Specification of Shape of a Bridge

by Janelle Wilcox


Submitted : Spring 2013

Consider a bridge like the Sunshine Skyway. Note that there are essentially linear ramps and a parabolic curve at the top. The goal of this project is to specify the shape (i.e. the vertical position of the roadway as a function of horizontal distance) for a similar bridge.
