  • Structural Engineering Personal Statement

    In the times when Construction giants are burgeoning worldwide, I chose Structural Engineering for a simple reason - It is what I have always desired to do. Being born in a family related to construction business since last 20 years in SURAT, I always had exposure to it and it insinuated interest in me. Accompanying my dad on his site visit during my childhood vacations fascinated me. Hence my future field was pretty much decided since childhood with an aim of joining my dad’s business. Although, I have the chance to join dad’s business or any of the several construction companies around immediately after graduation, I believe I would not be serving justice to my education if I were to select the shorter way out. My aim is to gain such a high…

  • Truss Bridges

    different weights. The most commonly heard truss bridges are; Warren Truss, Pratt truss and Howe truss. Each bridge has a significant difference making each bridge unique. Warren truss contains a series of isosceles triangles or equilateral triangles. To increase the span length of the truss bridge, verticals are added for Warren Truss. Pratt truss is characterised by having its diagonal members (except the end diagonals) slanted down towards the middle of the bridge span. Under such…

  • Tacoma Suspension Bridge

    On November 7th, 1940, the Tacoma Bridge collapsed into the Tacoma Narrows straight in Washington State. The bridge connected the town of Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula, and was one of the first major suspension bridges in the western United States. Unlike other suspension bridges constructed around this time, the Tacoma Bridge failed to withstand wind speeds over 40 miles per hour, due to unequal stress on parts of the bridge. The construction of a suspension bridge must include geometric…

  • Critical Risk Assessment

    Tower. The impact that a lack of funding would have on the project would prevent, or delay, construction of the tower. However, a lack of funding for the tower is not critical to the other projects, except possibly the Trail Team. Factors for a lack of funding are no start-up funds and a withdrawal of donors for the tower. The plan of action for this risk is to explore cheaper design options. 5.2 Risk: Soil Quality There is a medium to low possibility for the location of the observation…

  • How Did The I-35w Mississippi Bridge Collapse

    Many factors caused the collapse which took place August 1, 2007 around 6:00pm with a number of fatalities. At the time of the I-35W Mississippi Bridge collapse construction workers were making additions to the 40 year old structure in hopes of separating the eastbound and westbound lanes. With the bridge being built in the 1960s there were many changes that needed to be made which put stress on the structure and girders over the course of time. With Tons of construction equipment and cars due…

  • How Is The Bridge Affected By Internal And External Forces Of A Bridge?

    Internal forces occur within the bridge, through tension, compression, bending, etc. External forces are applied to the outside of the bridge, and can be static or dynamic. The static load of the bridge is the bridge itself, and the weight of its members and components. This is created by the force of gravity pulling on the members of the bridge. The dynamic load moves and changes, such as traffic, people, wind. It is created by the force of gravity on an object supported by the bridge. These…

  • Analysis Of Lap Splice Reinforce

    The significance is that a correlation needs to be developed to facilitate the introduction of FRP as new materials in the construction of infrastructure. This leads to increase the bond strength of the concrete and steel used in any structural components. Also, the paper will present the comparison of results obtained by different researchers and helps the civil engineer to increase strength and safety of the structure. During the seismic loading, the structural component becomes more critical…
