ts structures: load-testing tied arch bridges

The class worked in four teams of 15, sharing between them all of the required design,
analysis, detailing, fabrication and testing. Only a very schematic diagram was given to the
class to start them off, setting the general form of the bridge as well as  some ‘performance
criteria’ pertaining to proportion and load/area.
