Geotechnical engineers basically study soil and other earth components, to check if a site is suitable for a proposed project. Geotechnical engineers are mostly doing field work, collecting samples and studying the behaviour of soil so most of them work in the office. A geotechnical engineer is able to determine whether the soil is suitable for a building foundation and they’re capable of investigating landslides, earthquakes and sinkholes. They also can also treat soil to make it stable enough through processes such as compaction through their tests and investigation. Sometimes soil needs to be stabilised by compaction and the geotechnical engineer will have to determine the amount water needed to achieve adequate compaction.
Water resource engineers design and oversee the construction of water management systems. The importance of water management systems can be illustrated easily in countries where rivers are a major source for hydration. In water-stressed countries, water resource engineers work alongside with the government in order to manage and distribute water efficiently among the citizens, industries, and companies as well. Furthermore, it is important to realize that not all water resources are safe and sanitary enough for public use and distribution. In these cases, water resource engineers play a very important role by designing facilities, reservoirs, and treatment tanks
The relationship between watershed urbanization and aquatic ecosystem conditions has long been recognized and studied (Klein 1979, Benke et al 1981, Pitt and Bozeman 1983, Booth and Jackson 1997); even so, Arnold and Gibbons (1996) state that traditional stormwater planning has emphasized engineering for safety. This approach focuses on moving large amounts of runoff out of an area by collecting runoff in ditches and pipes, and then diverting it into nearby streams. A growing concern, however, has been for the downstream effects of this approach to stormwater management. Flooding, erosion, sedimentation and contamination are all possible outcomes from this approach. It is this concern for
The building of dam for hydropower generation is one human activity that impact the water cycle. Change in land use and cooling water for power plants. (geocases2, n.d.). Reducing human impact on the water cycle could change life in a serious way, both for the negative and the positive. One of the activities as mentioned above is damming of lakes for hydroelectricity.
Provides safe building inspections The drone eliminates most of the risks associated with conventional building inspection methods. The risks arise due to the nature and design of the buildings. Complex designs, great heights, deteriorated roofs and structures as well as hard to access areas can pose a lot risk to the workers, occupants of a building and those people around it. Collecting the data without putting the lives of the workers at risk is one of the major benefits of the using drones to inspect a wide range of
Abstract- Being a Civil Engineering Student and specialization in infrastructure development Engineering Geology is very important. It is that branch of applied sciences which deals with the application for a safe, stable and economic design and construction of a civil engineering projects. It is rather a new field of applied sciences that has developed due to interaction between the civil engineering practice and geological sciences. Introduction- In today’s fastest growing world day by day infrastructure development of any country like India is very important for their growth and for a career as a civil engineer, grasp of fundamental of engineering geology is almost universally considered as essential as that of soil mechanics, strength of material or theory of structures. The present application of geological knowledge in planning, designing and construction of very big civil engineering projects is considered not only desirable but also absolutely essential.
They are created and accustomed in such a way that they cannot be modified or get disfigured or breakdown in the hostile environment. Difficult exploration is also an advantage of having an AI programmed in a computer. AI programmed can be used in many ways, it can be used by exploring ocean floor, it can be used in mining, it can be used in fuel examinations process or surveying Fuels and it can overcome human Limitations. Also they can perform more laborious work with greater responsibility. Moreover, they do not wear out easily.
Assignment on Engineering & Management Responsibilities in Natural Disasters By Date Abstract Disaster is defined to be an event causing sudden and unexpected great loss. The field of disaster management focuses on minimizing any kind of serious risks. It involves supporting and rebuilding the society in a managerial way after manmade or natural disaster occurs. There are two ways through which engineering has been contributing towards the disaster management: by building a proper infrastructure to prevent the damage caused by disasters, settling of appropriate design and safety standards. Disaster management through engineering contribution and principles is presented in this paper.
Limitations: Certain improvements are required for following: • Recognition of obstacles as water, soft and very small objects. • Recognition of colors • Recognition of obstacles when it is present in all directions at the same time. • Person can get irritated and confused by sound of beep. Improvements which can be done: • It can be further enhanced by using VLSI technology to design the PCB units as it makes the system more compact. • We can also use active RFID tags that will transmit the location information automatically to the system unit, when the intelligent belt is in its range.
