USING THE METHOD FOR 15 ROWS THEN INCORPORATING A STANDING BRICK AFTER EVERY THREE FLAT ROWS TO INCREASE HEIGHT. BY EMPLOYING A SMALLER diameteT enables the faster speed in height with less materials. When the diameter shifts the blocks are no longer able to perfectly fit onto the circle and therefore the weight no longer direetly goes down.

The more crossing over there is on the surface, the more stable it is.

Also the more overlapping towards the connecters the stronger the bond and therefore can sustain the most force.

WEEK 1 Load path: The direction the force goes towards the ground Masonry:The craft or occupation of a mason. Compression:To press together; force into less space Reaction force: Point load: A direct force and the path it leads. Beam:Any of various relatively long pi eces of metal, wood, stone, etc.,manu factured or shaped especially for use a s rigid members orparts of structures or machines.

WEEK 2 Structural joint: The method in which the edges are connected. Stability: the state or quality of being stable, firmness in position. Tension: the act of stretching or straining, the state of being stretched or strained. Frame:A rigid structure formed of relatively slender pieces, joi ned so as to surround sizable empty spaces ornonstructural pa nels, and generally used as a major support in building or engin eering works,machinery, furniture, etc. Bracing: strengthening; invigorating, of, pertaining to, or serving as a brace. Column: rigid, relatively slender, upright support, composed of relatively few pieces. A decorative pillar, most often composed of stone and typically having a cylindrical or polygonalshaft with a capital and usually a base.
