Civil Engineering Materials and Concrete Technology
Concrete is a mixture of paste and aggregates (rocks). The paste, composed essentially of portland cement and water, coats the surface of the fine (small) and coarse (larger) aggregates. Through a series of chemical reactions called hydration, the paste hardens and gains strength to form the rock-like mass known as concrete. Within this process lies the key to a remarkable trait of concrete: it's plastic and malleable when newly mixed, strong and durable when hardened. These qualities explain why one material, concrete, can build skyscrapers, bridges, sidewalks and superhighways, houses and dams.
Functional Design of Buildings
Functional planning is an ideal concept of planning a building based on the principles of architecture and in accordance with the function served by it. Functional design pertains to the development of the plan to facilitate in purely practical way the purpose of the building.
Railways, Bridge and Tunnel
The subject will cater to the needs of those technicians who would like to find employment in the construction of railway tracks, bridges and tunnels. The subject aims at providing broad based knowledge regarding various components and construction of railway track, bridges and tunnels.
Repair And Maintenance of Building
Structures are designed to withstand safely a particular predetermined load during their life period. Generally reinforced concrete (RC) structures can suffer varying degrees of damage due to several reasons including material deterioration, construction technique adopted, poor workmanship, overloading, aggressive environments, fatigue and corrosion of steel reinforcement embedded in concrete
Traffic Flow Modelling
These models can also be employed for automatic control of traffic flow to reduce travel time. The main types of traffic models are macroscopic, mesoscopic and microscopic. Macroscopic models consider the aggregate behavior of traffic flow while microscopic models consider the interaction of individual vehicles
Irrigation and Hydraulic Structures
The Hydraulics, Irrigation and Drainage (HID) program educates students in the field of open channel and groundwater hydraulics in combination with engineering principles and to support useful plant life, with minimum degradation of soil and water resources
Building Planning and Construction
A construction materials course introduces students to materials used in different construction projects from building materials to ground and foundation make-up. Specific materials studied include soil, metals, concrete and wood. This course also covers finishes and materials for the exterior and interior of buildings. Skills are developed to assess the effect materials have on a building projects related to structure, fire safety, building codes as well as market demand.
A civil drawing, or site drawing, is a type of technical drawing that shows information about grading, landscaping, or other site details. These drawings are intended to give a clear picture of all things in a construction site to a civil engineer.
Hydraulic machines use liquid fluid power to perform work. Heavy construction vehicles are a common example. In this type of machine, hydraulic fluid is pumped to various hydraulic motors and hydraulic cylinders throughout the machine and becomes pressurized according to the resistance present.
Advanced Field Surveying
Field survey is the basic requirement for preparing any engineering maps or drawings. Field survey can be professionally carried out only when various steps involved in the survey work are known with skills of operating modern survey equipment’s.
Revit was intended to allow architects and other building professionals to design and document a building by creating a parametric three-dimensional model that included both the geometry and non-geometric design and construction information, which is also known as building information modeling
Diploma In Civil CAD
CAD (computer-aided design) is the use of computer-based software to aid in design processes. CAD software is frequently used by different types of engineers and designers. CAD software can be used to create two-dimensional (2-D) drawings or three-dimensional (3-D) models
