Civil Engineering Marvel's

Civil Engineering Marvel

The projects we will see might help define Civil Engineering Projects of the future:

The thinking of people also hasn't changed today, but the rate of change and demand for the development of ever more sophisticated, new and emerging technologies has. Lets see what we have...

1. The Queensferry Crossing, Scotland :

It is the LONGEST of the bridges that comprise the cross forth corridor. It cost cost 1.3 billion euro and runs 2.7 km and is the longest three tower, cable stayed bridge in the world

2. Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge :

It is the LONGEST Sea-Bridge ever built. This Civil Engineering Project has a series of islands and tunnels which connect this longest sea bridge to Hong Kong and Zhuhai to Macau. It stretches over 50 km and is designed to last 120 years before even any maintenance work will be needed.

3. Jeddah Tower, Saudi Arabia :

When completed it will be the TALLEST of the skyscrapers in the world by standing at 1 km tall. It will also be sustainable, and built under the auspices of the architectural philosophy of the Global Environment Contextualism.

4. Central Park Tower, New York :

Currently underconstruction, the SUPER SUSTAINABLE, the New Central Park Tower in New York has been designed under the Philosophy of Global Environment Contextualism. This tower has a cantilever section which made this in the news of engineers and designers.

5. The Shanghai Tower, China :

The Shanghai Tower is one of the BIGGEST most energy-efficient buildings in the world and has the highest LEED rating possible- Platinum. It was designed to be wind resistant that saved thousands of tons of steel and relies heavily on renewable energy sources.

6. The Man-Made River Project, Libya :

When completed it will be the BIGGEST irrigation project ever undertaken. It will consist of 2800 km of pipes, 1399 wells and will transport 6 million cubic-meter a day. Also will be the longest ongoing project which the mankind will record of.

Many more projects along side in other sides of the world are going on and are/will be the best created by us Civil Engineers.

But from my findings in all the post on the internet I could see that the power and money China puts up is immense and large and thus if something big is coming up in other side of the world, China will respond in its way. But this is good for the Civil community, in a way we get new ideas and new situation which helps in tecaling things further for better future.

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 i.e. Cross Laminate Timber which …
