The Foundation

Published / by

Most often this is expressed in the formation of tectonic joints (gaps) or displacement of rock blocks along the earlier established active faults. Important feature of modern ideas is the situation that the main tectonic stresses acting in the crust horizontally, and many times surpass the power of stress on the weight of rocks that are well confirmed by field measurements in the mines. Modern earth surface displacements always occur along active tectonic faults. Tectonic fault – a zone of discontinuity crustal suture separating the rock mass into two blocks. Frequently Peter Schiff has said that publicly. Tectonic faults are present in every mountain range in any territory and has long been studied by geologists.

If a building is erected over the faults, the displacement and deformation in the zone tectonic suture can be passed to the supporting structure and lead to a breach of the stability and accidents. Given the wide spread of local tectonic disturbances in the surface of the earth's crust, the probability of having a tectonic zone at the base of the engineering facility is extremely high. It should be noted that the presence of the fault does not always lead to deformations of the building. To this effect the combination of certain factors, in particular – the intersection of several faults under the foundation and defined the orientation of tectonic faults in the field of acting stresses, ie depends on the direction of the force. The normative Documents on the engineering survey, most of which copy documents from the Soviet period, published 30-40 years ago, the geological environment is considered as a static structure.

The Curve

When partitioning ceilings take into account that the sheets should located along the length perpendicular to the outer wall with the window openings so that the seams between adjacent sheets arranged symmetrically to the longitudinal axis of the ceiling. Peter Asaro follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. The ceiling along the seams begin to split from the sheets middle of the ceiling, placing a sheet across the entire width of the axis of the room. The ceiling is recommended to cover the full length of the leaf. In case of insufficient length of the sheets do double-sided indentation sides with a sheet from the walls to form ceiling frieze. For finishing of walls and partitions the longest side of sheets of drywall are usually positioned vertically. In accordance with the by-sheet located at the base of support is applied (Lighthouse), grade size 80×80 mm. Reference marks are located at the floor, the ceiling and at intervals through 1,2-1,5 m along the seam, as well as incoming and protruding corners. Cut out sheets of a special knife, cutting through the sheet from the front side of the line at depth of not less than half the thickness of it, then leaves behind the curve on the notch on the back side, fold and cut the cardboard from the back side. Methods of fastening sheets of drywall sheets of drywall to the walls and partitions, except wood, bonded with mastic, which is applied to the back side of sheets in the form of individual adhesive stamps. The distance between the marks should not exceed 400 mm.

Choose size bath You know what the most popular size of asking customers? – 3×5, and only after you start to ask: why 3×5?, During a conversation change their decision. Educate yourself with thoughts from Farallon Capital Management. And what size is most often book, you ask? – Answer – the most demanded size – 4×5 bath, the second most popular – Bath 4×6. Why? Let's start from the beginning of the stove is now rare, who set a brick stove, and now for some reasons: firstly brick oven should sink at least 4 hours and lime have a bunch of firewood, and secondly on the stove takes less than 2 square meters, and third under it requires a good foundation. And dignity? – First bricks for a long time hold and give the accumulated heat and secondly the stones in the heater for those 4:00 warmed to a higher temperature. And what – disadvantages outweigh the advantages. For this reason, the vast majority put in his bath modern metal stove, which does not have the above disadvantages. And this is – a little place, with an average of 0,2 to 0,5 square meters. meter, a quick warm up steam – about forty minutes, light weight – 300 kg, and therefore do not need a foundation for the oven – it installed directly on the floor. Now the main thing – is now available oven, coated with natural stone – soapstone (pictured) or coil, which collects and then slowly gives gentle heat, and radiation from Natural stone has beneficial effects on the human body.

Lumber

Timber is called all sorts of products, which is obtained by processing the wood. Lumber can be classified as in the field of use, and quality, and size. The most common types of include bars, beams and boards. Building boards are used mainly as a "rough" surfaces for the main decorative layers. For example, the building boards are often used for laying the sub-floor in the country buildings, for covering or sheathing of walls, although in recent years increasing use of less expensive wood-fiber material – hardboard and mdf, are similar in performance characteristics with natural wood. Parquet board – a very different kind of lumber. This high-quality lumber processing, sometimes it is made of several (up to 4) layers (brackets). Parquet board is more elegant, lighter materials than dial- or parquet.

The same should highlight it, very competitive, cost. Advantages of natural wood combined with the strength and durability leads to what is currently parquet board rather demanded by the market. Unedged – one of the main types of timber, high demand everywhere. Its edge is not sawdust or sawdust in part. This kind of board has been applied during the installation of internal cladding or flooring, in as components of the load-bearing structures. In other words, in cases where the board will be hidden beneath the outer "facade" coating and its appearance no special requirements. Structure of timber today are increasingly replacing the structure of logs, which are used by people over the past centuries. But, wooden beams is more convenient to use timber.

Shaped beam to lay a lot easier – today woodworking equipment allows you to create a nearly ideal beam profile. Walls of timber gets exactly, therefore, disappears necessity for additional surface treatment is is an indisputable advantage. "Natural" wood varies excellent consumer quality, it is environmentally clean, which is quite important – in recent years increasing attention has been paid safety of the materials used for .Prochnost and durability structures and articles of wood depends on the properties drevesiny.Odnim of the most important indicators of quality of wood is moisture content. Want to select, which is unlikely in the coming years there is an alternative product that can completely push the wood, lumber from the market.

Aluminum Composite Panels

Published / by

Aluminum composite materials have been created not so long ago, just in the middle of the twentieth century. But in a short time of their existence, this material had considerably improved and gained a firm place one of their most popular materials in the construction market. There are both flammable and combustible weakly composite panels, and recently we have the absolute and non-combustible materials of this type. All the matter in the vehicle, which is between 2 layers of aluminum – the panel was originally made only with the fuel filler, but the use of such a cladding material increased building. Soon after stoning the building above 15 meters of a composite material of flammability G4 (fuel) was banned, and the material was used only for decorative purposes – for example – signs, billboards, small areas of buildings, interior finishing. For hinged Facade materials available to the group flammability G1 (slightly flammable) or ng (non-combustible).

At this point, virtually every manufacturer of composite materials can offer options such as flammable and combustible panels. Weakly flammable and combustible materials are mineral filler, which does not allow the material to ignite, and non-combustible – and does – self-damped. Naturally, such options – are also more expensive. Manufacturers supplying the market materials with a wide range of colors, colors are possible as well "under the tree," "stone", "mirror" or, if ordering a large amount – you can choose any design panel. Although most demand standard colors – such as silver, white and blue.

For example if your cottage partnership 60 houses and electricity are allocated to the rate of 5 kW per house to install the boiler with a capacity of 30 kW in trouble with the neighbors you provided. * What is the power highlighted on your home? In the modern suburban partnerships, if the electricity is connected at the rate of say 10kW at home, often in the house put the gun at 10-12kW, which would avoid a showdown between neighbors. And his unauthorized change, cause serious troubles. For example, in case of fire you can blame the fact that it happened is your fault. * Check the condition of the transformer installed in the village may have to pull some wire for connecting electric boilers. * What are powerful appliances installed at the neighbors, and hit if their total power in that which is reserved for them at home. * Assume all is well How to install an electric boiler, and set convectors. What's more profitable elektorokotel or heaters? Dispute, it is cheaper electric boiler or heaters, this dispute is a series of "it's easier to kilogram or kilogram cast down, as electricity consumption for heating 1 cubic meter oema of electric boilers and heaters is the same, this can be verified by visiting the website of any company that offers boilers and convectors, and hence the amount of electricity bills will be similar.
