Study Of Planning of Public Building

Er. Vikas Ubale
Vidya Pratishthan’s College of Engineering, Baramati

Urban India today, faces serious challenges of growth and its management. Across geographies, the issues of urbanization manifest in the form of overcrowding, congestion, insufficient infrastructure, inadequate service provisioning mainly in terms of drinking water, sanitation, energy, transport, solid waste management, environmental degradation, and pollution, etc. These, along with the poor management of rapid growth, affect the socioeconomic development of the country.

So by using newly and broadly available technique in construction infrastructure town planning engineer or planner can establish well developed buildings. Which are good in aesthetic safety proof and any disaster free. Public buildings are old in construction such as famous auditorium markets schools colleges are good in construction but sometimes safety issues are creates for such kind of view it is necessary to study and built safer public building. Again with safety there are lot of energy systems are used in public buildings such as lights fuels gas water etc. Due to urbanization these things are very much required to human beings but these things are non renewable or pollution making things so it is need to use concept of green buildings used in the public buildings.

Plan of the building is the assembling and grouping and arranging its component parts in systematic manner and in proper order. So as to form a meaningful wholesome and homogeneous body with a comprehensive look out to meet its functional purpose.

Parking Patterns In Order To Menace Traffic Chaos

Er. Navneet Kumar

“License to drive is not a license to kill”. The unscrupulous growing population has created many problems in country like India. One of the challenging ones being car parking which we confront almost every day. Besides the problem of space for cars moving on the road, greater is the problem of space for a parked vehicle considering that private vehicles remain parked for most of their time. While residential projects still escape with designated parking, the real problem lies with commercial spaces many a time which is overcome by taking extra open spaces to park.

Problems of using High Grade Steel in Constructions

Presented by:
1) Prof.M.V.Kuriakose B.Tech(Ed), M.I.E. (Retd.Principal, Govt.Polytechnic, Perinthalmanna)
2) Mr.Jismon Issac B.E (Mech) A.I.E, MBA

[Prof.M.V .Kuriakose is having around 35 years of expertise in Structural Engineering and Designing. He is an active member of Lensfed.]

[Mr.Jismon Issac has 13 years of experience in the manufacturing & Quality testing of Construction Steel bars especially High grade TMT steel bars]

Now days some contractors report a tendency among few design Engineers that they specify grade Fe-500 or higher steel in residential buildings, citing its high strength. If they design buildings considering the use of Fe 500 steel in construction, it could help reduce the volume of steel used and reduce the column size.

The rosy part aside, Fe 500 grade steel could pose quite a few site specific issues during construction, especially for small builders. Considering the reported failures and problems with grade Fe-500 or higher, it is advisable to use Fe 415 in residential and commercial buildings and Fe500 could be used only when the entire design is made according to that grade. This is explained below;

Groundwater Recharge by Waste Water

Prof. Asif P.Shaikh, Prof. Avinash V. Navale , Prof. Balasaheb E.Gite, Prof. Madhuri K. Rathi
Amrutvahini College of Engineering, Sangamner
University of Pune

Abstract :
Water that seeps into an aquifer is known as recharge. Recharge comes from a variety of sources, including seepage from rain and snow melt, streams, and groundwater flow from other areas. Recharge occurs where permeable soil allows water to seep into the ground. Areas in which this occurs are called recharge areas. They may be small or quite large. A small recharge area may supply all the water to a large aquifer. Streams that recharge groundwater are called losing streams because they lose water to the surrounding soil or rock.

An Idea Of Connecting Solar Panels With The Tower Of A Wind Turbine Where The Blades Of The Turbine And The Solar Panels Are Both Made From Singled-walled Carbon Nanotubes


It is known to all that both solar and wind power are beneficial in building up a sustainable lifestyle. Wind turbines are specifically designed to convert wind energy into electrical energy; A solar panel is a set of solar photovoltaic modules electrically connected and mounted on a supporting structure. A photovoltaic module is a packaged, connected assembly of solar cells. The solar module can be used as a component of a larger photovoltaic system to generate and supply electricity in commercial and residential application. The idea is to connect solar panels (made from carbon nanotubes) to the tower of a wind turbine. In order to get maximum exposure to the sun, the height of the wind turbine has to be increased. Therefore, the wind blades are made of carbon nanotubes which are lightweight material providing good strengths.

Mechanical Properties Of Recycled Aggregates Concrete

Supervised by: Dr. ATTAULLAH SHAH.

In the world of construction, concrete like other materials is playing an important role in development. concrete is a composite material which is a mixture of cement, fine aggregate , coarse aggregate and water .The major constituents of which is natural aggregate such as gravel, sand, Alternatively, artificial aggregates such manufactured sand furnace slag, fly ash, expanded clay, broken bricks and steel may be used where appropriate. It possesses many advantages including low cost, general availability of raw material, adaptability, low energy requirement and utilization under different environmental conditions.

The goal of sustainable construction is to reduce the environmental impact of a constructed facility over its lifetime. Concrete is the main material used in construction in the world. Due to increase in Construction and Demolition activities worldwide, the waste concrete after the destruction of any infrastructure is not used for any purpose which is totally loss in the economy of the country because natural resource are depleting day by day. The debris is also a major problem for municipal authorities to dispose of at particular location. It is most common practice in all over the world that most of the materials (paper, plastic, rubber, wood, concrete, etc) are being recycled to save the natural resources and environment. Concrete is such a costly material but Now a day’s waste concrete is only being used as a landfill material instead of recycling the concrete as a recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) to use for the construction purposes.

Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete

plain concrete possess very low tensile strength, limited ductility and little resistance to cracking .Internal micro cracks are inherently present in concrete and its poor tensile strength is due to propagation of such micro cracks. Fibres when added in certain percentage in the concrete improve the strain properties well as crack resistance, ductility, as flexure strength and toughness. Mainly the studies and research in fiber reinforced concrete has been devoted to steel fibers. In recent times, glass fibres have also become available, which are free from corrosion problem associated with steel fibres. The present paper outlines the experimental investigation conducts on the use of glass fibres with structural concrete. CEM-FILL anti crack, high dispersion, alkali resistance glass fibre of diameter 14 micron, having an aspect ratio 857 was employed in percentages , varying from 0.33 to1 percentage by weight in concrete and the properties of this FRC (fibre reinforced concrete) like compressive strength, flexure strength, toughness, modulus of elasticity were studied.

Over the ages as we have evolved, so has our engineering and researching skill sets. Even today, we are constantly innovating, researching and developing technology in pursuit of a sustainable future. Throughout this evolution, researches and engineers have found themselves in constant search for new and better materials to optimally manage the performance cost tradeoff in the construction sector. Many new raw materials have been discovered and many ground-breaking composite have been developed, of which not all but some have proved to be a phenomenal success. Carbon fiber is one of these materials, which is usually used in combination with other materials to form a composite. The properties of carbon fiber, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion makes them one of the most popular material in civil engineering possessing strength up to five times that of steel and being one-third its weight, we might as well call it ‘the superhero’ of the material world.
