With increasing numbers of building & infrastructural as well as industrial assets located in close proximity to, and even within aqueous or marine environments, protection of materials of construction, particularly steel and other metals, against corrosion is of great importance. The seminar will address the developments in the understanding of galvanic corrosion, and the various methods and procedures necessary for achieving corrosion protection, with particular emphasis on cathodic protection.

Portable fire extinguishers can be real life savers as they can be used both at home and the workplace. This seminar will provide an update on the latest SS 578 : 2019 Code of practice for the use and maintenance of portable fire extinguishers. Portable fire extinguishers are regulated fire safety products and compliance with the requirements in the SS 578 is necessary as stipulated in the Fire Code. SS 578 covers the requirements for selection, installation, inspection, testing and maintenance of portable fire extinguishers. It defines comprehensive requirements for selecting and using the appropriate type of extinguishers for various classes of fires.(CPD units)SCDF - 5 CPD / PEs & CEngs - 3 PDU

The specific objective of Module 2 on Earth Retaining Structures is to familiarize participants with various types of earth retaining structures adopted in Singapore and the region. This module is useful to those who are involved in the construction and supervision of earth retaining structures used in civil engineering and building projects.

Collapse is every engineers worst nightmare. Fortunately, not every engineer must go through the experience of a collapse first- hand as we can all learn from the mistakes of others. This course aims to impart knowledge by way of sharing examples of structural engineering failures so engineers can learn how not to repeat such mistakes. It will also cover the relevant areas of SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures, with reference to structural engineering failures

Formwork structures have always been a highly hazardous item inthe construction industry. Continuing failures of formworks inSingapore have raised considerable alarm in the industry, thegovernment and the public.To address these concerns, and to update an outdated Code ofPractice for formwork, a Workgroup was formed in 2012 to developa new Code of Practice, SS580.This one-day course on formwork design and safety to revisedstandards and EuroCode aims to accomplish the following: Provide background material to and useful information onimproved standards in this area for this critical topic inworkplace safety; Present the basics of safe design of formwork structures andessential design requirements of SS580; Describe significant parts of the new Code of Practice forFormwork SS580:2012 to facilitate its use by designers andconstructors; Review a number of failure of formworks in Singapore andabroad to convey an understanding of causes; Discuss techniques to identify and evaluate the hazards, andmanage the risks; and, Offer practical guidelines for good practice in formworkdesign, erection, use, dismantling, inspection, andsupervision.The focus will be on basic concepts and procedures currently in usefor formwork in the construction industry.Objectives will include identification of principal contributory factors to formwork failures and their underlying rootcauses, and discussing how the new Code can eliminate or alleviate the problems.

Structural steel is still in demand for their high quality and productivity while stainless steel and aluminium has appealing qualities leading to an increasing use in the Construction Industry. Participantswill have a better understanding on various corrosion methods on structural steellike hot dip galvanising, anti-corrosion paint & coating. Issues related to inspection, maintenance and repair of steel structures will also be discussed.

This course is intended to assist participants to prepare for the Institution of Structural Engineers Chartered Membership Examination (CME), in accordance with the Institution's guidelines.6 PDU (confirmed) over 2 lessons

This course covers topics rarely covered to any great extentat undergraduate level. The emphasis is on hand-based methods. They can be used directly for design, or for the checking of computer-based designs. The course provide an alternate design method of equal difficulty to conventional procedures; it will be found that many problems can be tackled surprisingly easily using these powerful methods. The methods are an aid to understanding. Many work examples are presented showing how the various methods can be used. The emphasis is on the use of the methods for practical problem solving.
