## Formwork Slab and Types you can Use in Construction

Formwork in construction is the use of support structures and moulds to create structures out of concrete which is poured into the moulds. Formwork can be made using moulds out of steel, wood, aluminium and/or prefabricated forms. Formwork is an ancillary construction, used as a mould for a structure.There are several types of formwork slabs that are used lately. You can construct the […]

## How To Analyze Concrete Block Work Perfectly

SL Khan, the famous civil engineer explained in following video tutorial how to analyze concrete block work. By analysis we mean just to calculate the total block work, mortar in block work, number of blocks, cement and sand in block work. The steps of analysis are: 1) Determine the total Gross block work. ( in cu.m or […]

## Bridge | Components and classification

A bridge is a structure providing passage over an obstacle without closing the way beneath. The required passage may be for a road, a railway, pedestrians, a canal or a pipeline. The obstacle to be crossed may be a river, a road, railway or a valley. There are many types of bridges and they can […]

## Brief Types of Truss Overview in Different Frame Structures

Almost everything contains an internal structure and can be supposed to be a “structure”. This construction article will facilitate you to work out the forces which are transferred by these structures in order that it becomes possible for an engineer to determine whether the structure has the capability to withstand these forces or not. “Loads” operating […]

## How To Evaluate The Grade Of Sands At Construction Site

In video tutorial given below is shown how to check the grade of sands in the construction site. In a construction site, different types of sands like medium, course and fine are supplied. The quality engineer should verify the quality of sand and that process is done through sieve analysis. A sieve analysis (or gradation test) is a […]
