Basic Concepts Every Civil Engineer Should Know

  Safety shoud be a top priority : Always wear protection helmets and protection shoes on construction site. Learn to measure any structural member correctly : Always carry a measuring tape of 3m or 5m with you. measurement is an crucial parameter in numerous elements. Productive conversation is a top key to connect : construction site is filled with people who have unique level of communication, from a labor to project manager. Learn how to persuade people. Stay focused : Little carelessness can cause you terrible reputation. Constantly be aware of your work. Be present. Gaining knowledge of engineering drawing : Civil engineering students must have excellent sense of imagination. It may look complicated but with practice absolutely […]

Rebound Concrete Test Hammer

  A Schmidt hammer, also known as a Swiss hammer or a rebound hammer, is a device to measure the elastic properties or strength of concrete or rock, mainly surface hardness and penetration resistance. The hammer measures the rebound of a spring-loaded mass impacting against the surface of the sample. The test hammer will hit the concrete at a defined energy. Its rebound […]

Types And Methods Of Earthing

Earthing is used to protect you from an electric shock. It does this by providing a path (a protective conductor) for a fault current to flow to earth. It also causes the protective device (either a circuit-breaker or fuse) to switch off the electric current to the circuit that has the fault. The electrical potential of the […]

How to calculate bending stresses in beam

If it’s necessary to calculate the value of bending stresses developed in a loaded beam, count on the two cross-sections of a beam as HE and GF, initially parallel as presented in fig 1(a). While bending the beam, it’s far expected that these sections remain parallel i.e. H’E’ and G’F’, the very last location of the sections, still stay as straight lines and then they subtend some angle q. Now, assume fiber AB in the material, at a span y from the N.A, if the beam bends, it’ll amplify to A’B’ As CD and C’D’ stay on the neutral axis […]

System Of Pipes For The Bathroom

A home’s plumbing system is a complex network of water supply pipes, drainpipes, vent pipes, and more. Because plumbing is complicated and one of the costliest systems to repair or install in a home, it pays to understand how the system works. In a bathroom pipe system, each part of it has a different purpose, different […]

Plumbing Installations | Schemes and Plans

In the developed world, plumbing infrastructure is critical to public health and sanitation and because of that, it’s important to understand that the plumbing instalations. A good plumbing and piping plan will surely make your life much easier. These Plans solutions are done with an extension of ConceptDraw PRO v10.2 software. Al the samples, templates and libraries of pipes […]

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 […]
