Problems faced:

 Toppling
 Stacking order
inconsistent
 No segregation
 Support structure failure
 Low capacity
 Space wastage
 Exposure to rain

The Specifics Gusset Plate to spread load over

450mm
wider area
Size of module: [Folded plate 50mm flaps, 100
wide at base, 8 thick]
1800mm (width)
x900mm (span)
x450mm (height) Interlocking “teeth” for
adjustable + secure connections

Bracing members for keeping Underside View
Total number of main members in place
[hollow steel sections
modules:42 100mmx80mm] Supportive bracing members

Total no. of books Wire mesh to prevent books [hollow steel sections
per module:~6250 from falling out 65mmx65mm]
