"This Is A Hold Up!"


This Is A Hold Up Workshop

Columns hold up things as varied as bird feeders and the roofs of Greek temples. Structural engineers design columns to meet many different needs. Learn how to predict the load that a simple column can support. Also, apply loads of up to a couple of hundred pounds to a few columns to see exactly when they begin to fail.
