Neom City
Saudi Arabia.
    Saudi Arabia is a country with the second-largest oil reserves and that has been the fuel fr the world and fuel for the economy of Saudi Arabia. But with passing years, the shift from renewable to nonrenewable is affecting the countries economy and largely affects the revenue to the central administration. 
    They found a way to increase revenue by creating a new tourist destination and creating new places which attract foreign investors and develop the state infrastructure. Not only Saudi Arabia, but many Arab nations like United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Oman, Qatar, and Kuwait have also planned their future new cities, tourist spots, and investment directing ideas.
Neom City
    The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia has put forth the idea of the future city called "NEOM CITY". It is situated to the north of the Red Sea, where the Eqypt also has a beautiful city which attracts many tourists. The country will also link the two countries with the bridge, which will be the first to connect Asia and Africa which will bypass Israel. 
The Line City
    The city is shown to be the best and first future-proof city which will focus on passenger transit, garden and green area, an underground transit system. There is a proposed city within this NEOM CITY  which is called the "LINE CITY" which will be a straight city stretching over 170 km. Width expansion restricted and a single public transit road and line which will run underground and place above ground will be full of green gardens and public places. The infra will be world set to blend with nature. 
Neom City Transit System
The city is said to have no car, no street (as they are underground), and will have no carbon emission which is because it will focus on public transit which will have a system same as hyperloop and have high-speed pods for some region. This is called SPINE connect system.
    Such cities are much needed which brings us closer to nature and focuses on public sector development rather than the commercial sector. But are there any such straight city currently existing? YES. The new capital of Brazil was planed with a central main road and city build on both sides, but there was random development in the vicinity which destroyed the idea and look of the city. The other example can be seen in Netherland and North European countries.

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
