I'm stuck with the question. Where does the point of con-traflexture occurs in a loaded beam? Is it the place where bending moment is minimum or whether bending moment is maximum?

I have a question about construction joint in waffle slab. I know that construction joints are located in the third mid of the span. However, in a waffle slab how can I locate a construction joint in a waffle slab? I would also appreciate if you could give some resources about waffle slab and dome's dimensions and design.

Hi everyone, i'm doing a research for a university paper on DIY builders and default plan designers vs engineers and architects. There are so many webpages and sites where you can download plans for free that allow people to build their own house without the need of an architect or engineer. Id love to hear your thoughts on that, is this affecting architects and engineers careers in any way?

My inyinirs, i show you my project for a government complex. I only need to fill the area which is inside, and my guests say that the central building of that place must be triangular. The problem for me is that it's not easy to locate in a central place because the triangulation, which triangulation system do you recommend me?. I have been talking with Calatrava's office but they say that the best solution is a curve structure.....but my guests want it triangular. What can i do, my friends?. The time is running for me. I show you the planning in here. Here is the photo... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10202058420836813&set=gm.10152263787995645&type=1&theater

Could anybody please tell me what are the different types of curing? We are actually measuring shrinkage of mortar prisms. While few mortar prisms have been dipped in water, others are kept in a tray covered with plastic sheet such that only the bottom surface of the mortar prism is touched with water? Could anybody please explain what difference would it make in the shrinkage results between these two cases?
Thanks in advance!

We want to raise a steel structure for 30 minutes to weigh. The problem is the end points of columns should not be damaged so I thought of using wood in a steel plate box as pillows between column and plate as in the draft below. Could this work or do you have other opinions. I am scared if the column cuts through the wood and touches steel plate. The end should stay intact.
Thanks in advance

Hi. Just a quick request. Could somebody tell me the minimal length of cantilever beam (in relation to the dimensions of the cross-section). Additionally I'd need a reference... - I need if for my thesis and cannot find a source. Thanks in advance!!
