  • Yash Chamadia June 27, 2020 at 10:35 am

    Load Carrying Capacity of Column 9’x12′ with 6 steel bars of 12mm according to formula Pu =0.4 fck Ac + 0.67 fy Asc comes out to be 720KN, Taking safety factor of 1.5 its 480KN. Since 1KN is equal to 100 KG appx., therefore load carrying capacity of column coumes out to be 48,000kg. Is this calculation correct or am I missing something.

    What should be the minimum time between (HMA) asphalt paving layers? For eg. If we have a design which says 250mm thick asphalt layer.
    This requires be constructed in layers to achieve the required density. For eg. 8cm each layer, now the question is what is the minimum wait Period between each layer? Do we have standard requirements? Such as AASHTO?
    Please assist sir. Thank you
