LAST CALL, REGISTRATION BY 20 JUL 2015!Course Synopsis With EuroCode implementation and the new Singapore Standards SS EN 206-1 (Concrete Specification, performance, production and conformity) and SS 544 (Concrete Complementary Singapore Standard to SS EN 206-1), method for specifying concrete has been changed from previous Singapore Standards SS289. This seminar will introduce the concepts and requirements for specifying different types of concrete. Sustainability in the construction industry will remain a pipe-dream unless design for specified durable service life is the basis for all future construction. The presentation will also emphasise the durability and sustainability factor when specifying concrete. This course also explains the requirements on identity tests for indicating whether the defined volume of concrete under review belongs to the same population as that verified as confirming.CPD: 7 PDUs qualified by PE Board; 6 STUs (for RE & RTO)

Course SynopsisThe Building and Construction Authority has introduced the Euro codes as Singapores building code on 1 April 2015. With our origin and extensive network in Europe, VSL would like to share with our valued industry partners our work experience designing to the Euro codes. Post-tensioned concrete design in building works will be discussed and worked examples illustrated, where appropriate. ObjectivesDesign specifics, detailing of post-tensioning works and relevant hard wares to comply with Euro codes will be high-lighted. An example of a warehouse floor design comparing BS 8110 & EC2 will be briefly discussed.The SpeakersEr. Max Meyer, Group Technical Officer VSL InternationalCPD: 3 PDUs qualified by PE Board

BCA has adopted the Eurocodes, one of the world's most advanced and established building codes as the prescribed building codes for structural design with effect from 1st April 2015. To assist the industry to have a better understanding and a more effective use of these codes, this one day seminar aims to cover two essential codes SS EN1990 and SS EN1991 which are necessary for structural design and construction regardless of types of material used. The head code SS EN 1990: Basic of Structural Design establishes the principles and requirements for Safety, Serviceability and Durability of structures. SS EN 1991 Eurocode 1 : Actions on Structures is on the design provisions for dead loads, imposed loads, wind actions, thermal actions, accidental actions etc. Work examples will be used to illustrate some of the applications. Significant adjustments/difference between the Eurocodes and the British Standards will also be highlighted.
