A bridge is a structure built over physical obstacles such as water bodies like rivers, lakes, canals, etc, and valleys, roads, etc with minimal obstructing to the area below.Components of a bridge below the bearing constitute substructure and components above the bearings constitute superstructure or decking components.
Construction has always been about the speed and efficiency that can be ensured with the materials and techniques of construction. Prefabrication is an amazing technology that helps to reduce time and having many more benefits. Prefabricated construction, or “prefab,” is a method of construction that uses components made off-site in a factory, which are then transported put together on-site to create a structure.
Components of a road or elements of road plays an important part in ensuring the safety and service life of a road. The most important elements of roads are listed below.
Types of road construction are significant to understand the category of roads and their characteristics. In this blog, we will find out the details of 5 types in detail. Whitetopping is the coating of a layer of Portland cement concrete on the existing asphalt pavement. Depending on the thickness of the concrete sheet and if the layer is bonded to the asphalt substrate, whitetopping is divided into different types
Road pavement structure: Road is the most important structure that decides the economic growth of a country. The road structure to be constructed based on the traffic requirements, climatic conditions of the area, terrain, etc. The road structure has to withstand abrasion loads and climatic and terrain conditions without failure. This article is about the components of a flexible pavement structure.
Blockboard vs plywood, Most people get confused with these terms because of the similarity in looks, and both products are popularly used in interior works, home decor, and furniture works. In reality, both these materials are different types of engineered wood and possess entirely different properties, and are used for specific interior applications
The ecological footprint is gaining significance in the era of advancements. The unsustainable developments and rapid technological developments in the infrastructure says its high time we give significance to the concept. Ecological footprint helps in measuring and assessing the impact of human activities. Therefore take necessary actions which include rainwater harvesting, soil management practices, use of public transportation system, use of renewable resources, organic farming etc.
Pervious concrete pavements (PCP) are advancement of innovative materials that contribute to the construction of better structures. We will find out the basic and technical details, design considerations, factors affecting the performance and limitations of PCP in the blog. Pervious concrete is a special form of concrete with a high porosity used for concrete flatwork applications that allows direct passage of precipitation water and other sources, thereby reducing the runoff from a site and allowing groundwater recharge.
Augmented reality is a trending technological advancement that has the potential to change the user experience and visual presentations. Augmented reality use of a synthetic environment for the integration of 4D building information models to live picture. It is more feasible and more effective than the traditional methods. The real and virtual environment are represented as the two poles of the continuum. And, augmented reality is the middle segment of continuum. In the next section, I will show you why augmented reality is important technology to be applied in civil engineering.
Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC) is a type of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC). The main constituents are cement, sand, silica fume, steel fiber and quartz powder with minimal water to binder ratio, without coarse aggregate. In RPC, water- binder ratio is very low, CA is absent- reduce the heterogeneity of concrete mix and optimize microstructure. Precise gradation of particles yields compact, well-arranged and high strength hydrates of maximum density.
