About the Author

Cpo logoHey, I’m BenzuJK. Welcome to CivilProjectsOnline.com. I am an Architect, blogger and a writer.

Architecture is interesting and fun. My college has given me some good experiences, some not so good. Life is a journey… it does not stop. There are always some goal posts to be achieved. Once we achieve the goals, we have to make new goals, to renew life itself.

The theme of posts ranges from Civil Engineering, Case Studies, Building Maintenance, Lighting arrangements, to mega-projects that bring glory to the field of Engineering, to discussing the latest innovations in construction techniques and building materials.

    It is very appreciable & commendable to write a book in this young age. In our student life
    We did not try like this.
    I hope you shall try to write for other structural items like beams, column & its foundations.

    I require some knowledge on raft’s foundation. If you have some written material please mail me.

    You are not only a student, but a scholar as well. I can only imagine the how much success and achievement you will gain in the future.

    I sincerely thank you for all your help, your information has not only find solutions to my project but has inspired to think about engineering in a complete different and invigorating way.

    Please keep up the great work, and try to imagine how may other people you have helped and inspired, only a tiny few have responded in comment, there are so many others.

    My deepest gratitude.

    What is a “case study”? I’m not in architecture. Is that a phrase used in architecture. Otherwise, what would a case study of a studio apt be? Thx.

    Hello Benzu,

    Today I got into your site while googling for some information regarding repair of heavy equipment foundations encountering dynamic loading on a regular basis. I am not a civil engr, but a ChE with decades of interdisciplinary exp in the largest steel plant in India.
    I am writing this in appreciation of your efforts, that too at this tender age, for your passion for documenting and sharing valuable technical information- a rare quality in most technical people !
    Best Wishes for the Good Work ! Keep going.

    Hi benzu

    Really good work, easy to understand simple words and figures. I am design engineer and got some useful topics which helped me a lot.

    One suggestion why dont you invite people who write software for design of civil engineering elements. They can share small programs which makes a lot of help in civil engineering community

    keep it Up and Good Luck

    what are the undergraduate engineering fields which can lead to structural engineering ?
    I’m really confused, will u help me mis Benzu…………….

    • #19 by BenzuJK on February 17, 2011 - 8:25 am

      Hello,
      If you are so interested into going for Structural Engineering then go for Civil Engineering…
      Civil Engineering is the ultimate field which will help you pursue Structural Engineering in future…

  14. #20 by Jagat Verma on February 17, 2011 - 10:40 am

    beside civil engineering course , is there is any other engineering fields that lead to structural engineering……………

    • #21 by BenzuJK on February 18, 2011 - 8:16 pm

      Hello Jagat,
      Civil Engineering is the only ultimate course which will help you get into Structural Engineering as your Postgraduate course…

    Great effort, I also like to joint, as a civil Engineer (pass out in 2011) in Sri Lanka. Is it possible?

  16. #24 by Jagat Verma on February 19, 2011 - 11:41 pm

    i mean if i do bachelor in architectural or construction engineering then at my master degree can i take structural engineering or can’t.

    • #25 by BenzuJK on February 20, 2011 - 10:29 am

      There is an Architecture degree called “B.arch” which has got nothing to do with structural engineering…but you can take up Construction Management. U cannot take up Structural Engineering as your PG degree unless you go for B.E Civil…. I hope you got it this time.

    Hi, I have recently laid foundation for house 45′ x 30′. It has 12 columns each made out of 12″ steel rods (4 nos.). I want to construct the house in stages. When I asked my contractor to build the coloumns to full height and the linter (roof) he advised that the construction should be with brick walls and coloumns. He says that making coloums and linter on top will not bear the weight. Can you guide me how to go about it, whether the 12 coloumns will be able to bear weight of linter. The coloumns were dug out at three feet deep.

  34. #46 by DTV on November 5, 2011 - 2:14 am

    Hi Benzu,

    I find your site very useful and interesting, especially to Civil Engineers. You’re doing great, it’s really nice making your site’s name focused into civil engineering projects, despite of being into Architecture.

    I salute you in your good understanding and ongoing endeavor. Unlike in my country, mostly but not all anyway, somewhat relating to economics, most of the 2 professions Arch/CE seems trying to isolate themselves – due to some legal issues about each one’s profession, Architects have it on this link http://www.architectureboard.ph/uploads/1286606272-k10oct8_ApecICApresentn.ppt , while civil engineers including me, also have legal issues as on this link http://www.docstoc.com/docs/16435814/The-Practice-of-Civil-Engineering-and-RA-9266-_Architecture-Act, our government has lot to do in resolving this. Both parties has its own rights and privileges anyway.

    I do hope both professions do the same like as you do in here, as one in both fields of endeavor.

    More power…

  45. #60 by KAMESWARA Rao Y on March 4, 2012 - 11:09 pm

    Hello Ms Benzujk, Thanks for ur blog.

    Do need an expert opinion.
    Am basically a Mechanical guy, but ‘ve got to lookafter civil jobs also. Was stuck up in designing a structure (Main Entrance for our Steel Plant).

    The details in brief are
    RCC Slab 17200 x 17000 (17000 is span)
    Out of this, 10000 length is supported with two additional columns in between but the remaining 7000 length can be given column supports at either ends only.

    The entrance would look like a trapezium, the smaller side measuring 13000 and longer side 17200.
    The support plan for the area under trapezium:
    (i) Columns 600 x 600 at the ends
    (ii) Tie Beam 300 x 600
    (iii) Digonal Supports on either ends (Beam to Column) 1500×1500
    (iv) We have another two roof beams extending to the front tie beam of size 300 x 600. Here also we plan for diagonal supports of 1500 x 1500.
    (v) Additionally, we have side walls, extending to full height, also to support the slab.

    Thanks & Reg

    Height of the structure : 7000.

    Hi there!

    I’m a photo researcher for a publishing company in South Africa and there are a couple of photos in your site that would be perfect for the text book I’m busy working on. Could I perhaps email you the details?
    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Being a civil engineer myself and doing field work since passed out, the internet has been the source of all my updates in the construction field. After going through your site, I really appreciate all the hard work you are doing to post these civil engineering fundamentals on internet. People like me, not only get refreshed by this data available topic vise but many must have found the way through their problems in civil engineering both practically and academically also.
    Good work, keep it up and all the best for all your future prospects.

    Hi Benzu,

    Your articles are really usefull and very informative. I am not from the construction or architecture background, but I was looking for website which can give me basic information about constructing the house and also about various terms used in construction. You have done excellent work by explaining each concepts in simple words. Thank you.
    I have one question. I own a old house which is 15 years old brick house, which is in good condition(ground floor only). Now I want to construct duplex over it. Since it old house and there are no columns, how do I proceed and what should be taken care before constructing over it. I have seen couple of old house which use steel beam for extension. Is that the way I should be looking at??

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Benzujk,

    I am a civil engineer from Nepal working in India. I just come to know this site and feel very useful for engineers. I appreciate your effort and courage. You gave a heavy blow to those engineers who don’t believe on experience /knowledge sharing. I think, knowledge sharing makes a person greater. Keep it up !
