Venue: Digital Platform
Date & Time: 25 Mar 2023 (9:00 AM - 1:00 PM) Closed
CPD: 4
Closing Date Before: 22-Mar-2023 (Subject to change based on availability of seat)
Organised By Graduates & Student - The Young Engineers Section (YES)

SYNOPSIS

Soil stabilisation is a technique that refines and improves the engineering properties of soils. When geogrids are combined with aggregates, it forms a Mechanically Stabilised Layer (MSL). It is based on the principle that granular particles confine and interlock effectively within the geogrid apertures. The application of MSL is proven to reduce costs and the environmental impact of the subgrade improvement as well.

Hence, this technical talk aims to help engineers understand the following:

1.    Fundamentals of mechanically stabilised soil
2.    Confinement (Stabilisation) vs Tensioned Membrane Effect (Reinforcement)
3.    Performance Preview
4.    Applications of Mechanically Stabilised Layer (MSL)
5.    Case Studies


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Civil engineers, project management personnel, and any person involved in designing and managing any project in the construction industry.


BIODATA OF SPEAKER

Ir. Lau Joe Jiunn
(B.Eng. Hons., P.Eng., MIEM)
Design Manager for Tensar International Limited

Ir. Lau Joe Jiunn, received his Bachelor of Engineering with Honours BEng (Hons) First Class Honours from the University of Putra Malaysia. He is a registered Professional Engineer with BEM and a corporate member of IEM. Upon graduation, he worked as a Geotechnical Engineer. He was actively involved in the design and project management of some major highways, factories, and low-rise and high-rise residential developments. He deals with various geotechnical works, including shallow and deep foundations, deep excavations and retaining structures, slope stability analyses, and ground improvement works. He also has overseas experience in Shan Dong province in China, where he served as an independent checker for ground improvement works and oversaw overall project management. Ir Lau is also actively involved in finite element analysis, including 3D modelling with Plaxis 3D and Midas GTS NX, to simulate representative cases and provide competence advice. Currently, Ir. Lau serves as the Design Manager for Tensar International Limited, responsible for the APAC region.


Limited to 93 participants only (first come basis) and confirmation email will be sent for successful registration latest by 24 March 2023 @ 5.00 PM
