Join us on our on-going educational journey through the wonderful world of trussing and rigging, both of which share a common and crucial element… engineering! Enter Area Four Industries Technical Director and German Structural Engineer, Dipl.-Ing. Norbert Tripp, who’s a perfectionist and makes no excuses when explaining the hows and whys of structures - stressing the importance of effectivity, stability and safety.
 
Through a series of educational videos on A4i.tv, Norbert builds on your existing knowledge and experience in trussing and rigging, guiding you through the ins and outs of structural calculations, and how structural principles work in practice. All in a fun and laid back style, and most importantly, in layman’s terms that are easily understood by all!
 
In the first of two new videos released on A4i.tv, you are given a proper introduction to Norbert and provided with a window into his world – his education, experience and interests. By the end of the video, you’ll have a better understanding of his passion for structures and structural engineering.
 
In the second video, Norbert provides you with a detailed overview of internal forces experienced in truss, what each force is called and the reactions they cause in truss components.  
 
Visit A4i. tv today to increase your knowledge about truss and support structures, and how to work with them safely and effectively.   And remember that new videos are constantly being uploaded to the already extensive A4i.tv video library, so make sure to keep checking back at A4i.tv.
