Failure Modes in Rock and Soil Slopes | Slope Failure

Failure Modes Introduction Slope failures are essentially natural hazards that occur in many areas over the world. Popularly known as landslides, slope failures describe a wide variety of mechanisms that cause the outward or downward movement of slope-forming materials like rock, soil or landfills. Landslide can result either from rock failure or soil failure. While… Read More »

Underwater Construction | Underwater Construction Techniques | Caissons | Cofferdam

Underwater Construction Underwater construction is a method on how to place the concrete underwater. During the construction of bridges, dams or any structure where the foundation is most likely to lie underwater, the underwater construction is opted. Construction in water poses many difficulties especially in the places where the depth is considerable. During underwater construction,… Read More »

5 Reasons Why Prestressed Concrete is Required | Advantages of PSC

Limitations of Reinforced Concrete without Prestressing Dead loads, imposed loads, deformations and load-independent effects such as temperature changes and shrinkage induces tensile forces in a RC beam. Since the tensile strength of concrete is low steel reinforcement bars are embedded in the concrete to carry all internal tensile forces. Prestressed concrete is an advanced form… Read More »

Artificial Islands | Construction of Artificial Island | Photos | Facts

Introduction to Artificial islands An artificial island is an island constructed by man rather than created by natural means. They are constructed by expanding the existing islets and by construction on existing reefs or merging some natural islets into a bigger island. Artificial islands are usually constructed by land reclamation. Land reclamation is a process… Read More »
