    formula for getting weight (per meter) of rope :
    weight = (diameter *diameter)/2.2
    is this a right formula
    kindly clear me.
    if its right then from where 2.2 came.

  • ARUNESH BAJPAI July 11, 2017 at 2:34 am


    I have a godown which was used for urea storage for few years. this godown was not plastered and its floor was also of bricks laid down on soil.
    when it was not in use for urea storage anymore, we have plastered its walls and for floor we have used concrete and then plaster of cement around 8 years back.

    Now problem is that too much moisture remains on floor throughout the year except summer. Moisture quantity is so much like somebody has watered the floor.

    We have other rooms in the vicinity of this godown and there is not such problem.

    Please tell me why it’s so and what can be the permanent solution for it.

    What are the books available for it ?

    • Anjani03 September 20, 2017 at 11:06 pm

      This book (Steel Designing 5th Ed.) has information on designing a composite member. If not then you can get the info from which has all the engineering related to documents.

      Hope this helps!!

    I am a finance professional working in Construction, hope you may resolve query. Earlier our estimates are based on DSR rates which are inclusive of taxes like Excise, Vat etc. However post GST 18 % tax is applicable on full value.

    Hence is there any published document to compare old DSR rates in GST regime

  • Glen Matteson August 2, 2017 at 11:08 am

    Why would the webs of a plate girder bridge (deck type, for a railroad) be substantially shallower AT THE POINTS OF SUPPORT (piers) than along most of the span? (So far, I’ve found information only on bridges where the web depth is less NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE SPAN (situations where apparently the girder is acting as a cantilever).
