Building Composites- Case Study


Building Composites - Case Study / Design Technology / Senior Grade 12 / Restore and Improve Urban Infrastructure

In this module, students will briefly review the properties of composite materials, specifically rebar/concrete composites. Students will then be split into groups of 4-5, and provided with a handout containing images of a collapsed parking structure. Students must work together, and apply their knowledge of composites and the images provided to determine the cause of the structure collapse.

Below are the materials for this module.
