Beam and Girder look the same but the girder has to beam a heavier load than the beam. The beam is generally constructed to beam distributed load whereas girders are constructed to bear heavy point load from the group of Continue reading Beam vs Girder | Different between Beam and Girder and their Application
What is the creep of concrete ? When a concrete structure is subjected to any load then it deforms instantly. This is known as instantaneous deformation which is temporary in nature. But, what will happen if we provide a load Continue reading What is creep in concrete Structure? How creep occurs?

What Method of joints in truss? The process of analyzing the truss ie. to find the forces in each member of the truss by using joints of the truss and making all forces acting on joints in the equilibrium equation Continue reading Determine the force in each member of the truss by Method of joints
Why Curve is Provided? It is neither practicable nor feasible to have a straight highway or railway in a country. Their alignment requires some changes in direction due to the nature of terrain, culture, feature, or other unavoidable reason. Such Continue reading Types of curves, Elements of Curve for Surveying in Civil Engineering
Hello guys, In this article, you will learn how to calculate the weight of concrete in a cubic foot. We do not measure the dimension of all structures like column, beam, slab, etc in meters. Sometimes we have to measure Continue reading Weight of concrete per cubic foot – Step by step Calculation
What is a shear vane test? Vane Shear test is the process of calculating the undrained strength of fully saturated soil or clays without any disturbance. This method is very quick and easy to perform. So, this method is mostly Continue reading How to perform Vane shear test to test Strength of Soil at the Site?
