Angshuman Panday : Finite Element Analysis and Computer Implementation of Plane Elasticity Problems

The formal presentation of Finite Element Method was given by Argyris and Kelsey in the Year of 1960 and Turner, Clough, Martin, and Topp in the year of 1956. The term Finite Element was first used by Clough in 1960. Since its inception the application of the Finite Element Method has grown exponentially and today i almost all the fields where the results of a problem seek solution of a differential equation, the Finite Element Method is contemplated as the most competitive one among the others. The project “ Finite Element Analysis and Computer Implementation of Plane Elasticity Problems” has been presented through six sections. The first three sections establish the theory of the method in a step wise manner for one dimensional, and two dimensional finite elements. The fourth section presents the numerical methods that are used to solve the integrations that arrive and are required to be solved for achieving the solution of the problems. The fifth section establishes the theory and development of finite elements for plane elasticity problems and the sixth section shows how the method can be used, and implemented on a digital computer to solve similar kind of problems in a general way. The project is concluded by the six sections described above.

C. V. Sudhakar : Project Report On Development Of A GUI Application For The Design Of Simple Structural Members  

The object of reinforced concrete design is to achieve a structure that will result in a safe and economical solution. For the design there are three methods of approach namely the working stress method, the ultimate load method and the limit state method. These methods are equally applicable to RC priestesses concrete as well as steel structures. Among these the most rational approach and now has been incorporated in the construction industry is the limit state method of design. The IS Code: 456 also emphasize mainly the limit state method of design. The design of a simple RC structure includes the design of its basic elements like beam, slab, column and footing. In this project, we have developed a GUI based software application involving the limit state method of designing of basic elements of a simple RC structure. This application helps all users from beginners to practicing professionals in understanding the design the design of basic elements of a simple RC structures with the available data


Debopam Chanda : Collapse Analysis of India Gate

India is the country with great architectural legacy. It is a country of the great Rajas and Maharajas who built monuments and temples throughout the country. To protect these historical monuments against natural disasters like earthquakes should be our primary aim and responsibility. The main objective of the project is the development of a social and economic argument to support an earthquake protection innovative program for cultural heritage masonry buildings at risk. One of the structures which we have considered here is the India Gate situated right in the heart of New Delhi. The India Gate is of great political importance to us. It was built way back in 1921 in memory of the heroes who sacrificed their lives during World War I. In this project, India Gate has been analysed for collapse using a new method called Applied Element Method. A series of ground motion has been given as input and it has been analyzed whether the structure is stable or not during strong earthquakes which are likely to ht Delhi in the near future.


G. Swathi Kamala : Numerical modeling of Structures

Past earthquakes proved that pounding may cause serious damage when there is insufficient gap between adjacent buildings. Pounding is a serious problem in urban areas such as Bombay, where the buildings are build close one another. The aim of this project is to analyze the earthquake induced pounding between two inadequately separated buildings. In the analysis, two structures of different heights are modeled using AEM and floor-to-floor and floor-to-column problems are analyzed to study the pounding phenomena in detail. Also a row of similar structures is modeled to study their response to pounding problems.

Komali K : Modeling,Analysis and Design of State Bank of Hyderabad Adilabad

Modeling analysis and design for any structure is necessary before starting field work. The whole process of analysis and design takes more time if done manually. Hence many software are developed to optimize the process of analysis and design. The software used in this project is ETABS nonlinear V8.5. ETABS is one of the software used to model analyze and design a structure in 3D view. The material properties frame sections and slab wall sections to the required units can be defined. It generates the reinforcement details for all the members, deformed shape of the structure to the respective load conditions and also generates the maximum and minimum bending moments and shear forces for the worst load condition. The main objective of the project deals with the Modeling, analysis and desings of SBH Adilabad. It also contains the excel sheet programs for the design of slab and footing. The summary of the project is to find the damaging mode shapes and the corrective actions to be taken. The study of mode shapes is done to find the effect of each mode shape on the building. This is a fair step to find out the damaging modes and take corrective actions like

                      A Improving the stiffness of the members

                      B Providing shear walls.

                      C Improving irregularities in the plan

Nishant Mehta : Project Report on Columbus Data Structure File Editor

Information management in infrastructure development companies is a very difficult proposition especially for multi national companies executing projects in varied projects residing on varied servers located in varied countries would be very time information. Columbus helps in logical viewing of data of any particular project or category in a manner that is specified by the user. The data can be scattered anywhere across the network and the same logical view can be gather all the files and folders for a project under one heading even though they are spread across multiple directories, servers around the office or globe or accessible by different methods e.g. remote file systems, FTP etc and the same folder structure can be shared by all members working on the project. This makes it easier to find view edit and print project data regardless fo the document type or where it resides. The Columbus Data Structure file typed is used by Columbus to create and store the logical organization of files and folders as viewed from a particular location. The project titled Columbus Data Structure File Editor is a tool which helps in visually editing and manipulating the Columbus Data Structures files as per user requirements.


P Naveen Kumar : Fracture Analysis of A plate With Central Crack Under Tension

The crack driving force and the material resistance depend on the fracture mechanics regime. In general a safety factor is applied to the material resistance in comparison with the crack driving force to determine the allowable flaw size for a component. The basic criterion in any fracture mechanics analysis is to prevent failure.
