Methods of Natural Seasoning of Wood

The basic principle is to stack the timber so that plenty of air can circulate around each piece. The timber is stacked with wide spaces between each piece horizontally, and with strips of wood between each layer ensuring that there is a vertical separation too. Air can then circulate around and through the stack, to slowly remove moisture. In some cases, weights can be placed

How to find Bearing Capacity of Soil

Analytic method i.e. through bearing capacity equations like using Terzaghi equation, Meyerhof equation, Hansen equation etc. Correlation with field test data e.g. Standard penetration test (SPT), Cone penetration test (CPT) etc. On site determination of bearing capacity e.g Plate load test, Pile load test. Presumptive bearing capacity (recommended bearing capacity,

How and When to Paint and its Purpose

Before painting, wood siding and trim should be treated with a paintable water-repellent preservative or simple water repellent. This can be done by brush after the siding or trim is up, or by dipping before it’s installed. If you work by brush, all lap and butt joints in solid wood or all panel edges should be especially well saturated. Allow at least two warm, sunny days for

How to Get a Project Contract

Contract has got a key role in any kind of project i.e. construction, Procurement, Demolishing etc and even in most of the firms there are special persons for it who solely deals in Project contract means how to. There are three ways in which construction contracts are awarded: Competitive awards Negotiated awards, Combination competitive - negotiated awards

How HydroPower Plants Work

As people discovered centuries ago, the flow of water represents a huge supply of kinetic energy that can be put to work. Water wheels are useful for generating motion energy to grind grain or saw wood, but they are not practical for generating electricity. Water wheels are too bulky and slow. Hydroelectric plants are different. They use modern turbine generators to produce

How and Where to Plan Reservoirs

A natural or artificial place where water is collected and stored for use, especially water for supplying a community, irrigating land, furnishing power, etc is known as reservoir. One major consideration in the development of any surface water resource project is the structural stability of the reservoir which should be capable of containing safely the projected volumes of water

Determination of Bending Moment in Beam

Take a beam model and place it on a table in such away that it should be horizontal and firm. Record the length and cross section. Set the deflection gauge at a point where the deflection is to be measured.

Flexural Strength of Concrete - Applications and Problems

Flexural strength is one measure of the tensile strength of concrete. It is a measure of an un-reinforced concrete beam or slab to resist failure in bending. It is measured by loading 6 x 6 inch (150 x 150-mm) concrete beams with a span length at least three times the depth. The flexural strength is expressed as Modulus of Rupture (MR) in psi (MPa) and is determined

To Perform Marshall Stability Test (ASTM D6927)

Marshal test is extensively used in routine test programs for the paving jobs. The stability of the mix is defined as a maximum load carried by a compacted specimen at a standard test temperature of 600 °C. The flow is measured as the deformation in units of 0.25 mm between no load and maximum load carried by the specimen during stability test (flow value may also be

Procedure for Concrete Sample Preparation

Concrete is placed in the molds using a trowel in three layers of approximately equal depth and is remixed in the mixing pan with a shovel to prevent segregation during the molding of specimens. The trowel is moved around the top edge of the mold as the concrete is discharged in order to ensure a symmetrical distribution of the concrete and to minimize

To Determine The Metacentric Height Of a Ship Model

The intersection of the lines passing through the original center of buoyancy and center of gravity of the body and the vertical line through the new center of buoyancy.

What are Survey Stations and How to Select a Survey Station

Survey Stations is a point of importance at the beginning and end of chain line. There are two types of survey stations: ... These are the end of survey line i.e. which connects boundaries. Line joining Main Stations is called Main Survey Line or Chain Line.

To Measure COD of WasteWater using Open Reflux Method

KMn04 was used as oxidizing agent for many time pb with KMno4 was that different value of COD obtained due to strength change of KMno4. BOD value obtained greater than COD with KMno4 means KMno4 was not oxidizing all the substances.
