Your world is filled with structures that have stood the test of time. That give character to the cities and landscapes in which they’re located. That are visited by millions of people each year. And that capture our wonder for the marvels of engineering innovation and progress.
But while structures such as the Giza pyramids, Brunelleschi’s dome, and the Brooklyn Bridge are visual spectacles in and of themselves, they are just as important for the way they were designed as for the way they look. These and other structural masterpieces were, first and foremost, novel creations born from the most progressive engineering concepts and tools of their day. They represent uniquely effective solutions to perplexing structural concerns. And they serve as landmark moments in the millennia-long history
Now, experience the engineering genius that makes these works possible with Understanding the World’s Greatest Structures: Science and Innovation from Antiquity to Modernity—a marvelous learning experience that takes you around the world and reveals the stories behind the most famous bridges, churches, skyscrapers, towers, and other structures from thousands of years of history. Delivered by award-winning Professor Stephen Continue reading
In low-rise housing construction technology, “Canada house” (wooden frame and panel construction) is recognized as the most economical, energy-saving, fast, durable and environmentally friendly.
SIP technology in the West
M & a technology (which is derived from the SIP — Structural Insulated Panels — structural insulated panels), the proposed “M-Pro Representative” SIP technology in Odessa is:
serviced warranty – 10 years (lifespan of over 100 years);
a huge margin of safety (seismic 9 points);
the speed of construction (ready-made house 100 square meters for two months);
lightweight construction that does not require lifting equipment and high costs for the Foundation of the device;
allows you to apply all kinds of interior and exterior decoration;
and, of course, the price that is definitely lower in comparison with other technologies of construction. (Approximate prices for the construction of house are given below) Continue reading
In northwestern Yakutia in the Upper Vilyui river stretches difficult terrain with traces of some grandiose cataclysms: a continuous fall of the old forest, and scattered all around rubble stretching for hundreds of kilometers. On this terrain deep under the ground are unknown metal objects. Their presence is manifested on the surface only spots bizarre vegetation, and these spots are a great danger to people. The ancient name of the area – Eluu Cherkekh (“death Valley”).
Some mysterious objects in the area are found on the surface.
One of them is a small, slightly flattened metal arch, which has some metal chambers in which even in the bitter cold warm. In ancient times, some hunters spent the night in the cells, but then got sick really bad. If spent several nights in a row, then soon died.
The elders forbade the people to go there, and this place was forgotten. Another mysterious object discovered by a geologist in 1936, is a protruding from the earth smooth metal hemisphere with a very smooth edge.
Metal color – reddish, the wall thickness is about two centimeters.
Dug hemisphere slightly inclined, and it is possible to enter riding on reindeer. Continue reading
