Tuesday, January 22

                                                            AR -221 Design-IV  

Study of natural environmental factors, their impact and consideration by human settlements of  a town  on  a  part of a city.  Especially  on housing forms, open spaces, their activities and  construction  methods  including  energy  efficient   structures.  Emphasis  on   the   following attitudes  is  important :- Detailed  study  of  one  or  more  of  the  following  aspects - climatic considerations and relationship with life  style.  Emphsis  on  Consideration  of  constructional details,  basic  details  of  services  like  kitchen,  toilets  etc.  and site  planning  of the scheme. Design problems with   natural   and   man   made   parameters   dealing   with    independent  bunglows,  farm  houses,  combined  units,  duplex  type  their cluster  or  grouping  etc.  along with  relevent  Building  codes.
There should be minimum one time problem of 12 hrs. duration apart from regular design  problems in the  studio.

                                                     AR-222 Building Construction-III

1. Shoring.
2. Industrial steel floor (fire proof), jack Arch roofing, stone slab roofing, stone stairs, stone floor on
3. Steel roofs-types.
4. Precast components (C.B.R.I.)
5. Design & construction details of domestic furniture in timber & hollow tube sections, slab flooring,
stone    stairs.

                                                             AR -223 Climatology

1. Introduction to the elements of climate and its types with reference to tropical climate and site
2. Vernacular techniques of shelter design as per climatic regions (Rural and Urban).
3. Principles of thermal design and control, ventilation and air movement  illumination and day  lighting,
response to climate by man and building.
4. Elements of architecture design with climate by using different prediction tools and design  aids.
5. Study of building materials and construction techniques of energy efficient building design for tropical

                                                          AR -224 History of Arch-III

This  course  is  studied  in  order  to  see  how  builders  in  the  past  solved  their  structural,
functional  and aesthetic problems. This survey of history gives the student a chance to  study the
structural  basis  of  great  styles,  methods  of   admitting  daylight,   for   decoration,   for planning
and so on, as related to structure.  Importance is also  attached  to  the  sociological  background  i.e.
political,  economic,   religious,  technical  and  philosophic  ideas  and  ideals which  lie  behind  all
This  will  be  studied  with  the  help  of  selected  samples of  buildings  under  the various historical
civilizations of Indian and the oriental in general, in chronological order.
 Pre-Gupta Architecture i.e. upto 3rd cen.A.D.
1. Gupta, Chalukayan, Indo Aryan.
2. Dravidian & Rajput  Architecture i.e. upto 11th cen.A.D.
3. Medieval Hindu & Jain architecture.
4. Indo-Islamic architecture.
 Rajput palaces.
5. Colonial Architecture in India.

                                                              AR -225 Structure-IV

(1)  Introduction to R.C.C., Working Stress method, Limit State method
(2)  Design of Beams :- analysis of beams, design of singly, doubly reinforced beam, T-beam, L-beam, (cantilever and  simply supported ) lintel, chhajjas
(3)   Design of Slabs :- analysis of slabs, design of One way, Two way, Continuous, Cantilever Slabs (simply supported and continuous)
(4)  Design of Columns:- axially loaded, columns with Uni-axial and Bi-axial bending
(5)   Design of Staircases :- dog-legged, and open well only
Note:   Sessional work should include the analysis of simple elements along with the drawings.

                                                            AR- 226 Survey  and Leveling

1. Aspects of surveying for the Architect. Surveying instruments classification by function. Useful data and formulae, basics of Mensuration.
2. Scales-Plain scale, diagonal scale, comparative scale, shrunk scale, vernier scale.
3. Study, test, degree of accuracy, use and care of surveying instruments and accessories.
4. Site survey techniques: Chain surveying, compass surveying, plain table, theodolite.
5. Leveling and contouring, Topographic Survey.
