wooden stand which was sat on a

bathroom scale. Steel rods were placed in the middle of the bridge bottom. The rods were

attached to a plate under it by hooks and chains or ropes. The jack was pumped up and that side

moved upwards, with a force pulling the bridge in the middle. The scale showed the force on

Page 13.248.6

one support. That number was doubled to find the total load on the bridge. The student

controlled the rate of loading. Since the student was in control, there were many hesitating,

anticipatory and exciting moments while testing. Unfortunately, the load was not always applied

evenly, and sometimes the results were less than expected.

New

A 1000lb Q-Test tensile/compression machine was adapted for use in the bridge testing. The

bottom grip is removed and a support structure put in its place. This structure has a span of 22

inches to accommodate the 24 inch long bridge. The upper grip is replaced with a welded steel

U- shape. On the bottom of the U are openings for insertion of the steel rod(s). The machine is

then put into compression mode at a constant speed. The software controlling the machine is

Testworks 3 from MTS. The loading is much smoother than before and the bridge top stays

parallel to the ground. Since using this new method, the students are happier with the testing

procedure. More A grades have resulted than with the old tester. The new tester is shown in

Page 13.248.7

Figs.4 and 5. Adaptation of this machine is also being used for basswood bridge testing at

Baylor University.2

and U for Holding Steel Rods

A PV value of 2 will receive a numerical grade of 100 or an A. For a PV of 1.75, the grade is a

B or 85. A C or 75 is gotten for a 1.50 value. The numerical grades for PVs from 0.19 and

above are listed in Appendix G. This grade constitutes 65% of the bridge project grade.

Bridge Critique

Once the student has finished testing the bridge, a bridge critique is required. The critique

consists of writing about the good and bad points of design, construction and performance;

stating what would be done differently if another bridge was to be built; and including the design

drawing and calculations. The critique (Appendix H) counts for 5% of the bridge project grade.

One thing that the students need to learn is that an engineer has to make it work. The proof of

the design is in the performance. So attention to the details in every aspect of the project is

required to achieve a high PV. If the bridge is not built squarely, for example, the PV will be

low.

To specifically assess the bridge project, two methods are being used. One is to survey the

students about fulfillment of the course objectives. As an example, the results of the Spring 2006

survey are listed in Table I. The course/learning objectives (1-4) for the bridge project, were

rated on a scale of 1-5, with 5 the highest. The scores ranged from 4.10-4.53, with an overall

average of 4.32, based on a survey population of 49 students.

The other method used is an Outcome Assessment Table. Such tables are prepared for all

courses in order to satisfy ABET requirements.3 For the ME half of the Design course the

Assessment Table (Table II) shows that the level of student achievement for the bridge project

ranges from 82-100%. Learning objectives 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been met. That is in

Page 13.248.8

contradistinction with objective 5, writing a technical laboratory report, which only registered

62% achievement. Thus the bridge project has been successful in helping to meet ABET progam

outcomes a (an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering), c (an

ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs) and e (ability to

identify, formulate and solve engineering problems). It is perhaps the most successful, in terms

of student achievement, of all the ME half activities. It is also, from personal discussions with

students, the most fun and enjoyable of all the ME activities. Alumni, years later, will still talk

about their bridges.

Conclusions

The methodology for designing, constructing and testing a basswood bridge having a high

strength to weight ratio is provided. Students only need to know basic algebra to successfully

complete the project. An outcome assessment shows that the project contributes to fulfilling

ABET progam outcomes a, c and e. Student surveys also show that the learning objectives for

the project are being met.

Most solutions can be found using the method of similar triangles.

Trigonometry can also be used.

Vertical and horizontal components of a slant member do the same thing as

the slant member, so directions of arrow heads are consistent. For instance,

arrow heads are up and to the right for both the slant member and its

Design Parameters

(a) Truss type bridge consisting of two vertical parallel truss structures for

the sides of the bridge with necessary cross members and bracing to

hold the sides in place.

(b) Top and bottom chords of the truss structures are to be parallel.

(c) Bridge is to span a 22 inch space between supports, so the length of the

bridge should be 24 inches.

(d) No bridge floor is required.

(e) A 3 inch x 3 inch block must be able to pass through the bridge with

clearance.

(f) The load will be applied at the middle of the bridge using 1 or 2

or inch diameter steel rods.

(g) Maximum design load for credit is 100 lb.

(h) Best bridge is one with the highest Performance Value (PV) defined as

L/W where L is the test load (lb) and W is the weight of the bridge (gm)

CD 15C 7 1/2 3/16 25 (.24)(7.5) = 1.80

Since only 1 member (DE) is loaded to near its capacity at the 36 lb design load, the load can be

increased. Try a load increase. To determine the increase, notice the ratios of maximum load

(lb) / Force.

AB = 25/15 = 1.67

BC = 20/9 = 2.22

AC = 20/12 = 1.67

BD = 22/12 = 1.83

CE = 35/24 = 1.46

DE = 20/18 = 1.11

CD = 25/15 = 1.67

Increasing the force/load by 1.11 (DE) will not maximize efficiency of loading. Go to 1.67 ratio

(AB, AC & CD). So load is now increased by the factor of 1.67.

18 x 1.67 = 30# On the diagram, forces on the right side of the structure are for a 60# load.

Members will now be more efficiently loaded.

rounded force

Small plate

Plates should extend over each stressed member at joints. Zero force

members should have a little plate of some sort to assist the glue. Plates are

used only on outside of vertical trusses. None on the inside or horizontally on

top or bottom. Exception is the center joint for loading rods.

Note: These are the ideal conditions for minimum weight. Sometimes the

glue does not hold as well as expected and plates have been added to the top

and/or bottom cross members. This adds weight to the bridge but does

provide more support.

Construction

To construct: typical

Cut to 4 length

(b) Cut verticals and glue in. (Put weights on)

(c) After dry, put diagonals to fit loosely. Use glue sparingly. Dont put in

gobs to fill corners, etc. Just enough to hold sticks together for check-in.

If diagonals are forced in, truss may end up warped.

Glue Glue

Page 13.248.59

ENGR 190 BRIDGE DESIGN LECTURE 4

To construct: no verticals

Etc.

Cut diagonals to fit and glue in.

5. Tips

(a) Put wax paper or plastic down on surface, or glue may stick to it.

(b) Put weights on all members being glued, so bottom side will be flat.

(c) Dont put any plates on before checking in one truss.

(d) Glues Elmers Wood Glue, Elmers Por Bond,DAP Wood Glue,

Crazy Glue (gel type or slow setting), Titelock, Jet with or without kicker.

No model airplane glue, no flexible glue, no glue gun.

Jet with kicker and Titelock seem to work best.
