Border Roads Organisation (BRO)

Border Roads Organisation (BRO)
With over 15000 kilometers long border to be protected and vast remote and economically backward North and North Eastern Region with inadequate road communication network, to support the future of the nation and give a progressive development to the various parts of the nation. With this, the moment of any military troops becomes easy and moreover helps the various section of the country to connect with people who get disconnected during the rainfall and snow season.
Border Roads Organisation (BRO)
Border Roads Organisation works in the development and maintenance of Indian roads to make them connected to the various parts of India. The formation happened in 7th May 1960, for the purpose of Civil Engineering Infrastructural Development in the border area. The organization comes under the Ministry of Defense. The organization is also staffed with officers and troops which are a part of the Indian Army's Engineering Crops. 
Border Roads Organisation (BRO)
This is not only in our country, it is also a part of our neighboring countries such as Afghanistan, Bhutan, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka. The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) also operates in 21 states and 1 union territory. Currently, not only the 15000 long borders but also holds on 32000+ kilometers of roads and 12000+ meter of the bridge in our country. The organization was also involved in the construction of the Rohtang Pass Tunnel completed in 2019. 
The organization also works in disaster management and reconstruction in case of floods, tsunami, and earthquakes. As mentioned above that the organization works overseas infrastructure development with making linking roads and bridges to neighboring countries.

The Border Roads Organisation currently holds on 18 projects in our country which are named as :

  1. Arunank
  2. Beacon
  3. Brahmank
  4. Chetak
  5. Deepak
  6. Dantak
  7. Himank
  8. Hirak
  9. Pushpak
  10. Sampark
  11. Setuk
  12. Seawk
  13. Shivalik
  14. Swastik
  15. Udayak
  16. Vartak
  17. Vijayak
  18. Sela Tunnel
The current major works happening under Project Arunank, Pushpak, and Swastik.

Some funny fact:

When you will travel in Jammu & Kashmir and Ladak you will see many road signs on the road to keep you on the road to avoid accidents on curves and slopes. Some of the captions are:
FEEL THE CURVES
DO NOT TEST THEM

BE MR LATE
THEN LATE MR

BE GENTLE
ON
MY CURVES 

For some inconvenience they say:

Sorry For 
-Oooh
-Ahhh
-Ouch
INCONVENIENCE REGRETTED

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

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

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
