Shock Table Dynamic Test - Structural Dynamics

In the absence of a shaking table, some laboratories have developed simple simulators for dynamic testing of structures. One such kind of a facility, named as the shock table, is installed at the University of Roorkee, India and was developed by Keightly.

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.

To Determine Moisture Content of Soil By Oven Drying Method

The water-content determination is a routine laboratory procedure. ASTM has designeated it with a Standard, ASTM D-2216-90 which can be found in “ASTM Standards vol. 4.08”, and also AASHTO T-265, found under “AASHTO Materials: Part II: Tests”. This is a laboratory procedure to determine the amount of water Ww present in a quantity of soil in terms of its

Properties & Tests on Paints

Important buildings were once designed and put together by master masons who knew how to work with stone, and understood the advantages and limitations of the material. Stone structure should be a combination of structural firmness, technical commodity and aesthetic delight. Ensure proper wall construction. The wall thickness should not exceed 450mm.

Pseudo Dynamic (PsD) Tests - Non Linear Structural Dynamics Techniques

PDT is a substructure technique which includes applying slowly varying forces to a structural model. The motions and deformations observed in the test specimens are used to infer the inertial forces that the model would have been exposed to

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

Procedure for Concrete Compression Test

The compression test shows the best possible strength concrete can achieve in perfect conditions. The compression test measures concrete strength in the hardened state. Field concrete samples are prepared, cured and tested according to ASTM standard procedures. Specimens are prepared from concrete taken from different construction sites. Following

Laboratory Investigation of Hooke’s Law

Prepare the test specimen that is steel bar and find its diameter at tree different places and find its man value. Mark two points 8" a part of 2 ft long steel bar. Insert the bar in jaws for gripping the steel bar and select suitable bar on UTM. Place the steel bar and fix it.

Standard Values for Liquid Limit of Soil and Limitations of L.L Test

The liquid limit of a soil is the moisture content, expressed as a percentage of the mass of the oven-dried soil, at the boundary between the liquid and plastic states The moisture content at this boundary is arbitrarily defined as the liquid limit and is the moisture content at a consistency as determined by means of the standard liquid limit apparatus. It is one of

Determination of Deflection in Over Hanging Beams

Take the beam model and place it on the table. it should be kept horizontally and firmly. Determine the length of the beam and also dimension of cross section.

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.

Experimental study of Laminar, Transitional and Turbulent Flow

The type of flow in which the particles move in a straight line in the form of a thin parallel sheets is known as the Laminar flow. Laminar flow denotes a steady condition where all stream lines follow parallel paths. Under this condition, the dye

Hydraulic Jump Experiment

Hydraulic jumps are very efficient in dissipating the energy of the flow to make it more controllable & less erosive. In engineering practice, the hydraulic jump frequently appears downstream from overflow structures (spillways), or under flow structures (sluice gates), where velocities are height. A hydraulic jump is formed when liquid at high velocity discharges into

Sieve Analysis of Coarse Grained Soil

Arrange different types of sieves in order of there decreasing size of opening. Find the total weight of the given soil sample and pour it in the top sieve.

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
