Civil engineering projects are quite complex as it contains lots of specifications and are also concerned with individual lives of many people. Every year natural hazards and calamities occur due to various criteria.
- Project 1: Safe water technology in Construction
Many people die due to earthquakes and an earthquake occurs due to mechanical vibration given by the earth crust due to sudden release of energy. This mechanical vibration occur due to the presence of seismic waves and study of earthquakes are called as seismology. Final year civil engineering students had started their quest to know more about earthquakes and its preventive measures. An earthquake can be created artificially by means of constructing an earthquake shaking table and constructing its simulation which is said to be a hard challenge for final year civil engineering students. By means of making an earthquake shaking table, one can study the comparisons between input signal and the shake table response in terms of time and frequency according to the appropriate similitude laws.

Many architects and civil engineers make the earthquake shaking table to study the dynamic behaviour of the earth structure, character of seismic vibration, integrity of the buildings and necessary reinforcements to add on the structure. It also helps in building perfect bridges and beams, walls and foundations without any failure by testing the resistance and sensitivity of the building structure. The main components of the earthquake shaking table are the knuckle joints, connecting rod, bearings, shake table, shaft, motor, supporting rods etc and the construction system comprises of kinematic arrangement. There are two types of earthquake shaking tables and they are,
- Main shake table
- Secondary guide table
The necessary step by step construction methods, components, calculation of the components, derivations, mathematical modelling, simulation steps are all clearly explained in this content and all downloadable too. This content also contains a project report for all final year civil engineering students to do their civil engineering projects and it also benefits the diploma students to do their civil projects on research basis too.
