Flagship: Day 2 Reflection

For Day 2 of the SST-NTU Flagship Camp, as my group had already finished the construction of our water tower yesterday, we could immediately test the strength of it. Surprisingly, it managed to withstand 480N of weight despite being slightly slanted to one side. 

However, I believe that this was made possible due to the amount of reinforcement we put in the centre of our structure. Our idea was to make it as sturdy as possible in order to act as the 'spine' of the tower, similar to how the human body works.

Unfortunately, when we placed a 500N weight on our water tower, it started to shake and the weights eventually began tilting to one side. Nonetheless, I am proud of our efforts in building a somewhat successful water tower for this project.
