The construction of buildings and structures relies on having a thorough understanding of building materials. ... With its distinguished editor and eminent editorial committee, Building materials in civil engineering is a standard introductory reference book on the complete range of building materials.
2. CPMT & PERT
Construction industry is one of the largest industries in the world, and one that has the highest stakes. Construction project management is the art of undertaking a construction project to meet its cost, time and quality deadlines in a sustainable way.
3. Design of Steel Structure
The course deals with design of steel structures using “Limit State Design Method”. The design methodology is based on the latest Indian Standard Code of Practice for general construction (IS 800:2007). The subject covers all the necessary components such as material specifications, connections and elementary design of structural members for designing industrial steel structures. The course provides material specifications and design considerations.
The civil engineer integrates scientific principles with engineering experience to plan, design, and construct networks of highways and railroads, airports, bridges and dams, environmental pollution control systems, industrial structures, water purification and distribution systems, and urban transportation systems ...
5. Fluid Mechanics
Hydraulic engineering is the application of the principles of fluid mechanics to problems dealing with the collection, storage, control, transport, regulation, measurement, and use of water.
6. Highway Engineering
Highway engineering. Highway engineering is an engineering discipline branching from civil engineering that involves the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of roads, bridges, and tunnels to ensure safe and effective transportation of people and goods.
Water resources engineering is the quantitative study of the hydrologic cycle -- the distribution and circulation of water linking the earth's atmosphere, land and oceans. ... Civil engineers play a vital role in the optimal planning, design and operation of water resource systems.
Irrigation is defined as the process of artificial supply of water to soil for raising crops. ... It is the engineering of controlling and harnessing the various natural sources of water, by constructing dams and reservoirs, canals and headworks, and finally distributing the water to the agricultural fields.
Reinforced concrete (RC) is a composite material in which concrete's relatively low tensile strength and ductility are counteracted by the inclusion of reinforcement having higher tensile strength or ductility. ... Typically, RCC is constructed without joints.
10. Soil Mechanics
Soil mechanics is a branch of soil physics and applied mechanics that describes the behavior of soils. ... Along with rock mechanics, soil mechanics provides the theoretical basis for analysis in geotechnical engineering, a subdiscipline of civil engineering, and engineering geology, a subdiscipline of geology.
11. Strength of Material
Definition. In mechanics of materials, the strength of a material is its ability to withstand an applied load without failure or plastic deformation. ... Deformation of the material is called strain when those deformations too are placed on a unit basis.
12. Structural Analysis
Structural analysis is the determination of the effects of loads on physical structures and their components. Structures subject to this type of analysis include all that must withstand loads, such as buildings, bridges, vehicles, furniture, attire, soil strata, prostheses and biological tissue.
The planning and design of all Civil Engineering projects such as construction of highways, bridges, tunnels, dams etc are based upon surveying measurements. Moreover, during execution, project of any magnitude is constructed along the lines and points established by surveying.
The engineering of this roundabout in Bristol, England, attempts to make traffic flow free-moving
Transportation engineering or transport engineering is the application of technology and scientific principles to the planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, efficient, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods.
