About WPBD 2011
The West Point Bridge Designer 2011 is now considered to be obsolete, is no longer supported, and cannot be used to enter the West Point Bridge Design Contest. We continue to offer it for download, for the benefit of teachers who have integrated this version of the software into their math, science, and technology curricula.
