The winner is the team that designs and produces a scale model of the bridge with the best performance in a destruction test of all the respective scale models.
The presentation, prize ceremony and the final destruction tests took place on stage during the SAMPE France 2019 Technical Days held on 28 and 29 November in Nantes with 350 participants from the top innovative French companies.
The bridge was made from carbon fibers and epoxy resin supplied by SAMPE France. A very simple architecture: compression bars and yarns under tension. The bat wings and the deck of the bridge complete the structure.
The ladies are undergraduate students involved in Physics Measurements training. They really did well in terms of accuracy for all the practical duties in this project.
