We will swim through the benefits of intelligent transportation system in the middle, then to uses and challenges of ITS.… Read More Intelligent transportation system – Components of Intelligent transportation system
The bitumen softening Point Test is done to determine the consistency of bitumen. Bitumen is a viscoelastic material, which means it behaves like both a liquid and a solid state. It does not have a specific melting point. As the temperature increases, the bitumen becomes softer and the viscosity of the bitumen decreases. One of the common parameters for classifying bitumen is the softening point of the bitumen. This property shows at what temperature the bitumen softens. … Read More Bitumen Softening Point Test – Ring and ball method
The penetration test for bitumen is a laboratory method for grading bitumen based on its hardness. In this test, the amount of penetrating a specific needle into the bitumen is measured.
More than 85% of bitumen is used in road construction. Weather condition affects on bitumen binder. In cold weather, bitumen becomes hard, and the possibility of cracking increases. On the other hand, hot weather causes bitumen becomes soft and sticky.… Read More Penetration Test for Bitumen – Significance and Procedure
Bridges can range from modest constructions to massive, eye-catching pieces of art – and everything in between. A bridge serves its sole purpose as long as it transports us across a gap. Types of bridges is an important classification in civil engineering. In today’s blog, we are going to learn different types of bridges in detail.… Read More Types of Bridges – Top 7 Bridge Design Types and Principles
