Factors Affecting Trip Generation in Traffic Studies

The trip generation aims at predicting the total number of trips generated and attracted to each zone of the study area. In other words this stage answers the questions to / how many trips" originate at each zone, from the data on household and socioeconomic attributes. Purpose of the trip generation studies is to predict the number of the trips to be made

Travel Demand Forecasting (Analysis)

Trip generation models strive to predict the number of trips generated by a zone. These models try to mathematically describe the decision-to-travel phase of the sequential demand analysis procedure. It may be mentioned here that typically the term trip generation is used to mean trip production -- generally the trips made from households, and trip attraction

Key Components of Confined Masonry Building

Masonry walls transmit the gravity load from the slab(s) above, down to the foundation (along with the RC tie-columns). The confined masonry walls are made up of solid clay bricks and act as bracing panels, which resist horizontal earthquake forces acting in-plane. The walls must be confined by RC tie-beams and tie-columns and should not be penetrated by

Seismic Design & Earthquake Resistant Construction

Earthquake resistance is the ability of the structure to withstand earthquakes. These structures perform better during the earthquakes and give sufficient time to its dwellers to evacuate the building, besides saving lives, reducing injuries and lowering the damages of the earthquake. These structures are intended to withstand the largest earthquake of a

Effects of Earthquake on Unreinforced Masonry Buildings

For given direction of earthquake, wall A acts as a shear wall and B acts as flexure wall. If the walls are not tied together wall B overturn (out of plane) and wall A slides (in plane) and collapse occurs. Masonry units should be tied properly. Such type of failure was among the most common, resulting from out-of-plane vibration of the walls. As the wall bends

Unconfined Compression (UC) Test

The primary purpose of this test is to determine the unconfined compressive strength, which is then used to calculate the unconsolidated undrained shear strength of the clay under unconfined conditions. According to the ASTM standard, the unconfined compressive strength (qu) is defined as the compressive stress at which an unconfined cylindrical specimen of
