  • Why AutoCAD is not Enough to be a DESIGN ENGINEER ?
    15 September 2020

    AutoCAD is used for drawing preparation by Draftsmen. The inputs & the instructions for the drafters is given by Design Engineers. No Qualification is required to be a Draftsmen. Exposure on AutoCAD with normal training is enough.

  • Shell Element Vs Membrane in ETABS
    27 June 2019

    When we go with the modeling type of the slab in ETABS as MEMBRANE then the load distribution from the slab to the beam will be based on YIELD LINE THEORY

    When a Load is applied to MEMRANE objects in ETABS, the load (100% of the applied load) is transferred directly to supporting structural objects.

  • Scale up the Base Shear(Vb) while performing Dynamic Analysis, Why ?
    20 October 2017

    The TIME PERIOD (Ta) is inversely proportional to the design lateral force (BASE SHEAR) of the building. i.e 
    Less the TIME PERIOD (Ta) of the building more the BASE SHEAR of the building 
    Similarly, STIFFNESS of the building is inversely proportional to the TIME PERIOD (Ta) of the building. i.e
    More the stiffness of building less the TIME PERIOD (Ta) of the building.

  • Recycling Waste Products into the Construction Industry
    16 December 2019

    There is an established tradition for salvaging and recycling building and construction materials. For hundreds of years after the end of the Roman empire, later groups plundered their buildings as a source for new materials, often skilfully worked stone masonry and fired clay products were thus incorporated into altogether cruder new buildings.
