- History of Truss Bridges - use this link to research truss design and how they work. Apply this thinking to your bridge design and create a drawing showing how the forces are distributed as well as showing the tension and compression of each member and your prediction for how it will work. If there are changes to make to your bridge you may do that at the end of this exercise.
