Academic Year 2018-19 B.E. Projects


Stabilization of Black Cotton soil using Terrazyme


This project establishes criteria for improving engineering properties of soils used for pavement base courses, sub-base courses, sub-grades by the use of additives which are mixed into the soil to affect the desired improvement. The long-term performance of any construction project depends on the soundness of the underlying soils. Unstable soils are always a trencher and can create significant problems for pavements or structures. Indeed, the structural strength of stabilized soils can be factored into pavement designs. Stabilizers can be used to treat soils to varying degrees, depending upon the objective. Population of the country is increasing day by day. While the above development in public transport sector was taking place, the development in private transport was at a much faster rate mainly because of its advantages like accessibility, privacy, flexibility, convenience and comfort. This led to the increase in vehicular traffic especially in private transport network. Various advanced and cost-effective construction technologies are used. Developments of new equipment’s help in the faster construction of roads. Many easily and locally available materials are tested in the laboratories and then implemented on roads for making economical and durable pavements.

Landslide zonation mapping


Landslide is sudden downward movement of rock or soil mass movement on slope with or without true sliding. This sudden movement of slope forming material causes extensive damaged to life and property. The present study area malshej ghat in district pune is prone to landslides and has been affected by landslides during the past several years. In this study an attempt has been made to prepare the landslide hazards zonation maps based on remote sensing and geographical information system techniques (GIS). Using GIS techniques, thematic layer like lithology, geological structures, slope morphology, geomorphology for deriving the land slide hazards zone. The weightage rating systems were used for different classes of thematic layers which are based on relative importance of various causative factors. The landslide hazards zonation map prepared in the present study will be useful for carring out mitigation programmes as well as for planning and implementation of future developmental schemes within study area.

Feasibility and design of Verical waste water treatment plant


Disposal of untreated sewage from households as well as institutions & industry is causing deterioration of water bodies in urban areas in the developing world. Sewage treatment is process of removing contaminants from water by adopting physical, chemical and biological process. Sewage can be treated close to where it created which may be called a “Decentralized” or “On Site” System. It is helpful in reducing cost of collection, transportation and pumping to Municipal treatment plant. But due to rapid development, urbanization, migration of people the residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and recreational area takes the most of place in Pune (Katraj Sahakar Nagar Swargate Shivajinagar etc) due to availability of land is major problem in Pune city. Number of sewage treatment plant present in Pune city not sufficient to treat amount of sewage created but now a day it is very essential to do Effective treatment for sewage. As a part of smart city sewage treatment is very essential component, study work will helpful to achieve goal of smart city. Therefore vertical treatment plant is the alternative of the all problems. It requires less space, low operating cost, also the high reduction of BOD, suspended solids and pathogens. Due to gravity operation it is low in cost and easy to maintain.

Covering and laying of mild steel pipes for water supply system


Now a days the cost for construction of any structure is booming tremendously so to compensate the cost of project the number of new methods and innovative techniques are used, voided slab is also one of them. Voided slab is nothing but a slab in which some excess concrete is replaced with any other material which should be beneficial for construction and effective for cost. Waste plastic which have less cost as well as less weight so voided slab using waste plastic can attempts the negative attributes of solid slab by lightening them without any structural disability. The U boot slab discusses the various structural behavior of voided slab or u boot slab and their structural benefits over traditional concrete slab. U boot slab is a method of virtually eliminating all concrete from the middle of a floor slab, which is not performing any structural function, thereby dramatically reducing structural dead weight. High density polyethylene U boot replace the ineffective concrete in the center of slab, thus decreasing the dead weight and increasing the efficiency of the floor. By introducing the gaps leads to a 30 to 40 % lighter slab which reduces the loads on the columns, walls and foundation, and of course of the entire building

Reuse of sludge produced by waste water treatment plant in brick manufacturing


The treatment of water normally generates a great amount of waste in the form of sludge which is generally discharged in to nearest watercourse. Disposing the sludge may be economically good but it is not environmentally suitable method. When the sludge is disposed into the streams, it pollutes the downstream water and water become undesirable for the human consumption. Disposing water treatment sludge leads to accumulative rise of aluminum concentration in water and human bodies. Using water treatment sludge in brick manufacturing can be an alternative environment friendly solution which not only solve the disposal problem of the water treatment sludge but also reduce consumption of clay.

Analysis and design of Industrial shed by using Cold Rolled Form Section (CRFS)


“Design of industrial shed by using CRFS at Vashi Maharashtra ,India “, deals with the study design and analysis of industrial shed by using CRFS .In this project comparision is carried out between two industrial shed of same size in which one shed of CRFS and other is HRFS , with the help of manual calculations and by using STADD-PRO software. The analysis and design of shed is carried out and different properties of CRFS by using Excel program. Test will be carried out on structural members i.e beams for different cross sectional area . The flexural test will be carried out on the beam (3 point bending test). The sections used are C-section, T-section, deck sheet, box-section , Z-section with lip. The tests are carried out on the above sections of different sizes.

Smog Eating Concrete


Pollution is one of the biggest concerns of the world right now. As our population increases, more roads are needed to get people from one place to another. Unfortunately, by adding more cars on the road, there is a higher concentration of air pollution. The only way to reduce that pollution is to encourage people to take eco-friendly forms of transportation, such as bikes or car pooling. But with 9 billion people on Earth, it’s not very likely that many people will actually take those forms of transportation.The problem in many cities is that vehicle exhausts emit nitrogen oxides, which cause acid rain and smog that damages not only human health and quality of life but also the fabric of buildings.The aim of project to decide the best proportion of Titanium dioxide in the concrete which will filter the air to the max limit and will purify the air.contains Titanium dioxide in addition to the conventional ingredients. Titanium dioxide is already commonly used to coat surfaces that are hard to clean -- it is a component in some paints -- because it functions as a self-cleaning chemical, meaning the new concrete has the additional advantage that it breaks down algae and dirt so its surface stays clean.

Sustainable dividers for roadwork


Plastic waste is silent threat to the environment and their disposal is a serious issue for waste management. Now a day society does not have any alternative to plastic products like plastic bags, plastic bottles, and plastic sheets etc. In spite of all efforts made to limit its use but unfortunately its utility is increasing day by day. To circumvent this issue many efforts were made in the past to reuse the plastic waste but no significant results were achieved. On contrary concrete being the widely used construction material is facing problem due to unavailability of construction material (Cement, sand and coarse aggregate). Various attempts were made through experimentation to check the feasibility of plastic waste to be use partially in concrete with respect to various properties of strength, workability, durability and ductility of concrete. This paper includes review of various studies conducted on utility of waste plastic material used in the concrete. Moreover this paper will draw our focus toward the impingement on the various properties of concrete when partially replacing with waste plastic.

Bacterial Concrete


Due to low tensile strength, cracks are common phenomena of concrete, through which transport of harmful substances causes early deterioration of concrete structure. Bacterial concrete is a prominent solution for the cracks. Subtilis bacteria increases the compressive strength of standard grade concrete up to about 15% at 28 days, and also shows a significant improvement in split tensile strength compared to conventional concrete. It can be observed by use of bacterial concrete, the compressive and tensile strength of concrete was increased substantially which gives a better form of concrete structures that are more durable in nature. Thus the project emphasis on the concept of preparing a bacterial based concrete that can help to resolve the problem of cracking economically without use of destructive method to enhance durability of concrete structures.

Container housing for slum rehabilitation


Considering today's increasing population and resulting rise in construction, there is a heavy demand for construction materials. In the aftermath of rampant exploitation of resources available naturally as well as synthetically, the need for incorporation of sustainability in every possible area of construction has been recognised. Keeping in line with that ideology, an alternative to traditional concrete houses must be found. With increase in the population of cities, the area occupied by the slums has risen in the fringes. this project aims to find a sustainable solution to rehabilitate slum dwellers in much more organised and habitable environment. This can be done through houses made from shipping containers. These containers are made from steel and can be customized to meet the structural needs with minimal efforts. With the help of market survey, market quotations and technical survey, the feasibility analysis of the Container Homes shall be carried out. As per current findings, shipping container houses satisfy not only the structural needs but also the financial aspect of the project. Shipping Container Homes cost less than conventional homes.

Sewage Sludge concrete


The project evaluates the use of dry sludge ash as an additive in construction material like concrete. The aims to determine the percentage of sludge ash addition reduces compressive strength of concrete. The concrete specimens were subjected to different additions of sludge ash in percentage and 20% fly ash constant as replacement of cement in order to evaluate the compressive strength and compare them with the reference concrete (not containing sludge ash and fly ash).Concrete was tested for workability, compressive strength and flexural strength. In the review of utilization of that waste, this study reviews various proportion of sludge usage in concrete cubes and beam. Thus compressive strength of concrete is calculated and compared with the standard proportion concrete. This review is an approach on whether sewage sludge ash can be utilised for concreting work. And with this study maximum disposal of sewage sludge ash can be achieved with its maximum utilisation in concrete.

Road accident Analysis of Kondhawa road


The project of “Accident Analysis And Black Spot Identification For Kondhwa Area Traffic Road ”, deals with the study of Accidents occurs on roads. Transportation contributes to the economic, industrial, social & cultural development of any country. Transport is most important because it enables to trade between people, which is essential for the development o civilization. Road transport means transportation of good and personal from one place to other o roads. The importance of roads in a vast country like Indian can scarcely be exaggerated. A system well design, well constructed and maintained roads are essential for the countries economic and cultural progress. The roads also have to play a vital role in the defense of our country. National highways are considered as main veins for the development of country.

Low cost waste management system for KJEI campus


The liquid waste generated in the KJEI campus is treated in STP plant but requires high cost and solid waste is not treated. The aim of this project is to study the characteristic of waste generated in KJEI’s Campus and provide a low cost waste management technique’s so that the treatment can be economical. The methodology for the wastewater would be Pythorid Treatment or Construction Wet Land. According to their initial cost and for the solid waste treatment Vermi-Composting Technique is to be applied. The expected conclusion of this project is that use of these treatments will be a lot economical and beneficial as compared to present treatments. It has reduced the cost of the material, leading to the conclusion that is to provide highly productive solution for waste management as well as cost economy.

Analysis of concrete by partial rplacement of foundry sand and GGBS


Generation of waste foundry sand as byproduct of metal casting industries causes environmental problems because of its improper disposal. Thus, its usage in building material, construction and in other fields is essential for reduction of environmental problems. In this project the behavior of concrete will assure by partially replacing the crushed sand with foundry sand. The experimental work is mainly concern with the study of properties like compressive strength, workability of concrete by partial replacement of foundry sand as fine aggregate and GGBS as cement. Foundry sand will replace with four percentages (0%, 30%, 40% & 50%) of Waste Foundry Sand by weight and GGBS will replace with 40% by constant weight (As per past research paper). The tests would conduct for the above replacements of foundry sand and GGBS for M30 Grade concrete. Compression test will carry out to evaluate the strength properties of concrete at the age of 7, 14 & 28 days.

Covering and laying of mild steel pipes for water supply system


In conventional concrete, micro-cracks develop before structure is loaded because of drying shrinkage and other causes of volume change. Due to development of such micro-cracks, it results in inelastic deformation in concrete. Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is cementing concrete reinforced mixture with more or less randomly distributed small Fibers. In the FRC, a number of small Steel Fibers are dispersed and distributed randomly in the concrete at the time of mixing, and thus improve concrete properties in all directions. FRC is cement based composite material that has been developed in recent years. It has been successfully used in construction with its excellent flexural-tensile strength, resistance to spitting, impact resistance and excellent permeability and frost resistance. These fibers have many benefits. Steel fibers can improve the structural strength to reduce in the heavy steel reinforcement requirement. Polypropylene and Nylon fibers are used to improve the impact resistance. Many developments have been made in the fiber reinforced concrete.ely.

The remedial measures for reduction of losses in existing canal system


Irrigation is defined as the process of artificially supplying water to soil for raising crops. It is science of planning and designing an efficient, low cost, economic irrigation system tailored to fit natural condition. India is basically an agricultural country and all its resources depends upon the agricultural output. Water is mostly the vital element in the plant life. In order to get maximum yield it is essential to supply optimum quantity of water, and to maintain correct timing water. This is possible only through systematic irrigation system.
