the thursday challenge!


This Thursday challenge is “Construction”. And i was excited the moment i read the topic 😀 this was one topic sculpted for me! (don’t start pelting stones at me ;))
we had done a model of a building showing the ways in which it could be made “green”. our class as a whole accepted the work and we started of planning.:d once done with it we got all the plywood, paints, nails, saw, hammer, markers, etc. then started the best part putting the plan together.:rainbow :$ we had a group of girls marking the lines for doors, windows, ends of walls, etc. and the boys taking the saws in their hands. have a look at it… 8)
stage 1: discussing the plan and marking. 8|
stage 2: nailing the plywoods together and painting them (1st coat)
stage 3: after second coat of paint our “building” is transferred from the “manufacturing” site to the final site.
our final product! :h

Cheers!

My first Blog post in CE VoiCE!


I have been regularly reading the articles published in the CE-VoiCE which is the official Blog of the Crazyengineers website. I had wanted to write blog posts on the civil engineering topics at the VoiCE and so submitted my first blog post.

Here it is : The Pearl Bridge

Guys do read it 🙂 that’s construction project is engineering at it’s peak!

The thing i liked the most about it is they employed their own country men for all jobs right from the foremen to the project head. Even the softwares and technology they used were what they invented themselves. They didn’t depend on the best people from other nations and took the job in their own hands. That’s what i admire about these Japanese. And they mad it a point to have precision to the millimeter scale in this project. 😀 ISN’T THAT GREAT ENGINEERING?

cheers!
