Budding plastics professionals build stable bridges


Students designed various bridges at this year's SAMPE Bridge Building Contest and tested them for stability. In addition to the stability, the design, the innovation, the aesthetics and the poster were also awarded.

17 groups and 3-4 students from all over Switzerland participated in this year's competition. At the final in FHNW Brugg-Windisch, the students determined the most stable bridge with a 3-point bending test. The team "Pontem Lastrode" at the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil won the competition with a maximum force of 3,790 N.

Furthermore, there were different awards for aesthetics, design, innovation and the posters shown.
