Black Suit Infrastructure Inc this report evaluates a possible design of a proposed observation deck at Mount Tamborine through a 1:100 scale model. It is required to be used for general sightseeing, and also for extreme sports such as bungee jumping, BASE jumping and hang-glider launching. In particular the report highlights: • Current related bridge structures already in use • Methods of materials testing • Materials and design research and selection • The related costs, dimensions and load capacity of the bridge It was decided that balsa wood and a Pratt truss would be the most appropriate materials and design to use for this application. This was due to both materials being strong, effective and cheap, allowing the raw materials cost to remain low while also preventing over engineering.
