World's First Carbon Nanofiber Bridge Debuts
UD Engineering students developed a bridge design that combined innovative sandwich structural design with braided fabric composite materials and carbon nanofibers. The carbon nanofiber bridge won two prizes in the Contest: 2nd place in testing in the category of "braided bridge, kit materials", and 2nd place in the student poster contest. The bridge supported a load of 2,136 lbs. and weighed only 0.965 lbs., for an "efficiency ratio" of 2214:1.
