US Top Development Plan

US Top Projects:

If there is one thing on which the US can agree on these days, it is that their infrastructure is a little mess.
President, Donald Trump also focused on the same issue in a recent meet and he called for a $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill to help rebuild US"S crumbling infrastructure. To fund the plan, Trump said all federal appropriations should be leveraged by partnering with state and local government and, where appropriate, tapping into private sector investment.
Noting America "is a nation of builders," he stressed the importance of revamping roads, highways, bridges, airports, and the like.

California High-Speed Rail:

California High Speed Rail and its details

This project is sponsored by the California High-Speed Rail Authority and the Federal Railroad Administration and will have an economic benefit of $130-$260 B. The Project set in California will stretch about 800 miles of rail, with up to  24 stations. Fully completed it will join Los Angeles to San Francisco. This project was brought because the intercity train doesn't have the speed and capacity and is not reliable and the same is with quality.

Texas Freight Shuttle System:

Texas Freight Transport and its details
This project is the US-South railway department, sponsored by the Freight Shuttle International, Texas A&M Transportation Institute, FSS Construction. The project is aimed to have an economic benefit of $9.4 B.
Consideration of this project came because of the less efficient border transport and the road crossing gave it another reason, and thus the new corridor for freight transport.

I-70 East:

I-70 Highway and its details
This is a highway project and is sponsored by the Colorado Department of Transportation and aimed to recapitalize the Interstate Highway System. The project will have net economic benefits of $15.7 B
The project in Denver would remove the deteriorating, 50-year-old viaduct, rebuild i-70 below grade on the existing alignment, and place a nearly four-acre landscaped cover over the highway between Columbine Street and it also would add managed lanes in each direction of the highway fro I-25 Tower Road to improve mobility.

Mississippi River Crossing:

Mississippi Cross Bridge and its details
This highway project is in the southern US region, sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Transportation and Arkansas Department of Transportation. The project aims to have a net benefit of $5 B.
The new bridge will improve cross-river mobility for people and freight in the Memphis, Tennesse area. This includes safeguarding cross-river mobility against earthquakes, crashes, hostile acts, or another catastrophe to maintain local, regional, and national traffic flow and commerce.

Guys really sorry that can't pick up all the states projects all on this page... will try and put up things in another one.

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

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

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
