Beam Design - Activity 3.2.6

In this project we were to choose fitting beams for the situations we were given.














I thought this was hard, but kind of got it at the end.

Beam Analysis Shortcuts- Activity 3.2.4

In this project, we were to analyze beams, but using much easier equations.





















I actually really liked this project. It was much easier than the others.

Beam Analysis - Activity 3.2.3

In this project, we were to analyze beams.




I found it very difficult, but by the end I mostly understood it.

Loads

In this project we were to research the appropriate type of roof joist for our library as well as a Chicago-area school.
I got 16K7 for the interior and 16K2 for the exterior.
I didn't like this project because it was math-y, but I now feel like I understand the concept, which is good. :)

Keystone library

In this project, we were to create a cool-looking library out of an old warehouse.




I really liked this project. I loved being able to renovate the warehouse and making it look cool. I also really liked the concept of a green roof in the library.
