Egypt's "Sisi-City"

Egypt Sisi City
New Administrative Capital

"New Cities" a new Quarantine Time series of my blog where we will see new properly planned cities of the modern and new Capitals of the World. In this blog, we will see the new Egyptian Capital named "Sisi City" which was put forth to reduce the overcrowded and polluted Capital City of Cairo. 
The country's new capital is widely known as the Lovechild and would be a legacy project of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Hence we can see why the city is named "Sisi City".
The new bigger, better than other,s and doubtless more sophisticated than any other sprawling megacity on the Planet which will be placed between the Nile River and the Suez Canal and will cost around $58 Billion. As the Capital city of Egypt, Cairo will get the most populated and hence will require this megacity and will reform the economy and reduce the congestion. This megacity is such a huge project such as mammoth with New Parliament House, more than 30+ Government Ministries, Central Bank, an Airport Larger than Heathrow, and a new financial district with many tall and super tall skyscrapers including the Tallest Tower in Africa.
Egypt Sisi City
This was not all which it includes. There will be in all 21 residential districts and the largest cathedral, theme park bigger than the Disney Land, and 10000 km of streets. The new region will house more than 1000 new schools and colleges in total and more than 500 hospitals. The list is still not over... there will be more than 700 kindergartens, more than 40000 hotel rooms 4200000 sq m of malls and yes the central park will be bigger than New York's central park.
Egypt Sisi City
This is the dream project of the ruler to bring up a mixture of modern and Islamic architecture in a huge place over 700 sq km and about the size of Singapore which is to be built in just 7 seven years when Cairo celebrates its 30th anniversary.
Egypt Sisi City
The new city will be called "New Administrative Capital" (still not given a name, 21st March 2021).
As per new updates, this city has started allowing people and many have started shifting in this city and as per the news, 6 million people will be shifting here and 20000 house units have been sold already and many civil servants have shifted here with new technology such as cashless society.

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
