The Pearl Qatar

Qatar is one of the newly independent countries from the British Colony which got independence in 1971. The major source of income to the new nation is petroleum and natural gas products which account for 85% of the income and GDP. As all other Arab countries were shifting from petrol and gas income to tourism and investment sector. This all just started the route a decade or two ago but the changes seams like 50 years passed.
The Pearl Qatar
Here we are with Qatar and its Pearl project which is an Artificial island project in Doha. The Pearl is a large mix complex that consists of residential, retail, and commercial complexes which spread over 4 million square meters just 350 meters from the West Bay District of Doha. 
The Pearl Qatar
The Pearl-Qatar is the first freehold ownership project in Qatar which also has the best-mixed use commercial and residential development program. As this is an island project it has the best retail waterfront project which is the longest in Qatar. The whole project comprises 25000 residential units with more than 350 retail units. The whole plan will have 13 islands when the project is completed and will extend 8 of them to private players to build anything they wish.

There are mega-projects, which are:

Consisting of 7 towers of which 2 tallest towers stand at the entrance of The Pearl and others by the bay of the island.

Qanat Quartier:

This is a plan which has 1.6 kilometers long canal that will look like the Venice canal system but with a modern look which will also have 31000 sqm retail space with more than 190 retail shops and around 1100 parking space.

Costa Malaz:

This project consists of Villas that have direct access to the beach and the above-stated canal system. The luxury Kempinski Hotel is also part of this which is at the central bay of the precinct.

Viva Bahriya:

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
