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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Significance of Light and Wind Movement in the Building Construction

Natural ventilation can be described as a method of providing and eliminating air through an indoor space via natural means (without using a fan or other mechanical device). It provides ventilation and space cooling using outdoor air flow due to pressure variations among the building and its surrounding. Wind ventilation is the easiest, least expensive, the most common form of passive cooling and ventilation. Good wind ventilation is determined by using high thermal comfort and adequate fresh air for the ventilated spaces while having little or no power use for active HVAC cooling and ventilation. Daylight is the controlled admission of natural light and direct sunlight and diffuse skylight—into a building to reduce electric lighting and saving energy. The lighting […]

How to find Tank capacity? To determine capacity of tank, first you need to have length, width and depth of your sump/tank in feet Multiply length, width and depth of your tank to find out cubic area of your tank/sump. 1 feet cube area(1′ length * 1′ width * 1′ height) will store upto 28 […]

Staircase Basic Details | Staircase Design

This video tutorial sheds light on the various components of the staircase, in addition, it gives some basic info and illustrations. A flight of staircase consists of different horizontal and vertical surfaces. The vertical surface is called the riser and the horizontal surface is called tread. Through integrating both of them a step is made. With the combination of series of steps, it becomes less difficult to move from one level to another. The rise is how tall a step is. The horizontal dimension that is enclosed in a single step is […]
