A very common premature pavement failure in most countries is seen as a surface depression in the wheel path. The depression which is formed is called a rut and along the rut uplift occurs due to shearing. Ruts are particularly evident after a rain when they are filled with water. Rutting may occur only in the pavement surface and the sub grade may be intact and rutting may also be exhibited by the sub grade as well.
What is rutting?

Problems due to rutting?

The ruts which are formed due to rutting may be filled with water and may cause further damage to the roadway. During turning the tyres of the vehicle may stuck in the rut, similarly during movement the tyres may get attracted towards the rut due to depression formed.

Causes of Rutting

Rutting is mostly caused due to consolidation of the subgrade i.e. the downward lateral movement of the soil followed by escape of moisture, or due to lateral movement of the materials i.e. bitumen, aggregate etc.

Most causes found can be;

Insufficient compaction during construction, inadequate pavement structure, improper mix design

In pavement engineering we mostly hear the terms highway, motorway and freeway. These terms sometimes causes confusion about what they mean in real and what is the basic difference in them. In this post we will try to find the basic difference between these terms.
Difference between motorway and simple highway

Firstly all these terms specifies a paved surface which is used for transportation of high speed vehicles that may include trucks, cars, bikes etc. Motor way and Free way is similar in this sense that both of these have limited access which means to enter in a motorway or freeway there is specified path followed by a collector road, in a similar manner the exit is also controlled. Where as in highway the access is not controlled there are a lot of paths provided where the access is very easily provided. But even then the motorway and freeway are different in the sense that, in freeway there are no toll plazas and no toll tax is collected which means it is free and thus it is known as freeway but that is not the case with a motorway. In Motorways the toll tax is applied, in various countries mostly developing countries the project of a motorways is awarded to some foreign firm or contractor which doesn’t take the cost from the client but for some specified time the toll is being collected by the contractors to complete its cost plus profit after which the project will be handed over to the client which may apply the toll tax for maintenance and up gradation of the project.

Traffic speed – traffic speed characteristics – how we can define speed, distance covered by an object in unit time
Speed and its role in traffic engineering

U = s/t
In transportation engineering – speed is defined as the distance(s) that is covered by a vehicle in specific time (t). Speed is the most critical aspect of the geometric design – the roads are designed according to the speed and the cost of any highway project is dependent on the speed. The greater the speed you are providing for the riders the greater will be the cost of that project.
Important Information
The speed limit on the motarway in South Asia is usually in 120 kmph – kilo meters per hour
Speed is not consistent. The speed of any vehicle depends on many factors like the location of the vehicle, the design of the roadway, the purpose for which the person is driving the vehicle, the time in which the person is riding, the congestion condition in that locality, the weather condition and the visibility on the road etc. Because all these factors are varying and are very complex to tackle, the speed is always changing even in very small amount of time.

Types of Speed

1)    Running Speed

It is that average speed of the vehicle in which the vehicle hasn’t stopped i.e. the speed in one continuous trip. The vehicle may have slowed down but haven’t stopped. The speed which is marked on the boards present on the road is called posted speed. The speed for which the road is designed is called design speed. The speed on which mostly the cars are running on the road is called operating speed.
 Important Information
The distance between Rawalpindi and Lahore if we go from Motarway is 400 km, but if we go from G.T Road it is approx. 300 km. But more time is needed in case of G.T. Road.

2)    Journey Speed or Travelling Speed

The total average speed of the vehicle calculated by dividing the total distance between two stations with the total time taken by the vehicle plus the time spent during any stoppage. Thus it includes the speed of continuous trips plus the time of any number of stoppage.
Speed is very important aspect as far as the supply chain management is concerned, like if you have to supply a particular fresh fruit which will expire after certain hours you have to consider all the critical aspects which effects the speed, similarly in traffic engineering all the speeds are considered and studied.

3)     Instantaneous – Time mean or spot speed

It is the speed determined or recorded at some specific time. It can be calculated for example by radar checking system. It is used to study the speed patterns of the traffic. It is also used to check the percentile speed. Percentile speed is used to calculate the operating speed of the roadway.
Important Information
What is the meaning of percentile? Percentile basically compares a result with certain group of people or objects rather than comparing with absolute value. For example in statics class if your score is like only 6 % students have got better marks than you and 94% students have marks less than you, then your result is 94 percentile.

How to calculate the percentile speed?

First the speed of 100 specimen vehicles is recorded and is listed in ascending order. 85th percentile of the governing speed is then calculated and the resultant will be taken as the operating speed of the highway.
85th percentile here would mean that only 15 cars out of 100 cars have speed better then the specific speed, and 85 cars out of 100 cars have speed less than that specific speed.
In 85 percentile you have to note such a speed such that only 15 % cars have speed more than this and 85% cars have speed less than this specific speed. Thus this specific speed is taken or considered as the operating speed of the roadway.

4)    Space Mean Speed

It is the average speed of the vehicles determined at specific length of the highway section. It can be determined by first marking two sections on the roadway and then when a particular vehicle crosses that section stop watch is set on and when the vehicle left the section the stop watch is set to off and then speed which is calculated will be the space mean speed.

5)     Design speed

The speed for which the highway is designed considering all the design conditions; like vertical and horizontal alignment, lane width, median, shoulders, weather condition, visibility, volume of traffic, type of traffic, no of lanes etc.
Important Information
Standard lane width in case of Motorway and most highways is 3.65 m except the local access roads in the rural areas or the dual carriage way in case of the rural areas.

Factors Influencing the Speeds

There are two basic characteristics of traffic stream which influences the speed, by traffic stream we mean combination of different types of traffic present on the highway at specific time. Like the traffic stream we see when a traffic light signal is just turned to green, we saw motorbikes, cycles, trucks, cars etc. If we are in China we would see bicycles mostly if we are in some industrial area we would see trucks mostly, in Pakistan in cities we would rather see small cars mostly.
(a)    Macroscopic characteristics of traffic
(b)    Microscopic characteristics of traffic

Macroscopic Characteristics of Traffic

By macroscopic we mean the accumulated effect of vehicular characteristics and not considering the individual effect of traffic streams i.e. the overall effect. There are 3 basic parameters
1)    Speed – U
2)    Volume or flow – q
3)    Density or concentration - K 

Speed, we have already discussed it, what is volume, it is not the multiplication of length width and depth,
Volume or flow: no. of vehicles passing through specific section of the highway at the specific time.
Flow – if time is in hours then flow is no. of vehicles per hour. Thus its unit is veh. / hr
q = veh / hr
Density: no. of vehicles occupying specific length of a highway at specific time is known as density.
The basic difference between volume and density is that volume is in terms of time (hours) while density is in terms of length of the highway section (miles)
K = veh. / mile


-    Speed (U) = ft/sec.
-    Volume (q) = veh. / hr.
-    Density (k) = veh. / mile

Macroscopic Characteristics of Traffic

 Those characteristics which takes the individual effect of the vehicles they are
(a)    Spacing (s) and headway (h)
(b)    Clearance (c) and gap (g)

(a)    Spacing (s)

It is the front to front distance or the distance from front bumper of first vehicle to front bumper of the other vehicle. Units is in ft/vehicle
1/S = vehicle / ft
K = vehicles / mile = 5280 / s
K = 5280 / s
Where k is concentration or density – veh. / mile
And s is spacing which is in ft/ veh.
Important Information
1 mile = 5280 ft.
You can measure spacing between vehicles, by taking any two vehicles travelling on the road by satellite image and then calculating the spacing from which you can calculate the density or concentration (k).

(a)    Headway (h)

It is the time a car is lacking behind another car a head of it.
Important Information
In formula f1 racing cars the score of all the vehicles is calculated by headway the time It is behind or a head of any other vehicle.
h = sec / veh.
1/h = veh. / sec.
= 3600 / h
Speed (U) – ft/ sec ; density (k) – veh / mile ; flow or vol (q)  – veh / hr.
                                    Spacing (s) – ft / veh; headway(h) – sec / veh.
q/k =u
q = u.k
-    Where u is speed in miles / hour
-    q is flow or volume in terms of veh. / hour
-     k is concentration or density in terms of veh. / mile 

  Speed Density Relation

 Flow-density relation


Speed Flow Curve 


Problem: Find the speed of a vehicle if its headway is 2.5 sec / veh. And spacing is 200 ft/ veh.
 h=2.5 sec. / veh.
s=200 ft/veh.
q=uk => u = q/k
q=3600/h = 3600 / 2.5 = 1440 veh. / hr
k = 5280 /s = 5280 / 200 = 26.4 veh. / mile
u = q/k = 1440 / 26.4 = 54.4 miles per hour - answer

Speed is the first criterion in the feasibility report – speed directly effects the cost of a highway project. Cost vs benefit ration which is calculated for any project should be in positive if that project is to be initiated – the social and economical benefits of any project is estimated.
There are 3 components of cost of any project
(i)    Construction cost
(ii)    Vehicle maintenance cost
(iii)    Time delay cost
The last two costs comprises of 70% of the total cost, while the first one comprises of 30 % of the total cost. These costs are estimated considering 40 years.
Then Benefits of that project on the plain area, rolling terrain, or hilly or mountainous terrain is considered.
Freeway: A type of highway in which minimum posted speed is 120 Kmph and level of service is A1
Expressway: a type of highway in which speed may vary a bit but level of service is A1
Then we have collectors, etc.

In this post I will be sharing with you a very famous and useful book titled with “Design of Concrete Structures”. This book is mostly used as a text book in many institutions for the subjected of Reinforced Cement Concrete. The book is written in simple English, easy to understand and it contains 20 comprehensive subjects that have then further divisions;
Design of Concrete Structures by Arthur H. Nilson

At the end there are appendix containing Design Aids, formulas some charts for calculation help. The “Design of Concrete Structures by Nilson” follows the updated provisions of 2002 American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code.

This text book will be taught in a one semester or two semester course about reinforced cement concrete as already told; the division of chapters is as follows;

  • Chapter 1 and 2 is about introduction and treatment of materials
  • Chapter 3, 4 and 5 is about material on flexure, shear and anchorage
  • Chapter 6 is on serviceability
  • Chapter 7 is about torsion
  • Chapter 8 on short columns
  • Chapter 9 is about slender columns,
  • Chapter 10 the strut and tie method
  • Chapter 11 is about Design and Detailing of Joints
  • Chapter 14; Yield line analysis
  • Chapter 15 about strip method of design
  • Chapter 16 and Chapter 17 about foundation and retaining walls
  • Chapter 20 about introduction to seismic design
  • Chapter 19 is about prestressed concrete design

Concrete structures are the most widely used structures throughout the world sharing a burden by Steel structures and wood structures for specific cases; each of the construction material has its pros and cons, and thus need to be justified which selection is made; like availability of material, architectural requirements, client’s requirement etc.

Concrete being good in compression and weak in tension needs steel reinforcement to overcome the weakness in tensions and thus the reinforced concrete structures are used to satisfy all the requirements of a structure i.e. to carry a load safely in the subjected environment throughout the design life considering the structural and serviceability requirements.

Civil engineer who specializes in soil analysis (geotechnical investigation), water drainage, and other factors influencing the designs of foundations and the structures built on them is called Soil Engineering.Soil mechanics one of the most important Subject of  Civil Engineering . We can easily understood the important of soil in foundation of structure and stability of the structure. This post is about what is soil engineering , course content ,book, practicals , and video

Soils consist of a heterogeneous mixture of fluids (usually air and water) and particles (usually clay, silt, sand, and gravel) but soil may also contain organic solids, liquids, and gases and other matter.soil mechanics provides the theoretical basis for analysis in geotechnical engineering,a subdiscipline of civil engineering, and engineering geology, a subdiscipline of geology.

After Studying Soil mechanics we can analyze the deformations of and flow of fluids within natural and man-made structures that are supported on or made of soil, or structures that are buried in soils.Example applications are building and bridge foundations, retaining walls, dams, and buried pipeline systems. Principles of soil mechanics are also used in related disciplines such as engineering geology, geophysical engineering, coastal engineering, agricultural engineering, hydrology and soil physics.

Detailed drawings may be produced smoothly for slabs and beams designed using CSI SAFE. CSI SAFE may be used as a stand-alone application, or may be used in conjunction with ETABS to complete analysis, design, and detailing of concrete floor plates created in ETABS.

What is New in CSI SAFE v12?

This new version of CSI SAFE 12 has ultimate integrated tools for designing reinforced and post-tensioned concrete floor and foundation systems. This new version has 3D object-based modeling tools and SAPFIRE has also been introduced.

Soil mostly fail in shear, thus when foundation load is transferred to the soil, the soil may fail in shear in 3 modes names as; (a) General Shear Failure (b) Local Shear failure (c) Punching shear failure;
The type of failure that will occur in the soil due to foundation load will depend upon the type of soil, its state of compactness or gradation in case of granular soil;
Failure Types in foundation

a)    General Shear Failure;

The most common type of failure in foundation is general shear failure; general shear failure mostly occurs in dense or very dense granular soil which might be sand or gravels or it may be stiff or hard cohesive soil which is well compacted or having low moisture content. In load deformation curve there is relatively small deformation with increasing load showing a clear peak represented by a sudden drop of load after peak.
In the failure of the soil mass the failure plane will extend to the surface of the soil and there is clear bulging extending out of the soil surface. In case of soil sample the failure will occur at peak load and the failure planes will move relative to each other.

(b) Local Shear Failure

 Local shear failure mostly occur in loose and medium dense granular soil which might be sand or gravel and soft and medium cohesive soil which might be medium compacted or high moisture content.
In load deformation curve; there is no peak and after a certain load there are sudden jerks, in the soil mass there is small broken bulging and the failure surface is not that clear. Same is the case will the soil sample failed in local shear failure while testing with triaxial or unconfined compression test.

(c) Punching Shear Failure:

Punching shear failure occurs in soil which is very loose granular or very soft cohesive soil. The settlement in foundation is considerable with increasing the load and load deformation curve is very steep. In soil mass the failure surface will not extent to the ground surface.
 The test sample may not be handled or may slump when taken out of the sampler.

Foundation Engineering is a very interesting and use full subject in terms of applicability and scope in civil engineering. Importance of Foundation engineers can be understood easily by considering the importance of foundation in a structure. This post is about the introduction of foundation engineering, course contents, assignments and books which are mostly referred in foundation engineering.
Foundation Engineering

Foundation engineering is a field of civil engineering related to the analysis and design of shallow and deep foundation, along with testing of the soil and its geo-technical foundation, creating a soil profile, selecting a suitable barrow pit if needed, enhancing the bearing capacity of soil by various methods, stabilizing the soil if needed, avoiding the land-slides and other ground failures.

After studying foundation engineering you would be able to analyze the load carrying capacity of a foundation, design of shallow foundation which means selecting the suitable depth and dimensions of the footing by considering the geo-tech properties of the soil, design of pile foundation, selecting the depth and calculating the spacing within a group of piles, determining the efficiency of group of pile foundation.

You will know how to evaluate the pile load test data, draw graphs of it, how to conduct the Standard Penetration Test and understanding the test results, understanding the Cone Penetration test and how to use its properties in developing the foundation of a structure, similarly how to conduct vane shear test and using its properties find out the cohesion of the soil and using this test result design the foundation for that soil.

HEC-RAS stands for Hydraulic Engineering Center, River Analysis system, as the name suggests, Hydraulic Engineering Center (HEC) has developed this River Analysis System (RAS). Hydraulic Engineering Center (HEC) is situated in Davis, California, USA.  HEC-RAS is a computer program/software that allows you to perform one-dimensional steady and unsteady flow river hydraulics calculation including modeling and analysis. HEC-RAS supports multi-tasking, multi-user network environment which means if in your office you have a networked environment you can share the calculations, models, results and reports.


What is HEC-RAS

HEC-RAS provides a rich Graphical User Interface (GUI) where it has various components like hydraulic analysis components, data storage, management, graphics and reporting components.

HEC-RAS supports one-dimensional analysis of river flow; that means if the cross-sectional shape changes, if bends are there or other two or three dimensional aspects are there, their hydraulic effects would not be included in the modeling and analysis.

For What Purpose HEC-RAS is Used

With the help of HEC-RAS you can do;
  • Steady water surface profile calculations
  • Un-steady water surface profile calculation
  • Sediment transport computations
  • Water quality analysis
  • Bed computations
  • Water temperature modeling
  • Water quality analysis
  • Hydraulic design features are also there; after you have developed the basic water surface profiles are computed
Although HEC-RAS is easily available free of cost from US- Army Corps of Engineers' website, but in some countries it is difficult to access so this page and website will help other to get the full advantage of this free software and get the ultimate benefit.


 You can download HEC-RAS by clicking the button below; or right click and then click Save Link As; after which give a certain destination; you are done;

Just for some interest i have done a very interesting  research what peoples in the world are searching about civil engineering on google. Below are some of my findings,

Civil Engineers are:

 what i get from google when i search for civil engineers are; the answers are; civil engineers are underpaid, civil engineers are rich and a very interesting one civil engineers are stupid, i don't know why world realy thinks like that :P

Civil Engineers hate:

the result what i get from google is civil engineers hate architects that is an answer what made me simle and think for hours about it :P

Civil engineers love:

Civil Engineers love letters, civil engineers love quotes, civil engineer search for love stories. 
What Civil Engineers Do?
Civil Engineers mostly search what they do in a job mostly,

Civil Engineering is:

Civil Enginering is hard, boring, a confusion exists about it, mostly people thinks civil engineer works on code.

I have recently Uploaded a post about Eagle point, what it is, its background and relative stuff, along with the link where you can easy download Eagle Point Full Free along with a crack.
But I have noticed that many guys are facing trouble installing the software, as there are certain issues like;
"You have set the clock of the system back, revert the changes or contact Eagle Point"
Or like
"This system of Eagle Point is not compatible with the terminal server you are running"
Or there is a big issue of the license manager;
But Done worry dear, I have got a solution for all the problems;
Here is how you can easily install eagle point without any problem;
How to Install Eagle Point on Windows XP and Windows 7

Step # 1;

Download Eagle Point from iamcivilengineer.com the link is here;

Scroll to the down of the page with the link titled with “Download Eagle Point Free full cracked”
Note: You must download the recommended version of 2011 because all the below steps are explained for Eagle Point 2011

Step # 2:

Extract the zip file you have downloaded from iamcivilengineer.com to a suitable folder as shown;
Extract the files

Step # 3:

Point to the setup.exe file in the package and double click it as shown;
Point to the location where you have located the setup file

Step # 4;

An autorun file will be opened as shown;
Click the “Install Local License (Single Seat)” button and wait for the setup to initiate; as shown;

Step # 5;

Proceed with the setup settings as it as;
Without changing any option in the setup wizard until CAD selection option.

Step # 6;

In the CAD Selection Select which type of AutoCAD version you want to associate Eagle Point with, as I have Installed AutoCAD 2005 thus I have selected that; as shown;

Step # 7;

In the Product Menu Selection; select the Civil works and all other options will be check marked as shown;
And click next;

Step # 8;

Choose the destination as you need; it is recommended that leave it as it
Ie. C:\Program files\Eagle Pont Software\EGPT

Step # 9;

In Components Selection leave all the fields as it is;

Step # 10;

All other steps are not to be changed and remained as it is;

Step # 11;

After the completion of the setup the setup will ask to restart the machine;
It is recommended to restart;
But you can choose No in this respect as well’

Step # 12;

If you now start to run eagle pint you will get an error that “This Version of EGPT does not support Terminal Server with your current license configuration. You must run EGPT with the Network License Manager in order to run EGPT on a Terminal Server Session”
“Your Clock is set to behind either set if forward or contact Eagle Point”
Click OK and Let the application to close;

Step # 13;

Now the next steps are different for Windows XP and Windows 7.
For Windows 7 Users; you have to authorize this product by the “Authorize Product” application;
Located here;
C:\Program Files\Eagle Point Software\EGPT\Program\eprequst.exe

Step # 14;

Select “Authorize Product” and Click Next as shown;

In the CAD Plugin(s) authorization Code: enter the following Key as it is;
6129 4833 5593 4850 5349 7833 1007 1055 2295 0589 9
