    Hello, i have a question to ask.
    What are the risks associated with building an eleven storey appartment building on a river bed in a seismic area? Would the building suddenly collapse?

  • Payal October 21, 2019 at 1:52 am

    I will use SAP2000 for progressive collapse analysis of structure. I want to know the how to apply individual load combination on individual span of structure. Please help.

    Does the slab gets damaged by placing plant pots?

  • devender suthar November 15, 2019 at 5:00 am

    i have a slab which area is of 12’9″*12’3″. while designing i got reinforcement of 10mm@300 and 10mm@280. and i dont know why engineers provides me the reinforement as 10mm@200 & 10mm@ 200. can someone explain me the differance between then

    • E V SUBHASBABU January 3, 2020 at 6:02 am

      choose the dia of bar for any slab on slab depth/10 and should not exceed that dia of bar. The mistake in design calculations. the slab is to be redesign. the result may be 10mm @ 200c/c only

    What is the difference between a Commercial Pump Station and a Commercial Lift Station? If you have a permit for a pump station can you turn it into a lift station?

    i want to know about the mix design for hydralic paver block using 6mm aggreate

  • Konsong January 21, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    A simple curve have tangents AB and BC intersecting at a common point B. AB has an azimuth of 180 degree and BC has an azimuth of 230 degree. the stationing of the point of curvature at A is 10 + 140.26. the degree of the curve is 4 degree. Can you show me the figure of this problem?

    What is the best way of modeling, analysing and designing a double-decker flyover?

  • 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.
