Kacchi Dargah Bidupur Bridge

There are over 16 bridges on the Ganga River and most of which most of them are in Bihar. This bridge addition will be most interesting as it will be the longest on the Ganga River and Longest Bridge in India too. The bridge will connect Patna and Hajipur with a span of 9.76 km and connect the NH30 to NH333. The bridge is also planned so as to reduce the load from the Mahatma Gandhi Setu and also reduce travel time for the regional passengers.

The construction of the bridge started in July 2017 and the construction saw 67 well foundations constructed in the first phase in the Diyara from both banks on each side of the river. The construction will be completed by the end of 2021 and is currently in an advanced stage with major work fast-forward and given top priority to be completed as soon as possible. The overall cost of the construction is estimated at around 3110 crores with the project being completed with a joint venture between Korean and home ground company Larsen and Toubro (L&T). The section of the span are precast and then fitted on-site and the major spans are suspended to increase the gap between the two piers.

As the bridge is above a river, but there will be no problem in navigation and the bridge is termed "All Span Navigational". The bridge is also one of the first in Bihar with 6 lane expressway bridge and one of its kind connecting south and north Bihar and also act as an external ring road of Patna.

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
