SD1 Project Termwork Archieve - Unleashing the Power of Microsoft Excel | TE Civil

Designing Something like this was the Part of the Project

While in the 5th Semester that is in the 1st semester of Third year A project to design an industrial truss along with a few more elements was assigned to us. A group of 3 members to analyse and design the structural frame of the industrial shed.

To expedite our works and improve our overall efficiency we opted for the use of software and typically our best hands on software Microsoft Excel

Check out the video below to learn about the initial design procedure




So without wasting any more time here I present before you the entire folder of the files and drawings that we'd created during the course of our project, please note that these files may be wrong or having errors. They're meant only for the purpose of reference.


Basically it involved a lot of manual labour to design the excel template but once it was done I was simply able to modify the members and as I'd included the logical checks by just changing the members I was able to find the most economical member, avoiding the huge amount of calculation.



A few glimpse of the excel sheet:




Finally was able to implement the axial load analysis on Excel after a lot of trial and error on paper!








Hope you found this post useful...

Thanks!

Foundation Engineering (SPPU) | Learning Aids



It's undeniable that reading improves your imagination but a little dose of my multimedia could add the delicious topping to the pizza of knowledge. 

After reading and brainstorming for some time I finally resorted to my ultimate weapon, YouTube Videos to have a glimpse of what the concepts actually are and how are they practically implemented. With no surprise to the fact that a number of doubts and uncertainties were cleared... 

Finally having benefited myself I'd wanted to share the stuffs I found useful in the Internet Jungle. 


Check Out the YouTube playlist below:



Hope this makes Foundation Engineering interesting and easy...

If the above videos aren't visible or having errors we recommend you to click here to launch the playlist in the YouTube app if you're using mobile device else on the YouTube website.


Finally I would end up with a quote from my teacher Prof. Noorina Tarannum  

On a construction site everyone knows what is happening above the ground surface but the only thing that differentiates a Civil Engineer is the knowledge of whats happening below the surface, in simple terms foundation.


As you can see the playlist is incomplete and I would like to add a few more videos to it. To be updated of the changes/additions we recommend you to perform the following:


1. Add the playlist to your YouTube library for quick access/updates.
2. Subscribe to our YouTube channel.
3. Review this post in a few days.

Thanks for reading hope you found it useful, share it with others and also comment about your experience.

After all, what is more rewarding for good other than Good.
