Seminar on PRE STRESS CONCRETE(C R Alimchandani Memorial Programme at Nimhan’s convention hall on 24/08/2016)

The students of 7th semester attended seminar on Pre stressed concrete at Nimhan’s convention hall which helped them to differentiate post and pre-tensioning concrete elements. The live examples of tendons, anchorages where kept for display and were also explained in the presentation.

Pre stressing is the introduction of a compressive force to the concrete to counteract the stresses that will result from an applied load. There are two methods of introducing pre stressing to a concrete, namely pre tensioning and post tensioning.

Pre tensioning happens before the casting of the concrete. This is done by placing of high tensile steel tendons in a desired profile in which the concrete is to be cast. When the concrete had reached the required strength, the tendons are released to introduce a compressive force to the concrete.

Post tensioning is the process of introducing compressive force to the concrete after the concrete is casted. This is done by placing high tensile steel PC Strand tendons in a desired profile. The tendons are then stressed and locked with anchors. This application introduces compressive force to the concrete and the concrete can achieve its required pre stressed strength.

Post tensioning is getting popular with civil constructions, example are roads, bridges, railways, tunnels, dams, containment tanks, reservoirs, underground constructions, foundations, buildings, industrial facilities, air & sea ports, special structures or any form of pre stressed concrete structures etc.

Seminar on green buildings was held on March, 2016 by Department of civil engineering. The resource persons was Mr. S. Srinivas

The building sector in India is growing at a rapid pace and contributing immensely to the growth of the economy. The green concepts ad techniques in the building sector can help address national issues like water efficiency, energy, and energy efficiency, reduction in fossil fuel use for commuting, handling of consumers waste and conserving natural resources.

Green buildings have tremendous benefits, both tangible and intangible. Most tangible benefits are the reduction in water and energy consumption right from day one of occupancy. Energy savings could range from 20-30% and water savings around 30-50%. The intangible benefit is air quality, excellent day lighting, health and well-being of occupants, safety benefits and conservation of scare national resources.

IGBC Green New Buildings designed for new buildings, both air – conditions and non-air – conditioned buildings. Based on scope of work, projects can choose any of above options.

  1. Owner –occupied buildings are those wherein 51% or more of buildings built-up area is occupied by owner.
  2. Tenant-occupied buildings are those wherein 51% or more of building’s built-up area is occupied by tenants.
