Ask me questions only for structural Design. That is Design of R.C.C.(Column, beam, slab).
I am getting queries on VASTU !! I hate it !!!!
-Not interested for estimating, Vastu !!!!
Thank you !!!
I am structural engineer, having expertise in fully computer aided design with 20 years of experienc. I have designed small as well large, residential as well industiral building in India as well in USA.
I have found that house owners, builders do lot of expenditure on interior, Vastu.....but less on structure.
It is required to have suitable strength to building so that it can resist loads including earthquake.
The basic difference between architect/interior designer and structural engineer is same as difference in beautician and doctor.... Architect/interior designer gives importance to asthetic look and doctor gives importance to strengh and life.
To give proper required strength to building or a structure, structural engineer performs calculations to decide sizes of the column, beam, lintels, foundation and also calculates the number of reinforcing(STEEL RODS) bars and its diameter. Structral drawings gives details of beams, columns, foundations, lintels, slabs with sizes of bars and detaling of reinforcement.
