Internship Experience Under Structural Engineering

Internship Experience:

Got Internship in CIDCO, City and Industrial Development Cooperation of Maharashtra, Navi Mumbai, and was placed in the planning and designing section under the Executive Engineer (EE).

The very first day it was an introduction to what actually they do in the office and what happens on the site by there commands. Readings Architectural drawings Foundation work, Design work, Drafting, and checking out the fieldwork going the same as in the paper come under this department.

They are the Structural Engineer's coming from Btech, Mtech and some being Ph.D. The actual work of the Structural Engineer was seen there.

They get the Architectural drawings and the need to place the beams and the columns and check the loading on the structure. They use various software like AutoCAD, Revit, ETABS, STAAP Pro, his, etc. After the Draftsman makes working drawings which can be understood by the worker on the field.

Some Site Visit:

While we were there, they got some work for Substation, Bungalow, School, and a Rehabilitation work which was to be done for the one who's land has been under the New Airport Terminal being made in Navi Mumbai.

Column Making 

Actual workWall portion

We did a field visit at that place and got exposure to the fieldwork and looking at the Draftsman work comparing on paper and actual work. Almost 20-25 housework was going on at once a d that made us encourage to do such visits again.
Then a few days we studied the foundation works and the loading effects on the software namely Etabs and AutoCAD.

Great Man-Made River (GMR)

Libya's Great Man Made River: The Great Man-Made River in Libya is one of the most ambitious Civil Engineering Project in history of mankind.  In the year 1953, the Libya Government found out not only vast oil reserves but also vast quantity of fresh water locked under the strata, most of the water was trapped around 7000-30000 years ago which is divided in 4 different basins. The first basin is named Kufra basin which is neat Egypt Border which covers almost 35000 sq kilometer which is quite deep around 2000 m deep. The other basin is in Sirte Basin which cover 10000 sq kilometer, third in Murzuk Basin and the last in Jabal Fezzan Basin covering 4800 sq kilometers area.  The GMR project will be used to transfer water to North of the country to provide water for irrigation purpose for more than 6 million  people. This will be a changing point  for Libya and the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi called it the Eighth Wonder of World. The work started in 1984 of the project and estimated to be

DDSS - Roof Truss

Design Of Roof Truss: If load from purlin, false ceiling etc are applied in between the nodes, then principal rafters or main ties are designed for combined stresses from bending and axial loads. IS 800 - 2007 provides general design procedure for the angle Purlins conforming to steel grade of Fe 410 of O, S, W  and not exceeding slope more than 30 degree based on live load of 750 N/m2. Loads on Trusses: Dead Load, Live Load, Wind Load and Snow Load are types of loads on the truss. The main in Design of Truss in small truss and some Industrial Truss. Dead Load (DL): If spacing of Truss is 4 m and pitch of truss is 1:4 then self weight of the truss is taken as, w = (l/3+6) of plan area .... in kN/m2. Then add all the dead loads with this such as GI sheet, AC sheet and Purlins weight. Then multiply with the plan area to get the actual DL. Live Load(LL): If the angle is less than 10 degree, then the LL will be directly taken as 750 N/m2. If slope of truss is more than 10 degree, live load

Timber Buildings !?

 Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for the old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure. Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high-rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT i.e. Cross Laminate Tim
