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 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.

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.

Timber Buildings !?

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 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
