Who Knows.

Thambi the towel head mason had informed the Civil Engineer that the soil was lose and he needed instructions on how deep the foundation should go for the building planned.The Civil Engineer needed information on the type of soil,it's properties and the load it could take.All this needed a expert in such a situation and they were not the type you could find easily.Their consultation costs was not considered in his fee.He therefore needed to inform my friend this unexpected who knows situation had cropped up from his ignorance.

My friend a software engineer and his friend were getting ready to go over to the place of their dream hose under construction,when they saw their Civil Engineer on his Scooty getting down near their home.Wondering what the hell he was here for when he was supposed to meet them at their site,they welcomed him and after few pleasantries were exchanged the the Civil Engineer told them about the Who Knows problem of lose soil and the unexpected expenses that would come up for making a deep foundation and the extra consultation fee of the Geo technical Engineer who had to be called for soil investigation.There was a big argument as to why this was not looked into and who was responsible etc,etc...finally it was decided to meet this Geo technical Engineer who came and solved the problem.

The problem was solved by use of Geo Textile Fabric made of Polypropylene a Technical Textile Fabric.The cost of foundation was twice that of the estimate for the foundation.My friend's wife wanted to know what he would have done if the Technical Textile Fabric a new thing for the present generation was not available and what was done in good old days.The Geo technical Engineer explained that in good old days it was Coir fiber fabric that was used.Geo textiles is now used in many areas such as: Landscape Architecture,Roads,Airfields,Canals,Dams,Reservoirs,Embankments,Coastal preservation and any area needing soil erosion control.

technical textile fabrics made of glass fiber and carbon fiber are in use woven with sensors in euro countries to help detect earth quakes and other information on buildings saving lives of people in detecting earth quakes before lives are lost.
