What are three types of reinforcements used in the process of prestressing
Three types of reinforcements used in the prestressing process are:
- Spalling Reinforcements.
- Equilibrium Reinforcements
- Bursting Reinforcements
Grit is a hard coarse-grained siliceous sandstone
What do you mean by loose ring
Losse ring is an O-ring that is used to seal pipes or joints. The O-ring is not fixed in place, but seals itself through its elasticity as it is stretched over the inside pipe and is compressed when the outer pipe is pushed into place.
What is differential GPS
Different GPS or Differential Global Positioning System abbreviated as DGPS is an enhancement to the Global Positioning System (GPS) that provides improved location accuracy.
What is significance of slump tests
Slump tests signifies the consistency of concreate. These test are performed to empirically measure the work ability of fresh concrete. It is used to measure the consistency of the concrete.
What is the basic difference between Absorption and Adsorption
Absorption is defined as the process in which a fluid is dissolved by a liquid or a solid (absorbent) while Adsorption is the process in which atoms, ions or molecules from a substance adhere to a surface of the adsorbent.
Define fixed beam
Fixed beam is defined as a beam that is restrained from rotating and moving vertically.
What is a deep-plan building
Deep-plan building is defined as a building that has a high ratio of internal floor area to external wall area, resulting in large areas of floor space that are greater than 4 m away from the external walls.
Define the process of keying
Keying is defined as the process of roughing or scratching the surface of a material so that another material will bond to it.
What do you mean by Guniting in Civil Engineering
Guniting also sometimes referred to as shotcreting is defined as the process of conveying desire mixture of dry cement, sand or aggregate under air pressure at high velocity with just sufficient quantity of water for hydration.
