Bridge Breaking Competition

The University of Maine ASCE Student Chapter will be hosting a Bridge Breaking Competition at the 64th Maine Transportation Conference. Challenge your co-workers, consultants, contractors, and students! Show off your engineering skills! This year, Maine Better Transportation Association will be providing a prize to the first place winner.

The Bridge Kit MUST be purchased ($10) from the Maine ASCE Student Chapter or through the 64th Maine Transportation Conference registration. The kits will be numbered and cross-referenced at the competition. Retrofit bridges will not qualify for the Award but can be broken for the fun of it, if time allows.

Bridge Kits are available for purchase from:

The kits will be mailed upon request, but no earlier than November 5, 2014, so bridges can be painstakingly designed and built in advance. Bridges will first be weighed, and then tested to failure in a test frame. The most efficient (strength to weight ratio) bridge will win!
