    I was out looking at houses once again and happened to drive by a cool bridge. I pulled over and shot off a few pics.

    here's one of them.

    a car shot would be sick on there

    How long did it take engineers to realise that cross brace lattices do NOTHING ?

    :shrug:

    About 2 seconds if that? I doubt that was a pure structural decision. Then again, I don't build targets. ;)

    "How long did it take engineers to realise that cross brace lattices do NOTHING ?"

    I beg to differ - cross brace lattices can add up to 75% of weight to the overall structure - thus effectively giving gravity that extra "hand hold" to keep the structure on the ground. Build it without cross brace lattices - there's a good chance your bridge will float off into space. Escape velocity not withstanding, of course. :bs:

    All physics aside - cool pic!
