Hi everyone!

For my first of the two courseworks, I've chosen to do an experiment on the effects large masses have on both wooden and metal trusses. Only problem is, I don't exactly know how to model both so as to get accurate results to apply to real-world problems such as construction of bridges/houses etc.


Does anyone have ideas on how to do the following:
1. Get suitable scale materials (like scaled-down girders or wooden beams)
2. Make the joints etc. as accurate as possible
3. Measure the actual stress along the beams/girders/joints once this is completed?

Thanks in advance, and obviously the best rep. (or what ever it is) to the most helpful answers
