CREATING THE  MODEL:     PRIMARY  STRUCTURES:      -­‐    Horizontal:  Beams,  concrete  slab,  lintels      -­‐    Ver5cal:  exis5ng  load  bearing  walls      

SECONDARY STRUCTURES:      -­‐    Horizontal:  colorbond  cladding,  5mber  flooring,  plasterboard  ceiling     lining,  skylights      -­‐    Ver5cal:  external  zinc  wall  cladding  and  colorbond,     automa5c  doors,  windows,  balusters  along  ramp      


CREATING THE  MODEL:    


TIMBER WORKSHOP  ACTIVITY:   GROUP  1:     WEIGHT:  160KG   DEFLECTION:  35MM               THE  PRESSURE  STARTED  TO  CREATE  A  TWIST  

GROUP 2:     WEIGHT:  250KG   DEFLECTION:  50MM               SIMILAR  TO  THE  PREVIOUS  GROUP    

ONTO THE    VERTICAL  STRUCTURES,  

THE  VERTICAL  STRUCTURES  STARTED  TO    

THIS IS  DUE  TO  THE  COMPRESSION  FORCES    

CHANGE DUE  TO  PRESSURE  OF  THE     COMPRESSION  FORCES  ON  THE  TOP  OF  THE   STRUCTURE  AND  THE  TENSILE  FORCES  ON  THE   BOTTOM  END  

ON THE  TOP  OF  THE  STRUCTURE  AND  THE     TENSILE  FORCES  ON  THE  BOTTOM  END  


TIMBER WORKSHOP  ACTIVITY:   GROUP  3:     WEIGHT:  590KG   DEFLECTION:  55MM               DUE  TO  THE  WAY  THE  BEAMS  WERE  STACKED  

GROUP 4  (MY  GROUP):     WEIGHT:  300KG   DEFLECTION:  95MM       WE  CREATED  AN  I  BEAM  FOR  OUR  DESIGN.  TO     JOIN  THE  BEAMS  TOGETHER  WE  ADDED  SCREWS   TO  THE  TOP  END  AND  TO  BOTTOM.  THE  SPACING   BETWEEN  EACH  SCREW  ON  TOP  WAS  20CM  AND   WE  HAD  6  SCREWS.  ON  THE  BOTTOM  END  WE    

THIS DESIGN  WITHSTOOD  THE  MOST  WEIGHT    

ONLY HAD  4  SCREWS.  THIS  WAS  DONE  TO    

THE SIDE  BOARDS  ADDED  SUPPORT  

CREATE AN  EFFICIENT  STRUCTURE  THAT   RESPONDS  TO  BOTH  TENSILE  AND  COMPRESSION    

FORCES AND  DOESN'T’T  CAUSE  CRACKS
