Structural elements can be linear, surfaces or volumes.

Linear elements:

 

Rods

Beams

Struts or compression member

 

Surface elements:

Membrane

Moisture/Thermal Movement of Clay Bricks – Movement in Domestic Buildings

Moisture/Thermal Movement of Clay Bricks – Movement in Domestic Buildings

Structural engineers design, plan and research structural elements and structural components to ensure safety of buildings and occupants. Consideration is given to the various structural elements, the durability of those materials and their  performance under stress and structural loads.

One such scenario where structural elements show a short coming if not applied correctly, is the movement of clay bricks  due to moisture absorbtion and thermal influences can cause movement in domestic buildings.

Other structural elements formed out of materials which are subject to moisture changes will react similarly. Clay bricks delivered straight from the kiln will undergo an expansion as they absorb moisture and will continue to be affected, albeit to a lesser degree, by changing atmospheric conditions. Such movement in domestic buildings, more often than not, results in cracking of the wall, as allowance for movement is rarely provided in low-rise buildings.

The cracks will generally appear at changes in the section of the walling, i.e. at openings, at changes in the thickness or height of the wall, perhaps where chases are cut, or where piers or partition walls are built.

Shrinkage of Clay Subsoils

Shrinkage of Clay Subsoils

shrinkage of clay subsoilSubsidence of Foundations, shrinking subsoils, desiccated subsoilsShrinkage of clay subsoils can follow a change in ground water levels, a change in atmospheric conditions, the influence of nearby trees, etc.

Subsidence which affects the whole building to a similar extent may not cause a serious problem. It is the shrinkage of clay subsoils that causes differential subsidence which causes the main problems and results in the need to consider remedial works.

Sulphate Attack on Footing Foundation

Sulphate Attack on Footing Foundation

 sulphate attack, footing foundation, structural engineer in canberra actSulphate attack can  affect  footing foundation and even piles if the circumstances are right. The use of sulphate-resisting cement may not always avoid the problem of sulphate attack and it is safer to try and avoid the use of, or contact between, the three major elements of the condition – sulphates, moisture and the concrete.
