Mivan Formwork

Mivan Formwork
A strong and sturdy formwork that is made of aluminum and is known for its smooth and even finish - Mivan Formwork, now widely accepted and used in the construction of all types of construction. As a result of its use for mass housing projects and construction, formwork is often used repetitively. Easily installed, adaptable, and modifiable in response to changes in structural and MEP designs.

The design and panels have specific names and positions pre-declared. The nomenclature for mivan form is

After placing the formwork around the reinforcement, we can now start the concrete pouring process, and thus we need to know the capacity and strength of the formwork. The formwork can carry up to 7-8 tonnes per square meter while its self-weight is around 17-18 kg per square meter.
The vertical panels can be removed after 12 hours of concrete pouring or when it reaches 10% of strength and horizontal deck panels after 36 hours of pouring or when it reaches 30-40% of desired strength. The panels are to be cleaned as soon as they are removed with brushes and scrubbers. The panels thus can be used around 200 times due to this durability and the easy modification process also creates a minimum slab cycle of 7 days.

At last, I would like to bring in the pros and cons of this Mivan Formwork.

  1. Faster slab cycle
  2. More efficiency
  3. Homogeneous concrete components are obtained with minimal joints
  4. A high-quality concrete finish is obtained
  5. Panels can be reused up to 200-250 times
  6. Unskilled laborers can work on this too
  1. The initial investment is more
  2. The more raw material is consumed
  3. No modification can be done as all members are RCC members
  4. More Steel is Consumed
  5. Panels are short width and require joints which create leaks and seepages

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
