Bridge Models: Tacoma Narrows Suspension Bridge

The Tacoma Narrows bridge was originally a bridge across Puget Sound in Washington State. However, after just 4 months the bridge spectacularly collapsed in a windstorm. Our model of the bridge incorporates changeable decks, one of which will deform in a similar way to the original Tacoma Narrows bridge, and another which demonstrates the improved deck design that prevents the bridge from collapsing again.
