Concrete Beam and Column

I made a quick study of two concrete columns and a beam. Originally this model was used in my reinforced concrete design class to show how flexural and shear reinforcing is placed in a building element.

Download it from the Google 3D warehouse. (Turn on all the layers.)

Friday Bridge Concept and earthquake

I gave my second concrete design exam last night and I am a little tired. The exam was scheduled for two hours and most students took about 2:30+ hours to finish..

So, for fun I developed a little bridge, using a cattle car from Google Warehouse. Next week is spring break, so between grading exams, I will try to post some “good” material..

One more. I tried using the photomatch in sketchup. So far it works but it looks like %$#. Remember its just a cattle train car concept!
