A surveyor depends on their equipment for acquiring accurate measurements quickly and easily. The article describes the various types of surveying equipment, both ancient and modern, that are available in the market today.
Any building project that takes place on the ground (that’s many of them) has to be concerned with geotechnical engineering. This branch of Civil Engineering is concerned with earth materials, soil mechanics, geology etc. A geotechnical engineer will examine rock formations and locations to determine safety, environmental concerns and much more. Learn more about this fascinating sub-field here.
The vast field of geotechnical engineering is continuously changing. People attached with this field should thus keep them updated with the latest developments. The article enumerates the best geotechnical publications and resouces that are available online.Read inside to know more on these resources
Soil mechanics is the study of soil and the factors such as bearing capacity, pore water pressure, and effective stress, to name a few, that make soil able to hold up a structure.
Landslides frequently occur in mountainous areas and can cause serious damage. Roads, bridges, and houses may be destroyed and involve huge financial resources. The causes of landslides include heavy rainfall, snow melt, liquefaction, and seismic shaking. Learn more about their causes and effects.
The role of a surveyor is now extremely significant. A growing number of disciplines including mapping, navigation, and Global Positioning Systems concern the modern surveyor. Advanced surveying techniques are more accurate, faster, and reliable than traditional methods, with new technologies emergi
Test, analyze, and report. Sounds easy, but getting usable data from civil engineering materials testing and inspection procedures is not so simple. Analyses of complex geotechnical materials can be required for several civil engineering disciplines needing laboratory scale geotechnical services.
