Engineering is a term applied to the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences, gained by study, experience, and practice, is applied to the efficient use of the materials and forces of nature. Engineers are the ones who have received professional training in pure and applied science.Before the middle of the 18th century, large-scale construction work was usually placed in the hands of military engineers. Military engineering involved such work as the preparation of topographical maps, the location, design, and construction of roads and bridges; and the building of forts and docks; see Military Engineering below. In the 18th century, however, the term civil engineering came into use to describe engineering work that was performed by civilians for nonmilitary purposes.

Civil engineering is the broadest of the engineering fields. Civil engineering focuses on the infrastructure of the world which include Water works, Sewers, Dams, Power Plants, Transmission Towers/Lines, Railroads, Highways, Bridges, Tunnels, Irrigation Canals, River Navigation, Shipping Canals, Traffic Control, Mass Transit, Airport Runways, Terminals, Industrial Plant Buildings, Skyscrapers, etc. Among the important subdivisions of the field are construction engineering, irrigation engineering, transportation engineering, soils and foundation engineering, geodetic engineering, hydraulic engineering, and coastal and ocean engineering.

Civil engineers build the world’s infrastructure. In doing so, they quietly shape the history of nations around the world. Most people can not imagine life without the many contributions of civil engineers to the public’s health, safety and standard of living. Only by exploring civil engineering’s influence in shaping the world we know today, can we creatively envision the progress of our tomorrows.

    Hi,
    Can any one get clear my doubt for cement sand mortar use as plaster works, why we check its compressive strength, in actually when we applied it on wall may be thickness of 20 mm,12mm…,
    I think/doubt instead of testing its Compressive Strength as mentioned in BIS codes, it should be its bonding strength & impermeably properties with substrate.

    Regards
    Vinay

    Dear sir,
    Req:-the IS 2386 method procedure in fine aggregates of results in sieve no 150 microns test results at passing16.4 is coming, but as per Indian standard, 0-10 percentage any problems in concrete
    Remarks:- the sample supplied satisfies the requirements of grading zone ll as per IS 383-2016.according to IS 383-2016 for crushed stone sand ,the permissible limits on 150 microns IS sieve is increased to 20%.this doesn’t affect the 5% allowance permitted in CI 6.3 (pls any suggestions for results)

    Thanking u sir
