Components of a rubble mound breakwater

Rubble mound breakwaters are used for protection of harbours and beaches against wave action. They are also used for protection of navigation channels and beaches against sediment transportation. The figure below shows the components of a typical Rubble mounted breakwater. Components of a typical Rubble mounted breakwater Core -The purpose of the core is to […]

Lapping length of reinforcement steel bars

Normally, steel bars have a 6m length. If length of a bar is not enough to keep the reinforcement, we have to lap  two steel bars. Normally, lapping position is at where near the minimum shear force is acting. Normally lap length is 50D meaning 50 times the bar diameter if both bars are of same diameter. […]

How slope deflection method is used for structural analysis for beams

This construction video provides detailed guidelines on how to use slope deflection method on beam. The slope deflection method is mainly applied for structural analysis for beams and frames. Under displacement method, initially the unidentified displacements are defined by providing solution to the structure’s equilibrium equations; then the other response characteristics are assessed with compatibility […]
