Bangladeshi Architect Created Tallest Buildings In The World

 Fazlur Rahman Khan, a Bangladeshi architect, created some of Chicago's tallest buildings, which are also among the world's tallest. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the Bangladeshi civil engineer who subsequently became a US citizen was known for his inventions in high-rise building construction and is known as the "father of tubular designs." Buildings may be made much higher and stronger thanks to his innovations.

Fazlur Rahman came up with his inventions of tubular designs that strengthened the strength of the structures while playing with ideas to develop skyscrapers that were taller than ever before. The bundled tube was one of Khan's most notable variations of the tube construction idea, and it was utilised for the 1,451-foot Sears Tower (now known as Willis Tower), which was the world's tallest skyscraper for 25 years before being surpassed.

Fazlur Rahman pioneered the "bundled tube" structural method, in which a collection of small steel cylinders are grouped together to produce a thicker column, at the iconic Sears Tower. 

The One Magnificent Mile building in Chicago and the 1,128-foot-high John Hancock Center were both constructed along the same lines. Shock-absorbing buildings were designed by Khan and Mark Fintel to guard against severe earthquakes.

Global Rare Earth Supply Chains Diversify Away from China

In response to the rising global demand for rare earths critical for producing everything from electric vehicles to wind turbines, supply chains are undergoing a significant realignment away from China. Historically dominant in rare earth production, China's recent policies and geopolitical tensions have prompted Western nations and other stakeholders to seek alternative sources and bolster local capabilities. Rare earth processing involves two essential stages: initial extraction and subsequent refining into individual oxide compounds used to manufacture magnets essential in various industri..

Coal India, US Firm to Explore Argentine Lithium

State-run Coal India Ltd is collaborating with a US company to explore lithium blocks in Argentina, a critical step in securing supplies of the essential battery material, according to an Indian source with direct knowledge of the matter. This initiative is part of India's participation in the US-led Minerals Security Partnership (MSP), which New Delhi joined last year to ensure a steady supply of minerals necessary to meet its zero-carbon objectives. As part of the MSP, India was invited to engage in 20-25 critical minerals projects, with four already identified by the Indian government. Indi..

India's Coal Consumption Set to Surge Amid Hydroelectricity Shortfall

Amid a significant drop in hydroelectricity production caused by inadequate rainfall, India is gearing up to increase its coal consumption to satisfy rising power demands, according to S&P Global Commodity Insights. This shortfall in hydroelectric power is anticipated to perpetuate India's reliance on coal imports. During the fiscal year 2023-24, India's coal production approached the 1 billion metric ton milestone, reflecting the government's strategy to lessen dependency on imported coal. Nonetheless, the country has already imported approximately 85 million metric tons of thermal coal in 20..
