  1. LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

  2. LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

  3. LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION • PROGRAM OBJECTIVES: — Recognize lightweight construction — Identify the dangers of lightweight construction — Describe techniques of ventilating light- weight construction

  4. LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION • CONVENTIONAL CONSTRUCTION: Conventional construction utilizes structural members that depend on size for strength. The greater the span for a structural member the larger it has to be to support a given load.

  5. LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

  6. LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION • DEFINITION: Lightweight construction does not derive its strength from size. Is obtained from multiple members that are in compression and tension. Additionally, the strength of the individual structural member is dependent on the sum total of the other members; thus, if one member fails, other members may fail.

  9. LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION • SIZE-UP Preplanning - Your district Onscene - Walk around structure sizing up old/new construction methods and, determine strengths and hazards by undressing the building in your mind
