Advanced Steel Building Design and Planning Guide

Steel structures promise immense construction quality and site versatility advantages, maximizing commercial/residential opportunities beyond transient wood-framed alternatives, vulnerable to deterioration and dimensionally limiting needlessly when engineered by specialists, and maximizing enduring value. Pre-engineered galvanized frameworks are fabricated precisely and then delivered site-ready for customer assembly, custom matching ambitions resourcefully within budget practically. Unmatched Steel Building … Read more

Different types of structural steel sections

Construction is a vital engineering which creates buildings, roads, bridges and other spaces that connect the world. Concrete and steel are the main construction materials. These materials are used in various shapes for building any structure. These shapes and proportions of each cross section is critical in any structural design and defines its sectional properties. … Read more

Requirement for coarse recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) as per BS8500

Recycled Aggregate Concrete Recycled Aggregate Concrete (RAC) is basically concrete mix that is prepared from crushed aggregates and concrete which has already been used in construction works. In the sector of construction engineering the key role of an engineer is to provide adequate quality products with the available materials. The products should be economical and … Read more

What Are The Benefits Of Fire Engineering Consultancy

pexels-photo-103592.jpeg

As much as the growth of real estate is expanding, the benefits of fire engineering consultancy are also getting prioritized. The high-rise buildings have a stronger risk of catching fire and risking the lives of their residents. In fact, if a high-rise building catches fire, you can’t fight it with traditional firefighting methods. Hence the … Read more

Fig 5 CS of slab showing cranking of bars

Long years back when there was no concept of bar bending schedule, certain recommendation given by BN Dutta were used for estimating steel for different components of building. Description Percentage of steel Beam 2% of total volume of concrete Column 5% of total volume of concrete Slab 1% of total volume of concrete Footing 0.8% … Read more

Flexural Strength of Concrete

One-point loading test and the Two-point loading test For Flexural Strength of Concrete

Flexural strength of Concrete, also known as Modulus of rupture, is an indirect measure of the tensile strength of unreinforced concrete. Modulus of rupture can also be defined as the measure of the extreme fibre stresses when a member is subjected to bending. Apart from external loading, tensile stresses can also be caused by warping, … Read more

Construction on Permafrost | Design Considerations & Maintenance

Construction on Permafrost

Permafrost in Construction Permafrost is the soil or rock with or without water that continuously remains at a state of 00 C (320F) or below for two years or more. It is mostly found in subzero Polar Regions and high-altitude mountain ranges. Building construction on permafrost is quite different from normal construction methods that we … Read more
