BS 8110-1: 1997: Structural use of concrete - Part 1: Code of practice for design and construction

This a part of BS 8110 supplies concepts for the structural use of concrete in constructions and constructions, apart from bridges and structural concrete made with excessive alumina cement. The suggestions for robustness were ready at the assumption that each one load-bearing parts, e. g. slabs, columns and partitions are of concrete.

Energy Geostructures

Power geostructures are a massive innovation within the box of starting place engineering and are spreading speedily during the global. they enable the procurement of a renewable and fresh resource of strength that are used for heating and cooling constructions. This know-how the structural position of geostructures with the strength provide, utilizing the primary of shallow geothermal strength.

The Romans made the best use of their timber, using alder for piles and fir, cypress and cedar for their superstructures. Most of their early arch bridges used Tufa or Travertine limestone, the former requiring stucco protection for durability and the latter having the greater compressive strength. They also advanced the manufacture of bricks from clay, earth and sand for use in bridgeworks. Their discovery of the process of making pozzolana cement from volcanic clay burnt with lime provided the means to make concrete which could set underwater.

Recently it featured as the logo for Sydney’s successful bid to host the Year 2000 Olympics. Yet before it was officially opened in 1973, there was considerable disquiet not only about its cost. There were many critics of its validity as a structure, as well as its value as a piece of architecture.
