PROJECT NAME:- IMPLEMENTATION OF PLASTIC METHOD FOR ANALYSIS OF STEEL FRAME ON A FIXED FRAME
Below written is the career episode of the project which I completed as a requirement of the degree of Bachelor of Civil Engineering from the Latvia University of Agriculture Jelgava, Latvia.It was the final year project and completed in four months starting from February 2011 to June 2011. As per the rules and regulations of the university, I was instructed to perform all the project related tasks within the premises of the university. This project was intended to apply all the engineering principles and laws that were taught in different theoretical courses. This was a group project which involved two other members as well. I completed this project under the supervision of Mr…. who is also the head of the Department of Civil Engineering.
- Identification of problems in the design of a rigid frame
- Implementation of the elastic solution with respect to the equilibrium and conditions of continuity
- To address and highlight the shortcoming in the previous studies
This project proved that the factors that are responsible for the ultimate load on a portal frame with a fixed and rigid frame include geometrical dimensions of the frame,the load of wind, and gravitational force. It is calculated that the frames which are higher in length and which include a large number of horizontal loads, the capability to carry the load is conventionally developed as a result of combined mechanism. However, in the case where a relatively smaller amount of horizontal load is involved and the height of frame is also comparatively less, the mechanism is developed as by a frame that has a beam in it. Moreover, it will also require a plastic hinge for middle span and two plastic hinges for the corners.

Career Episode 2
PROJECT TITLE: ANALYSIS OF DYNAMIC EFFECTS CAUSED BY INTERACTION BETWEEN VEHICLE AND BRIDGE
Under-discussion episodeis about the project which I completed as a partial requirement for the degree of Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering at Latvia University of Agriculture Jelgava, Latvia. This project lasted for four months starting from ….. 20.. to …. 20 … According to the rules and regulations of the university I was bound to perform all the tasks regarding the project within the premises of the university. The main objective of this project was to apply all the engineering principles that were taught in the theoretical courses. I completed this along with three other group members under the supervision of Mr. …… As it was a group project, I was designated as the team lead by the supervisor.
- Identification of the implementation method to be applied
- Planning and designing a number of test series for the integrity of the system
- Implementation of the devised system on different platforms
From this project, I was able to conclude that the dynamic response of a bridge is greatly affected by the condition of the surface of the carriageway. The value of DAF is expressively increased by the motion of heavy vehicles and deteriorated surfaces of bridges. Hence, the process of deterioration accelerated. I found out that there is a correlation in regular occurrence and the DAF values for higher natural frequency values.

Career Episode 3
PROJECT TITLE: OPTIMUM DESIGN OF TANKS FOR SEASONAL THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE
The aforementioned is the career episode about the project which I completed as a semester project during my degree of Bachelor in Civil Engineering at Latvia University of Agriculture Jelgava, Latvia. The project started in …. 20.. and ended in …. 20… This project was assigned to us as it intended to implement all the engineering laws and principles that were taught in the theoretical courses. As I was selected as the leader of the group, it was my responsibility to maintain the progress of the project and performance of the other members. I completed this project under the supervision of Mr…..
- Using energy accumulation for the removal of peaking power problem
- Providing efficient ways to lower the construction costs for energy accumulation
- Implementation of steel liner on the inner side of the tank
- Implementation of multi-objective optimization to obtain design methods
I developed a logical technique that can be used for the phenomena of thermal buckling when a holder is lined with a shell made of steel. Based on optimization of multiple objects, I derived the methods of designs that are ideal for calculating most favorable weight. They can also be used for the buckling system of the shell which varies with the variation in the temperature. I used the fasteners to restrict the shell with the foundational structure with the circumference alongside circular displacement. These calculations also ensure a rise in safety limits for clasping in any geometry.
