How To Be The Successful Civil Engineer.
Civil Engineering Requirements.
Being the good & successful Civil Engineer is not so easy. u need to full some of important requirements to achieve this. In this article, I will share the top ten requirements to be a successful civil engineer.
1) – Tests Of the Building Materials.
The good civil engineer should have proper knowledge of the different tests of building materials. Some important tests are listed below.
Slump test, compression test, split tensile test, soundness and etc.
Core cutter test, compaction test, sand replacement test, triaxial test, consolidation test and etc.
Ductility test, softening point test, gravity test, penetration test and etc.
2) – Investigation Of soil.
Various soil tests are conducted to determine the settlement and the stability of soils before starting construction. So as the civil engineer, u should have enough knowledge of these tests which are performed at the site.
3) – Uses Of the Surveying Instruments.
Usages of the surveying instruments like the total station, theodolite and etc are also mandatory knowledge for the every civil engineer. These instruments are used for marking & measurements.
4) – Standard Codes Used In the Construction.
Every country has its standard safety specifications (eg: Is Code) for the construction-related works. All the new construction should be done by following all the rules & procedures mentioned in the standard codes. Otherwise, the chances of failure of the structure will be always high.
5) – Bar Bending Schedule (BBS)
The Bar bending schedule is an essential chart for civil engineers. It provides the reinforcement calculation of the RC beam such as cutting length, type of the bending, the length of bending, etc.
6) – Drawing And Design.
Drawing and the design are the primary keys of an ongoing project. It provides all the required specifications of that project. Every site engineer should have the analyzing power of such drawings & designs.
7) – Estimation and Bills.
Estimation & bills should be prepared by the civil engineer in a construction project.
8) – Quality Control.
The Quality control ensures the profit of the project by reducing the extra costs. So u must have a basic knowledge of the quality control.
9) – On-Field Management.
Knowledge of the form-work, concreting, safety measures, etc is also a key aspect.
10) – Coordination With Labor.
As the civil engineer, u must know how to deal with laborers on a site.
If you have all the above requirements we hope u will be the good and successful Civil Engineer. Best of luck.
