Wuhan 1000 Bed Hospital

Wuhan Hospital

The year started with a lot of things, now in China, the deadly virus called Corona-virus have been spread over 83000+ (as per 8th April 2020) individuals and more than dozens of countries. The Chinese Government decided to have a new hospital for a large number of people being treated at the same time. They proposed for two 1000 capacity Hospitals in Wuhan called Huoshenshan Hospital which will be a temporary one.
The Chinese Construction giant has taken up this construction work and has assured us to complete the hospital by Monday 3rd Feb 2020 that will be the 10th day of the construction.
Wuhan 1000 bed hospital construction

Constructing such hospital needed a lot of funds hence the following are involved in helping the construction:

  • Wuhan Construction Engineering Group
  • China Mobile
  • China Unicom
  • China Telecom
  • State Grid
  • Midea 
  • Gree

Engineering Behind This:

The hospital is spread over 34000 square meters and the hospital is of 2 stories and has all the work been prefab outside of the city and then assembled here at the site. The whole area was first covered with concrete and steel block were placed on which the prefabricated base, walls, the roof will be kept which can be seen in the below photos of the site.
Wuhan hospital stared its work
 The land just outside of the main city Wuhan was selected and the work for leveling the land for the hospital stared with 100's of excavators and bulldozers and the 1st day was spent to complete this work and head to concreting the area.
Wuhan hospital concrete work
 The work of concreting was stared in the night and the work can bee is seen being done in full force to set it very fast. the concrete used was rapid settling concrete.
Wuhan hospital prefabrication work
 As soon as the concrete was set, the work of having prefab on the place was stared
Prefabricated panels for the hospital
 100's of high rise cranes were brought from different parts of the country and the prefabricated stuff was brought.
Wuhan hospital work almost complete
The work was going well and when I'm writing this blog it is the 7th day and the hospital is almost complete.

The World Health Organization has also declared World Emergency and the world's eye is set on the Chinese Government which is assuring the required steps for the construction of the hospital and individuals security.

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

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

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
