Knight Moves

UCF tops out all others in stiffness for 2009...though a bit of luck for the Chivalrous Vatos in Orlando??? (lucky at 0.27"??? uh no.)

UCF’s first place win in the stiffness category was a bit fortunate, Chopra said. A dice roll determines where judges place weights on the bridge. Fortunately, the two weights totaling 2,500 lbs. were placed on the strongest parts of the UCF team’s bridge. That reduced the bridge’s overall aggregate deflection, or the total amount that it moved under the applied load.

So cool we'll call 'em culo! UCF Knights Link here
