INTRODUCTION:

To keep a high level of structural safety, durability, and performance of the infrastructure in each country, 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. In this age of computer modeling and analysis, one might begin to think that structural testing of engineering designs. Tabulated data on material properties, limits of failure, safety factors, and other pertinent information already exist, so why bother with the trouble and expense of performing actual tests? Aren’t field testing laboratories for construction and civil engineering getting outdated? No. 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, and materials engineering and testing will continue for 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 “Destructive & Non Destructive Testing Methods for Civil Engineering Structures” from 23 - 26 April 2019.

INTRODUCTION:

e-Procurement is an innovative method of processing procurement through electronic media. The procurement is done by inviting tenders, receiving bids, and evaluating the bids online. All the activities connected with the procurement are performed online, using electronic media. Some of the states like Andhra Pradesh have introduced e-procurement to bring in healthy competition, greater transparency in procurement methods. It was first introduced, in the public works department to streamline the tendering process, and later extended to all departments. Now it is also implemented in few other States, like Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and many other States are also planning to introduce e-procurement. It is observed that e-procurement leads to very healthy competition resulting in highly competitive bids, besides transparency. With this background, ESCI is organizing this training programme on e-procurement, to familiarize the practising professionals with the principles & methodology of e-procurement.

INTRODUCTION

Contract Management is one of the vital components in any Project needs adequate attention. Because of the involvement of several stakeholders, different types of contracts and conditions have made this task more complex. The projects are being subjected to time and cost overruns because of continuous issues and disputes arising in the projects. Courts are flooded with cases and it is taking a long time to settle these disputes. Disputes lead to enormous loss to the entrepreneurs as well as the clients. In this scenario, it is necessary to understand, minimize and resolve these disputes. Proper Contract Documentation and Management reduce the burden of claims. World Bank Conditions, FIDIC and other forms of Contracts have been levying penalties for delay in completion and paying Bonus for early completion. Project Management is invariably taking all steps for effective Contract Management. The old forms of contracts are getting replaced with modern formats such as Build Own Transfer Family Contracts, Turnkey Contracts, EPC Contracts, Build and Design etc. The practising professionals shall be familiar with the new mechanisms/techniques, so as to manage projects in the present scenario. It is in this context, ESCI is organizing a 5-day training programme on “Contract Management & Dispute Resolution in Engineering Projects”.

INTRODUCTION

Around 110 million tones of fly ash get accumulated every year at the thermal power stations in India. Internationally fly ash is considered as a byproduct which can be used for many applications. Fly Ash Mission was initiated in 1994 to promote gainful and environment-friendly utilization of the material. One of the areas identified for its bulk utilization was in the construction of roads and embankments. Fly ash utilization in the country rose from 3 per cent (of 40 million tons) of fly ash produced annually in 1990s to about 32 per cent (of 110 million tonnes) of fly ash generated annually now. Fly ash is an excellent resource material for the construction industry. Fly ash utilization helps conserve natural resources like clay, limestone required for making cement thus saving the environment. Fly ash is an excellent fill material for road/rail embankment. Fly ash is suitable for reclamation of both opencast and underground mines. The de-coaled area can be reclaimed for agriculture/floriculture/a-forestation. Less requirement of land for fly ash pond. Fly ash has pozzolanic properties and used in the production of Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC), therefore “Environment-Friendly”.

This course introduces properties and use of Fly Ash in Civil Engineering Works and discusses various issues related to Fly Ash which will be beneficial to the users of Fly Ash. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Use of Fly Ash in Civil Engineering Works” from 21 - 24 May 2019

 INTRODUCTION:

“Project management is the process of the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements”. It is an interrelated group of processes that enables the project team to achieve a successful project. Monitoring involves gathering data, obtaining information during implementation of a project and using that information during implementation of objectives and take timely due decisions and corrective actions to ensure that progress and discipline are maintained according to pre-determined estimated schedule and completion is achieved within given resources, cost and time limits. Many projects suffer from variances between planned schedules, allocated budgets and actual implementation outcomes. Absence of valid and reliable base line data makes it extremely difficult to evaluate the impact of any project. Only verifiable indicators can facilitate the success of a project. To address and rectify such problems, Project directors / Managers must have accurate and timely information about the real progress of their projects so that necessary decision can be made in time to correct deviations and variances. There is a burning demand for a high level of construction project management in order to derive the required benefits from these new developments. This training programme develops participant skills required to identify and collect relevant data through effective monitoring and then using it to ensure success of their projects.

INTRODUCTION:

Innovative ground modification approaches are routinely used now to solve unique soil-related problems, and often are considered to be the most economical means to improve an undesirable site condition. Geo-synthetics have proven to be among the most versatile and cost-effective ground modification materials. Their use has expanded rapidly into nearly all areas of civil, geotechnical, environmental, coastal, and hydraulic engineering. The Indian Chapter of IGS is promoting the applications of the Geo-synthetics as important and relevant to India’s need for infrastructure development, for more than two decades. This course introduces Geo-synthetics from the perspective of practical application. Geo-synthetics solutions include Geotextiles, Geogrids and combinations of Geotextiles and geogrids. While a wide variety of site improvement methods have been used during the past decade, soil reinforcement has emerged as an efficient, economical and effective solution to the problem of constructing embankments over soft soils. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Geo-synthetics and Reinforced Soil Structures” from 25 - 28 June, 2019.

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.
