The main assumptions of Janssen's theory are the following

  • The material is uniform in texture.
  • The material has a definite angle of repose.
  • The co-efficient of friction between material and side wall is constant.…

Equilibrium Torsion

This case occurs when the torsional moment is required to be in equilibrium and maximum torsional moment (Tu) cannot be reduced by redistribution of moments. In this case the…

Advance Concrete Technology is a very important subject for structural engineering. It helps civil engineers to clearly understand various sophisticated aspects of concrete. Followings are import…

Followings are the basic assumption of Space Truss Analogy-

  • The concept of the space truss analogy is based on the assumption that the torsional capacity of rectangular reinforcement concrete se…

What is Concrete Slab?

Concrete slab, a very common and important structural element, are constructed to provide flat, useful surfaces. It is a horizontal structural component, with top and botto…
