Civil Engineering is a profession of designing and executing structural works that serve the general public, like houses, buildings, roads, etc. A Civil Engineer is an engineer trained in the design and construction of public works, such as bridges or dams, and other large facilities.


why do you have to modifiy your ps2
As a prefix, it modifies an adjective to give the sense of  extremeness: Absolute Zero is hyper-cold.    As slang, it's a short form of "hyperactive"; i.e. wound up and  moving a lot, usually due to some medical condition.

  Land Surveyors use markers as reference points for topographic mapping. Companies such as NRG Surveys will install a series of markers and using specialist measuring equipment will measure the precise 3 dimensional cartesian coordinates of each marker with reference to a network. The network...
A good topic for environmental and transportation engineering is  comparing the affects of transportation engineering on the  environment. You can then discuss how environmental engineering can  mitigate those problems.
The  maximum bending moment is located at the point where shear is  zero. This occurs because shear is the mathematical derivative of   bending moment, and the  maximum bending moment occurs when its derivative (i.e. Shear)  is zero.
pH stands for "potential Hydrogen". In the  field of civil engineering, pH is a factor that is considered in  corrosion control, coagulation and water softening. All the pH  related processes are controlled by civil engineers. pH test is  beneficial to check the A controlled value of pH is...

With wood glue!! I'm serious you can buy it at Home Depot or any other hardware store.
Yes. The lifting points by the poles are reverse suspended by rope (is a shaped frame structure) which the pegs add the stability to set the structure.This structure could be duplicated on an roof with the tent frame built up side down, the "tent frame structure" would still exist, of course...
A hybrid bridge is a device with four branches  that are systematically arranged in a way that input signal is  equally divided between the adjacent branches. These are also known  as hybrid junction or hybrid tee.

The portal and cantilever methods are two approximate methods for analysing tall buildings for lateral (wind or siesmic) loads - nowadays used for preliminary design purposes. The portal method is suitable for buildings likely to deform in shear mode. It is based on the distribution of base shears...

Crushed marble stone has a low absorption rate hence less water is required which means better strength. Also the marble typically has a denser specific gravity.

i am not sure it might be 250 ml
A simply supported beam requires less work to install. However, its  design may not be as sturdy as a fixed beam.
The grading of aggregate influences the mix proportions for a specified workability and water-cement ratio. Coarser the grading leaner will be mix which can be used. Very lean mix is not desirable since it does not contain enough finer material to make the concrete cohesive.The type of aggregate...
This depends on their popularity and relative skill level.
ceramics was made from talck, its atoms are uncompressed
  Coefficient of consolidation (Cv) is a measure of time it takes for a soil to consolidate during the lab test.
i don't know help me please so i can get a good grade maybe you should look in the TEXTBOOK! that's what I did. it should be on page 341 of your text book. read the defention. its really simple, genetic engineering is messing with the DNA to improve it. so the benefits of engineering plants...
A lot of people now days say the Romans weren't civilised because they are comparing the Roman ways to now a days! If you compared the Romans ways to the Tudors for example you would say they were civilised because the Romans have a way of keeping hygienic and the Tudors didn't, the Romans have a...
  Answer   The term building engineer refers to a custodian of a building. For large skyscrapers, he may be a professional with a degree---not sure.   A civil engineer is one who designs buildings, bridges, roads, etc.

From the ancient days itself, the column has been used as a re-enforcement for many of the infrastructures and has also been recognized as a work of art representing a sense of style and grandeur. If you are looking to build one, here are the tips on to get started : Required Tools : Masonry brush...
Railway tracks have gaps to allow for expansion when the tracks  heat up. As the tracks get hotter, they expand and get slightly  larger. Without the gaps, the tracks would buckle from the force of  the expansion. They have fishplates located between the joins to  force the rails back into...
Under reinforced is that in which provided steel ratio is less than balanced steel ratio. Concrete beams are designed as under reinforced beams. The reason is that the failure start by yielding of steel instead of crushing of concrete.Mian Yaqoob

The main advantage to reinforced concrete is that it has a  "inherent structural strength. The disadvantage would be in certain  climates where it is cold as the heat is able to leave the  structure.
If you mean the use of large piles sunk into mud or sand, then the two most famous cities that come to mind are Amsterdam, built on wooden piles, and more recently Shanghai built on deep concrete piles.
The frost line refers to the depth to which the groundwater in soil  is expected to freeze. In New Jersey, it is between 36 and 42  inches.

1.Higher spans can be obtained by reducing no.of column supports. 2.Concrete sections can be reduced. 3.Rebar and concrete can be economized. 4.Used for precast concrete members particularly for bridges. Pandu R Reddy.BijjamM.Tech(structures)
One famous truss bridge was the Tacoma Bridge.
Circles are the strongest natural shape, this bridge is not affected by the strains of tension, and the shape naturally distributes weight to the ground. Unfortunatly, arch bridges cannot span large distances (no more that 800 feet), otherwise they are overcome by the weight, because the angle of...
A strip foundation is best known as the lowest part of your  structure. The strip foundation is the first piece of supporting  layer that is used with a foundation.
  There is an old joke: "What's the difference between civil and mechanical engineers? Mechanical engineers build weapons -- civil engineers build targets." Yuck yuck.   In reality civil engineering involves the design and construction of buildings, roadways, bridges, railroads, water supply,...
Im guessing that you mean field test of concrete and not cement. Typically testing for air content, slump, and temperature are performated as outlined by ACI.
There are too many variables to provide an answer to this question. Answers can range from 0.25 million to 21 million or more, depending on what the ozone is being used for, and how many "study fees", and how "pretty" the treatment facility needs to be. Flocculation / pretreatment using ozone is...

Depends on the product or structure you are pouring. Usually highest strength concrete will have a low water to cement ratio and 8 -10% silica fume.
The constant left, right, in unison, like a beating drum, can set up a resonance and make the bridge sway or fail.
The simplest way to calculate the pipe diameter would be using flow rate & velocity in the formula, diameter=root((4*Flow)/(Pi*Velocity)).  In order to find the velocity from pressure we can use the formula Velocity=root(Pressure/1000).

AR = RAR / RAC Where: AR = application or shot rate of undiluted prime RAR = specified residual application rate RAC = residual asphalt content of prime There is good agreement in the literature on application rates. The Asphalt Institute recommends application rates of 0.9 to 2.3 L/m2 (0.2 to 0.5...
tensile stress is due to just the tension in the load whereas breaking stress can be due to breaking,shearing or compression!
this a type of beam which contain the depth of slab in its depth.and if you want to decrease the depth of beam then just design it again reducing the depth from 12 inch to 8 inch it will change the required area of steel and grade of concrete.thats it
