How is math used in building construction technology? How is math used in Drafing?
Please note that building construction technology vs drafting are different jobs with in the same field. I want to know how is math used in both types of jobs???
Question answered by Entang Suratman
To construct a building you have to calculate the strength of the material. You have to determine the size of beams depends on the length of it and specific strength of the beam. Than you can leave the math behind. Drafting does not use math if the drafter does not involved in building design and some one else does the calculation.

What is the difference between Autocad Inventor and Revit, specifically in building construction?
I believe that revit is more building construction based. Are the actually systems similar?
Question answered by not so fly
I am in the construction industry, and have used AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit, though I primarily use AutoCAD.
AutoCAD is a drafting software designed to put ideas onto paper
Inventor and Revit are design software, and their purpose is to help you design a product.
The strength of inventor and Revit is that when you make a design change, all related components automatically shift with the new dimension. They are not as powerful as AutoCAD is at displaying and showcasing ideas in a plot format.
Inventor's primary focus is on mechanical objects, and it does it very well. I do not think of it as construction industry software. Revit's focus is on buildings, and in a few years, will do that very well. It is powerful, but young software.

1.Prepare a deteiled schedule of ALL construction activities
2.Find the most critical path ie; the activity which can throw your schedules in chaos
3 Monitor material consumption norms & wastages
4 Monitor deliveries of supplies to site
5. Hve a damn good store keeper so things are not lost & you dont waste time looking for stuff
6 Obtain daily reports & weekly reports of concluded tasks & tsks behind schedules
7. Ensure perfect co-ordination between various agencies
8.You cannot do any of this with out building a damn good rpport with ALL PEOPLE
9 If you cannot find solutions to peoples problems then you are ineffective.
10 The correct statement of a problem is 90% of the solution
11 you dont have to know everything if u dont understand a term immediately ask for its meaning never mind the scepticism by & by people will know that you fully understand what you say & what they are talking about.
12 Hold co-ordination & schedule monitoring meetings. Circulate the agenda before hand & dont allow anybody to leave the room till the agenda is complete even if it goes till 3 am
13Be in the office at 9.00 sharp the next morning
14 Remember that delays result in cost escalation but that is peanuts compared to the percieved loss in profits had the plant been up & running by the target date.

construction is a ticket to law suites. so i recommend law for professional engineers by Marston. construction is not an easy business. u should leave it to the architect and professional engineers.

Survey the block of land, dig the footing, and trenching for utilities such as telephone/internet conduits, toilets, sewer, water drains, electrical conduits. Then there is a pecking order as to when you can get on site? You as an IT person, will lease with the building supervisor. telstra or contractor will do the lead in cable to the building MDF, to provide for the whole building incase you have tennants etc. I hope that is what you want?

Question answered by Andrew P
I won't give you the answer, but will get you on the right track. You can take a look at a resource like Wikipedia (see link below) for information on some of the factors that helped fuel the fire.
1) Lack of urban planning, with narrow, winding and overcrowded alleyways (makes it easy for fire to spread and hard to get people in the right places to put them out)
2) Widespread use of wood and thatch as building materials throughout most of the city, although it had been banned.
3) Construction of foundries, smithies, etc which were a fire hazard in banned in the city, but still existed in close quarters
4) Construction of "jetties" which were upper floors built on top of existing structures which "jetted" or protruded out over the street. When two jetties were across the street from each other, they practically touched, resulting in much easier spread of fire.
5) Combustible materials all over the streets, alleys, and cellars, including "tarr, pitch, hemp, rosen, and flax"
So now you have a sense of some of the construction practices which helped spread the fire, you can do an analysis on what steps might have been taken to prevent a similar disaster and compare that against the creation and enforcement of actual regulations.
