SM-1419 Suspension Bridge Apparatus

The apparatus is mainly a bridge deck having hangers suspended along the length in such a way that flexible steel cable is constrained to be a parabolic curve. The suspension cable pass over the pulleys and the weights are attached to obtain the stable condition of  the bridge.

The bridge loaded is through a number of weights, each having a specific loading value. Point loads can be applied by means of known weights, which can be positioned easily on the bridge deck.
