All structures are to be supported on sound foundation for their safety and subsequent performance. A good understanding of the pile foundation design principles and construction practices is essential for every practitioner, designer, builder and supervisor involved so that structures will be built and maintained safely throughout the lifetime of the structure. This course aims to provide participants with an insight into the engineering principles of pile foundation design as well as good construction practices adopted locally with special emphasis on cast-in place reinforced concrete bored piles in compression.

SPRING Singapore

12 Apr 2017 to 25 Apr 2017

The seminar will provide updates on the Singapore Standards: SS 626 (a revision of CP 15) and SS 550 Amendment 2.SS 626 covers the safety requirements for escalators and moving walks tosafeguard people and objects against risks of accidents during installation, operation, maintenance and inspection work. It aligns with the current European Standard EN 115:2008 & A1:2010.SS 550 Amendment 2 aligns the operations for emergencies, evacuations and fire lifts to provide consistency and harmonise with the Fire Code.

A good geotechnical monitoring instrumentation system with proper protection, recording and data analysis could avoid catastrophic site incident. These instrumentations play an important role in the safety monitoring especially during the construction stage. The recorded data are also useful for design verification. Therefore, it is of foremost importance that engineers should be equipped with the knowledge on the different functions of geotechnical instrumentations, their installation method and how the readings are taken so that they could better plan and design the system to get their desired data. This course will cover this essential knowledge and also the skill to interpret the readings obtained, the good practices in installation of the instruments and the statutory requirements.

Geographic Information System (GIS) applications are in great demand nowadays due to many of their value-added services. To generate any recommended solution using GIS applications, there must be accurate data collected by the land surveyors. In addition, the development of many new challenging construction and civil engineering projects also requires a higher level of service from the land surveyors.The part-time Diploma in Geo-Spatial Information and Technology which was developed in collaboration with Singapore Institute of Surveyors and Valuers (SISV) offers graduates the integrated domain knowledge of various surveying techniques and GIS applications with the use of latest technology and equipment. This diploma creates a unique opportunity for graduates to venture into different aspects of the surveying services. With this, graduates are able to begin or advance their career further in the surveying and geospatial profession.

Good passive and ventilation design strategies could reduce the dependence of active cooling yet maintaining a good thermal environment. This course promotes the design for thermal comfort with ventilation strategies. Participants are also introduced to the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation software to model airflow in a space and urban environment, so as to analyse the effectiveness of various design options.

Association of Consulting Engineers, Singapore

22 Apr 2017 to 22 Apr 2017

This course is organised to prepare civil, structural and geotechnical engineering practitioners, ground investigation and testing laboratories, builders and supervisory personnel on the design of spread and axially loaded pile foundations particularly to Eurocode 7 in Singapore. The participants will be able to: (1) Appreciate and understand the design approach of foundations based on Eurocode 7 and its National Annexes; (2) Understand the use of Eurocode 7 on design and construction considerations for spread and axially loaded pile foundations; and (3) Understand the execution and testing requirements relating to foundations

Singapore experiences the highest incidence of lightning strikes in the world. These lightning strikes have caused major disruptions to main systems equipment and considerable damage to building structures. Understanding of lightning phenomenon and proper setup of lightning protection system are critical for the protection of lives, properties and equipment. The 2-day course aims to provide participants with an understanding of the effects of lightning and various lightning protection methods for building structures. It will also cover various analytical methods for the performance assessment of lightning protection systems.
