- Calculate the total mass required
for each floor of your model. It
should be equal to the total mass of the steel blocks required
for that floor.
( Work it Out )
- Add the required mass to each
floor of your model. You can use anything which has
the correct mass. In the photograph, some round weights
from the EERC laboratory were used.
- Make sure every floor is loaded.
You do not have to load the ground floor if it is directly
on the MDF base.
- Leave the model standing for 15 minutes
to check that it does not collapse under the vertical load.
