Design Rationale For Bridge

1. Overall design
The bridge itself followed the Warren design as it was relatively simple to make and is often employed in numerous bridges around the world.

2. Bridge base
The base of the bridge is built with supports running diagonally to create a stable shape. A four sided polygon would cause instability in the bridge structure, and thus the addition of such supports

3. Bridge anchor
The ends of the bridge were made not to slip as that would cause the bridge to break very readily.

4. Bridge joints
The joints were glued together to ensure there are little to no air bubbles present as that would drastically reduce the joint strength as the glue would not have as great of a surface area to act on.
