How To Calculate The Weight Of M.S. Angle For Billing

In this article, we will explain how to work out the unit weight of M.S. angle for billing. The angles may come in different dimensions like 20x20x3 mm, 25 x 25 x 3 mm, 25 x 25 x 5 mm, 30x30x3 mm, 40x40x3 mm. But we will make the calculation for the angle having size […]

Housing In Circular Shape Of A Home

Housing is usually not associated with the shape of the house. People chose to live in a house which offers them what they need, and in most cases, it’s a rectangular or square shape. But the architecture is giving the possibility for people to live in circular homes! With dozens of interconnecting points forming a […]

Learn How To Calculate Bricks, Cement And Sand In A Brick Wall

The following video will give you excellent guidance if want to learn how to calculate the number of bricks, cement and sand quantities in a brick wall. The ratio of mortar is  taken as 1:6 (1 = cement and 6 = sand). The density of Mortar is taken as 10mm. To determining the quantity of […]

Structural Steel Detailing Process

 A metal structure is a composition of structural elements (beams, columns, floor, plates, roof contributors, side wall covering members and so on).  It consists of steel elements of numerous dimensions and shapes and they’re all linked to each other through bolting or welding. The design engineer in his design drawing shows the sizes of the elements, the orientation, the member area in 3-D space, and the way they are linked to each other. He additionally suggests the exact material specification from available options. He offers the general bay / aisle dimensions of the building, the floor levels etc. He additionally suggests the paint specification. This design drawing allows the contractor/fabricator/erector to evaluate the whole quantity of work, check the material quantities for each element size, the […]

This construction tutorial will give you all the information you need to calculate the volume of a cement bag. All you need to do is go through the following process mentioned in the video and calculate it easily. The process along with the calculation should be followed perfectly. Write the density of cement, which is […]

Types of Foundation

A foundation is the element of an architectural structure which connects it to the ground, and transfers loads from the structure to the ground. Foundations are generally considered either shallow or deep. Foundation engineering is the application of soil mechanics and rock mechanics in the design of foundation elements of structures. It is also called as ground sill, which transfers loads to the ground. It is generally […]

Field Density Test

Field Density Test The sand cone method is used for field density test in highway construction. In the field, the dry density test is performed to check the compaction of layers. Compaction is most beneficial for the preparation of sub base grade and different pavement layers and in the production of embankment in order to increase the steadiness and to lower settlement. In field compaction, the compacting moisture content is first controlled at ideal moisture content and the adequacy of rolling […]
