This video illustrates a section of the bridge during a center-span lift, and the stress on the members is why the bridge appears to wobble. This is not what it would look like to the naked eye, it is magnified 400x to show stress points. So in reality, the bridge moves 400 times less than as it appears in the video. One of the main reasons to making this video is to find the points on the bridge that are under the most stress during a lift. It is seen that points along the curvature of the connection points experience large amounts of stress, so these are the points that the research team are interested in. In the future, strain tests will be taken on at these points to see how they react under fatigue.
