How do we test bridges?

Testing-1.png

Set the bridge on the tester between the two structure support. 

Slide the wood-block into the bridge on top of its roadbed. The wood-block will have a hole to fit over the threaded rod's top, as seen in the image.

Place the washer over the rod, tighten the nut.

Slowly turn the force wheel counterclockwise. 

Apply force until the structure is broken.
