ETABS features powerful and completely integrated modules for the design of steel and concrete frames, composite beams and concrete shear walls. This manual documents design of concrete shear walls using the 1997 UBC in ETABS. The goal of this manual is to provide you with all of the information required to reproduce the ETABS Shear Wall Design post processor results using hand calculations.

What is Shear Wall?

"wind and seismic loads are the most common loads that shear walls are designed to carry."
Shear wall is a structural system composed of braced panels or shear panels to resist the effects of lateral load acting on a structure, wind and seismic loads are the most common loads that shear walls are designed to carry. Under several building codes, including the international Building Code and uniform building code, all exterior wall lines in wood or steel frame construction must be braced. Depending on the size of the building some interior walls must be braced as well.


A structure of shear walls in the center of a large building – often encasing an elevator shaft or stairwell – form a shear core.

"sulphate attack on mortars, unsound materials, frost action, corrosion of iron and steel, crystallization of salts, linear changes resulting from variation in moisture content"
While doing brickwork and after the brick is completed there are certain defects which has to be faced, these defects they must be avoided and remedial measure must be taken. These defects not only ruins the physical quality and aesthetics of the project but also ruins its structural strength. So to avoid any mishap and loss we must know what are certain defects in brick work and how to avoid them. 

Common defects occurring in Brick work are; sulphate attack on mortars, unsound materials, frost action, corrosion of iron and steel, crystallization of salts, linear changes resulting from variation in moisture content. 


Sulphate attack on mortars

Sulphate attack leads to expansion of mortar, thereby causing cracking of brickwork, spalling of brick edges, deterioration of mortar, wide horizontal and vertical cracks in the plaster and falling of the plastered surface. 

The cause of this attack is the chemical action between the sulphate salts in bricks and constituents of Portland cement. 
Sulphate Attack on Bricks
This action is rapid in the presence of water and hence wherever moisture penetrates, excessive dampness occurs. This type of defect may be prevented by preventing moisture penetration. It will avoid the defect to a large extent. Bricks of low sulphate content and the sulphate resisting cement should be used. 

Unsound Materials

Unsound materials cause the formation of small pits at the mortar joints. General expansion and cracking of brick work is visible. Unsoundness in lime is caused by the presence of un-slaked particles of lime. Similarly un-slaked lime particles may be present in the bricks also. 
Unsound Material

Frost action

Defects due to frost action would cause cracking in brickwork. Prevention of water accumulation would prevent this defect.

Corrosion of Metals

Brickwork may get opened or cracked or stained due to corrosion of metals lying adjacent to it. Unprotected iron and steel are liable to get corroded when acted upon by moisture and they increase in bulk, thereby causing cracks in masonry. 
Corrosion of Bricks due to Metals
Protecting the metal surface with cement mortar up to a layer of 1 to 2 cm thick is essential to prevent corrosion.  Partially embedded steel or iron members should be surrounded with bituminous compound for portions not embedded in mortar. 
Metal Corrosion 

Crystallization of Salt and Efflorescence 

This is a prominent defect in brick masonry. In moist climate, in damp places, like basements or under leaky gutter, masonry often gets disfigured by the formation of a white deposit called efflorescence. Deposit originates from the mortar and frequently spreads over a part or entire face of the wall. 
Efflorescence 
Absorbed water dissolves the salts of sodium, potassium and evaporating, forms a crystalline deposit on the surface. In addition to unsightly appearance, the crystallization of salts in the pores of the bricks or mortar may cause disruptive expansion resulting in disintegration due to cracking. 
To avoid Efflorescence do not use porous bricks in contact with limestone. Protect brickwork against contamination of salt-bearing materials during building operations. Bricks should be thoroughly soaked during construction. Correct design of DPC should be used. 

Shrinkage Effects

Brick work may crack due to the shrinkage movements arising from changes in moisture content. This defect is more common with concrete and lime mortars. 
Shrinkage Effects
Good quality bricks should be used in dry condition. All of work should be protected from rain. 

As we all know fluid includes gases and liquids, things which are compressible and sometimes non-compressible and doesn't have a shape as a bulk but might have fixed volume in case of liquids. Mechanics is a branch of physics that deals with state of rest or motion of something or somebody   under the influence of an external force. 

Definition of Fluid Mechanics 

"“Fluid Mechanics with Engineering Applications by Finnemore and Franzini” is used as a textbook"
Thus we can define fluid mechanics as the science of liquids and gases. 
Fluid mechanics involves many of the same principles of solid statics and dynamics, but fluids is a more complex subject because solids involve the study of forces on discrete bodies, while in fluid bodies flow together. 
Fluid Mechanics with Engineering Mechanics by E. John Finnemore and Joseph B. Franzini

Applications of Fluid Mehanics

Fluid mechanics has huge number of applications in our everyday life, some of them includes, designing of water supply system, dam spillway designs, shock absorbers and brakes in vehicles, design of ships and submarines, design of aircrafts and rocks, design of windmills and turbines, design of bearings etc. 

Solution Manual to Fluid Mechanics by Franzini and Finnemore

In almost whole of the world, “Fluid Mechanics with Engineering Applications by Finnemore and Franzini” is used as a textbook, the book is written in very simple English with practical applications along with thousands of practical field oriented numerical to test the knowledge and judgment of the fluid engineer. 

In this post I am going to share with you the Solution Manual of Fluid Mechanics with Engineering Application 10th Edition by Finnemore and Franzini. It starts from all of the simple problems and reach out to the difficult ones as well. In each of the start of the chapter you get the whole idea and division of the problems which are difficult ones and which are easy ones thus for your time saving you can reach out the level you think you are in.

You might have travelled above 1000 feet in aero-plane but you must not have travelled at that much height with a Railcar, But Indian engineers are ready to lift such a bulky weighty weighing car of iron to a height 35 meters more than that of Eiffel Tower.
"The Project worth more than 90 million is being handled by the Railway Corporation. It includes more than 25 thousands tones of steel."

Background of the Project

Currently Guizhou Province of China is enjoying the world’s tallest railway bridge which stands over Beipanjiang River but despondently this record is about to break in 2016 as its height of 275 meters is by no means near to 359 meters which is the expected height of arch-shaped steel railway bridge.

According to a local News agency this bridge is expected to be ready by December 2016. The steel structure has obviously a poor vibrating dampness  characteristics, for this reason safety and precautions have been made to avoid any devastating earthquake and wind speeds.

Project currently in development stages


The Project worth more than 90 million is being handled by the Railway Corporation. It includes more than 25 thousands tones of steel. Due to the difficult typography of the area few of the tones has to be transported by Helicopters.

Project Purpose

The Project named as Chenab Bridge spanning Chenab River between Bakki and Kauri, in Reasi Distric of Jammu and Kashmir. Due to questions on its safety and stability the project had been stopped in 2008 after which it is restarted in 2010 due to assurance and deep model study of the project.

Percentage water absorption of coarse aggregate of given sample is 2.472 %.

A variety of engineering activities require excavation of rock cuts. In civil engineering, projects include transportation systems such as highways and railways, dams for power production and water supply, and industrial and urban development. In mining, open pits account for the major portion of the world’s mineral production. 
The dimensions of open pits range from areas of a few hectares and depths of less than 100 m, for some high grade mineral deposits and quarries in urban areas, to areas of hundreds of hectares and depths as great as 800 m, for low grade ore deposits. The overall slope angles for these pits range from near vertical for shallow pits in good quality rock to flatter than 30◦ for those in very poor quality rock.
