Safe loads and why they are a necessity not to be compromised

Safe loads and why they are a necessity not to be compromised Fe415 Rightsteel

Corruption in both public and private undertakings is not an unusual or uncommon scenario for a resident in a country like India. The dangers of corruption for unlawful gains have lead to disaster, of which collapse ——– was discussed in —- blog. But ever wonder why not every structure or construct you have known where corruption has eaten up quality is still functioning as its supposed to. It’s not just God’s grace, but a large part of its credit goes to the Engineer who made the plans and necessary load calculations for the construct. So why do they make such calculations. On planning structures, an engineer has to calculate structural load which comprises of both dead loads and live loads acting on it, and also the environment loads and much more. This is so especially in cases of bridges and structures where live loads are more prominent. In this blog we will be discussing more on how loads are calculated for buildings.

Innovations in Constructions

Innovations in Constructions fe415 rightsteel

The construction of buildings is quite innovating and are truly a marvel. When we compare the current timeline with the ancient timeline, we can see that the number of buildings has risen tremendously over the centuries. With time, different types of innovations in constructions were introduced. This resulted in the construction of better, stronger and taller buildings that are safe to live in.

Earthquake vs TMT

Earthquake vs TMT steel reinforcement bars fe415 Rightsteel

Natural disasters are usually one of the troublesome challenges for building structures to overcome particularly, the reinforced steel. Natural disasters are of many types, but the most common disaster occurrence in our country are earthquakes. There are many scenarios of structural collapses due to earthquakes. Although the causes can be attributed to several factors such as the age of building structure, lack of maintenance etc, the most important factor to be attributed is the ductile nature.

Corrosion Prevention on Reinforcement Bars Part – I

Corrosion Prevention on Reinforcement Bars fe415 rightsteel

Corrosion is not something to be taken lightly. It poses a dangerous threat to the overall strength of the building structure. Corrosion starts out pretty much simple and advances through several stages that result in the eventual collapsing of the structure. Even though corrosion is threatening for RCC, there are preventive measures that can be taken to considerably delay the corrosion effects.

Steel – Recycled Or Iron Ore

Steel TMT Ingot Recycled or Iron ore rightsteel

Iron is one of the most used versatile metal in the world. Normally Iron is found in ores. Iron ores are rocks from which iron is extracted for the purpose of processing iron which in turn is further reformed to produce reinforced steel bars. Iron ores are not pure, they contain elements like Sulfur, Phosphorus, Carbon etc. These elements are present in high percentage which results in brittleness and less tensile strength for the metal.
