Have you ever seen a Water Bridge over a river?.........

Pretty Cool !

  

Even after you see it, it is still hard to believe!

Water Bridge in Germany . What a feat!

Six years, 500 million euros, 918 meters long......... now this is engineering!

This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and West Germany, as part of the unification project. It is located in the city of Middleburg, near Berlin . The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.

To those who appreciate engineering projects, here's a puzzle for you armchair engineers and physicists.

Did that bridge have to be designed to withstand the additional weight of ship and barge traffic, or just the weight of the water?

  1. Its designed to withstand the weight of the water .An object that sinks displaces an amount of fluid equal to the its capacity .hope this is the answer.
