詳情 :

The provision of infrastructure projects not only involves huge amount of capital on a short-term basis, it also connects to their long-term impact, and onward operation needs and maintenance. In the presentation emphasis is placed on the application of monitoring techniques to provide sustainable engineering solutions for two types of engineering structures, namely foundations and railways. 


The first part focuses on the design and construction of foundation structures for high-rises with huge imposed loadings. With the introduction of bi-directional testing and the use of full-scale geotechnical instrumentation for monitoring soil-structure interaction, the results obtained from instrumented tests has allowed better appraisal of the load transfer characteristics and load bearing capacity. Recent cases in the Asia-Pacific Region about reviewing of foundation design demonstrate that more efficient and economic design of foundation structures and their testing can be achieved. 


Robust and timely rail asset data is essential for effective decision-making in the management of rail infrastructure. Traditionally, track measurements are undertaken by surveyors who work on and near the track and are exposed to the dangers of live railways whilst doing so. Conventional surveys are often restricted to night time working in short possession periods. Innovative suite of train-borne monitoring systems is developed to measure the track and rail corridor in a fast and efficient manner, designed to keep trains moving safely, without interruption to services whilst keeping survey personnel away from the track.
