Best of Detail: Sanierung/Refurbishment (Bilingual Edition)

Filenote: PDF retail from EBL

The wanted or important measures, despite the fact that, are continuously customized and differ significantly. hence, there's no standardised or extensively understood time period that may be used to explain the diversity of building actions concerning present structures. Reflecting this, better of aspect Refurbishment provides a entire diversity of highlights from aspect at the themes of protection, extension, recovery, refurbishment and conversion.

In addition to specialized theoretical contributions, the booklet positive factors an in depth part with examples of tasks. From small-scale measures to the supersized classification, it deals ample notion in addition to quite a few ways to fixing problems.

• upkeep, extension, upkeep, modernisation and conversion
• tools and making plans approaches
• layout aids and assets of inspiration
• specialized articles and examples of tasks

Guidance Note 4: Protection Against Fire (IEE Guidence Notes) (No 4)

A chain of steering Notes has been issued, each one of which enlarges upon and amplifies the actual standards of part of BS 7671:2001 (IEE Wiring laws, sixteenth Edition). each one of those courses is greatly cross-referenced to the rules therefore offering handy and prepared entry. a few suggestions Notes comprise details now not integrated within the sixteenth variation yet which used to be incorporated in prior versions of the IEE Wiring rules.

Electrical installations in hazardous locations

The 3rd variation of this best-selling textual content maintains to familiarize electricians with the complex information of appearing electric installations in harmful destinations. meant to function a basic reference at the periods, teams, and divisions of unsafe destinations, the textual content offers clients with a finished advent to what unsafe destinations are and aren't, sooner than progressing to extra complicated issues similar to the necessities for apparatus defense platforms, safety opposed to ignition from static electrical energy and lightning, and NEC® compliance.

Sample text

For economy in materials, prestressed concrete piles should be made with designed concrete mixes with a minimum 28-day works cube strength of 40N/mm2. 6 that some codes specify a maximum load which can be applied to a precast concrete pile of any dimensions. As in the case of timber piles this limitation is to prevent unseen damage to piles which may be over-driven to achieve an arbitrary set given by a dynamic pile-driving formula. Concrete made with ordinary Portland cement is suitable for all normal exposure conditions but sulphate-resisting cement may be needed for aggressive ground conditions sa discussed in Chapter 10.

Reinforcement may be needed in any case to resist bending stresses due to lateral loads or tensile stresses from uplift loads. Where high-capacity piles are to be driven to a hard stratum savings in the overall quantity of concrete compared with cast-in-situ piles can be achieved since higher working stresses can be used. Where piles are to be driven in sulphate-bearing ground or into aggressive industrial waste materials, the provision of sound high-quality dense concrete is ensured. The problem of varying the length of the pile can be overcome by adopting a jointed type.

In the spiral welding process the coiled steel strip is continuously unwound and spirally bent cold into the tubular form. The joints are then welded from both sides. 8. In the longitudinally-welding process a steel plate is cut and bevelled to the required dimensions then pressed or rolled into tubular form and welded along the linear joints. The spiral method has the advantage that a number of different sizes can be formed on the same machine, but there is a limitation that plate thicknesses more than about 25mm cannot be handled.
