Structural and Foundation Design will play an important role for economic design as per BNBC 2020. Material selection and structural system shall take care of safety, sustainability and economy of the project.
Our earthquake and geotechnical expert shall consider several options of foundation system, compare cost of each option and select the most economical foundation system.
Structural design is a highly specialized area of civil engineering. It can be described as a set of methods or tools that are used to determine safe and economical specifications for a structure, and to ensure that a planned structure will be sufficiently strong to carry its intended load.
Structural designing provide all the crucial information about foundations, walls, floors, roof types, steep beams, material quality, and more to ensure that the structure is built to be safe and sound.
Such retrofits for RC buildings include steel braces, post-tensioned cables, infill walls, shear walls, masonry infill’s, and base isolators. Adding structural walls is one of the most common structure-level retrofitting methods to strengthen existing structures.
The designer should have first seen and studied many bridges in the course of a long learning process. He should know what type of beam may be suitable in the available conditions, either a beam bridge an arch bridge or a suspended one. He should also know the influence of foundation conditions on the choice of spans and structural systems etc. hence, the designer.
The distribution of forces on infrastructure due to mooring and berthing of vessels.
