Redevelopment: Mumbai

Redevelopment : Mumbai 

Being the financial capital of India and home to Bollywood, many people see Mumbai as a place to get opportunity to get their dream come true.

Redevelopment of city of dreams

Bombay to Mumbai .....

This might feel like today's thought but the migration of people to this so called Island Vity has never dropped, and so the housing burden too.
If we see in past, Mumbai as a city, people used to travel less to their working space. But with time the city space got filled and people needed to settle a bit far from the city. The original settlement called as challs also began to feel the need of recreation and increasing the floors with facilities.

Redevelopment of the city for better future

The city has over 100's of challs and many mills which had been moved far from the city by new By-laws. The city saw great redevelopment and many new tall tower. We can say them skyscraper till early 2010. After that year many new proposals were made and much taller skyscrapers came into the city which were of skyscrapers category, and the price per sq ft also increased as a rocket. Also as the city FSI was 1.5 earlier ,now it is 3, the city needed gretaer FSI for more space so more people can leave near to the work space, which will eventually reduce the price and also reduce burden on the public transportation system.

Redevelopment and metro projects for the city of dream

The city has seen so much development that the Lifeline of the city "Local" also needed some reformation but the current situation doesn't allow much change and increase in the coverage over city and thus the Government planned MUMBAI METRO 🚇 project which will connect the city in better and complete manner.

Metro station Mumbai

New place to leave, new transportation system and many more changes in the economic side too has lead this City Of Dream to a new place and thus I named this article as Redevelopment : Mumbai

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
