    Column reinforcement

    The load of a particular level is transferred to the foundation by the columns which require the columns to have a high compression capacity yet the tension capacity is also important as the loads due to lateral load like wind load may also be borne by these. First the vertical bars positioned according to the […] More

    Advantages of Suspension Bridges

    Suspension bridges are adopted in places where it is difficult to construct other type of bridges. For very large spans, they can be adopted economically. In a suspension bridge, tensile stresses are predominant. Thus it requires high tensile ropes, which are economical than mild steel trusses etc. During construction, temporary central supports do not need […] More
