Strength of Spaghetti Bridge Trusses (Video)

1
80

Interestingly, uncooked spaghetti has been used extensively to demonstrate the behavior of structures under the action of externally applied loads.


Investigations have usually included;

(1) Varying the truss configuration to see which one that can resist the greatest load

(2) Varying the span

(3) Increasing the number of spaghetti strands, etc

In this video, a spaghetti bridge was loaded until it fails at a load of 31kg.
