INTRODUCTION:

Housing is the most important infrastructure without which survival of the humanity would be miserable. In India, the population has been growing with a remarkable percentage growth in urban population. It is very difficult to find vacant lands to fulfill the unlimited demand of houses, particularly in urban areas. Vertical expansion seems to be a prospective solution to solve this problem. The public and private sector are playing very important role in providing housing by way of constructing tall buildings, i.e high rise buildings to provide a large floor area in a relatively small land area to maximize the optimum utilization of lands in urban centers. Hence it is evident that the human aspiration to build increasingly tall structures are inherent from the ancient times baring examples of pyramids of giza, Egypt – Mayan temples of Mexico, Qutub Minar of India. The lateral stability of the structure is most important in addition to the strength, serviceability, human comfort, ductility in design requirements duly integrating architecture with structural design as a complex one. It is essential for everyone involved in construction industry to understand the sequence and programme of planning, construction and issues involved in maintaining the structures to fullfill the designed life of structure.

INTRODUCTION:

Civil Engineering Material testing includes a wide range of applications requiring the determination of both chemical properties and physical properties like strength, size and shape of the materials used in the Construction activities. To keep a high level of structural safety, durability and performance of the infrastructure, an efficient system for early and regular structural assessment is urgently required. The quality assurance during and after the construction of new structures, after reconstruction processes, the characterization of material properties and damage as a function of time and environmental influences is becoming a serious concern. Raw materials are never consistent, construction and manufacturing processes are never perfect, and structural requirements constantly change with new applications, designs, and desired functionality. For these reasons, field and laboratory structural analysis, engineering design and testing will continue as long as there is a need for structural engineering. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view of the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Testing of Civil Engineering Materials” from 24 – 27 July, 2017.
