About

15th in the series since 1989 and one of the prominent international built environment technical events held in Malaysia.

This biennial international conference on concrete engineering and technology, 15th in the series since 1989 is one of the prominent international built environment technical events held in Malaysia, attracting speakers and audiences from across the globe.

Since inception, this conference has been jointly organised by;
- The Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (lead organiser for CONCET2020)
- University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
- Universiti Teknologi MARA, Shah Alam, Malaysia


Innovation and Resilience in Concrete Construction

CONCET2020 will cover fresh perspectives and the latest in the wider topic of innovation and a more specific topic of resilience, in concrete construction

Innovation Innovation is a wide concept of exploring, creating, changing and adopting. With the pace of change and development seen within Malaysia, the ASEAN region and globally, there is an increasing pressure for industry professionals to meet the demands for better and faster. This in return requires the knowledge of the latest and current, which the conference will explore

Resilience The resilience design institute defines resilience as the capacity to adapt to changing conditions and to maintain or regain functionality and vitality in the face of stress or disturbance. It is the capacity to bounce back after a disturbance or interruption. With this term in mind, the conference will explore advancements in concrete engineering and technology with regards to use of concrete in resilient design in construction, focusing in particular on sustainability, safety and durability

▪ New-generation concrete materials
▪ Recycled materials and by-products in concrete
▪ Modular and prefabricated construction
▪ Advanced structures and infrastructure

MONDAY 20 JULY
DURABILITY OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES – MECHANISMS, ASSESSMENT METHODS AND ENSURING DURABLE STRUCTURES


Despite numerous reported cases of failure of concrete structures, the durability of concrete is still compromised due to lack of clarity on: the causes of deterioration, interactions between different factors causing the deterioration and the mechanisms themselves, methods of assessing the susceptibility of deterioration as well as the causes and extent of deterioration; and ensuring its performance in the exposure environment. As a consequence, the current situation in most developed countries is that repair and rehabilitation costs of structures far exceed the total budget for capital development programmes. Therefore, an important consideration for the design and construction of durable concrete structures should be to ensure that exposure classes are appropriately identified/specified, concrete is specified and designed for the intended exposure regime, design and construction techniques are suitable for the expected performance, and measures are introduced for monitoring their performance in the service environment during their life so that any deviation from the anticipated performance could be identified in a timely manner and appropriate repair and rehabilitation measures are taken. In addition to dealing with most of the above topics, this workshop will introduce the concept of performance-based specifications for ensuring the durability of concrete structures and a strategy for performance testing using both in-situ test techniques and sensors embedded in concrete


SESSIONS

- Mechanisms of deterioration of concrete
- Methods of identifying and quantifying the deterioration
- Durability designs
- Methods of improving the durability

THURSDAY 23 JULY
EARTHQUAKE ENGINEERING AND FLOOR VIBRATIONS


This workshop aims to cover fundamentals of structural dynamics and applications in design for earthquakes and floor vibrations. It introduces the principles of dynamics and simplification of structures into single and multi-degree of freedom systems and their response to excitation which form the basis of many design codes

The section on earthquake engineering provides an introduction to plate tectonics, earthquake design philosophy and typical damage types from past earthquakes. The different methods for calculating earthquake actions will be discussed with specific focus on the force based approach which is used in various design standards around the world. Key design factors such as soil amplification, structural ductility and detailing will be covered with a specific focus on concrete structures. Finally, the displacement based method as an alternative to the force based approach for earthquake design and analysis will be introduced

The section on floor vibrations focuses on human induced vibrations especially walking. Explanations of design assumptions and acceptance criteria will be provided. Considerations for prediction of maximum floor vibration will be highlighted to show the limitations and features of various tools. Rectification measures for in-service problematic floors will be covered including the use of passive floor dampers. Specific requirements for sensitive floors such as for hospitals and labs will be highlighted


SESSIONS

Structural dynamics Single degree and multi degree of freedom systems; Earthquake excitation and response including response spectra; Periodic and impulsive dynamic excitation and response.

Introduction to earthquakes Inter-plate and intra-plate earthquakes; Earthquake scales, hazard maps, soil effects; Building response and damage from past earthquakes.
