Second Experiment

For this experiment, the deformation is no longer measured with angles but with lengths in centimeters. The reason being that as the weight is distributed evenly over the web the angle of this transformation would not be correct.


At first glance, we can say that the most resistant web is the first kind, followed by the second and finally the third. Although with 400g and 500g the lengths of the last two patterns are the same (one centimeter and just over one centimeter) it still appears that the second shape is more resistant than the third.

The results of the second part of the second experiment are very different than the first. On the contrary, this graph tells us that the most fragile web is the second shape by afar. And the most resistant by afar is the third shape aka our spider web. This web does not surpass one centimeter.

Here, the most resistant web is clearly the first shape. Between 100g and 400g the third pattern is strangely the less solid. But, from 400g to 600g the second becomes the least efficient.

Second experiment results:

On this graph, we have all the results of the second experiment. Over all, the strongest web in this experiment is the first pattern, and the weakest is once again the second. However for an unknown reason the strongest web is in fact web three with twelve attachment points. Just like the first test we may note that as the attachment point increases the angle of deformation decreases.
