    Basic Requirements for a Building

    The planning and construction of a building should be aimed at fulfilling the following requirements: 1. STRENGTH A wall should be strong enough to take up the loads safely due to its own weight, super imposed loads and lateral pressure such as wind. 2. STABILITY It should be stable against overturning by lateral forces (due […] More

    Different Types of Concrete Mix

    Concrete is made up of cement, aggregate (particles of stone) and sharp sand. When you mix these ingredients with water, they bind into a solid, hard material. In different proportions, they produce concrete of different strengths for different uses. It’s important to get the proportions right. If there’s too much aggregate, you’ll struggle to get […] More

    Circular Column Design

    Circular reinforced columns have higher strength than square or rectangular columns. Circular cross-section columns are more resistant to buckling as compared to a rectangular cross-section. Furthermore, circular sections will have uniform torsion characteristics. circular column design spreadsheet example The difference between the strength of two different types of columns: Columns having shear reinforcement in form of spirals gives better […] More

    Pad Foundations Spreadsheet

    This Spreadsheet is intended to help practising engineers to quickly optimise pad foundations. Pad foundations are generally shallow foundations, but can be deep depending on the ground conditions. They are a form of spread foundation formed by rectangular, square, or sometimes circular concrete ‘pads’ that support localised single-point loads such as structural columns, groups of […] More

    3 Types of Concrete Joints in Building Structures

    Concrete joints are used to compensate when concrete expands or shrinks with changes in temperature. Concrete joints are normally used to prevent cracks when the concrete shrinks, by creating forming, tooling, sawing and placing joint formers. The pre-planned cracks will provide a better finish concrete product and will be formed in specific locations where those […] More
