The only thing close to typical is the working hours and even they can vary greatly. Typical working hours during a day are roughly 7:30-8am til 5-6pm...

Civil Engineering: Raft foundation help, Cellular Raft
Cellular Raft: Hi Syed, What you mean is a cellular raft and you will find some info on that in the following website: http://home.bre.polyu.edu.hk/~bshengli/notes7.html and http://en.allexperts.com/q/Civil-Engineering-1357/2008/1/Raft-foundations-1.htm and...

Civil Engineering: RCC Beams, RC Beam Design
RC Beam Design: Hi Ram, In oredr to design such a beam you need to estimate the total imposed loading and then analyse it for moments and shear forces and then designing it, as per gudelines given in the following website: http://bccw.cityu.edu.hk/rc.design/beam_design.asp...

Civil Engineering: Rcc Slab, House dead and live loads
House dead and live loads: Hi Atiq, You can work out the dead load by knowing the density and size of the structural members and internal walls, etc. For example, a 15mm thick RC slab will weigh 0.15X24=3.6 kN/m2, then say 50mm finishes will weigh about 1 kN/m2, servives and ceiling...

Civil Engineering: Regarding plinth beams, Down-stand beams
Down-stand beams: Hi Mohammed, If what you mean by a plinth beam is a down-standing beam, then this is a more economical solution than a flush beam because the efficiency of a beam is increased by a factor equal to square of the effective depth. In other words, a beam 4...

Civil Engineering: Regarding Machine Foundations, Machine Foundations
Machine Foundations: Hi Imtiyaz, This is quite complex, so it may be better to separate out the bases if possible. I am not an expert on this but the rule of thumb is that the foundation weight should be about 3 times the weight of the machinery for a balanced machine and...

Civil Engineering: Reinforce Concrete Thickness-Please Help, RC Slab design formulae/examples
RC Slab design formulae/examples: Hi Aaron, The fonmulae are quite complex, so you will need to refer to guides such as BS 8110, or visit the website I gave you last time and see the examples: http://bccw.cityu.edu.hk/rc.design/example_10.asp This has all the details of how to calculate...

Civil Engineering: Result Analysis, Concrete Cube Tests Acceptance Criteria
Concrete Cube Tests Acceptance Criteria: Hi Imal, Usually this is based on statistical data and the standard deviation and current margin as determined from design mixes. However in simple terms, if 3 cubes are crushed, the strength should be fcu + current margin as an average of all 3 and no...

Civil Engineering: RIBBED FLOOR CONSTRUCTION, Ribbed Slabs or Pan Joist Slabs
Ribbed Slabs or Pan Joist Slabs: Hi Abdulfatai, This is a very efficient form of slab construction which is alos called a Pan Joist system in the USA. The following website has a good presentation with pictures too: http://stommel.tamu.edu/~esandt/Teach/Fall01/CVEN444/Lecture/Lecture9/Lecture9-true.pp...

Civil Engineering: Ribbed slab, Ribbed and Waffle slabs
Ribbed and Waffle slabs: Hi Syed, This works like a series of parallel beams (usually at 750 or 900mm centres, connected with a thin slab around 75mm thick. The design is very similar to that of beams. Two-way ribbed slab is called a waffle slab and that also works like a 2-way...

Civil Engineering: raft foundation, RC Raft Foundation
RC Raft Foundation: Hi Keris, The advantages of a raft foundation are that it distributes the loading from a building relatively evenly over the footprint of the building and also minimises differential settlement of the columns. For your building, you will first need to...

Civil Engineering: How reinforcement to be provided in WALLS, RC Wall rebar
RC Wall rebar: Hi Subrahmanyam, This depends on whether the wall is carrying mainly vertical loads (like columns), in which case you can divide it equally in both faces, or whether it is resisting lateral loading like in a retaining or basement wall, in which case the...

Civil Engineering: Structural design, Flat slabs and seismic loading
Flat slabs and seismic loading: Hi Sreekanth, Flat slabs will impose less moments to columns than beams/slab systems when considering lateral loading or gravity loading from un-equal adjacent spans. For seismic forces, a beam/slab system is better as that has more lateral stiffness...

Civil Engineering: seismic basics, Seismic Loading on frames
Seismic Loading on frames: Hi Roy, If you have an analysis package, then model the building in 3-D, apply a horzontal displacement in each orthogonal direction, and check from the analysis outout what shear force is being resisted at the base of each column as each floor- that will...

Civil Engineering: seismic basics, basic principle, seismic analysis
basic principle, seismic analysis, whichs: The basic principle is sound refraction. We use a system that installs geophones into the ground whichs receives the sounds waves off of the material underground. Rock bounces sounds back faster than soft material. Bryan Lindsey, P.E. www.seengineering.co...

Civil Engineering: Water Main Crossing Sewer Line, construction purposes, inchs
construction purposes, inchs, sewer line: The 10 foot separation is for construction purposes on parallel lines. The 18 in separation on crossing lines is for construction ,maintenance and functionality. A water line will vibrate when carrying a load which cause the sewer line to separate. I hope...

Civil Engineering: basement waterproofing, Raft Design for uplift.
Raft Design for uplift.: Hi Swadheen, This problem has arisen possibly because proper de-watering system was not installed? Also, I would caution you about the stability of the open excavation side at the back of the picture. In any case, the design for up-lift is very simple....

Civil Engineering: bending moments, self weight, bending moment
self weight, bending moment, bending moments: It has been quite some time since I have calculated a bending moment but with that said I will try to give some advice. The sum of the moments from what I can remember is simply just distance times load. Beyond that I would have to do some research which unfortunately...

Civil Engineering: box culverts, box culverts, coffer dam
box culverts, coffer dam, stream bed: This is not really my area of expertise but I can give you an answer that is generally correct. Normally they will build a coffer dam to stop the flow through the stream bed. Then either build a temporary ditch for the stream to flow around or pump it...

Civil Engineering: building construction, Pad and Raft Foundations
Pad and Raft Foundations: Hi Folashade, The main difference is in proportions and how many applied loading points there are. A pad is usually quite thick in relation to the length and breadth (t= 1/3 to 1/4 of plan dimensions), so it is very stiff in out-of plane bending. Normally...

Civil Engineering: concrete technology, value percentage, design strength
value percentage, design strength, concrete technology: Hi Ibanabayomi, These percentages can vary a lot depending on the mix design and type of cement used, but on average the 7 day fcu will be between 70-80 % of 28 day, the 21 day fcu will be up to 100% of fcu at 28 days and the 28 days fcu normally is about...

Civil Engineering: Deflection of flexural members, Deflection Criteria
Deflection Criteria: Hi Ahmed, Most codes stipulate a total deflection limitation of span/250 for service loads only (DL+LL)and span/350 to 500 for service live loads for areas that have non-brittle and brittle finishes respectively which could get damaged- such as perimeter...

Civil Engineering: how to design a RCC footing, RC Footing or Foundation Design
RC Footing or Foundation Design: Hi Ali, Basically you need to work out the total vertical (gravity) loading and the total lateral (wind or earthquake) loading on the foundation and then knowing the safe bearing capacity (from ground investigations), you can design the footing, as per...

Civil Engineering: diaphragm in civil engineering, seismic conditions, seismic forces
seismic conditions, seismic forces, diaphrams: Hello Emad, Diaphragms have an important role when it comes to resisting forces due to seismic forces. It is said that the various diaphragms have performed satisfactorily when induced by natural hazards. Below is a link which gives you an in-depth analysis...
