What does Fe500 steel mean?
The abbreviation Fe stands for Ferrous material ie iron from which the reinforcement steel bars are manufactured. The reinforcement steel bars used in RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) are designated as Fe415 or Fe500 depending on their Yield Strength. (The numbers 415 and 500 tell about this Yield Strength in N/mm2 the bars are designed and manufactured to have.) As per IS : 1786 Yield Stress (also known as 0.2% proof stress) of Fe 500 is 500 N/mm2. So, Fe500 steel means the reinforcement steel rods (or bars) that can safely withstand an Yield Stress of 500 N/mm2.

What sort of jobs are in construction?
Here are various careers in construction, according to the U.S. Department of Labor: * Boilermakers * Brickmasons, blockmasons, and stonemasons * Carpenters * Carpet, floor, and tile installers and finishers * Cement masons, concrete finishers, segmental pavers, and terrazzo workers * Construction and building inspectors * Construction equipment operators * Construction laborers * Drywall installers, ceiling tile installers, and tapers * Electricians * Elevator installers and repairers * Glaziers * Hazardous materials removal workers * Insulation workers * Painters and paperhangers * Pipelayers, plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters * Plasterers and stucco masons * Roofers * Sheet metal workers * Structural and reinforcing iron and metal workers There is a lot more than that on most sites, they usually have a heavy equipment side also: Crane Operator Driver/Hauler Forklift Operator Drag Line Worker Just to name a few. For a better idea of what your local area is looking for, go see your local construction site and speak with one of the foremen. If you interested in a construction career, the best path you could take would be through an apprenticeship program in the trade you are interested. An apprentice is a person who has agreed to learn the trade through on the job training and classroom instruction. You work along journeypersons who have at least five years experience, and may have gone through the same training program. apprentices in the skilled trades learn more,and have greater earning potential than the unskilled jobs in construction. Some of the skilled trades can earn more than $30/hour as journeymen, and the apprentice training can have some future college credit. To get into a trade, find a contractor, union, or tech college and inquire on when apprenticeships are offered, and be persistent. (I am an 18 year vetran of a skilled piping trade. I earn 90k+/yr in my trade)
What is the Difference Between Strict Construction and Loose Construction?
Loose construction-means that the federal government can take reasonable actions that the constitution does not specifically forbid Strict construction- people who favor strict constitution think that that federal government should do only what the constitution specifically says it can do The Loose Construction Theory is when federalists interpret the Constitution into things that are in favor of a stronger national government. There are limitations involved.
Asked in Plumbing, Construction
How do you repair a leak in underground PVC pipe?
you have to dig it up and then you can use a slip coupling or a extension coupling if you are fixing a straight run of pipe because you don't want to dig more then you have to. If its on a 90 degree then its easy with a coupling and another 90 fitting primer and glued. Before you make any repairs you should call locates first and you might want to find out what caused the pipe to fail in the first place such as improper back fill etc

Difference between one way slab and two way slab in construction?
Ans: One way slab is the slab having ratio of longer span to shorter span equal to or more than 1.5 . If the ratio of longer span to shorter span is equal to or less than 1.5, then such slabs are called as two way slab. In one way slab main tensile reinforcement is placed parellel to shorter side which will be the main steel, where as in two way slab both direction required main steel.

Asked in Auto Insurance Claims, Jobs, Construction
If a highway construction worker waves you into an intersection and you are struck by cross traffic is it your fault?
There are a lot of scenarios here and you have given very little information. I am not an attorney but generally speaking either the construction company or the other driver would be at fault. Depending on the severity of the accident it could take a court to determine fault. Was the worker waving you to stop or to go? Was the worker properly trained? Was he using the proper signalling devices? Was the other driver also waived into the intersection or did he fail to heed traffic control? Are there any personal injury claims? If you have collision insurance then it may be best to file a claim with your carrier and let them fight it out over the repairs. Your general liability will protect you from any claims by the other party up to your limits. lwpat

What is the cost of a hydroelectric dam?
What I've been able to find for the Hoover Dam says ~$50 million in the 1930's, today that's roughly $690 million. The entire Boulder Canyon Project cost around $165 million, which included the Hoover Dam. The Hoover Dam has 17 hydro electric generators, capable of generating 2,074MW, which is quite large. The cost of a hydroelectric dam will be dependent on the river it crosses, the storage lake (how big does it need to be, is it man made, or already present, etc.), and how big it will be (how much electricity can it generate), and a host of other factors. I know of a 45MW (enough to power a small town, say 20,000 people) that cost $7.3 million in the 1930's.

Asked in Golden Gate Bridge, Construction
How many people died during the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge?
11 men as a result of falls from the Golden Gate Bridge whilst it was being built. During the bridge's construction, a safety net was set up beneath it, significantly reducing the expected number of deaths for such a project. Whilst 11 men were killed from falls during construction, approximately 19 men were saved by the safety net. 10 of the deaths occurred near completion, when the net itself failed under the stress of a scaffold fall. The men who died were: Kermit Moore; O.A. Anderson; Chris Anderson; William Bass; O. Desper; Fred Dümmatzen; Terence Hallinan; Eldridge Hillen; Charles Lindros; Jack Norman; and Louis Russell.
How do you use corded curtain tie backs?
Most corded curtain tie backs have a tassel. The cord comes pre-tied so that there are 2 loops and the tassel is in the middle. You will also need a hook on your wall to use the tiebacks. You can find inexpensive hooks at any hardware store. Place the hook on the wall at the height/location you want to curtain pulled back to. Then put one of the loops on the hook, wrap the cord arourd the curtain, and attach the other loop. Voila!
