High Range Water Reducing Admixture for Concrete

High range water reducing admixture reduces the quantity of mixing water required to produce concrete of a given consistency by 12 % or greater, as per ASTM C 494- C 494M. It is capable of producing great water ...

Safe Bearing Capacity values of Different Soils

The capacity of the soil to allow the loads coming from the foundation is called bearing capacity of the soil. The gross pressure at the base of the foundation at which soil fails is called ultimate bearing capacity. ...

What are the Foundation Design Requirements?

There are many design requirements that foundation structure need to met in order to perform its function adequately and serve its purpose. For instance, it should be strong enough to minimize differential settlement and should be able to ...

Excavation Hazards- Effects and Prevention Measures

Different types of hazards are associated with excavation of soil. for instance, failure of soils at sides of trenches and pits, movement of buildings due excavations at its vicinity, falling workers into pits, buried workers due to collapse ...

Effect of Fire and High Temperature on FRPs

Fire and high temperature influence properties (strength, stiffness, young’s modulus) of FRPs extensively. It is necessary to understand the influence of high temperature and fire in order to consider proper fire protection strategy. Fire performance of FRPs are ...

Traversing in Surveying – Types and Methods

A traverse is a series of connected lines whose lengths and directions are to be measured and the process of surveying to find such measurements is known as traversing. In general, chains are used to measure length and ...
