" What about this one, not that crazy but I had never seen this construction form before "



Hi Alwin :wave:



I dunno. L:

It looks pretty CRAZY to me ! :Crazy:



I've not seen that exact construction before either. :us:

It kinda looks like 1/2 'cable-stay' ...

...& 1/2 (upside-down) 'suspension-bridge' ... with the DECK on TOP !



Well I never !!  :P



It's got LOADS of 'triangles' so probably stayed up OK ...

... until they DYNAMITED ! it. :f:



:brill:



Si.

They just drew Cremona's plan ( the newest in statics' calculation then ) and made a Fink truss out of it. Appomattox High Bridge is another example of this German's technique.
