What Is Thermal Bridging?

Thermal Bridging
As we know heat makes its way from heated space towards the outside from path where it can have the least resistance. A Thermal Bridge acts as a bridge transferring heat or cold thermal energy through the member or temperature difference between inside and outside. 
Thermal Bridging helps in decreasing interior room surface temperatures and an increase in heat loss. This can also be a passage for moisture transfer. Nowadays many places heat is so high that moisture transfer can be neglected.
The steel studs are designed as thermal bridges to provide maximum possible conductive energy transfer across a wall using a minimum amount of material. Heat transmission through walls is the greatest factor in energy loss in a residential building which can range from 8% to 40%
Thermal Bridging
If we study in deep, we can not make out how high heat losses are due to thermal bridges. And, members which act as thermal bridges the heat flow density changes and usually result in a reduction in surface temperature. Aerogels, it is material with the highest thermal insulation value. But, the material is very fragile to use as a building material. The aerogels are transformed to, by nano-technology, called Thermablok Composite. Thermablok is used to control thermal bridging in walls

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
