River Bank Erosion | Causes | River Bank Erosion Control Methods in Detail

River Bank Erosion Rivers are dynamic structures. They change their flow patterns continuously and naturally. These changes affect river bank soil stabilization because river bank absorbs the energy. River bank erosion is a part of this changing nature. When banks of a river wear away by watercourse, it is called river bank erosion. Mostly river … Read more River Bank Erosion | Causes | River Bank Erosion Control Methods in Detail

Biofuel & Plastic Waste Management | Production of Bio-Fuel | PPT

Synthetic bio fuel produced in Laboratory

Importance of Plastic Waste Management Plastic is one of the most successful manufacturing materials in post-world war era. It’s due to its high specific-strength, toughness, chemical inertness and cost-effectiveness. On the other hand, global production of plastic material has increased more than 200-fold from 1950 to 2020. Today over 100 million tonnes of plastic is … Read more Biofuel & Plastic Waste Management | Production of Bio-Fuel | PPT

Shrinkage Cracking in Concrete Structures | Long Term Effects

Shrinkage crack

Long-term Shrinkage Cracking of Concrete Internal or external restraints in a concrete structural element may resist free shrinkage of concrete, over time this leads to Shrinkage Cracking. In concrete structures, the volumetric reduction that happen due to the loss of moisture by evaporation is known as the shrinkage of concrete. This deformation is time dependent … Read more Shrinkage Cracking in Concrete Structures | Long Term Effects

Overview of Offshore Structures in Civil Engineering | Classifications, Examples

Fig-3. Semi-submersible offshore structures

Offshore Structures Structures which are designed and build in deep waters are known as offshore structures. Hence, these structures are much different form conventional buildings which are constructed in land mass. They are exposed to harsh environmental loads such as wave loads, current loads, ice loads along with other significant forces such as earthquake and … Read more Overview of Offshore Structures in Civil Engineering | Classifications, Examples

Bearings & Azimuths in Surveying | Calculation & Conversion of Bearings and Azimuths | Example

Bearings & Azimuths

Bearings & Azimuths in Surveying Angles and lengths are the basic measurements in surveying. Angles in surveying are classified as either horizontal or vertical, based on the plane in which they are measured. Horizontal angles are the elementary observations required for determining bearings & azimuths. Determining the positions of points and orientations of lines often … Read more Bearings & Azimuths in Surveying | Calculation & Conversion of Bearings and Azimuths | Example
