Causes and Types of Slope Failures

صورة
  Causes and Types of Slope Failures The ground is seldom flat. There are natural slopes all around us on the ground, going up and down hills or valleys. Man-made slopes are used mostly in infrastructure construction like in roads and dams. But nothing is permanent and so slopes destabilize and fail as well. Today, we will talk about the causes and types of slope failures in this article. Unstable Slopes Natural forces like wind, water, and ice often create slopes on their own accord. And similarly, they also go on to destroy or at least erode the slopes they have created. This effect extends to man-made slopes as well, though they are engineered to be sturdier. Often unstable topography itself results in unstable slopes. Slopes can fail in ways, depending upon how and when they fail. Sometimes the sloped ground collapses suddenly, causing major accidents and taking lives. Sometimes the sloped ground just settles slowly, over a long time. Sometimes only a smaller and weaker part breaks

Handbook of Civil Engineering Calculations 2nd Edition

صورة
  Introduction Manage everyday calculations instantly and accurately-saving  your  time in the design, construction, and maintenance of all types of structures Covering all aspects of civil engineering calculations in an easy-to-understand format, the new edition of the  Handbook of Civil Engineering Calculations  is now revised and updated with over 500 key calculations that show you exactly how to compute the desired values for a particular design-going quickly from data to finished result. Using both customary and SI units, this comprehensive engineer’s must-have resource is exactly what you need to solve the civil engineering problems that come your way. From structural steel to reinforced concrete, from bridges and dams to highways and roads,  Handbook of Civil Engineering Calculations, 2e,  lets you handle all of these design calculations quickly-and more importantly, correctly. NEW TO THIS EDITION: Updated calculation procedures using the latest applicable design codes for every

The Importance of Rebar or Reinforced Concrete

The Importance of Rebar or Reinforced Concrete The basic elements in the structures are having the inside forces to be specific compression, tension, bowing moments and torsion. Withstanding these inward forces with low inclination for breakdown and any bothersome twisting for functionality condition is the fundamental undertaking of the development materials. Concrete is commonly ideal as a development material over different choices as it is an efficient answer for the development business. The compression strength of the concrete is a lot higher than some other materials while its rigidity is so feeble. So as to get the most extreme utilization of the compression strength of the concrete, the steel is coordinated into the concrete to take out the tension acting in the basic elements. In this manner, the malleable limit of the structure is additionally higher as the compression limit. This trustworthiness of steel into concrete is named as Reinforced Concrete, and that steel is allud

10Types of Columns Depending on Shape

  10 Types of Columns Depending on Shape Arguably, the most important part of any modern architecture are the columns, because they bear all the load of the superstructure. Columns can be of many types, but we prefer to categorize them depending upon their physical shape. So, today we will talk about the 10 types of columns depending on shape. We can classify columns based on the following characteristics: Physical shape Reinforcement type Loading type Slenderness ratio But in this article, we will only discuss the types of columns depending on shape. Depending upon physical shape – the shape you see them in, or the shape they are cast in – columns can be of nine main types. These are the following: Rectangular columns Square columns Circular columns L-Type columns T-Type columns V-type columns Y-type columns Y-type columns with arch Hexagonal columns Arched columns Now, let us go and learn about each type of column based on shape in brief. Rectangular Columns The most common type of c
