Abstract

The aim of the Project is to find out the geo-engineering properties of fly ash, which can act as a stabilizer to many soils in geo-engineering field. The project describes the use of local fly ash in construction industry in a way to minimize the industrial waste. Their been serious shortage of natural material, which are used in Highway or Earth dam construction. Due to soil excavation, deforestation occurs which affects the bio-diversity. Industrial waste such as fly-ash, slag etc can be effectively used in soil stabilization. Several geo engineering Labrotory experiments were performed on fly ash to determine its properties, which may be used in road construction, earth dam construction, soil stabilization etc. If these materials can be used in highway or dam construction, it will be a great effort in minimizing the industrial pollution. Fly ash was collected from captive power plant from the dump pad of Rourkela steel plant. These are stored in air tight container after being oven-dried. Experiments such as determination of compaction properties, CBR analysis, Un-confined compressive strength test, permeability etc are done in order to determine the geo-engineering properties of fly ash, which can taken account in the construction field. A brief comparison is made between fly ash and other soil properties which are used as sub-grade, base in Highway construction.

Introduction
Electricity is the key for development of any country. Coal is a major source of fuel for production of electricity in many countries in the world. In the process of electricity generation large quantity of fly ash gets produced and becomes available as a byproduct of coal-based power stations. It is a fine powder resulting from the combustion of powdered coal - transported by the flue gases of the boiler and collected in the Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP).

... technician. How will this trend play out in the years ahead? Will civil engineers move further into a systems role? Civil engineering risks becoming increasingly commoditized. Clients and owners may increasingly use low bid procurement—and thus the lowest innovation denominator— rather than qualifications-based selection and its opportunities to provide the best life-cycle options. And how will civil engineers in advanced nations react as the need to have project teams all in one place continues to shrink, and lower-cost engineers from rapidly expanding 4 technological workforces around the world vie for a piece of the global economic pie? Will economic forces make that pie expand, with more work for all engineers, or will barriers be proposed to slow the negative local employment impacts? How will civil engineers gain the needed knowledge of international business practices and cultural and linguistic issues and will they further address corruption in the global engineering and construction industry? In the future, some, now dominant countries may have a diminishing global role in engineering research and education and in application of new technology. Civil engineers can contribute to world stability. Civil engineers, because of their work with infrastructure and the environment, can contribute to world stability. Consider one example: Virtually every nation on earth is either facing, or within 20 years will face, some type of water supply challenge. That demand for this...

Fly Ash for Cement Concrete

... and unburnt carbon content. In last four decades, cement concrete technologies have shown evolutional changes and apart from the strength consideration, durability and economy have become important factors for deciding the concrete quality. The concept of higher cement content means greater strength and thus durability has not proved in true sense for the structures exposed to different climatic conditions. To make cement concrete strong and durable at lower cost, use of supplementary cementitious material i.e. fly ash started in practice and is now a proven technology World over. Thus, today cement concrete has 4 essential ingredients-cement, aggregates (coarse & fine), water and fly ash in place of traditionally 3 ingredients cement, aggregates and water. In India, though various Indian Standards published by Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS) specifies use of fly ash as part replacement of cement in concrete, in actual practice it is in nascent stage. In the area of road construction, Indian Road Congress has also released standards for use of fly ash in Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) roads. However there is a need to publish relevant standards for use of fly ash in RCC dams. To create awareness among engineers, contractors, builders, architects and public at large, our Ash Utilization Division at Corporate Centre had published a variety of booklets, brochures/pamphlets etc. The details given in these publications regarding various areas of ash utilization have been...

...What is Civil Engineering? This definition of Civil Engineering is found at Answer.com. Civil Engineering is a branch of engineering that encompasses the conception, design, construction, and management of residential and commercial buildings and structures, water supply facilities, and transportation systems for goods and people, as well as control of the environment for the maintenance and improvement of the quality of life. Civil engineering includes planning and design professionals in both the public and private sectors, contractors, builders, educators, and researchers. The civil engineer holds the safety, health, and welfare of the public paramount. Civil engineering projects and systems should conform to governmental regulations and statutes; should be built economically to function properly with a minimum of maintenance and repair while withstanding anticipated usage and weather; and should conserve energy and allow hazard-free construction while providing healthful, safe, and environmentally sound utilization by society. Civil engineers play a major role in developing workable solutions to construct, renovate, repair, maintain, and upgrade infrastructure. The infrastructure includes roads, mass transit, railroads, bridges, airports, storage buildings, terminals, communication and control towers, water supply and treatment systems, storm water control systems, wastewater collection, treatment and disposal systems, as well as living and working areas, recreational...

Fly Ash Brick Project: Feasibility Study Using Cvp Analysis

..., required intimate mixing of fly ash, sand, lime and gypsum. Gypsum and lime were first ground to fine particles and then fly ash and sand added to make a fine blend. The ratio of the input material was as follows: Fly ash: 60 to 80 per cent Sand: 10 per cent Gypsum: 10 per cent Lime: 10 to 20 per cent Water was added to the mix to form a paste after which the mixture was transferred to moulds fitted in a hydraulic/mechanical press. The bricks were later dried in the open for one or two days and then cured using water. A process outline for manufacturing fly ash bricks is given in Exhibit 1. NTPC established pilot ash brick manufacturing plants at its 13 thermal power plants. Approximately 150 million bricks had already been manufactured in these plants and used for in-house consumption. To guarantee the quality of manufactured bricks, it was suggested that the new brick manufacturing plants follow the guidelines of the quality standard of IS 12894:1990. 4 SHARMA’S BRICK PROJECT Sharma was trying to convince Gupta to agree to his business idea. To strengthen his argument, Sharma referred to a portion of the address of Dr. Abdul Kalam, a former Indian president, who had met concerns over the disposal of fly ash by saying: . . . the use of coal for power generation results in increased quantum of fly ash production, which has reached over 100 million tonnes per year. All-out efforts are needed to utilize this fly ash not only for environmental considerations, but also to......

... excavated tunnels are three major integral parts of the tunnelling method. Most of these works are similar to other road construction except that the excavation levels involved are deeper. Bulk excavation is often undertaken under a road deck to minimise traffic disruption as well as environmental impacts in terms of dust and noise emissions and visual impact. ‘ Drill and Blast Tunnelling Method This tunnelling method involves the use of explosives. Drilling rigs are used to drill blast holes on the proposed tunnel surface to a designated depth for blasting. Explosives and timed detonators are then placed in the blast holes. Once blasting is carried out, waste rocks and soils are transported out of the tunnel before further blasting. Most tunnelling construction in rock involves ground that is somewhere between two extreme conditions of hard rock and soft ground. Hence adequate structural support measures are required when adopting this method for tunnelling. Drill and Blast Tunnelling Method Drill and Blast Tunnelling Method Tunnel Boring Machines Method (TBM) Tunnel Boring Machine Method Tunnel Boring Machine Method Tunnel Boring Machine method is often used for excavating long tunnels. An effective TBM method requires the selection of appropriate equipment for different rock mass and geological conditions. The TBM may be suitable for excavating tunnels which contain competent rocks that can provide adequate geological stability for boring a long section...

... in London, and in 1820 the eminent engineer Thomas Telford became its first president. The institution received a Royal Charter in 1828, formally recognising civil engineering as a profession. Its charter defined civil engineering as: the art of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of man, as the means of production and of traffic in states, both for external and internal trade, as applied in the construction of roads, bridges, aqueducts, canals, river navigation and docks for internal intercourse and exchange, and in the construction of ports, harbours, moles, breakwaters and lighthouses, and in the art of navigation by artificial power for the purposes of commerce, and in the construction and application of machinery, and in the drainage of cities and towns.[8] The first private college to teach Civil Engineering in the United States was Norwich University founded in 1819 by Captain Alden Partridge.[9]. The first degree in Civil Engineering in the United States was awarded by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1835.[10] The first such degree to be awarded to a woman was granted by Cornell University to Nora Stanton Blatch in 1905.[11] Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles, and its history is intricately linked to advances in understanding ofphysics and mathematics throughout history.
