Different Failures in RCC Buildings

By
Priyanka Gupta

1.0 Introduction

In small residential buildings the quality of construction is seldom questionable. The reason varies from poor building material quality to lack of knowledge of good construction practices. Most of the times, engineers are ignored by individual house owners and masons are given sole responsibility of both design and construction. Almost all structural engineers practicing in India will agree that 99% of the failures of structures in India are not due to design failure.

Explaining the different aspect of construction that a normal home builder, engineer or contractor needs to remember.

Study Of Planning of Public Building

By

INTRODUCTION
Urban India today, faces serious challenges of growth and its management. Across geographies, the issues of urbanization manifest in the form of overcrowding, congestion, insufficient infrastructure, inadequate service provisioning mainly in terms of drinking water, sanitation, energy, transport, solid waste management, environmental degradation, and pollution, etc. These, along with the poor management of rapid growth, affect the socioeconomic development of the country.

So by using newly and broadly available technique in construction infrastructure town planning engineer or planner can establish well developed buildings. Which are good in aesthetic safety proof and any disaster free. Public buildings are old in construction such as famous auditorium markets schools colleges are good in construction but sometimes safety issues are creates for such kind of view it is necessary to study and built safer public building. Again with safety there are lot of energy systems are used in public buildings such as lights fuels gas water etc. Due to urbanization these things are very much required to human beings but these things are non renewable or pollution making things so it is need to use concept of green buildings used in the public buildings.

LITERATURE REVIEW
Plan of the building is the assembling and grouping and arranging its component parts in systematic manner and in proper order. So as to form a meaningful wholesome and homogeneous body with a comprehensive look out to meet its functional purpose.

Abstract
“License to drive is not a license to kill”. The unscrupulous growing population has created many problems in country like India. One of the challenging ones being car parking which we confront almost every day. Besides the problem of space for cars moving on the road, greater is the problem of space for a parked vehicle considering that private vehicles remain parked for most of their time. While residential projects still escape with designated parking, the real problem lies with commercial spaces many a time which is overcome by taking extra open spaces to park.

Problems of using High Grade Steel in Constructions

Presented by:
1) Prof.M.V.Kuriakose B.Tech(Ed), M.I.E. (Retd.Principal, Govt.Polytechnic, Perinthalmanna)
2) Mr.Jismon Issac B.E (Mech) A.I.E, MBA

[Prof.M.V .Kuriakose is having around 35 years of expertise in Structural Engineering and Designing. He is an active member of Lensfed.]

[Mr.Jismon Issac has 13 years of experience in the manufacturing & Quality testing of Construction Steel bars especially High grade TMT steel bars]

Now days some contractors report a tendency among few design Engineers that they specify grade Fe-500 or higher steel in residential buildings, citing its high strength. If they design buildings considering the use of Fe 500 steel in construction, it could help reduce the volume of steel used and reduce the column size.

The rosy part aside, Fe 500 grade steel could pose quite a few site specific issues during construction, especially for small builders. Considering the reported failures and problems with grade Fe-500 or higher, it is advisable to use Fe 415 in residential and commercial buildings and Fe500 could be used only when the entire design is made according to that grade. This is explained below;

Abstract
A green building, which is also known as a sustainable building is designed to meet some objectives such as occupant health; using energy, water, and other resources more efficiently; and reducing the overall impact to the environment. It is an opportunity to use the resources efficiently while creating healthier buildings that improve human health, build a better environment, and provide cost savings. All the development projects lead to over-consumption of natural resources.

Keywords: sustainable building, human health, natural resource, energy, etc.
