Riverfront Projects

 A Step Closer To Environment...

Riverfront Project

Right from old age people in India go for walks, relax and meditate in parks, grounds, and riverside parks with family and friends. With growing infrastructure, these places were not taken into consideration redeveloping or reengineer. Many places started deteriorating and people lost the joy to visit such places. 

So with a new vision and looking from many new cities where parks and riverfront are created which in few are artificial, the old places were also now going to redevelopment and re-engineered such as New Riverfront, Parks with proper facilities for elderly and kids.

What Riverfronts Actually Are?

Riverfronts are places that are directly built near water bodies that provide direct and indirect interaction with nature. They are also called river beautification projects. This provides new paths for a walk, cycling and places to sit and meditate, and even parks that are for kids.

Such Projects!

1. Sabarmati Riverfront Development:

Riverfront Project
This was India's first project proposed in 1960 which was only started in 2005 for 11.25 km and opened in 2012 for the public. This project is the updated and many facilities have been added to this project. Also became the benchmark of such projects in the country.

2. Gomti Riverfront Development:

Riverfront Project
The project in Uttar Pradesh came to then right after the actual project of Sabarmati Riverfront saw a great boom. Feasibility studies for 12 km stretch started in 2012 by IIT-R.

3. Yamuna Riverfront Development:

Still on Paper, by Delhi Government proposed this project for 20 km and make it possible in 5 years.

4. Hindon Riverfront Development:

This is unlike other projects, this project will focus on the development of front as well as the ecological factor of the river which is in Greater Noida proposed for 20 km.

5. Pune Riverfront Development:

Riverfront Project
The project is focused on redeveloping the intersection of the two rivers viz Mula-Mutha which will cover 40 km and will have many infra projects close to it.

6. Brahmaputra Riverfront Development:

Riverfront Project
The project is aimed to increase tourism and make moments of people across the river more easily and life better. The project will cover 20 km in length and have different Ghats and parks. 

7. Godavri Riverfront Development:

Riverfront Project
The project is 18 km in length and will have lighting shows, parks, ghats, and gardens with walking tracks and cycle tracks.

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
