THE DESIGN OF A FISH POND

ABSTRACTFood is inevitable in ones life and fish is a main source of vitamins and protein in ones life. Fish pond is a place for growing fish for commercial or private needs or gestetic purpose. The design of fish pond is very important because of its aqueous retaining nature which if there is leakage will not only cause loss of water but also loss of lives of fish and plants in it. A adequacy and accuracy is relevant in the design of fish pond. The engineer is bordered with the functions of ...

ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF A RETAINING WALL

ABSTRACTRetaining walls are structures used  in providing stability for earth or materials where conditions this allow the materials from summing its natural slope or stability.There are many factors affecting or militating against the stability of retaining walls. These includes the level of water table behind the wall, size of the base of the wall and nature of the soil retained.Under these effects of he nature of soil. We have the angle of internal content between the particles, the c...
