Modes of Concrete Work Measurement at Construction Sites
Measurement of concrete works is one of the most crucial tasks at any construction site. It should be conducted rigorously and very carefully as the measurements hold a very important place in the planning and execution of any civil engineering ...
Fundamental Assumptions for Reinforced Concrete Design
The fundamental assumptions for reinforced concrete design permit one to predict by calculation the performance of reinforced concrete members. Of course, the structural mechanics in conjunction with extensive testing are used as a base for the design and analysis of ...
What is a hidden beam? Purpose, Applications and Design
What is a Hidden Beam? Hidden beam is a reinforced concrete beam, also called concealed beam provided within the depth of supporting slabs. So, the depth of hidden beam is the same as slab depth as it can be noticed ...
Types of Steel Beam Connections and their Details
There are various types of steel beam connections used in structures. Steel beam connections are categorized into two groups namely framed and seated connections.
Failure Modes of RCC Beams Strengthened with NSM FRP Techniques
The near surface mounted strengthening of reinforced concrete beams improves its flexural strength. Failure modes of such beams is discussed.
Methods to Improve Ductility of RCC Beams with Fiber Reinforced Polymer Bars
The ductility of beams reinforced with FRP bars are the major concern because of the linear elastic behavior up to rupture without yielding of FRP materials.
Construction Measures & Materials to Reduce Deflection of Concrete Beams and Slabs
Deflections of concrete beams and slabs are affected by construction measures and materials used. In most situations, size of the reinforced concrete sections is controlled by deflections. To achieve more economical sections, certain measures can be employed includes construction techniques ...
