Indeterminacy of Structures | Degree of Static & Kinematic Indeterminacy

A structural system which can be analyzed by using equation of static equilibrium only is called statically determinate structure i.e. reaction components and internal stresses can be calculated using static equilibrium equations only. Eg: Simply supported beam. If it cannot be analyzed by equation of static equilibrium alone, then it is called a statically indeterminate structure. Eg: Fixed beam. A structural system is said to be kinematically indeterminate if the displacement components of its joints cannot be determined by compatibility equation alone. Eg: Simply supported beam. If those unknown quantities can be found by using compatibility equations alone then the structure is called kinematically determinate structure. Eg: Fixed beam. But before calculating the degree of indeterminacy of a structure, it is good to know about its stability. If a structure is unstable, then it doesn't matter whether it is statically determinate or indeterminate. In all cases such types of struc

Before implementation of clean feed, the foreign channels were showing th

As per the present constitution, Nepal has 7 states/provinces & 753 local levels. The new structure divides Nepal into 77 districts & 6,743 wards. The political division of Nepal can be visualized as below: The local levels include metropolises (6), sub metropolises (11), municipalities (276) & gaupalikas (460). 7 States of Nepal Province No 1 Capital: Biratnagar Chief of State: Somnath Adhikari Pyasi Chief Minister: Sherdhan Rai Districts: 14 Local Levels: 137 Metropolises: 1 Sub Metropolises: 2 Municipalities: 46 Gaupalikas: 88 Province no 1 lies in eastern region of Nepal. Its boundary touches both of the neighbouring countries of Nepal i.e. India & China. Mount Everest, the highest peak of the world is located in this state. A

Hydroelectricity in Nepal | Hydropower Projects in Nepal

Hydroelectricity in Nepal | Hydropower Projects in Nepal There are more than 6000 rivers with a total reach length of 45000 km flowing in our country. They occupy about 3.9 % of the total land of Nepal. The snowy mountains & glacier lakes are also our major water resources. This makes Nepal to be the second richest country in water resources after Brazil in the world. Nepal contains 2.27% water of the total water resource in the world. Due to such resources, we have a huge potential of hydropower production which is theoretically found to be 83000 MW. Out of this, 42000 MW of hydroelectricity is feasible economically & technically.

Watershed & Watershed Delineation | Calculating Catchment Area

What is Watershed & Watershed Delineation ? A watershed is all the land & water which contributes runoff to a common point or outlet point. It is also called catchment or drainage area. The terms catchment & watershed are found to be used interchangeably. So, watershed area is the land area, from where all the surface runoff converges to a single point to give common discharge. Watershed delineation thus refers to creating boundary that represents the contributing area for a particular outlet point.
