Bridge Models: Suspension Bridge

This suspension bridge model is a model of a typical suspension bridge such as the Brooklyn or Golden gate Bridge. There are two main cables that are tied on each end to anchorages. Attached to these main cables are smaller cables that hook onto the deck. When completed, the model can demonstrate deflection on the deck of a bridge.
