Certification Course in Design of Precast Concrete Structures for Engineers

Event code: 77062

BCA’s International Panel of Experts (IPE) for Construction Productivity and Prefabrication Technology has identified Precast and Prefabrication as one of the key focus areas to improve the productivity in the construction industry. It has been observed that there is indeed more room for the greater adoption of precast technology in Singapore. While our industry gears towards increased adoption of precast concrete technology, it is necessary to build up the capability of the precast industry’s workforce in the areas of design, construction, management and other relevant areas.

Objective

Structural design of precast concrete structures is significantly different from the design of cast-in-situ structures. The difference lies in the structural continuity of individual precast concrete components that are connected by a number of joints. The connections act as bridging links between the components. Hence structural engineers who design precast concrete structures should have a good understanding of the behavior and design principles of connections to ensure stability and safety of the structure.

Organised by the BCA Academy, this course will address the structural design issues of precast concrete technology. It also aims to train the practitioners on the practical design of precast concrete structures in an interactive manner.

This course will be taught by precast industry specialists who have vast experience in the design of precast concrete structures. The Housing Development Board (HDB) will also share a case-study on the design of a tall precast residential building. The application of building information modeling for precast concrete structures will also be demonstrated.

Target Audience

• Practising Engineers
