Track 10: Metal Fabrication
Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by bending, cutting and assembling processes. It is an esteem included process that includes the production of machines, parts, and structures from different crude materials. A fab shop will offer on work, typically in view of the designing illustrations, and if granted the agreement will manufacture the item. Expensive fab shops will utilize a large number of significant worth included procedures in a single plant or office including welding, cutting, framing and machining. These extensive fab shops offer extra an incentive to their clients by constraining the requirement for obtaining faculty to find various sellers for various administrations. Metal creation occupations as a rule begin with shop illustrations including exact estimations, at that point move to the manufacture stage lastly to the establishment of the last undertaking.
Track 11: Design of Special Structures
Strengthened cement is a composite material in which concretes for the most part low inflexibility and pliability are killed by the consolidation of stronghold having higher versatility or adaptability. The fortification is typically, however not really, Steel strengthening bars (rebar) and is generally implanted latently in the solid before the solid sets. Fortifying plans are by and large intended to oppose malleable worries specifically districts of the solid that may cause unsuitable breaking and additionally auxiliary disappointment. Present day strengthened cement can contain fluctuated fortifying materials made of Steel, polymers or substitute composite material in conjunction with rebar or not. Strengthened cement may likewise be for all time worried (in pressure), in order to enhance the conduct of the last structure under working burdens. In the United States, the most widely recognized strategies for doing this are known as pre-tensioning and post-tensioning.
Track 12: Design Quality
Quality Assurance and Quality Control are extremely important aspects of any engineering or construction project without which successful completion of the project can’t be imagined. Quality Assurance includes all those quality parameters or guidelines that would ensure that a project or a product meets its planned or targeted quality by its stakeholders or the producers. All the documents providing quality parameters or guidelines for that purpose are part of the quality domain and are called QA documents.
Track 13: Advanced Construction Materials
With the rapid growth of technology, it has been found that measures have been applied at its best to rebuild or recompose the materials such that it can be more efficient and durable with respect to the previous material and also should be economical. Topics such as pollution and other related area have initiated to make a change in the chemical properties too.
Track 14: Smart Structures
Smart Structures offers the possibility to bout the circumstances for more than one optimal state thereby encircling functionality. Smart Structures are adept of distinguishing stimuli, replying to it, and relapsing to its original state after the stimuli are removed. Smart structures can resist usual misfortunes. Many distinct erections such as metals, tiles or polymers cannot satisfy all the needed technological demands. Therefore, there is an ongoing search for the new materials with the very newest, and especially improvised properties.
Track 15: Structural Designing
A Structure can be defined as a figure which can resist the practical load without substantial distortions. Civil engineering structures are created to serve some specific function like human habitation, transportation, bridges, storages etc.in a safe and economical way. It is concerned with the planning, designing and the construction of the structure. Structure Analysis involves the determination of the force and displacements of the structure or components of a structure.
Track 16: Concrete Structures
Design of Reinforced concrete structures is a basic design course in Building Material Engineering as well as for Civil Engineering. In this topic, basic elements governed by bending, shear, axial forces or combination of them are identified and are considered as building blocks of the whole structure.
Track 17: Modern Construction Systems and techniques
Building materials account for 60% to 70% of the house construction cost in most developing countries of the world. Any economy in the cost of materials will go a long way in cutting down the overall construction costs which have risen sharply during the last few years. The increase in backlog of housing, both in the rural and urban areas of the country, coupled with limited resources available with the government, makes it very necessary to have a close look at the performance of the traditional as well as new building materials developed. Though materials technology has made rapid advances in the past few years, engineers looking upon the availability of building materials for low-cost housing have only a limited choice from the most common, traditional building materials such as soil, brick, stone, lime, gypsum, timber, concrete and steel.
Track 18: Urban Planning & Design
Urban Planning can be described as a professional field concerned with the political and technical process of addressing people’s health and welfare in urban areas by controlling the use of land and designing the urban environment, such as transportation, natural environment and communication networks for the general good of the community. Performing site inspection and surveys, evaluating development and re-development plan for projects, assisting developers in obtaining permits, preparing plan charts etc. are the main motives for the construction management and also for the civil engineers in the urban planning and designing.
Track 19: Sanitary & Ground Water Engineering
Sanitary engineering is the application of engineering methods to improve the sanitation of human communities, primarily by providing the removal and disposal of human waste, and in addition to the supply of safe potable water. Generally, sanitary engineers work for municipalities and are highly trained professionals with a diverse range of engineering skills. Some are involved with a specific area of concern such as waste collection or the maintenance of wastewater facilities and stormwater drainage systems within a district.
Track 20: Road & Railway Engineering
Railway Engineering is a professional field in Transportation and Civil Engineering. Railways are extremely complex and expensive systems which are wholly planned for the effective passage of trains to transport people, freight and equipment. The incredibly advanced trains which use these rail networks are expensive vehicles and so a Railway Engineer is faced with different challenges to a Highway Engineer. Railway Engineers holds mechanical design services and knowledge of force methods that allow them to design train vessels. Railway Engineers are frequently on site, either supervising the rail system or in a ‘hands-on’ capacity.
Track 21: Bridge & Tunnel Engineering
The method is used to build the span and its physical obstacles without concluding the system beneath such as a bulk of water, valley, or road, for the determination of providing route over the obstacle. Tunneling is an alternative pathway excavated through the adjacent soil, earthwork, rock and enclosed except for entry and exit, commonly at each ends.
Track 22: Construction Management
Proper Management plays a vital role in each and every individual construction activity from the inception stage. It will be a challenging task to plan, monitor, construct and execute the project at various levels. The manager will be the most responsible and crucial person to perform all the activities effectively within a specified time duration without compromising the quality aspect of the construction. Improper management, cheap construction techniques, poor quality construction materials, improper coordination among the people, unskilled manpower leads to the natural failure of any minor and mega level projects. Sometimes a small error in any stage of construction might cause the collapse of structure naturally
Track 23: Design For Deconstruction
The ultimate goal of the design for deconstruction is to end the life of the building and also to minimize the construction of raw materials. This method implies to renovate the building materials and find ways to reuse them in other projects. By this system, the overall environmental impact can be reduced.
Track 24: Human Factors In Technology Development And Use
Human factors in design refer to the aesthetic products that influence the design of the system and the environment. Understanding the relationship between people, objects and their environment is very important when human factors are to be considered in the design
Track 25: Engineering disasters
Shortcuts in engineering design can cause to engineering disasters. Engineering is the science and technology used to fulfill the needs and demands of society. These demands include buildings, aircraft, vessels, and computer software. In order to meet society’s demands, the creation of newer technology and infrastructure must be met efficiently and cost-effectively. To accomplish this, the managers and engineers must have a mutual approach to the specified demand at hand. This can lead to shortcuts in engineering design to reduce the cost of construction and fabrication. These shortcuts can lead to unexpected design failure.
Track 26: Building Planning and Drawing
planning is the way of thinking the exercises required to accomplish a fashionable objective. It includes the creation and upkeep of an arrangement, for example, mental viewpoints that require applied abilities.
Many different types of drawing can be used during the process of designing and constructing buildings
On building projects, it is common for changes to be made during construction because of circumstances that emerge on site.
Assembly drawings can be used to represent items that consist of more than one component.
Block plans usually show the siting of a project in relation to Ordnance Survey Maps.
Working drawings or construction drawings provide dimensioned, graphical information that can be used; by a contractor to construct the works, or by suppliers to fabricate components of the works or to assemble or install components.
