E6827: How to Build a Building in HSSP Spring 2013 (Mar. 02, 2013)
Think you might be interested in engineering or architecture? With this course you will see the "magic" of designing your own small building from scratch using professional softwares in a very easy and fun way. First, we will use AutoCAD to draw a small plan of the building we want to design. Second, we will learn some basics about building and supporting structures. We will then apply this knowledge to raise our own building with TRICALC, a very powerful software used to calculate structures. Finally, we will discuss facilities inside the building, such as plumbing and sanitation systems. We will see where the water comes from and where it goes when it is dirty. We will use CYPE, another software program, to better understand these processes.
