Chunabhatti BKC Flyover

Chunabhatti-BKC Flyover

As we all say, the local train is the lifeline of Mumbai but there are some commuters who travel to there office by road. There are two major express ways, Western Express way and Eastern Express way but there are only limited roads which connect both and allow one to go from east to west of the city. The major one's were Powai road, JVLR and SCLR which from past few years have reached to there maximum capacity.
To overcome this and provide people a new but also better way to move from one side to other was a linking road. The idea of new bridge over Mithi river was chosen and connecting it from Chunabhatti (Eastern Express) to BKC (Western Express) was done. It not only has been completed in time but also has proven to be economical and time saving for the commuter as it save around 45 minutes.

Chunabhatti BKC Flyover and its details for better Mumbai roads
Chunabhatti-BKC Flyover
Its a four lane dual carriageway road which starts from Chunabhatti on main express way road and passes over the Mithi river and part of BKC and a short route that connects to Western Express way. Modern construction methods and pre-stressed concrete decks were used for the development, the deck is made of whale base shape and whole flyover has plants in the middle which give a better look to the flyover.

Me, myself have experienced this route and can definitely advise you to go from this route that will surely save your time and money. The bridge also has new elements and as it passes very close to residential building the noise barrier are also installed.
My case study which says on the Mumbai Floods has also this bridge in the making which is reducing the width of the Mithi River and thus reducing the flow, but also has benefit of reducing the petroleum usage by the cars.

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
