Advanced construction techniques in civil engineering. A seminar abstract.

Modern(Advanced) Construction Techniques, an Introduction
Designs of man-made structures are more complex than ever before, and they are getting no-simpler. Requirements are increasing. Human tendency to compare the previous project with the future one is just one of the reasons. Other reasons for pushing the construction engineering off limits, include increasing population, use of newly developed materials together with software developments, which allow us to design these complex structures. The engineering techniques required for the implementation of designs are highly specific in nature and vary from design to design. Look alone at the simple construction of pavement designs. Here, the performance of the pavement is largely dependent on the sub grade and base layers. Durability and stability of the pavement are decided by the ability of the sub base layers to provide strength and modulus in the moist and underground conditions.

Since the top most layer is usually the one facing the largest stress and hence coated with premium materials, the foundation must be uniform and stiff to support them. Engineering constructions have grown to become highly sophisticated and organized in nature. One of the prominent reasons is the concern for the safety of human life. In the simple case of pavement engineering itself, there are various ways to measure the quality of construction. One of them is Ride Quality parameter which measures the ride quality on the pavement. Non-destructive testing techniques include Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Falling Weight Deflectometers (FWD).

We prepared and published this seminar abstract for final year engineering students seminar research. You should do your own research additional to this information before presenting your seminar.
