Computer Aided Designing\Drawing\Drafting

Also known as the mother of all engineering, it is the oldest, most simple and useful of all engineering sciences. Civil engineering is field of engineering sciences, related to construction, design and maintenance of buildings, dams, bridges, tunnels, highways etc. These days there are some pretty sophisticated Professional Drafting Software that can help you create precise drawings without having to use the old manual tools like stencils and and drawing instruments.

Since concrete is a brittle material and is strong in compression. It is weak in tension, so steel is used inside concrete for strengthening and reinforcing the tensile strength of concrete.

When completely surrounded by the hardened concrete mass it forms an integral part of the two materials, known as "Reinforced Concrete" more [Read More]

Types of bonds

The floor of the basement of the building. It is also called cellar. The basement floor is either completely or partially below the ground floor.

A basement can be used in almost exactly the same manner as an additional above-ground floor of a house or other building. ..... read more [Read More]


Vibrations caused by earthquakes generate additional loading. Shear stresses develop which cause damage to structural elements. Since masonry, which can be stressed relatively high in compression, is weak in resisting bending and shear, collapse often results. The different failures modes of masonry are: read more [Read More]

  1. Sliding Shear Failure
  2. Diagonal Cracks
  3. Non-Structural Failure
  4. Overturning
