Wind Engineering: Vibration and Dynamic Response Analysis on Structures

27 August 2018

An entire science has built up around this single doctrine. In short, when the wind blows, structures are influenced by its force. Trees sway in the wind because of this principle. If they were hard but inelastic, then they’d break as soon as the first heavy gust blew. It’s the same for man-made structures. Steel and other structural alloys are hard, yet they’re also simultaneously flexible. The Science behind Wind Engineering This isn’t meteorology speak or some debate about climate change. No, these are behavioural analysis patterns, which extrapolate wind loads and shear forces, as created by the air currents […]

Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) Services

17 August 2018

Water sensitive urban design (WSUD) assesses fluid resources. Imagine the discipline integrating every artificial water system, as created by the urbanites occupying a region, then adding Mother Nature’s impact to the study. Thanks to WSUD, the planning of under and over ground assets, we can monitor life-sustaining water supplies, then use intelligent engineering practices to manage this precious resource. What is WSUD? Water sensitive urban design monitors and controls our fluid medium by observing plant and vegetation absorption ratios. That’s Mother Nature’s contribution to the issue. From here, the discipline moves into urbanized territory. Graded concrete surfaces and curving roads […]

Rainwater Harvesting System: How Does it Work?

27 July 2018

Rainwater harvesting systems are designed to collect and store what would otherwise escape into a drainage system. Yes, drains are essential, but we don’t want all of the runoff to slip away. Imagine a heavy storm in a desert community. The streets are afloat in floodwater. However, after the water drains, the town is dry again. We need a proportional response, a collection mechanism that works with the drains. A Rainwater Collection Solution To review, they’re the catchment units that collect rainwater throughout infrastructure-regulated land parcels. They’re built as small garden barrels, as rooftop tanks, and in many other man-made […]

Stormwater Drainage and Flooding Investigations Services: The Importance of Risk Assessment

13 July 2018

Urban drainage systems are expected to function at their best, no matter the threat. That’s something of a bold assertion. Regardless of the potential flooding conditions, stormwater drainage conduits ought to perform as designed. Unfortunately, those designs exist on paper, and that functional best only exists inside a mathematical model. To provide empirical evidence, the scientific data needs bolstering. We need the services of a risk assessment study. Flooding Investigation Services Blueprints are an engineer’s best friend, but they don’t exactly provide real-time information. To discover the actual conditions inside drainage culverts and gullies, infrastructural engineers need to be on-site. […]

Uses and Purposes of Storm Water Detention Tanks

26 June 2018

Stormwater detention tanks, as the label implies, are designed to detain this essential natural resource. Granted, the sight is enthralling. Huge quantities of water are flowing across the ground and rapidly draining away. It’s only when the storm is over that we realize the life-giving liquid is gone. Arid regions can’t afford that kind of woolly-headed thinking. The heavy downpour needs to be held back, far from the drains. Addressing Urban Imbalance Unfortunately, even rainy regions are suffering. If large cities are made from tons of concrete, then those solid blocks won’t exactly work with the ecosystem. Sure, they drain […]
