I am working on a project where I need to build a model suspension bridge.
the length of the suspension bridge has to be 1000mm (1m), the portion of the deck between the two towers is 700mm (.7m).
the height of the deck from the ground is 200mm (.2m). I wanna know what should be the height of the tower above the deck to keep it most stable.
the bridge would be loaded with point loads varying from 10kgs to 20kgs.
the material to be used is ice-cream sticks(popstickle sticks) only.
I would be highly obliged with a speedy reply, i.e the formula.
