Underpinning of Foundations

underpinning of foundations

The underpinning of foundations is a method done when foundations get damaged or strengthen the foundation to construct furthermore floors on the existing building. Sometimes, foundations get damaged unexpectedly suddenly after the construction of the buildings. For the remedial or precautionary measure, a method of underpinning came into work. There are visible signs like cracks… Continue reading Underpinning of Foundations

Manufactured Sand (M-Sand)-CivilLatest

Manufactured Sand (M-Sand) is artificially prepared sand manufactured by grinding hard stones (granite) up to 4.5 mm. The hard stones crushed into cubes of rock with curved edges and washed properly. Sand is the second most widely used material in the world. Properties of m-sand is different from conventional river sand in numerological and physical… Continue reading Manufactured Sand (M-Sand)

Lateral Stability of Structures

Lateral Stability of Structures- Civillatest

Lateral Stability of Structures provides resistivity from the lateral forces applied by high-velocity winds, earthquakes on high-rise buildings. It seems easy to construct a building without engineering knowledge by simply casting columns joining beams and construct the whole building. This scenario completely changes in the case of high-rise buildings. It is necessary to design the… Continue reading Lateral Stability of Structures
