    This video show how to efficiently manage the form works during the construction of buildings or structures. WTF aluminum formwork is a rapid paced construction system for forming cast in place concrete structures. WTF provides aluminum formwork for reinforced concrete construction of single and multi-story buildings and enables the walls and slab to be placed monolithically in the same operation. This increases efficiency, and also produces an extraordinarily strong structure with excellent concrete finish.

    We designed a simple truss bridge. The limitations for the project was the bridge could only be min. 760mm span, max 300m high. Groups were required to design and build a "popsicle stick bridge". The bridge must support a specified design load of 22kg while minimizing overdesign in terms of amount of building material used in the construction. Our bridge had a 780mm span, 200mm height and a calculated limit of 27.5kg. After all was said and done, we capped out at 26kg and a total of 71 popsicle sticks.

  • Extreme Engineering Building Alaskan Highway Mega Structure | World Famous Highway

    The Alaska Highway (also known as the Alaskan Highway, Alaska-Canadian Highway, or ALCAN Highway) was constructed during World War II for the purpose of connecting the contiguous United States to Alaska through Canada. It begins at the junction with several Canadian highways in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, and runs to Delta Junction, Alaska, via Whitehorse, Yukon. Completed in 1942 at a length of approximately 1,700 miles (2,700 km), as of 2012 it is 1,387 mi (2,232 km) long. The difference in distance is due to constant reconstruction of the highway, which has rerouted and straightened out numerous sections. The highway was opened to the public in 1948. Legendary over many decades for being a rough, challenging drive, the highway is now paved over its entire length. An informal system ...

Thinking natural disasters. When you think of natural disasters, there are several that come to mind. You have earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, hurricanes. But, if I show you marshmallows, and I show you toothpicks, and tell you that we’re about to do an experiment that has to do with natural disasters, you’re gonna be, like, “Wait, what? Marshmallows and toothpicks, and natural disasters? But you.” Yeah, we’re going to do that, and I have a challenge for you. This is your challenge: I need you to get a bag of marshmallows, and you know what I love about this, is if your marshmallows ever get stale, the worst thing to do as a scientist is to throw them out. You can reuse anything, rather than making it into garbage. Now, you have a challenge, and your challenge is this, can you create a multi-story structure, a structure, I think, that people can build? So, you have to make it multi-floored, which means more than one or two, I would say. And, here’s the kick, after you build it, it has to be standing. You’re not allowed to hold it up. It has to be free-standing and stable. Stable on the table. Gravity should not be knocking it down. Then, we’re going to simulate an earthquake. So, after you’re done, and you've made this really awesome structure, made out of only marshmallows and toothpicks, we’re going to shake the table, and we’re going to make an earthquake. And you can be, like, “Earthquake.” Just tremble and vibrate. And if your structure is still standing after 30 seconds of your simulated earthquake, you, my dear, are an engineer. And check this out. Your structure’s actually gonna be three-dimensional, and all you need are marshmallows, and all we need are toothpicks. It doesn't matter if they’re the pointy type or the flat type, but, marshmallows are actually cylinder shapes. So, take a marshmallow, take a toothpick, put it through. You kinda have, it looks like you’re going to be working out with it, but you’re not. Now, think about how we can take this, and turn it into a really awesome three-dimensional shape. I’m going to start with this square, and then I’m going to build it up, and turn this square into a cube. Now I’m going to start going higher, just like this. And the beauty about this experiment is, a bag of marshmallows is so inexpensive. Toothpicks, pretty much anybody has toothpicks at home. And, I can learn so many amazing concepts of engineering, building, gravity, center of gravity. You see, you really want this structure to have this amazing centered gravity, so that, If you really think about it, gravity’s always trying to knock you down. In fact, unfortunately, when we get a little older, you start to lean forward, because in your lifetime, your body has done nothing but battle gravity. Which is why our backs arch as we get older. But, now look. I just made a three-dimensional cube. This is exactly one floor high. But the challenge is, could you create multi floors. And, as you get it to go higher and higher, it has to be stable. Stable on the table. You do not want it to be not balanced. The rules are you’re not allowed to hold it up. This is a challenge. And you’re only allowed to use toothpicks; you’re not allowed to get Scotch tape. Okay? That’s the challenge. And, as you can see already, mine is starting to lean. Gravity’s always pulling on it. I’m only gonna make mine three toothpicks high, just because I don’t need to make it bigger. That’s gonna be your challenge. Then, I’m gonna simulate an earthquake, and then, I’m gonna see if my structure is still standing. And, there are other things that you can do, actually, to try to make your structure more stable. Questions like, ‛What happens if you added toothpicks across the squares?’ Something like this. Would this help? Would this help? Science is all about asking questions. Test them, and see what happens. That’s two toothpicks high, and now I’m gonna go three toothpicks high. And by the way, if you don’t have marshmallows, you can actually use gumdrops. My whole point of this is, you can build and learn about structure and engineering and earthquakes, using any materials that you have at home. Uh-oh, gravity. Stop. There we go, it does get a little harder as you get higher. You gotta realize that, and you guys are gonna get frustrated. Starts to look like the leaning Tower of Marshmallows. And, I’m just going to put my toothpicks across the top, and then I’m gonna shake the table, and it’s earthquake time. Will my structure still be standing? Will it fall? I

Engineering: Assembling The Leadenhall Building - The Cheese Grater of London Documentary HD Welcome to DOCUMENTARY HD channel - home of the best documentary films and documentary movies! Built by Laing O'Rourke, designed by Graham Stirk of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and developed by British Land and Oxford Properties,[10] the new Leadenhall Building is 225 m (737 ft) tall, with 48 floors. With its distinctive wedge-shaped profile it has been nicknamed the Cheesegrater,[11][12] a name originally given to it by the City of London Corporation's chief planning officer, Peter Rees, who upon seeing a model of the concept "told Richard Rogers I could imagine his wife using it to grate parmesan. [The name] stuck."[13] The planning application was submitted to the City of London Corporation in February 2004 and was approved in May 2005.[14] In 2006 Scheme Design (RIBA Stage D) started. In a statement made to the London Stock Exchange on 14 August 2008, British Land said it was delaying the project, which was due to start in October 2010.[15] On 22 December 2010, the developer announced the project was moving forward with contracts being signed for the 50/50 joint venture with Oxford Properties.[12] The new tower features a tapered glass façade on one side which reveals steel bracings, along with a ladder frame to emphasize the vertical appearance of the building. It also appears to anchor the tower to the ground, giving a sense of strength. Unlike other tall buildings, which typically use a concrete core to provide stability, the steel megaframe, engineered by Arup, provides stability to the entire structure and is the world's tallest of its kind. The base features a 30 m high atrium. This will be open to the public and will extend the adjacent plaza. The flat side of the building is also encased in glass, and houses the mechanical services – in particular the elevator shafts. These have been turned into an architectural feature in a vein similar to the neighboring Lloyd's building – they deliberately show off the elevator machinery with bright orange painted counterweights and the actual elevator motors themselves. This unusual design's main drawback is the building's relatively small floorspace (84,424 m²) for a building of its height. However, it is hoped that the slanting wedge-shaped design will have less impact on the protected sightline of St Paul's Cathedral when viewed from Fleet Street and the west. The development is expected to cost approximately £286 million.[16] In July 2011, British Land and Oxford Properties announced that Laing O'Rourke was the main contractor for the works of the new Leadenhall Building. Throughout 2011, construction began with the basement floors. By December 2012, the steelwork had progressed up to the fifth mega-level, with topping out expected in February or March. The glass cladding had also begun to rise. By June 2013, the steelwork of the building was completely topped out with the glass cladding covering almost half the building. The construction of the building was the subject of an episode of the Super Skyscrapers documentary series by the American television channel PBS in February 2014.[17] In November 2014 two bolts on the fifth floor failed in-service and dropped to ground level.[18] Following this, the bolts were tied to prevent bolt loss. A third bolt failed in January 2015, but was retained by the installed ties. The bolts were determined to have failed by a process known as hydrogen embrittlement.[19] Subsequently, further at-risk bolts were to be replaced Read More about “Engineering: Assembling The Leadenhall Building - The Cheese Grater of London Documentary HD”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/122_Leadenhall_Street#cite_note-BritishLand_PR_22Dec2010-6 Subscribe to Documentary HD to be the first to receive updates - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdP4NcyEdwAMcsmMaQNlIIA Join us in our documentary hd community discussion by following documentary hd Google+ page - https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/113831720780586153206 Thanks for watching DOCUMENTARY HD channel - home of the best documentary films and documentary movies! #DocumentaryHD #DocumentaryFilms #DocumentaryMovies #History #Education #Entertainment Thanks for watching “Engineering: Assembling The Leadenhall Building - The Cheese Grater of London Documentary HD”

The Alaska Highway (also known as the Alaskan Highway, Alaska-Canadian Highway, or ALCAN Highway) was constructed during World War II for the purpose of connecting the contiguous United States to Alaska through Canada. It begins at the junction with several Canadian highways in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, and runs to Delta Junction, Alaska, via Whitehorse, Yukon. Completed in 1942 at a length of approximately 1,700 miles (2,700 km), as of 2012 it is 1,387 mi (2,232 km) long. The difference in distance is due to constant reconstruction of the highway, which has rerouted and straightened out numerous sections. The highway was opened to the public in 1948. Legendary over many decades for being a rough, challenging drive, the highway is now paved over its entire length. An informal system of historic mileposts developed over the years to denote major stopping points; Delta Junction, at the end of the highway, makes reference to its location at "Historic Milepost 1422." It is at this point that the Alaska Highway meets the Richardson Highway, which continues 96 mi (155 km) to the city of Fairbanks. This is often regarded, though unofficially, as the northern portion of the Alaska Highway, with Fairbanks at Historic Milepost 1520. Mileposts on this stretch of highway are measured from Valdez, rather than the Alaska Highway. The Alaska Highway is popularly (but unofficially) considered part of the Pan-American Highway, which extends south (despite its discontinuity in Panama) to Argentina. .
