Civil Engineering



  • Mechanics is the science that describes and predicts the effect of forces on bodies either at rest or in motion.
  • We know from physics that matter can exist in any of the three states, namely solids, liquids and gases. As the behavior compressive, bending and torsional, these forces cause deformation of bodies under forces vary for fluids and solids, their studies are also dealt separately and they are termed respectively as mechanics of fluids (or) fluid mechanics and mechanics of solids.
  • The external forces acting on solid bodies may be of tension, compressive, bending and torsional. These forces cause deformations and internal stresses within the members. For a successful design of mechanical members, the engineer must know the internal stress distribution under the external force application so that he can decide the maximum load it can take before failure. Hence, an engineer should have complete knowledge over the strength of material of each member that is going to be part of any structure.

Transportation engineering is the application of technology and scientific principles to the planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, efficient, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods (transport). It is a sub-discipline of civil engineering and of industrial engineering. Transportation engineering is a major component of the civil engineering and mechanical engineering disciplines, according to specialization of academic courses and main competences of the involved territory. The importance of transportation engineering within the civil and industrial engineering profession can be judged by the number of divisions in ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) that are directly related to transportation.



For latest Civil Engineering project like building a house, constructing a dam, laying out a road, setting upon an industry etc., prestressed concrete structures are mostly used. Prestressed concrete is a method for overcoming concrete's natural weakness in tension. It can be used to produce beams, floors or bridges with a longer span than is practical with ordinary reinforced concrete. Prestressing tendons (generally of high tensile steel cable or rods) are used to provide a clamping load which produces a compressive stress that balances the tensile stress that the concrete compression member would otherwise experience due to a bending load. Traditional reinforced concrete is based on the use of steel reinforcement bars, rebars, inside poured concrete. Prestressing can be accomplished in three ways: pre-tensioned concrete, and bonded or unbounded post-tensioned concrete. The objectives of prestress are Control or eliminate tensile stresses in the concrete (cracking) at least up to service load levels, control or eliminate deflection at some specific load level ,allow the use of high strength steel and concrete. Thus, prestressed concrete structured has became a basic requirement for all Civil Engineering projects.

Prestressed concrete has the following merits:

  • Since the technique of prestressing eliminates cracking of concrete under all stage of loading, the entire section of the structures takes part in resisting the external load. In contrast to this, in the reinforced concrete, only portion of the concrete above neutral axis is effective.
  • Since concrete does not crack, the possibility of steel to rust and concrete to deteriorate is minimized.
  • Absence of cracks results in higher capacity of the structure to bear reversal of stresses, impact, vibration and shock.
  • In prestressed concrete beams, dead loads are practically neutralized. The reactions required are therefore much smaller than required in reinforced concrete. The reduced dead load weight of the structure results in saving in the cost of foundations. The neutralization of dead load is of importance in large bridges.
  • The use of curved tendons and the pre-compression of concrete helps to resist shear.
  • The quantity of steel required for prestressing about 1/3 of that required for reinforced concrete, though the steel for the former should have high tensile strength.
  • In prestressed concrete, precast blocks and elements can be assumed and used as one unit. This saves in the cost of shuttering and centering for large structures.
  • With the advent of prestressed concrete, it has been possible now to construct large size liquid retaining structures not economical to build otherwise. Such structures have low cost and are preferably safe against cracking and consequent leakage.
  • Prestressed concrete can be used with advantage in all those structures where tension develops, such as tie and suspender of a bow string girder, railway sleepers, electric poles, upstream face of gravity dam etc.
  • Prestressed concrete beams have usually low deflection

For any Civil Engineering project like building a house, constructing a dam, laying out a road, setting up of an industry etc., the first requirement is to have a Plan/Map of the area i.e., Construction Technology is an important application of science, which plays a major role in the social and economic development of modern society. In order to perform this role effectively, construction engineers require a broad understanding of scientific principles, knowledge of materials, applied knowledge of civil engineering and the capacity to analyze and synthesize in order to arrive at solutions. This requires research, team working, and leadership and business skills, and it has to be situated in a social, economic and environmental context that reflects the reality within which the construction engineer finds him/herself. The Construction Management mission is to prepare students to enter the construction industry at the management level, possessing a broad-scope understanding of the techniques of construction project and company management, and demonstrating the entry level skill. Construction technology and project management is defined as the overall planning, coordination, and control of a project from beginning to completion. CM is aimed at meeting a client's requirement in order to produce a functionally and financially viable project.

  • Based upon the consideration a construction manager should have the ability to handle public safety, time management, cost management, quality management, decision making, mathematics, working drawings, and.
  • The functions of Construction management is specifying project objectives and plans including delineation of scope, budgeting, scheduling, setting performance requirements, and selecting project participants and Maximizing the resource efficiency through procurement of labor, materials and equipment., implementing various operations through proper coordination and control of planning, design, estimating, contracting and construction in the entire process and Developing effective communications and mechanisms for resolving conflicts.
  • The main objective of this study is to help students in gaining basic design fundamentals and primary construction systems, methods, materials, graphics basic surveying skills, develop construction cost accounting, management and the fundamentals of construction law, construction safety, construction project management and control systems and he/she will understand professional ethical responsibility, computer skills and applications common to the construction industry.
