Structural Design Engineer Role in Geo-technical Investigation

Structural Design Engineer play an important role not only in making a structure safe structurally, but also by ensuring that the site where the construction has to be carried out is safe for the given structure. It becomes very much essential for a geotechnical investigation to know the type of structure, surroundings of the proposed […]

Tension Members in structures

Cross Section of tension Members and its behaviour

TENSION MEMBERS-CROSS-SECTION & BEHAVIOUR Tension members are considered to be carrying only axial force. Tension members are subjected to uniform stress because their entire cross-section is used for carrying axial forces. Ties, suspenders of cable stayed and suspension bridges, building suspenders hung from central core, sag rods of roof purlins, members of trusses etc. are […]
