i want to know about the absorption water for coarse and fine aggregate in concrete, for extra water required.
formula for it
extra water required=%age absorption*mass of aggregate.
how we know about %age absorption??

I am struggling to solve a cantilever truss problem which consist of 10 members, 6 nodes each member is 9.144 m and 2 external forces applied at the free bottom chord nodes magnitude of 445.374 KN
it is second degree indeterminate truss and I need the internal member forces to design the steel member sizes.
how should I solve this problem ? I need urgent help please.

where we do use m28 grade concrete..???

Akbar says:

good morning Sir, good luck to all of us. I want to ask you about the phenomenon of shrinkage crack in concrete. Is that a natural thing? which indicates that the concrete is high-quality concrete. Is there a method for making concrete without shrinkage crack? or at least minimize the possibility of the shrinkage crack.
thank you for your attention.
