  • Test Your Civil Engineering Skills
    Just like any other science, Civil Engineering, too, is evolving. Concrete is no longer coarse and made of fine aggregates only. Similarly engineering materials are not restricted to cement and steel. Challenge yourself with this short quiz and find out how much you know about Civil Engineering.
  • Engineering for Municipal Services
    How many times have you said, "I love that city. It is so clean and well organized." How many times have you been impressed by how cities like London and Venice are able to handle their municipal services so effectively? You can thank the municipal engineers who play the major role behind this.
  • Waste Incineration as an Alternative to More Landfills
    There are several types of waste incineration plants. The most common type is municipal solid waste (MSW) with the heat providing energy from waste. This is becoming more necessary in many countries throughout the world as we all run out of land-fill sites for our household rubbish.
  • Highway Construction & Engineering
    Highway construction and engineering includes planning, designing, and building of highways. History stands witness that good roads lead to prosperity for distant societies. If a road is well planned and then executed according to the plan, a highway can open the gates of growth and development.
  • A Non-stop Method for Building Concrete Structures
    The slipform technique of construction allows for the continuous pouring of concrete into walls of a structure and only stops when the full required height of the structure has been reached.
  • CAD Packages for Architectural Landscape Design
    The objective of this architect CAD software review is to provide insight about a few good architectural CAD packages out of the hugely crowded civil CAD market.
  • What is a Lacquer Based Paint?
    Lacquer is a colored coating that is frequently used to produce a shiny wood appearance. Lacquer types are nitrocellulose, and less often cellulose, which is expensive and produces an appearance that is not very attractive. Lacquer will be durable if suitable measures are implemented.
  • Safety Standards for Construction Equipment
    Though construction sites are a great place to work, construction workers face several hazards during their day-to-day work like equipment danger and accidents. In this post, you will learn more about the hazards and dangers of construction equipment when safety standards are not followed.
  • The Preventable Nature of Crane Accidents
    Crane accidents can be caused by mechanical failures or human failures in the operations of the cranes. Even the mechanical failures can be a result of improper supervision or maintenance and all point to lack of training and required attention to crane operations by field managers.
  • Construction Ambassador Definition for Engineers
    Construction Ambassadors, as the name suggests, are individuals with a passion for the field of construction. They can have many varied responsibilities, which can make it difficult to define exactly what they really do and to describe their job role precisely.
