ArtScience Museum Singapore
We all know about Singapore's marina Bay Tower, but very few might know about this amazing lotus or flower-like structure right near it as the ArtScience Museum. This was built along with the Marina Bay Towers on the same site. The Architect of this plan was world-renowned Arch. Moshe Safdie. This was really a good idea of making a museum such that the roof can be used for an amphitheater.

The complex sits on reclaimed land which is essentially a sea bed which is really bad for such huge construction work. The core was then done by creating circular walls for excavation work. These walls were called diaphragm walls. The workers work in this circular area and then the work is completed and moved on. The shape of this was difficult to form for the engineers on-site and the design was reworked over and over again and used much 3D geometry software which helped them to distribute the stress and make it more safe and easy to build. This building was to be used for exhibitions and seminars and the rooftop was to be built for amphitheater was hard work. The building formwork was prefabricated and the elements were brought on-site and connected with bolts. As the concrete was poured in the outcome was a single l, uniform wall of the petal of the building.

The building gives the visitors a view of the Marina Bay and Singapore city and has a new view on each side of the building making it very attractive. The things are on the place as the investment was done by the Las Vegas Company The Marina Bay Corporation there was no delay in work and the timely work made it complete on time.

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
