Building Construction & Design

Civil Engineering may not get as much attention as other  disciplines but it’s an important area of study if you want to work on the design, construction and maintenance of civil projects like roadways, bridges and buildings.

  • How Can We Upgrade Our HVAC Systems?
    Have you ever noticed how different parts of the same building can have greatly different comfort levels when it comes to temperature? Learn about a heating and cooling system known as multi-zoning, which can solve this issue.

  • An Introduction to the Field of Civil Engineering
    Civil engineering is the oldest and one of the most versatile branches of engineering. Every structure that we see around today is a creation of civil engineering.

  • Basic Methods of Waste Management
    After the industrial revolution, waste management became an important and necessary function.

  • Causes and of Rust and Protection Through Galvanization
    Rust is a process that occurs when oxygen and moisture contact exposed metal. With the settlement of moisture in dents, and with an increase in the contact period, rust is formed. Rusting is intensified with high temperatures and increased humidity, and leads to a deterioration in the metal.

  • Green Rooftops for Energy Efficiency
    The LEED system for energy efficient building construction, maintenance, and operation has led to renewed interest in roof gardens and greenery. Several important considerations should be examined for retrofit and new construction of such systems.

  • Architecture in Civil Engineering
    Civil engineers and architects complement each other’s’ work. An architect takes care of the design and shape of a building whereas a civil engineer takes care of the technical nitty-gritty like the strength of the building. Architecture is art; civil engineering is more about physics

  • Test Our 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.
