Shear Wall | Functions & Loads Transfer Mechanism | Design Example of Shear Wall

Shear Wall in a Building

Definition of Shear Wall Shear walls are the vertical structural element which resist the horizontal forces acting on a building structure. Shear wall can also be defined as a wall which are reinforced & made of braced panels to carry lateral forces. The thickness of the shear wall for regular buildings can be generally in … Read more

Pre Engineered Buildings (PEB) | Components | Advantages | Design Methodology

Pre Engineered Buildings

Pre Engineered Buildings: Pre Engineered Buildings (PEB) are the buildings which are engineered at a factory and assembled at site. Usually PEBs are steel structures. Built-up sections are fabricated at the factory to exact size, transported to site and assembled at site with bolted connections. This type of Structural Concept is generally used to build … Read more

Practical Steps in Design of Concrete Buildings Concrete is arguably the most important building material which plays an important role in all building structures. Its virtue is its versatility which is its ability to be moulded to take any shape required for various structural forms. The entire process of structural planning and design requires not … Read more

What is Resilience and Modulus of Resilience?

Resilience and Modulus of Resilience

Resilience and Modulus of Resilience Resilience. Resilience is the total elastic strain energy which can be stored in the given volume of metal and can be released after unloading. it is also equal to area under load deflection curve within elastic limit. Modulus of Resilience is defined as elastic strain energy per unit volume and … Read more

Dynamic Analysis Methods for Seismic Bridge Design

Sutong Bridge china

Dynamic Analysis Methods for Seismic Bridge Design Depending on the seismic zone, geometry, and importance of the bridge, the following analysis methods may be used for seismic bridge design: The single-mode method (single-mode spectral and uniform-load analysis) assumes that seismic load can be considered as an equivalent static horizontal force applied to an individual frame … Read more
