ASSIGNMENT 02 FULL SIZE FINAL REPORT OPTION 2. IN SITU NAME: ZEYU LI (VICKY) STUDENT NUMBER: 634091 Timber frames require diagonal bracing or shear planes for lateral stability and may qualify as heavy timber construction if used with noncombustible, fire-resistive exterior walls.(Ching 2008, page5.03) Masonry---Bricks

Masonry walls consist of modular building blokcs bonded together with mortar to form walls that are durable, fire-resistant, and structurally efficient in compression. The most common types of masonry units are bricks, which are heat-hardened units.(Ching 2008 Page5.14) Steel

Cement/concrete

3_CONSTRUCTION SYSTEM AND FUNCTION OF MEMBERS

路Frame construction system Exterior walls: protect shield against the weather for the interior spaces of a building. their construction should control the passage of heat, infiltrating air, sound, moisture, and water vapor. The exterior skin, which may be either applied to or integral with the wall structure,should be durable and resistant to the weathering effects of sun, wind, and rain. (Ching 2008 page5.02) The interior walls (partitions): subdivide the space within a building,may be either structural or nonloadbearing, their construction should be able to support the desired finish materials, provide the required degree of acoustical separation, and accommodate when necessary the distribution and outlets of mechanical and electrical services. (Ching 2008 page5.02) Stud: studs carry vertical loads while sheathing or diagonal bracing stiffens the plane of the wall.(Ching 2008, page5.03) Cross bracing: resist shear loads. Nogging: horizontal members which run parallel with the top and bottom plates between the studs and used to straighten the centre of the wall and provide lateral

Certain numbers of noggings are required depending upon the stud height.(Abis 2013, Nogging) Prefabricated wood trusses: used in the place of dimension lumber to frame floors because its generally lighter and more dimensionally stable than sawn lumber, are manufactured in greater depths and lengths, and can span longer distances.(Ching 2008, page4.33) Joist: the horizontal members that span two walls and/or beams—have to carry the weight of the walls, people, furniture, appliances and other stuff. 4_PHOTOS OF BUILDING PROGRESS (Address:329 Tregutha Way, Newport,

ASSIGNMENT 02 FULL SIZE FINAL REPORT OPTION 2. IN SITU NAME: ZEYU LI (VICKY) STUDENT NUMBER: 634091 7_STAGE OF WORKS. DESCRIPTION AND IMPLICATIONS

Week 3 ~ Week 5: wall system Week 6 ~ Week 8: floor system (because they’ve already finished the ground floor, the floor in here means first floor and second floor) Stage of Works: frame stage. This stage is important because the either wall or first(second) floor support all the dead loads(roof etc.) and live loads (people, furnitures etc.) around the house, and it decides the stability of a building. It have to resist the shear load, such as wind or earthquakes. CONCLUSION Above content are the obervation I noticed during these 6 weeks, I’ve learnt many things about materials, constructural types and structural systems of wall and floor systems from tracing a full-scale process.
