INNOVATIONS IN BLAST PROTECTION
The threat of terrorism in Singapore is at an unprecedented high level in recent years. The Infrastructure Protection Act is passed in Oct 2017 and requires Security By Design for Special Building and Infrastructure. There is an imperative for more effective mitigation measures against bomb attacks. The speaker would present blast protection measures and recent innovations.
PARAMETRIC MODELLING FOR FAÇADE AND BUILDING PERFORMANCE
It is well documented that the construction industry has a significant productivity opportunity through the rapid digital disruption and transformation that is currently occurring. An example of this, is utilising digital tools that allow us to undertake parametric modelling in real time to help drive early design decisions, and improve overall design outcomes. In this talk, we explore some of the parametric modelling tools that industry is adopting to allow Façade parameters to be optimised in real time, and how this will impact building performance, benefit the overall design process, and ultimately bring greater value to project outcomes and clients. With an ever increasing accountability on sustainable design, and disclosure of building performance, we need to ensure that we are optimising our value propositions in this space.
HIGH PERFORMANCE STEEL REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURAL FRAMING SYSTEM FOR HEAVY INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS
The current design codes for the composite steel reinforced concrete (SRC) beams and columns are only applicable to normal strength materials. In Eurocode 4, only limited concrete grades C20/25 to C50/60 and steel grades S235 to S460 are allowed to be used, while on the other hand, it is permissible to use much higher strength concrete grade (up to C90/105) in Eurocode 2 and S690 steel grade in Eurocode 3. In this presentation, a design method is proposed to utilize the full strength of the high performance steel grade up to S690 and concrete grade up to C90 for the SRC columns, taking into account the effect of strain-compatibility and lateral confinement. The same high performance steel and concrete grades can also be used to form the SRC beams and together, they formed a new innovative SRC structural framing system which will be very suitable for use in heavy industrial buildings. The key advantage of using such high performance materials is to reduce the size of the structural elements considerably especially for the SRC columns, thereby freeing up valuable floor space as well as to facilitate safer and more productive construction.
EFFECTIVE USE OF DfMA TECHNOLOGY
DfMA technology has been used in Singapore since the early 80s. Since then, the usage has evolved from producing and installing simple precast components to fully assembled prefabricated modules such as PBU (Prefabricated Bathroom unit) and PPVC (Prefabricated Pre-finished Volumetric Construction).
In order to use the technology effectively, there is a need to understand basic design production and installation requirements. This seminar is to share production and installation requirements and to impact some of the key points that need to be considered when using the technology.
3D PRINTED SPACE FRAMES
This lecture tackles Additive Manufacturing as production method for architectural applications. Five projects investigate different aspects of this concept and serve as case studies. While in all projects focus on space frame structures various 3D-printing materials and techniques are studies and different scales, from furniture to big scale installations are achieved, demonstrating the versatility and additivity of 3D-printing as an emergent fabrication method for architecture and structural design.
DESIGN WITH HIGH STRENGTH STEEL SECTION
There appears to be a gradual trend towards the use of higher strength steel in Singapore. 20 Years ago, S275 was the norm, and S355 the exception. Now, S355 is the norm, and higher strength steels are available. The use of high-strength steels in construction can bring about many technological advantages from fabrication to erection. For example, smaller sections made of high-strength steel can enhance space availability, aesthetics, and freedom in design as well. The benefits of high-strength steels combined with economical steelmaking have stimulated a great interest in development of high strength steels.
