Brief explanation of Highway Geometric Design

Geometric Design   Geometric design can be defined as follow :- Geometric Design of highways takes care of the dimensions and layout of noticeable features of the highway. It meets the necessities of the driver and the vehicle which range from comfort, effectiveness and security. Perfect geometric design can allow minimization of accidents and their […]

Concrete Reinforcement | Reinforced Concrete Fiber Types

The concept of using fibers or as reinforcement is not new. Fibers have been used as reinforcement since ancient times. Fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) is concrete containing fibrous material which increases its structural integrity. It contains short discrete fibers that are uniformly distributed and randomly oriented. Fibers include steel fibers, glass fibers, synthetic fibers and natural […]

Bar Bending Schedule For Building Reinforcement

Bar bending schedule (or schedule of bars) is a list of reinforcement bars, vis-à-vis, a given RCC work item, and is presented in a tabular form for easy visual reference.   Bar bending schedule provides details of reinforcement cutting and bending length. Advantages ofbar bending schedule when used along with reinforcement detailed drawing improves the […]

Distance formula in land surveying

In this short construction video tutorial, one can learn the concept of distance formula and it’s usage in everyday life. Distance formula is applicable to find out the distance among two points (x1, y1 and x2, y2) in a coordinate plane if coordinate of both points are established. It is based on pythagoras theorem. The […]

Design Of Pier Beam

DESIGN OF PIER BEAM DATA: Length = 9.5m Breadth = 1.5m Depth = 1.5m = 20 N/ = 415 N/ Cover = 40mm   ANALYSIS: DL of super structure = 2140 kN (including bearings) Self weight of beam = 384.75 kN Design load = DL/2+LL = (2140 +384.75)/2+(0.382700) = 1529.78 kN Maximum moment on pier […]
