Project 1.2 - Parallel Beam by Chayakorn C.


Start with the ideal function of the beam; 'beam resisting bending'. According to the previous column, the beam should get in charge to collects the weakness of the column which is in the middle thin part of column . The beam consisted of two parallel horizontal line, the first one located between the middle of each column, joint it together to prevent any 'buckle' situation. Another was placed on the top of column in order to span the compression receiving. 

An element that link these two horizontal line is curved form that extracted from the curve of semi-vault in column, in order to make a fluid between two elements.
