Brief overview of rolled steel sections in construction

Rolled steel sections are considered as the useful materials in steel construction. These are accessible in different forms. Steel is one of the most vital building materials in construction industry. It has diverse applications. On the basis of their utilization, various steel members are manufactured in the factories. The continuous casting molds devoid of any […]

DRILLED PIERS AND IT’S CONSTRUCTION

WHAT IS DRILLED PIER? A drilled pier is a deep foundation system that is a large diameter concrete cylinder constructed by placing fresh concrete and reinforcing steel into a drilled shaft. It is also called as caissons, drilled shafts, drilled piers, Cast-in-drilled-hole piles (CIDH piles) or Cast-in-Situ piles. For construction of drilled pier, a large […]

PROCESSES IN BITUMINOUS ROAD CONSTRUCTION

Bituminous road constructions steps: 1. Preparation of the existing base course layer The existing surface is prepared by removing the pot holes or rust if any. The irregularities are filled in with premix chippings at least a week before laying surface course. If the existing pavement is extremely way, a bituminous leveling course of adequate […]

All-composite superstructures for accelerated bridge construction

Recently, a main concern in bridge engineering had been the rehabilitation and reconstruction of deteriorated bridge members. Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) can overcome the shortcomings of traditional construction methods, which are typically labor-intensive and time-consuming. ABC can minimize disruption to public communities and save indirect costs associated with detouring traff c. Concrete members prefabricated in […]
