Facing many difficulties, the reconstruction of the Northern California will begin

In October, 2017, a series of wildfires attacked Northern California. The reasons of these fires are the long time high temperature, the longtime drought, the fast population growth and the terrible diablo winds. The maximum wind speed can up to 113 mph, which is much faster than the speed that the firemen put out the fires and the speed that the local inhabitants run away.

The 1km Mersey Gateway Bridge has opened to the public

The 1km Mersey Gateway Bridge is the centerpiece of the construction work across Halton, which lasts more than three and a half years. The Mersey Gateway Bridge connect the towns of Widnes and Runcorn that are near the neck of the Mersey estuary. The total length of this bridge is 2,248m. It is made up of two viaducts on either side of a 1km six-lane-cable-stayed span.


The Depression and Stimulation in The Construction Industry of UK and Austraila

Brexit has not only brought uncertainty to UK politics, but also affected the country's economic development, the depressed growth rate of construction industry is just a typical example. The economic director of UK Construction Products Association said that UK construction output is slowing, and there are signs predict that the construction industry will facing a tough winter next year. On the contrary, Australia's construction industry has advanced by leaps and bounds among this year, infrastructure, commercial buildings and residential buildings growing savagely, making the Australian Performance of Construction Index (PCI) increased by 4.5 points to 60.5 in July 2017, which represents the highest level in 12 years.

Seamless Steel Tube’s Quality Inspection Methods

As self drilling bolt’s raw material, seamless steel tube’s quality must be completely inspected according to product standard and technical specification. Specific inspection includes steel tube’s chemical component analysis, geometric dimension inspection, surface quality inspection, physical and chemical properties inspection, processing property inspection, metallographic analysis, thread inspection and measurement. The purpose is to ensure quality of steel tube and meet relevant standard code or technical condition requirement.


Reason Analysis of Tunnel Deformation

During tunnel construction, deformation often happens. Observing from tunnel surface, there are cracks, shedding phenomenon or underground water dropping appearing. If reason doesn’t get analyzed and maintained timely, worse deformation will happen.

General Requirement of Self Drilling Anchor System’s Inclination

Self drilling anchor system’s inclination should be 15°~25° horizontal downward, no large than 45°. With increase of inclination, horizontal component of self drilling anchor system decreases. Too large inclination will reduce anchoring effect and increase vertical component on supporting structure, which will also cause settlement of retaining structure and surrounding foundation. To use self drilling anchor system’s pulling resistance effectively, self drilling anchor system should parallel with direction of side pressure effect.
