In an introduction to structural principles, participants will learn about forces, loads and strains, and the elements of a basic structure.
Participants will be able to identify how and when a material should be used to prevent stresses on elements and structures of a building.
Participants will be asked to identify primary loads on a house renovation and apply their knowledge to identify how the loads travel through a structure. Additionally, participants will have to identify materials and components that are required to counteract the different types of forces, thus reducing the stresses and strains on the structures.
