Tallest Building

This is my new series of the blog where I will find and present to you the best the continent has with it. For this series, we will consider Russia to be on the Asian Continent and will also consider Antarctica for some sort of list.
Check out all the post in this Series: TheCoreEngieers - Continent Wise

Asia:

In Asia, there are many countries and many of them have an economy. With this, countries like China India, and many Saudi Countries tried to attract the tourism market by building taller, bigger, and huge structures. China has the highest number of tallest buildings but here Dubai an emirate country comes outstandingly in this list with WORLDS and ASIA'S Tallest building called
"BURJ KHALIFA"  
It is also the no. 1 building and in the world and tallest in the Southern and Northern Hemisphere.

Africa:

We a very few countries in the African Continent to house the tallest building leaving South Africa, Kenya, Egypt, and Tanzania housing the tallest buildings. Out of this the South Africa house the tallest building called 
"THE LEONARDO"
Continent wise tallest building

North America:

The North American Continent has 3 major countries The USA, Canada, and Mexico. In the 1990's we know the tallest building in the WORLD and in NORTH AMERICA was World Trade Center. Then after the attack, no other country was putting hands into building taller buildings. Then after many years, we saw the tallest building in the North American Continent called
"ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER"

South America:

The South American Continent has many countries of which Chile has the Tallest Building in Santiago called 
"TORRE GRAN COSTANERA"
It is also the 2nd tallest in Latin America and the 4th Tallest in the Southern Hemisphere.

Europe:

Europe consists of the highest no. of countries with a better economy, which means they should at least have large skyscrapers but it's the opposite for many years and now they have turned to build a taller buildings. as of 2020, 17 cities have more than 10 skyscrapers above 100m. As we have considered Russia as an Asian continent we see some part is in Europe and they consider Russia's tallest building as Europe's Tallest Building called
"LAKHTA CENTER"
These next 4 places are in Russia itself with taller buildings. The proper European Tallest Building is called
"THE SHARD" 
Also called the Glass Building.

Australia:

The continent of Australia and Island Country lies in the Southern Hemisphere and has the Tallest Building in the Southern Hemisphere called
"EUREKA SKYDECK"
It also has many more skyscrapers above 250 m height.

Antarctica:

You might think Antarctica might not have any tall building, but this continent has Two Building of 49 ft high located in McMurdo Station City called
"THE LONG DURATION BALLOON (LDB) PAYLOAD PREPARATION BUILDING"

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
