Structural Concrete Design to Eurocode 2

Dates: 17 - 18 September 2014

This 2-day programme is aimed at providing the participants with the knowledge and skill in designing concrete structures to Eurocode 2 (EC2) provisions. The programme covers the basis of design, design for action effects, structural detailing, design for second-order effects in compressive members, and design using strut-and-tie models. It would be of interest to both practicing engineers and academic members in Singapore and the neighbouring countries, where the Eurocodes are replacing the British Standards in design practices.

Valorization of Low-Value Biomass in the Palm Oil Production

Dates: 29, 30 September to 1 October 2014

Palm trees represent for Asia a great value for the production of palm-oil. This industry has a great position in the economy of countries such as Malaysia and neighbouring countries. Today, besides the production of oil, little industrial use is made of kernel cakes and of residual biomass from tree replacements that produces large amounts of under-used biomass that have a large potential and could find industrial application in several fields.

Forensics Engineering for Civil, Structural and Geotechnical Engineers - Technical and Legal Issues

Dates: 4 - 6 November 2014

Construction failures often led to litigation process which could have serious consequences for developers, consultants, contractors and individuals in terms of structural rehabilitation and loss of business or life. Successful diagnosing of cause of failures, assessing its consequences, and presenting the findings convincingly are important to this process. Investigation of such failure will provide necessary lessons to be learned by construction professionals so that recurrence of such failures could be eliminated or minimized.
