Types of Structural Design and its Processes

The entire process of structural planning and design requires not only imagination and conceptual thinking but also sound knowledge of practical aspects, such as recent design codes and bye-laws, backed up by ample experience, institution and judgment.It is emphasized that ...

Reinforced Concrete Slab Casting- Work Procedure

Casting concrete slab is considerably crucial task in building construction and requires great planning and accuracy, in addition to proper execution sequence. This article presents proper procedure on how to prepare and cast reinforced concrete slab. Materials and Machinery for Slab ...

CFRP Laminates for Shear Strengthening of Concrete Beams

The use of Near Surface Mounted Reinforcement for concrete structures are not a new invention. A type of NSMR has been used since the 1940s, where steel reinforcement is placed in slots in the concrete cover or in addition concrete ...

Characteristics of Beams for Its Analysis and Design

There are a number of properties of a beam that an Engineer should be aware of as they dictate beam behaviour when subject to a load and ultimately represent possible areas or mechanisms for failure. The main ones being:Second ...

Moment Distribution Method of Structural Analysis

Moment distribution method offers a convenient way to analyse statically indeterminate beams and rigid frames.In the moment distribution method, every joint of the structure to be analysed is fixed so as to develop the fixed-end moments.Then, each fixed joint is ...

Development Length of Reinforcement Bars

A development length can be defined as the amount of reinforcement(bar) length needed to be embedded or projected into the column to establish the desired bond strength between the concrete and steel (or any other two types of material).[caption id="attachment_22872" ...
