Earthwork excavation by using Machines

Earth Work Excavation by Mechanical means Earth work by mechanical means involves careful planning keeping in view site conditions i.e. type of soil, nature of excavation, distances through which excavated soil is to be transported and working space available for employing these machines. The earth moving equipment should be accordingly selected. The earth moving equipment consists of excavating and transporting equipment. Excavating equipment’s may be further classified as excavators and tractor based equipment’s. Excavators Excavators generally used at site are

Anti-Termite Treatment in building construction works and its technical details

ANTI-TERMITE TREATMENT IN CIVIL ENGINEERING Sub-terranean termites are responsible for most of the termite damage in buildings. Typically, they form nests or colonies underground. In the soil near ground level in a stump or other suitable piece of timber in a conical or dome shaped mound. The termites find access to the super-structure of the building either through the timber buried in the ground or by means of mud shelter tubes constructed over unprotected foundations. Termite control in existing as

Artificial stones, Selection of stones, Aggregate grading and its types

Selection of stones In contemplating the use of stone for various engineering works, the selection of the nature and quality of stone is governed by the purpose in view, cost of stone, its ornamental value and durability Suitability various types of stones for different purposes and situation is briefly discussed below For face work, in general marble, granite and close-grained sand stone are used in the form of thin slabs (veneers) where the structure subjected to adverse weather effects. For

Characteristics of Granite, Balast, Sand Stone, Lime Stone, Marble and Slate

Characteristics of stones In order to ensure suitable selection of stone of particular work, one must be conversant with its composition, characteristics, uses and place of availability. Granite Igneous rock Composed of quart, feldspar and mica and minerals Available in grey, green, brown and pink and red Hard and durable High resistance to weathering The texture varies with its quality Specify gravity 2.7 and compressive strength 700 to 1300 kg/cm2 Used for ornamental, road metal, railway ballast, aggregate for concrete;

Classification of rocks, Uses and Good qualities of building stones

Classification of Rocks: Building stones are obtained from rocks occurring in nature and classified in three ways. Geological classification Physical classification Chemical classification Geological Classification: According to this classification, the rocks are of the following types. Igneous rocks: Rocks that are formed by cooling of Magma (molten or pasty rocky material) are known as igneous rocks.  Eg: Granite, Basalt and Dolerite etc. Sedimentary rocks: these rocks are formed by the deposition of production of weathering on the pre-existing rocks. Examples:
