Use of Drone & UAVs in Advancing Civil Engineering
Right after 16 years of Wright Brothers built the first plane, Drones and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)  were developed. They were used in world wars for bombing and many things. As time passed drones provided images and views of inaccessible or difficult to navigate location.

Drones and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Use:

Drones have also emerged in Civil Engineering fieldwork for:

  • Surveying
  • Aerial imaging 
  • In creating interactive 3D or topographical map
  • To find the volume of the catchment area
  • To inspect work progress

And, yes this helps in solving any issues with saving time and cost of surveyors for surveying. Many construction sites are already heavily dependent on the use of drones where the entire site in just in a few minutes, whereas in the past took several weeks or months too.

Timber Buildings !?

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 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
