Fall 2014 - Spaghetti Bridge Final Testing

Follow by Email
Undergraduate students in the Statics course offered at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) are required to build a spaghetti bridge as a final project. In this video, the students conduct the final test of their spaghetti bridge designs. A special thanks to teaching assistants Shafin Haque and Luis Varela. Students must design a spaghetti bridge as a final project 00:30 - Bridges are weighed and measured 00:43 - The bridge must withstand a 2.5 lbf weight for 5 minutes 01:16 - All twenty bridge designs were unique 01:32 - Now lets break some bridges!!! 10:42 - Next Semester the load will be increased to 5 lbf Now lets break some bridges!!!


Crust Eb : I think it was unfair @ 5:13 because he dropped it.

Jemar Cabellada : who else get mad of what he had done @ 5:13 😠

Oreo Sauce : 1987: Flying cars in the future 2014: Spaghetti Bridges

Nigga Chosqui : 5:13 if that was my bridge, i would prob kill him a spaghetti knife..

YGK : "hey where you at?" "in a room full of spaghetti bridges"

Harsh Pandey : Watch his biasness at 09:23, he just dropped the weights which is not the correct way to do it.

་༄꧉Aji `Togey꧉࿐ ་ : 5:13 🤔🤔🤔 6:58 😒😒😒

Cristian Gruber S : Loco... Nose que estoy haciendo con mi vida. Ahora debería estar estudiando o haciendo algo productivo pero estoy dispuesto terminar el vídeo.

Dave Pawson : Block the camera. Proceeds to drop the weight. Real professional.

Gary Losa : This is not how an engineer would put weight in this test/competition. Carelessly dropping weight would result in different kN.

medvidekmisa : that man putting weights on is not doing it right...and in 5:20 he basicly THROWS the weight on makin it many times worse...not fair...also some of weight clinges thats also stress, sideways stress...also cant he prepare it better so he dont have to connect ends of chains everytime? some hooks maybe? is this some university of retards? because I like the idea of making bridges but this asshole ruines it totally...making it unfair

Laughing Man : Highly inconsistent method evaluation. Some weights were gently placed, others thrown on. This dude knows next to nothing about consistency in the scientific method or anything about inertia. What should have been done was use a standard platform suspended beneath each bridge which could have been gently loaded by stacking the weights. A variety of weights should also be used to determine the failure point with greater accuracy. Someone needs to fire this cunt. His brain is made of spaghetti.

filthywishdragon : Whoever chose this music ...... Should be shot

Богдан Немченко : тоже ищешь русский комментарий ?))

Guwop Cheop : Why am i watching this

l : Next time dont bring a doucebag to put on the weights..

Carl Manis : what about at 5:13 he drop the weight

Nabre Labre : So are these glued together or do you put a drop of boiling water on a joint?

Iron Bridge : “Collapse of the Genoa bridge, Italy” - 2018

Виталий Хабаров : Я ждал что по мосту поедут грузовики))

DAVID Forgeferrugem : 5:16 ele solta e dá um tranco ...não é justo...

CHRIS WRIGHT : Try and put those weights on a little more gentle bud

Василий Скрябин : Чел не знает о динамических нагрузках.

noes noes : just a reminder that people are complaining that this dude unfairly breaking *spaghetti* bridges

drkjk : Is point loading really the best way to determine overall strength of the design?

Gau28 : 8:15 the laugh

Putin’s Body Gaurd : Someone should attach weight to his balls and drop them then see how he feels. And then kill him

Vladimir Mironov : Конструкция изначально просчитана на приложение усилия по центру конструкции . В реальности все сложнее . Попробуйте сместить груз к краю например . Или в бок от оси фермы .

антон магарн : Курсовая по строительству мостов интересные соревнования

Gustavo Encarnaçao : He can't load the bridges with assimetric loads. When he puts the chains in one side of the first chain.

Richard Smout : Should suspend a bucket and gradually fill it with sand for a more accurate test

Nick Vivaldi : Mala gestión del experimento.

Ярослав Старк : Даааа, достоверность теста убивает. Нельзя взять гидравлическую установку постепенно увеличивающую нагрузку с указателем точного веса.

Askari : Who else thought ocean man was fixing to start 0:00

Katzenbär Multis : Poly Bridge.


PHOTON : is there no limit to the amount of material you can use?? cos i see a unfair use of the materials

За русь! : Как только начал смотреть заржал что за ботаники)

H C : way too crude way of adding weight.... all that time gone into making the bridges and the tester didnt even spend 2 seconds on the testing method...

Oleg Sigal : СОПРОМАТ на макаронах :)

Dont Me : Wait.. This is a thing?

Stepan C. D. Traista : Im going to sleep soon 22:00 3:00 watching a 2014 video about spaghetti bridges.

Clarrence Enconado : When mum asked where are the pasta Me: it's now a bridge mom.

Suchira Laknath : Thank you for these videos.These are so helpful to students like us.Thank you so much!

Travis Johnson : how about some commentary. anything. even a text crawl providing any information

Fernando Sala : The Flying Spaghetti Monster is very pleased. Science + spaghetti + reggae, very well done guys & gals.

Ruina : Не знал что такое есть

CHILL FROST : *NOBODY TOUCHA MAH SPAGHAT* like the music hehe 😎 Meeeh the guy who dropped the weights.. meeeeeh

Jon Saw : Where can I find the rules and manuals for this type of competition?
