Structures, such as bridges, are anything that can support it's own weight in addition to weight of other objects against gravity. There are two kinds of forces provided by weight: compression and tension. In order to increase the capacity of the bridge there are many ways in which most of them are non-economical. One way is to reduce its self weight which can be well achieved by using less weight materials like paper. Building with inherently weak materials like paper quickly leads to a close consideration of the structural elements and properties of materials. A bridge is designed only with the help of paper. Joints,columns,pavements everything is made using paper only. Everything is designed rolling paper tightly with fevicol. It is a perfect example of design of joints & compressive and tensile members and testing them to their ultimate limit.
