Why to Study the Strength of Concrete

Strength is the ability of a material to resist an induced amount of stress that would make it fail, generally expressed in pounds per square inch (psi) or megapascals (MPa). The most analyzed and in a sense the most important mechanical property of concrete is its compressive strength.

Site Selection for Dams

The purpose of a dam is to retain and store large quantities of water in a safe way. Many considerations are analyzed. Dams can be built anywhere if you can spend enough money. However preferred site have following characteristics which lead to lower project costs. Thus alternate dam sites/axis location are evaluated for most cost effective choice.

Gotthard Base Tunnel (Rail Tunnel) Design Engineering, Construction & Cost

It is one of the most extreme engineering projects in World History, to build a 35 miles long tunnel under the Alps Mountains. It is the longest tunnel in the world. This could not be possible without world’s strongest drilling machines, each more than 3 stories high and longer than 4 football fields, drilling 24hrs a day for 6 years. The project costed $7 Billion.
