How to Build a Stone Wall?

To assist in your stacking, sort the stone by size; setting aside the smallest pieces to use as shims (these will help level unsteady larger stones). Prepare for this activity by stretching well and always lift using your arms and legs, not your back Shims (shown far right), or smaller stones, help level unsteady larger pieces. Map out the design by digging a trench about 6" deep and as wide as

Lab Report of Los Angeles Abrasion Test on a Given Sample

The Los Angeles test is a measure of degradation of mineral aggregates of standard gradings resulting from a combination of actions including abrasion or attrition, impact, and grinding in a rotating steel drum containing a specified number of steel spheres. The Los Angeles (L.A.) abrasion test is a common test method used to indicate aggregate toughness and abrasion

To Determine the Softening Point of Bitumen

Bitumen is viscous elastic material without sharply defined melting points. They gradually become softer and less viscous as the temperature rises. This is the reason why the softening point of bitumen is determined. Softening point is not a melting point, bituminous material do not melt but instead gradually change from semi solids to liquids on application to heating. Softening point is indicative of the tendency of

To Perform Ductility Test on Bitumen

Ductility is the property of bitumen that permits it to undergo great deformation or elongation. Ductility is defined as the distance in cm, to which a standard sample or briquette of the material will be elongated without breaking. Dimension of the briquette thus formed is exactly 1 cm square. The bitumen sample is heated and poured in the molds assembly placed on a plate.

Video on Method of Terrestrial Photogrammetry

The principal is exactly similar to plan table surveying, it may be stated as “The position of the object with ref to the base line is given by the intersection of the rays drawn to it form each end of the base line” In plane tabling most of the work is executed in the field while in this method it is done in the office.

Steps in Designing a Transfer Floor

Design of reinforced concrete transfer floors, although routinely performed by structural design engineers, is a very challenging task. The transfer floors are commonly used in multi-storey buildings, and they are major structural elements carrying a number of floors. Normally the entire building, 10 to 15 levels, is carried by a transfer slabs. The major problem is the evaluation

Methods of Locating New Stations in Surveying - Ranging and Chaining

In surveying relative position of points are located by measurement from at least two points of reference, whose positions must be known already. Ranging is process of establishing Intermediate points on straight line between the terminal points or stations. Two methods can be employed depending on the intervisibility : Direct Ranging, Indirect Ranging: It Is used

How to Write a Soil Investigation Report | Lab Test Report

Soils reports, also called “geotechnical soils reports” are prepared by a licensed geotechnical engineer or a registered civil engineer experienced in soils engineering. A soils report may be required depending on the type of structure, loads and location of the structure. The report gives understanding of earth conditions affecting a building. They are required in areas

To Find out the Reaction of Simply Supported Beam

Condition of equilibrium for vertical parallel forces acting on a body is Sum of all the force s should be zero. It should satisfy the principle of moments . If we take moment about a point on moments should be equal to anti clockwise moments.

Reverse or Ogee Curve - Definition and Making

Combination of two or more simple circular curves of different radius having their curvature in the same direction. Essentially, a compound curve consists of two curves that are joined at a point of tangency and are located on the same side of a common tangent. Though their radii are in the same direction, they are of different values. This is the process of establishing

Quasi Static Test - What, Why, How

The quasi-static cyclic tests can be used to conduct both basic and proof tests. In quasi-static tests, loads and/ or displacements are applied at slow rates. Normally, such types of tests are carried out to study structural performance of structures and structural

What is Plaster of Paris and How to Make it at Home?

Plaster of Paris is a Calcium sulfate semi-hydrate (CaSO4,½ H2O) derived from Gypsum, a calcium sulfate di-hydrate (CaSO4, 2H2O), by firing this mineral at relatively low temperature and thus reducing it to powder. In 1700’s, Paris was already the “Capital of plaster” since all the walls of wooden houses were covered with plaster, as a protection against fire. The King
