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raised considerable alarm in the industry, thegovernment and the public.To address these concerns, and to update an outdated Code ofPractice for formwork, a Workgroup was formed in 2012 to developa new Code of Practice, SS580.This one-day course on formwork design and safety to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.

This is a course detailing the fundamentals of process safety and safety case. The topics covered include technical safety, major hazards assessment, the Workplace Safety & Health (Major Hazard Installation) Regulations, safety case, process safety management and an industry learning journey (to the Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore).Safety case is a newly introduced regime in Singapore. Professional Engineers (Chemical) from diverse operational backgrounds may not have the specialised knowledge on the elements and requirements of safety case, as well as important process safety aspects in chemical plant operations.

With the rapid global infrastructure development, there is a new focus on sustainable usage of concrete. Using supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) like silica fume, pulverized fuel ash or ground granulated blast furnace slag to replace or compliment cement is one practical area to achieve sustainability which is gaining importance. Stakeholders in construction industry (Owners, Architects, Engineers, Resident Technical Officers, Site Supervisors etc) are handling more demanding and complex projects in current development projects and may involve working with SCM. This programme aims to provide information on the nature of these SCM and the resulting properties of concrete batched using such materials to participants to allow them to better execute their projects.

The professional course on erosion control will lead to accreditation of professional engineers as Qualified Erosion Control Professionals (QECPs).The duties and responsibilities of a QECP include designing erosion and sedimentation control measures in construction sites and preparing plans. Submission plans to PUB shall be submitted by a registered QECP.

The Certicate in Faade Inspection course is designed to equip participants with essential knowledge and skills in faade inspection. On top of legislative framework and requirements on faade inspection, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of various faade systems and materials, their particular maintenance needs and inspection methods.

Contractors and builders would have to face the Authorities and even the media when such incidents take place. On site, project owners and contractors look to the contract and particularly the insurance coverage for compensation. This one day course will be ideal for professional engineers, construction engineers, project managers, Consultants and other project team members who may wish to expand their technical knowledge of this specialised contract and site safety element
