Recently construction sites had started using Prefabricated Prefi nished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) in building construction to improve productivity. The components used in PPVC are much heavier and bulky. To lift such components using cranes, the crane operators need to handle the components (loads) more carefully and position them accurately at specifi ed location points mostly with the help of signalmens walkie-talkie communications as the crane operators are unable to see the locations points due to large size of the PPVC components.

Precast concrete technology had been identified as one of the key areas of focus to improve productivity in the construction industry. It has been observed that there is more room for a greater adoption of this technology in Singapore. Good site management practices and planning of precast concrete construction activities such as on-site/off-site casting of precast members, transportation of the members to site, erection and construction considerations would contribute to more efficient, less labour intensive and faster construction. This would eventually lead to better construction productivity. This workshop provides construction managers with practical knowledge in the planning, execution and control of precast concrete construction. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to plan and manage precast concrete construction site activities effectively.

The Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) of SPRING Singapore, with the support of Geotechnical Society of Singapore (GeoSS), Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) has introduced an accreditation scheme for site investigation firms. As part of the accreditation requirements for site investigation firms, site investigation supervisors of the firms are required to undergo a training course on site investigation. Upon successfully completing the course, they can be registered as Certified Site Investigation Supervisor with GeoSS.

Computational BIM approach enables professionals from the built industry to explore and automate more design options leading to desired solution for productivity gain. The design approach also makes the creation of complex geometry possible and accurate. This 2-day workshop covers the practical applications, modelling workflow and integration of model with BIM software to enhance the design process. Participants will be equipped with practical computational BIM skills and technical knowledge through the hands-on sessions. Industry practitioners will also be invited to share on their experience in adopting computational BIM in their projects or workflws.

Institution of Engineers, Singapore

24 Apr 2019 to 24 Apr 2019

This Engineering/ Technical Event is organised by IES Aerospace Engineering Technical Committee (AETC).

Speaker: Associate Professor Dr. Liu Erjia, School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, College of Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU)

Cold spray is attracting increasing interest as a coating, repair and additive manufacturing process across a large number of industry sectors. Recent advances in equipment, coupled with novel approaches to the manufacturing and metallurgy of the materials employed in cold spray are encouraging the development of load bearing applications for AI, Fe, Ni and Ti alloy components.

Coatings and surface engineering: addressing the needs of industry

Water repellence; lightning conduction; increased abrasion resistance all properties which can be imparted to a material through the use of coatings and surface engineering.

Aerospace

The complex castings made of difficult-to-weld alloys used in aircraft structures can easily suffer superficial damage, either during their production as a result of casting defects or mismachining, or during service as a result of wear and corrosion.

Alongside surface engineering for repairs, the aerospace sector also needs durable anti-icing and anti-fouling coatings, improved bulk materials for aircraft leading edges, thermally resistant coatings and advanced composite materials for aircraft pipelines.

Construction & Built Environment

The construction industry is always seeking improved ways to repel moisture, limit the impact of fouling and preserve dimensional stability, appearance and insulation performance.

Against a backdrop of economic uncertainties, many on-going projects run the risk of going into disputes, claims, delay and disruption.Loss and Expense claim is one of the cost claims that are likely to be encountered by contracting parties of a construction project.

Lean Construction techniques aim to improve processes through waste minimisation. A synergy of Lean Construction and Building Information Modelling (BIM) will certainly have a profound impact on productivity and hence profitability. In this workshop, Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) is introduced as the combination of 4D BIM and lean construction management to achieve optimization of the construction schedule for continuous flow of construction process and better planning in construction management.
