Secant Pile Wall, Metro Station
 
02:49
Secant Piles Construction Explained Underground Metro Station constructed using Secant Piles A secant pile wall is constructed using intersecting cast in-situ bored piles. Soft Piles do not have reinforcement, are constructed firstly alternatingly. Hard piles that have reinforcement are constructed between and are cut into the soft piles. The secant pile wall forms an underground retaining wall that will support the faces of excavation and hold back the ground water. The Construction sequence for the Secant Piles is:- A concrete guide beam is constructed with curved faces, used to locate the pile drilling positions. The soft piles are bored, bentonite a mixture of water and a special clay is used to support the excavated hole from collapsing and concrete is poured into the bored hole. The hard piles are constructed as the soft piles with a prefabricated reinforcement cage inserted prior to concreting. The Excavation & Propping Sequence for the Secant Piles is:- The reinforcement at the top of the hard piles is exposed and a concrete ground beam is constructed that connects the hard piles. Excavate to below the steel bracing level Install Walers and Struts. Alternatively walers and ground anchors could be used. Excavate to formation Construct reinforced concrete floors and walls. Shown is how a reinforced concrete wall is constructed. The activities are reinforcement fixing, erect shutters, pour and vibrate concrete and remove shutters after the concrete has hardened. Shown is a piling operation and the plant and equipment used

Metro Dubai Route 2020 $2.7bn
 
05:03
Metro Dubai Route 2020 $2.7bn Route 2020 is a proposed extension to the existing Red Line of the Dubai Metro. The extension will be 14.5 km long, 4 km will be through a tunnel and the balance will be on viaducts. Programme This is a graphic representation of a programme that uses motion animation to show the works anticipated progress. Underground Station Underground walls are constructed to hold back the faces of excavation. Either diaphragm walls or secant pile walls are used. Tunnelling A tunnel boring machine excavates and builds the tunnel lining with precast concrete segments. The excavated material is moved out of the tunnel by conveyor belt. Skips of the excavated material are lifted to the surface. Viaduct A launching gantry is used to lift and place the precast concrete segments that form the deck spans. Post-tensioning compresses the segments to form the spans. Demonstration showing how Posttensioning works. Concrete Rock that is blasted free from a quarry face. Crushers and screens crush the blasted rock and separate the aggregates into different size ranges. The aggregates, cement and water is mixed in the concrete Batching yard to form the concrete mix that is delivered to the work site by truck mixers. Shown is the sequence to construct a reinforced concrete wall. Resources & Outputs Histograms that show the resources and outputs over a projects timeline are a useful tool. The Dubai Metro is a driverless and fully automated network. There is a Red Line and a Green Line and plans for further lines.

Vibro Compaction - 3D Visualisation of Construction
 
01:53
Ground Improvement using deep vibro-compaction Includes sequence, methods and equipment. Purpose is to provide protection against liquefaction during a seismic event. Also provide a minimum ground bearing capacity. Using vibro-compaction the sand and gravel particles are rearranged into a more dense state by the combined actions of water flow and vibration. Vibro-compaction was use to compact the Dubai man made islands that were constructed from dredged sand. Work Sequence Set out a triangular grid with a 3 metre spacing using steel pins with a unique number marked label. Pre-treatment C.P.T. that is, cone penetration testing, will be undertaken to access the existing ground strength The vibroflot will be positioned over the compaction point and the bottom water jets and air jets opened to allow flushing. The vibroflot will penetrate into the ground under its own weight using the vibratory effect, assisted by the water flushing. The compaction will be carried out in steps of 0.5 to 1.0m each and the holding time at each step will be up to 60 seconds. As the soil is compacted, a crater will appear at the ground surface, which will be continuously filled with surrounding sand by the attendant loading shovel Post-treatment C.P.T. will be undertaken to assess and monitor the compaction. Load bearing tests will be carried out during the course of the works, using a 2.5m × 2.5m plate loaded to 1.5 times a working load. Equipment Vibroflot with extension tube, hydraulic power packs mounted on crane, diesel engine driven water jetting pumps, compressors, crawler cranes with 60 tonne capacity, water tank, de-watering pump

Dublin Metro Construction Programme
 
02:07
Dublin Metro Construction Programme. Example This film shows an animated programme for the underground part of the proposed Dublin Metro. The work activities, progress is shown against a moving timeline. The underground section of the metro will be through, single-track twin bored tunnels, in rock. The overview is four tunnel boring machines will be used, two moving south and two moving north starting from an underground station half ways along the route. Generally it takes six months to construct an underground station to a stage where a tunnel boring machine can be assembled down in the station or pass through a station. It takes three months to assemble a tunnel boring machine in place. A tunnel boring machine progresses at a rate of 450 metres per month working 24 hours and seven days a week. The construction methods, sequence, plant and equipment are shown using 3D animations, this give a better idea than conventional power point presentations The underground section of the metro is between just north of the Airport and Charlesmont south of Saint Stephens green a distance of 13 kilometres. The expected opening date is 2027. The cost is three billion euros. This short film shows typical construction methods that were used to construct similar light-rail systems. It is useful to see 3D visualisations and animations so the emergency services, stakeholders and the public can get an understanding of the construction process and timeline.

BIM in Construction has Many Uses
 
04:28
Building Information Management or BIM has many uses in Civil Engineering Construction. Presently 3D models are used to coordinate design inputs from the various disciplines. 3D Visualisations and Animations can be included in technical films and PowerPoint presentations and used for the following purposes. Tender Presentations showing how a project will be constructed. Including sequence, methods, plant and timelines. Constructability Studies Knowledge Capture and Sharing Technical & Safety Training Project Familiarisation Trouble Shooting, Brainstorming, and aid for decision making Preparing Method Statements and Safety Risk Assessments Programming and getting commitment from the Site Team Sequencing work activities Organising resources by seeing what plant and manpower is required and when. Proving Delay and Disruption Entitlements Reviewing and recording progress Producing Infographics for Workshops, meetings and conferences. Company Promotional purposes In construction the main problem is turning ideas (i.e. Drawings) into reality. Most people working in construction are Do-ers who are better at walking the walk than talking the talk. Do-ers need to have a mental picture of what has to be built with the sequence, methods and resources required, so they can understand what has to be done and when, effectively create something and solve problems, for this reason visual learning is effective and the best learning style. Another problem in construction is knowledge and know-how gained on construction sites is not captured and shared. Furthermore site staff and workers need to be trained on what to expect when they go onto site and the safety risks and control measures to reduce the probability of injury and accidents. As a way of overcoming the above I make films with 3D Animations, infographics, timelines, photographs and video footage to show how work activities and projects were and are constructed. These projects range from airports, seaports, motorways and railways to oil and gas plants & pipelines, metros, in-sit-u piles, bridge construction, post-tensioning, precast yard, quarry, roofing and more. The films fall into the category of ‘edutainment’ and contain engineering educational value which site members find of great interest. For the past six years, I’ve been working for international construction companies in the Middle East on billion-dollar oil and gas, motorway, sea ports and aviation projects. As part of my work, I was asked to write articles and make PowerPoint presentations showing how it was intended to carry out works containing methods, sequence and the resources. This developed into producing short films containing 3D visualizations & animations, photographs and video footage. The films are used for tender presentations, for supporting contractual claims, as site inductions to familiarise staff and workers with projects, to show progress, to demonstrate construction issues with proposed designs and for company promotional purposes. The films are generally shown at workshops, site meetings, conferences and tender presentations. Recently, for example, I prepared a film for a major international oil and gas company as part of a constructability presentation, showing how a gas-processing plant and pipelines will be constructed that included the resources to be employed and timelines for the various activities. Also 3D Animations can be used for technical and Safety Induction Training to familiarise new employees with projects, also can be used to evaluate and analyse risks and to produce financial and safety risk assessments.

Construction Safety Documents Explained
 
05:08
Description The purpose of this video is to explain the various project documents designed, to make a construction site, a safe and environmentally friendly place to work. Safe System of Work. To provide a safe system of work is a legal requirement. What this means is that before you ask an employee to do a job. You ensure that he has received training, has the appropriate personal protective equipment, the work area is safe and he is unlikely to be injured or cause damage by carrying out the assigned task. Project Management Plan for Health, Safety, Security and Environment. also Known as (HSSE Plan) The Project HSSE Management Plan details how safety on site will be managed. Project Procedures for Health, Safety, Security & Environment Details the safe way to undertake a task Methods Statements Are prepared in advance of starting work, to plan a Safe System of Work on site for all activities that carries a risk. The contents of a Method Statement, typically include:- Scope & Location of the Works, Programme, Roles & Responsibilities of Staff. Resources, Work Methodologies and Risk Assessment. Safety Risk Assessments Are prepared to identify and evaluate risks, to adopt control measures to reduce or eliminate risks. Shown is a Risk assessment for excavation. COSHH Sheet The purpose of the Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health sheet is to identify how to prevent or adequately control workers exposure to hazardous substances. Permit to Work. Is a management system used to control high risk activities by ensuring safety measures are in place prior to starting work. Types of work for which permits will be required include: Excavation and the digging of trenches. Working at height, including on roofs. Working in confined spaces, for example entering a manhole. Hot work, which is welding, soldering or cutting steel with angle grinders or by gas torch.

Rock of Cashel, Buildings Timeline
 
06:02
The Rock of Cashel is a large outcrop of limestone that is surrounded by rich land and is used for dairy, tillage, horse breeding and training. From the Rock there are views of distant hills and mountains. The plateau on which the old buildings and graveyard lie, is surrounded by a wall. The graveyard includes a number of high crosses. The Round Tower was built 917 years ago, in the year 11 hundred. The tower is in a good state of repair. It is 28 metres high. The entrance door is 3.7 metres above ground level. The tower was built using the dry stone method. Some of the stone joints, have been filled with mortar. Cormac’s Chapel was built 883 years ago, in the year 11 34. The Chapel is Romanesque in style and was constructed primarily of sandstone. In recent years restoration and preservation work was carried out in order to completely rain-proof the structure. There are twin towers on either side of the junction between the nave and chancel. The Cathedral was built 747 years ago, in the year 12 70. The great Celtic cathedral was built in the Gothic style and is now a ruin. It has a cruciform plan, with a central tower. The north transept contains late medieval tombs and grave slabs. The Tower House is rectangular in plan and was built 577 years ago, in the year 14 40. The Tower house was a five-story structure and was built as a residence for an archbishop. The Hall of the Vicar’s Choral was built 567 years ago, in the year 14 50. It is a two story building. It was built to house minor clerics who sang during cathedral services. Now it is a museum and ticket office. The roof of the Cathedral was removed 269 years ago, in the year 17 48. There was a partial collapse of the Tower House 169 years ago, in the year 18 48. Scully’s cross was erected 147 years ago, in the year 18 70. This gigantic high cross is a striking monuments and is visible on approaching the Rock. The cross has very fine craft work, with figure sculpture and interlace. It sits on a mausoleum. The top of the cross was broken off by lightning in 1976 and fell to the ground. Restoration and preservation work was carried out in recent years on Cormac’s Chapel. Hore Abbey is nearby. A short drive away is Cahir Castle, Athassel Abbey, Fethard medieval walled town.

Barley Growing, Ireland
 
07:05
Spring barley is Ireland’s most widely grown tillage crop. Ireland’s climate and soils suits barley growth. Barley is used to feed animals and in the production of beer and whiskey. Spring barley is sown in the spring and harvested in the autumn. The ground is ploughed to turn over the top 200mm depth of soil. The plough has four mouldboards that cuts and inverts four furrow slices, any weeds are buried. A reversible plough is turned over by the tractor's hydraulics at the end of the ploughed furrows strip and the next pass is made against the previous ploughed strip. Tilling is used to loosen the soil and prepare a fine seed bed for good seed to soil contact. The soil needs to be dry and warm. Sowing barley seeds, the target average is 300 plants per metre square. The seed drill machine sows the barley seeds at equal distances and depth, ensuring that the seeds are covered with soil and are safe from being eaten by birds. The ground is rolled to provide good contact between the seed and the soil. The soil fertility is managed by, testing the soil to ascertain what elements are lacking for optimum barley growth, spreading fertilisers to provide the missing elements. Soil samples, are taken and tested in a laboratory. A soil auger is used to take the cores. One sample is taken for each 2 to 4 hectare. One soil sample contains 20 cores that measure 100 mm. The locations where the cores were taken is recorded on a map. Fertilisers are spread on the ground that contain mainly the following elements – nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Lime is spread to adjust the ph value of the soil where necessary. Herbicides are sprayed to kill weeds that compete with the crop for light, water and nutrients Insecticides are sprayed to kill insects that are pests Fungicides are sprayed to prevent diseases that reduce both yield quality and quantity. Sound cannons driven by bottled gas are used to scare birds away. The Combine Harvester cuts the mature barley plants at ground level and separates the grain from the straw. The grain is loaded into trailers and transported from the field to a farm yard or a grain mill. The average yield per hectare is about 6 tonnes. The straw is baled and used mainly for bedding. Barley straw can be fed to animals but has a low feeding value. At the mill the grain is tested, cleaned to remove any dust and is stored in silos prior to processing. The grain mill breaks down the grain into small pieces that animals can eat and digest. Barley grain is used primarily as an energy and protein source in animal feeds.

There were 23 hounds in the pack. The hunt crew wear green hunt coats with red collars. Hunting takes place on private land and depends on landowners and farmer’s generosity and goodwill. The hunting season is in the winter during the months of November, December, January and February, when livestock are in farmyards and there aren’t any crops in the fields. There are thoroughbred and sport horse breeding and training farms in the vicinity The day was enjoyed by all, everyone was friendly and went home with a big smile on their faces. The hunt was formed 124 years ago in 1894. The extent of country hunted is from Askeaton in the west to Lough Gur in the east. Ardpatrick in the south to the Tipperary road in the north.

Metro North Dublin Construction
 
03:56
Dublin Metro North is a planned, Light Rail high-capacity System for Dublin that will link Saint Stephen’s Green in the city centre with the Airport and will end north of Swords. The metro will be through, single-track twin bored tunnels, at road level and elevated on a viaduct over the M 50 motorway. The distance between Dublin City Centre and the Airport is 15 km, the journey time will be 19 minutes. The estimated cost is 2.4 billion euros. Twin bored tunnels with cross passages for emergency evacuation is the design. The tunnels will be in rock to avoid ground settlement. This short film shows typical construction methods that were used to construct similar light-rail systems. It is useful to see 3D visualisations and animations so the site team, emergency services, stakeholders and the public can get an understanding of the construction process and timeline.

Metro Station with Diaphragm Walls Construction Method & Sequence
 
01:46
Diaphragm Walls Equipment, Method & Sequence used to build underground Metro station. Includes 3D animations. Film used for planning, organising works, designing temporary works, constructability study, knowledge transfer and safety inductions. Also to prepare risk assessments. In construction the main problem is turning ideas (Drawings) into reality. Most people working in construction are Do-ers who are better at walking the walk than talking the talk. Do-ers need to have a mental picture of what has to be built with the sequence, methods and plant required so they can understand what has to be done, effectively create something and solve problems, for this reason visual learning is effective and the best learning style. Another problem in construction is knowledge and knowhow gained on construction sites is not captured and shared. Furthermore site staff and workers need to be trained on what to expect when they go onto site and the safety risks and control measures to reduce the probability of injury and accidents. As a way of overcoming the above I make films with 3D Animations, infographics, timelines, photographs and video footage to show how work activities and projects were and are constructed. These projects range from airports, seaports, motorways and railways to oil and gas pipelines, metros, in-situ piles, bridge construction, post-tensioning, precast yard, quarry, roofing and more. The films fall into the category of ‘edutainment’ and contain engineering educational value which students find of great interest. For the past six years, I’ve been working for international construction companies in the Middle East on billion-dollar oil and gas and aviation projects. As part of my work, I was asked to write articles and make PowerPoint presentations showing how it was intended to carry out works containing methods, sequence and the resources. This developed into producing short films containing 3D animations, photographs and video footage. The films are used for tender presentations, for supporting contractual claims, as site inductions to familiarise staff and workers with projects, to show progress, to demonstrate construction issues with proposed designs and for promotional purposes. The films are generally shown at workshops, conferences and tender presentations. Recently, for example, I prepared a film for a major international oil and gas company as part of a constructability presentation, showing how a gas-processing plant and pipelines will be constructed that included the resources to be employed and timelines for the various activities. In this digital age, it is possible to make high-definition, bespoke short films using inexpensive cameras and editing software at a low cost. Short films capture clients’ attention instantly and make a lasting impression. I intend to specialize in producing short technical films related to civil engineering construction. Films are most effective in capturing someone’s attention and getting ideas, vision, strategy or messages, across in an effective and interesting way. 3D Animations can be used for the following purposes - tender presentations, planning, organising work, site inductions to familiarise staff and workers with projects, to show progress, illustrate construction issues with proposed designs, to evaluate commercial risk and for promotional purposes. The films can be shown at progress meetings, workshops, conferences and tender presentations. Also 3D Animations can be used for technical and Safety Induction Training to familiarise new employees with projects, also can be used to evaluate risks and to perform financial and safety risk assessments.

Civil Engineering Introduction Part 2
 
14:59
Description This informative construction film shows how various civil engineering projects were constructed and is an innovative way of preserving and sharing knowledge and knowhow gained in the workplace. The film contain photographs, 3D animation, video footage and infographics and is good for engineering educational value. Project activities covered include:- Earthworks, Reinforcement Cutting & Bending Yard Operation, Concrete Airport Slabs, Post Tensioning Bridge Deck, Asphalt Batching Yard, Roof Covering, High Voltage Cable Laying, Fencing, Accommodation Camp Operation and Railway construction. In this digital age it is possible to make films using a smart phone or everyday camera and editing software. Films are an effective way of preserving and passing on knowledge gained on a job and are most effective in capturing someone’s attention and getting ideas, vision, strategy or messages, across in an effective and interesting way. 3D images can be combined with timelines to show how a project is planned to progress or highlight delays caused by outside forces. Information presented by films is far easier to understand and remembered than something written. We are fortunate to have YouTube as a platform for films with large amounts of useful knowledge and knowhow. This information is communicated in an effective and interesting way, which is easily understood and absorbed. Short technical films can be used for Induction Training to familiarise new employees with projects.

Side Saddle Meet at Grove, Fethard - Feb 2018
 
08:03
This video captures the Side Saddle Meet which took place in the Grove Estate outside Fethard on Saturday 17th February 2018. The horses and ponies were unboxed along the avenue. Side saddle attire was worn by some of the lady riders. The meeting point was in the farmyard that contains many old and interesting buildings and features. Refreshments were offered to the riders and followers. The Grove House and Estate is a parkland estate with mature deciduous trees scattered throughout. There is a long sweeping avenue. The river Clashhawley flows through the estate. The rich grazing land was waterlogged after a wet winter and the river was in flood. The day was dry and bright. Visibility was good for taking photographs and video footage. There was a large turnout of riders, followers and spectators. The riders were mainly farmers and their children. Ladies riders came from all over Ireland, the United Kingdom and America. The pack consisted of Modern English Foxhounds that are well-known for their toughness and their speed. The Side saddle allows a rider to sit aside rather than astride. Both legs of the rider are on the same side of the horse. Only one stirrup is used. The saddle has two pommels. The rider’s right leg goes around the upright pommel. The rider places her left leg beneath the lower pommel, with the top of her thigh lightly touching it, and places her left foot in a single stirrup on that side. Side Saddle riding has made a revival in recent years. Hunting takes place on private land and depends on farmer’s generosity and goodwill. The hunting season is in the winter months of November, December, January and February, when livestock are in farmyards and there aren’t any crops in the fields. The day was a success and enjoyed by all.
