Learn latest design techniques, civil engg. students told

‘The subject is as old as Harappa and Mohenjo-daro’

“The subject of civil engineering is as old as Harappa and Mohenjo-daro civilizations. Application of civil engineering principles for construction of roads, canals and buildings have been in existence since ancient days,” said Ultratech, South India, vice-president (technical services) Y.T.V.V. Prasad. He was addressing a seminar on ‘Concrete Mix Proportioning’, hosted by the civil engineering department of MVR College of Engineering and Technology in association with Ultratech, here on Friday.

Major concerns

He pointed out that strength and durability are major concerns in determining quality of concrete structures. “It is the need of the hour for budding civil engineers and architects to hone their knowledge in latest design techniques in preparing high grade concrete mix proportioning such as M100 used for construction of gigantic structures like Burj Dubai and Palm Islands,” he said.

Expert tips

In-charge principal of the college K. Sridhar presided over the inaugural session and advised the students to go beyond university curriculum and acquire skills in emerging trends of ready mix concrete design in building construction and keep themselves updated by attending technical seminars.

Emphasising on the objective of the seminar, convenor of the seminar and HoD of civil engineering department K.Shyam Prakash said, “This seminar was aimed at introducing various types of concretes such as coloured concretes, decorative concretes, stampede concretes and their design methodologies for the benefit of students and researchers in civil engineering discipline.”

Ultratech RMC (ready mix concrete) Senior officer Anil spoke. Over 350 students, research scholars and faculty members from various engineering colleges attended the seminar. Chairman of the college M. Srinivasa Babu was present.
