Comparison of Stresses for Circular and Rectangular Pre-stressing Plates in Post-Tensioned Anchorage Zone

Abstract This paper presents the case study on 3-dimensional analysis of end block of rectangular post tensioned concrete beam. The end block of post tensioned concrete beam is modelled in finite element based software ANSYS. Concentric prestressing force is applied on two different shapes of plates. A case study is performed in which the loaded […]

Abstract This paper reviews the efforts of United Nations towards the Planning and Implementation of Sustainable Development at all levels of the administration of all nations across the world. The basic concepts of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and Integrated River Basin Management (IRBM) and its effectiveness to realize sustainable development of a river basin […]

Effect of Suction on Mechanical Behaviour of Unsaturated Soil: A Review

Abstract This study reviews the mechanical behaviour of unsaturated soil under various Geotechnical problems like bearing capacity failures and the slope stability failures. To obtain a rational solution for any Geotechnical problems, field tests & numerical modelling were performed. Moreover various empirical equations and new innovating methods used to obtained desire parameters required for unambiguous […]
