Problems of Steel With High Carbon

Steel is an alloy, which is a combination of alloy and other elements. The alloy used is iron and other elements primarily carbon. Steel is widely used in construction and other applications because of its mechanical properties like tensile strength and ductility.


Understanding One Way Slab ,structural action of one way slab

Slabs comprise flat or floor surfaces of a building. It is very important as a civil engineer to know some of basic of working in every structural element. We will discuss one-way slab today. Irrespective of the code you follow and minimum reinforcement implemented, it is essential to know why is the reinforcement provided in so and so pattern & where you have to provide.
First, we need to understand what makes a slab one-way. The criteria are
  • Longer span to shorter span ratio
  • Load transfers direction
That is if      lx/ly > 2  it is a one-way slab

Here ly = longer side length
         lx = shorter side length


What is CESMM?

CESMM is Civil Engineering Standard Methods of Measurement which incorporates rules and regulations for measuring various parts and elements of a major civil engineering project. It has gone through different stages of updating.CESMM  is demanded in civil engineering works, under the NEC, ICE and FIDIC forms of contract. 

About Us

This is a center to bring up and collect all bits of knowledge and technologies flourished and flourishing to reach out for those who wish to acquire knowledge in a broader way. I am a structural engineer by profession and would like to share all information I have acquired all these years till date. This site also aims in researching new topics, works on your questionnaires and fill it up with good facts and information.
