VERY LARGE FLOATING STRUCTURES: APPLICATIONS

Large pontoon-type floating structures have been termed Mega-Floats by Japanese engineers. As a general rule of thumb, Mega-Floats are floating structures with at least one of its length dimensions greater than 60 m. Referring to Fig. 1, a Mega-Float system consists of a (a) very large pontoon floating structure

US20140311058A1 - Precast concrete floating structure for

The precast concrete floating structure for supporting a wind turbine comprises a precast SPAR-type monolithic platform made of concrete prestressed by means of active reinforcement bars. The structure is formed by a cylindrical section ( 13 ) finished at its lower end by a hemispheric cap ( 23 ) which acts as a flotation element and another cylindrical and/or frustoconical upper section ( 12

Advantages and Disadvantages of Concrete - Civil Engineering

Concrete is considered as a chemically combined mass where the inert material acts as a filler and the binding materials act as a binder. The most important binding materials are cement and lime. Inert materials used in concrete are termed as aggregates.Most common aggregates are sand, brick chips, stone chips, gravel, shells, etc.The concrete plays a very important role in all branches of

Floating Columns in Buildings - Structural Guide

A transfer floor could be a set of deep beams connected together or flat plate (Thick concrete slab).. The columns starting from the transfer floor are floating column and they are structural columns. In Normal Buildings; Even in a normal building, if we can’t continue the existing columns though it is a small building, we start new column form beams.

What Is Floating Slab| Floating Slab Construction | How to

Building a floating slab is one of the most economical ways of constructing a foundation.Traditional foundations include a strip foundation using a frost wall above.. The strip footing is installed below the frost level, typically 4′-0″ below grade.The cost of a strip footing and frost wall is a lot higher because there are more excavation, concrete, and labour required.
