In the second short term project I looked closer into the subject, how the bike carrier could be further improved. The carrier should be fixed on the head tube, so the weight won’t get out of balance while steering. The first results of the 2d calculations and more 3d calculations inspired me to do the…

This top view calculation in 2d is really enlightening for us as it shows that the construction of the bridge model has to hold itself by building a ring coming from two sides of the obstacle frames.


As our bridge is coming along we are trying to find parameters in the calculations we make. We are trying to draw conclusions which will help us as we build the actual prototype.

After multiple calculations in CAD (Rhino/Grasshopper) is this construction the outcome. We don’t know if we are going to copy the entire construction when we are building it in wood. Perhaps we don’t going the construct the upper bow at the beginning of the lowest fixation point. We think that this bow is only useful if the construction is made out one piece and not out of multiple wooden sticks.
