How to be Successful in your Civil Engineering Career?
Bar Bending Schedule:
Bar bending schedule is an essential chart for civil engineers. It provides the reinforcement calculation of RC beam such as cutting length, type of bending, the length of bending etc.
Tests Of Materials:
A good civil engineer should have proper knowledge of different tests of building materials. Some important tests are listed below.
Concrete Test: Slump test, compression test, Rebound Hammer Test , Temperature test ,split tensile test, soundness etc.
Soil Test: Core cutter test, compaction test, sand replacement test, triaxial test, consolidation test etc.
Bitumen Test: Ductility test, softening point test, gravity test, penetration test etc.
Communication Skills. In Civil Engineering – perhaps more so than other Engineering fields – the ability to communicate effectively is a highly sought after skill. Whether dealing with Management or a client, Engineers need to be able to clearly communicate ideas and give direction leaving no ambiguity. They must also be able to listen and benefit from the ideas of others in the team.
IS Codes Used In Construction:
All new construction should be done by following all the rules and procedures mentioned in the standard codes. Otherwise, chances of failure of a structure will be always high.
Estimation and Bills:
Estimation and bills should be prepared by a civil engineer in a construction project.
Uses Of Surveying Instruments:
Usages of surveying instruments like the total station, theodolite etc is also a mandatory knowledge for every civil engineer. These instruments are used for marking and measurements.
Drawing And Design:
Drawing and design are the primary keys of an ongoing project. It provides all the required specifications of that project. Every site engineers should have the analyzing power of such drawings and designs
