Description

We spend four years at engineering college and learn many things. However, there are things that are not taught at the engineering college but are useful in professional life. This course is intended to cover the void that remains even after four years of engineering.

This course is intended to teach you the conceptual things that check your logical reasoning capacity. It will polish your knowledge regarding some of the basic questions on civil engineering.  This course is intended for civil engineering students who are about to complete their engineering course and the fresh civil engineering graduates who are about to seek a job. This course will keep on expanding as I will keep on adding the lectures. 

Who this course is for:
  • Engineering students about to complete their course.
  • Engineering graduates who are seeking a job.
  • Engineering students appearing for placement interviews.
  • Students appearing for interview for civil engineer.

This video describes how torsion in generated in buildings. It also explains what can be done to avoid the torsion in such buildings.

When a building is hit by an earthquake, it is subjected to horizontal force at the floor levels and the whole building is deflected. If the building is regular shaped the deflection is uniform in all the parts of the building. But if it is irregular then the
deflection is not uniform, some parts deflect much and some parts less. Due to this difference in deflection the building as a whole tends to rotate leaving the corners and ends at more stress. This rotation of a building is called the torsion Torsion irregularity shall be considered when floor diaphragms are rigid in their own
plan in relation to the vertical structural elements that resist the lateral forces. Torsion irregularity is considered to exist when the maximum storey drift, computed with design eccentricity, at one end of the structure transverse to axis is more than 1.2
times of the average of the storey drifts at the two ends of the structures.
