Is it mathematically possible to build an arch bridge of 55 kilometers in absence of supportive
Often, the surrounding scientific inventions are left obscured and taken for granted. I too
did not exactly know of the science behind bridges, one of the most widely relied civil
engineering model. My curiosity on the factors that play a role in building a sturdy bridge
sparked in one of my CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) activities, Science Club. Although it
started in an academic but more entertaining mini-competition, I was burning to know more.
To pursue this interest, I went on to do more research on bridges. Initially, my thought
was that intact bridges are easily as long as the forces are well spread. However, with just a bit of
research, it quickly brought me to a realization and appreciation for the complexity of the
development of bridges. Modern bridges are not only dependent on its material but also its
structural shape, thickness, length, and more.
