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.
