Weak and strong interaction

I hope this is the right section for this topic...
I'm not a student of physics, I actually study engineering, and there's something I've been wondering for a while. I know - more or less - inside and out two of the four "forces" of the universe: gravity and electromagnetism. However, since I never studied nuclear physics or such stuff, I ignore completely how the weak ant strong atomic interactions work. I know they're responsible of nuclear reactions, that weak interaction keeps an atom's nucleus together while the strong one is holding quarks into protons and neutrons, but that's all. I tried to wiki them, but looks like describing how this interactions work implies a lot of difficult math I don't know. So, could please someone explain to me their functioning in a simple way? If such a way exists, of course...
