Jubail Industrial City

Jubail 2 Project
"New Cities" a new Quarantine Time series of my blog where we will see new proper planned cities of the modern and new Capitals of World. In this blog we will see Saudi Arabia, with world's most oil reserves and wealth from this becomes one of the best place to invest. Jubail Industrial City is the biggest Civil Engineering Project in modern time and is getting much bigger with vast resources and planning by the king.
Jubail 2 Project
Jubail 2 is the new biggest expansion project of the city, industrial and residential  area with $11 billion from 2006 to 2016 and got an expansion for more 5 years. This expansion included greenfield university for 18000 students, roads, bridges, medical centers, power and water facilities. This project evolved into major petrochemical market and technical and business market.
Check More Cities:

The major highlight of the new expansion are:

  •  Area for 22 new primary industries.
  • Expansion of King Fahd Industrial Port.
  • Refurbishment of Pipeline (Recycling).
  • Expansion of residential area for 120000 residents.
Jubail 2 Project
The project consist of 2 ports, and has 44 sq km of artificial harbor which protected by 18 km long breakwater. The commercial port have 20 berth that can hold all the cargo and industrial supply of the city. The new refinery tank farm are laid over 178 hectare. It have development of 9 km long causeway, the road system consist of 860 km of road, 63 bridges including 327 km long industrial belt. For the coolant in the industry, to tackle this 4.0 m diameter pipe were laid to serve the industries with seawater.
Jubail 2 Project
This project being constructed in four phases over 22 years, where the kingdom is hoping to stimulate the mining industry.

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
