  10. 10. Tips • Hollow Tube better for Compression • Solid Rod better for tension • Consider Forced strength Ratio, (if you are capable of holding one hundred pounds and only holding thirty, you are using 30/100 of your potential) • Base Charge for each new type of member (keep materials as standardized as possible to help control costs). • Arch Bridge’s strength comes from compression (think Hoover damn, curved to push pressure to sides). Hollow tubes are more efficient in compression
