Construction and Design
Architects, engineers, design professionals, and everyday people use math in construction and design. Math can be seen in architecture and design through symmetry, frieze patterns, bridges, and construction problems that are encountered by people everyday.
Piped Water Cooling of a Concrete Slab
Concrete is the most widely used building material in the world. Through a process called mineral hydration, the cement bonds the other components together and forms a rock like structure known as concrete. The reaction between cement and water is highly exothermic so if the hydration process occurs too quickly the concrete will not form strong bonds. It is desirable to slow down the reaction by cooling so the structure of the concrete will not be compromised.
Suspension Bridges
Suspension Bridges encompass many mathematical concepts including its parabolic shape, the length and measurements of the bridge, the forces acting on the bridge, and elements of weather.
