INTRODUCTION:

Pavement Management System (PMS) is a system which defines the identification of optimum strategies at various management levels and maintains pavements at an adequate level of serviceability. It provides a framework to organize and carry out activities needed to provide, operate and maintain pavements throughout the life-cycle. The basic objective is to achieve the best possible value for the public funds in order to provide safe, comfortable, efficient and economic transportation system. This can only be accomplished by comparing investment alternatives, coordinating design, construction, maintenance and evaluation activities, and making efficient use of existing practices and knowledge to provide maximum satisfaction to the Road Users. It provides a good platform for planning, execution and maintenance of the Pavements.

INTRODUCTION:

Housing is the most important infrastructure without which survival of the humanity would be miserable. In India, the population has been growing with a remarkable percentage growth in urban population. It is very difficult to find vacant lands to fulfill the unlimited demand of houses, particularly in urban areas. Vertical expansion seems to be a prospective solution to solve this problem. The public and private sector are playing very important role in providing housing by way of constructing tall buildings, i.e high rise buildings to provide a large floor area in a relatively small land area to maximize the optimum utilization of lands in urban centers. Hence it is evident that the human aspiration to build increasingly tall structures are inherent from the ancient times baring examples of pyramids of Giza, Egypt – Mayan temples of Mexico, Qutub Minar of India. The lateral stability of the structure is most important in addition to the strength, serviceability, human comfort, ductility in design requirements duly integrating architecture with structural design as a complex one. It is essential for everyone involved in construction industry to understand the sequence and programme of planning, construction and issues involved in maintaining the structures to full fill the designed life of structure.

INTRODUCTION:

Civil Engineering Material testing includes a wide range of applications requiring the determination of both chemical properties and physical properties like strength, size and shape of the materials used in the Construction activities. To keep a high level of structural safety, durability and performance of the infrastructure, an efficient system for early and regular structural assessment is urgently required. The quality assurance during and after the construction of new structures, after reconstruction processes, the characterization of material properties and damage as a function of time and environmental influences is becoming a serious concern. Raw materials are never consistent, construction and manufacturing processes are never perfect, and structural requirements constantly change with new applications, designs, and desired functionality. For these reasons, field and laboratory structural analysis, engineering design and testing will continue as long as there is a need for structural engineering. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view of the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Testing of Civil Engineering Materials” from 24 – 27 July, 2018.

INTRODUCTION

Infrastructure development has taken rapid strides in the country. Huge investments are being made both in the Government and Private Sector. Government of India and all State Governments have embarked upon construction projects in all segments like Irrigation, Housing, Airports, Railways, Power stations etc. One of the paramount needs in the projects is the quality management. The Stakeholders in the process include owners, Contractors consultants and financers. All the segments in construction industry need to focus attention on the technology, project management and quality in construction. Each one of the stakeholder shall look forward to establishing and managing quality systems in the building construction. Quality Management enables the organizations and individuals to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency in the construction activities. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view of the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Quality Management in Building Construction” from 06 – 10 August, 2018.

INTRODUCTION

Majority of the structures built with materials/cement and exposed to weathering conditions are bound to show signs of distress in the form of cracks or deflections during some stage of it’s life. Cement by virtue of it’s physical and chemical properties is prone to cracking. Most of the cracking is on a microscopic scale and doesn’t appear visibly. The cracking can also be macroscopic and can result in loss of strength, stability, and durability. One of the very important aspects of the structure is dampness/leakage. Dampness or leakage indicates the permeability of the structure. Lack of Durability of RCC Structure is another agonizing concern, especially in coastal areas. It reduces both life and serviceability of the structure. There are a number of causes which create dampness and leakages in a structure due to different attributes. In this context, knowledge of basic causes of cracking, their extent and severity is essential in choosing suitable preventive and repair material, otherwise, the repair may turn out to be redundant. Hence waterproofing techniques for buildings in which dampness/leakages existing are to be adopted with a standard and approved systems and materials The new generation of construction/waterproofing chemicals are derived from synthetic resins, rubber, and silicon basis. Suitable solutions can be derived from a vide spectrum of products during construction stages as well as during post-construction/ maintenance stages. The introduction of suitable waterproofing process takes care of probable – moisture / thermal movement and atmospheric corrosion aspects. It is essential for everyone involved in the construction and maintenance of structures to understand the intricacies involved in leakages of the structures and to know the latest trends in managing the issues by waterproofing treatments. This programme on “Leakages and Water Proofing Treatment in Buildings” aims to address the issues involved in “Causes of Leakages and Remedial Measures by Water Proofing Treatments”.

INTRODUCTION

The sustained economic growth in recent years in India has brought opportunities and challenges to the planning and management of the Indian transportation system. Though India has one of the largest road networks in the world, the available road infrastructure and public transport services in the metropolitan cities are highly inadequate for achieving faster movement of commuters in comparison with the situation prevalent in the cities of the developed world. By 2025, approximately 60% of the global population and more than 4.6 billion people will live in Urban areas. In 2050, 80% of the world’s population could live in major metropolitan areas. Technology and mobility are two concerns that will monopolize the conversation about how society can help provide a high-quality life to billions of people. Intelligent Transport System (ITS) is at the heart of us that keeps safe in our city’s roads and tunnel systems. For the safe and efficient movement of people and goods on roadways, Traffic Management uses Engineering and ITS techniques for the issues we all face with regards to transport and mobility which are too complex to be tackled alone. It is in this context, ESCI is organizing a 5-day programme on “Intelligent Transportation System and Traffic Management” for the management of facilities for any mode of transportation for the safe, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods.

INTRODUCTION

Ground improvement, in a broad sense, is the change of any property of soil and treatment of ground so that the soil strata may be strengthened/improved to serve better for engineering applications. Variety of ground improvement techniques involving the physical, mechanical and/or chemical processes have been successfully implemented all over the world to overcome the problems caused by the treacherous sub-grade/foundation soils. Methods such as Preloading, Plastic Vertical Drains (PVDs), Stone Columns/Granular Piles, Vibro-techniques, Compaction Piling, Grouting, Heavy Tamping, etc. would be described and analysed. Methods appropriate for expansive soils would also be covered.
