Lasers: A Revolution in Highway Engineerin

Image
Introduction: - The advancement of new technology has been taking place since the beginning of human history. However, it has been exceptionally fast and changing the engineering world in recent decades at a record pace. One such technology, lasers, is used in highway engineering for various purposes like road profiling, pavement surface redirection, bridge deflection, speed checkers, accident spot analysis etc. These laser techniques have greater accuracy as everything is automated with faster data collection and less human involvement. Applications: - Road Profiling The profile of a path is calculated around some in-existent line or point which is permanent. Besides the rutting and the other issues, the profile of a path which is taken along a lateral line shows over the altitude and crown of the route outline. The longitudinal profile displays the ruggedness, hardness, and grade of the material. It is used for tracking the status of a pavement management system road network (PMS) ne

Mr. AYUSH PRASAD KASAR     Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it.  ~ Henry Ford     Getting an “on-campus” core job may seem like a “next to impossible” task for many, but it may not be the reality for a true aspiring individual. CEST club in association with ICE UK- NIT Rourkela chapter brings you an encouraging conversation with Mr.  Ayush  (from the batch of 2021) who has been a “near to perfect” example of patience, hard work and dedication.  Due to his perseverance and continuous efforts, he   got placed in  GAIL. His journey may become the blue print for all those who are aiming to be placed on-campus in core engineering companies.       Enlighten us about your life before joining NIT Rourkela.     I was born in  Rajnandgaon  in Chhattisgarh. I did my schooling from Nursery to the fifth standard in Bal  Bharti  Public School. Due to my parent’s continuous effort to help me in my studies from the beginning, I  secured good marks in
