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. For the safe and efficient movement of people and goods on roadways, Traffic engineering uses engineering techniques for the issues we all face with regards to transport and mobility which are too complex to be tackled alone. The application of technology and scientific principles to the planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods.

INTRODUCTION

Durability of any structure increases with good maintenance practices from the day one of its completion. Good maintenance practices leads a building to successfully complete its designed life. During the recent past, much importance is not being given for the maintenance of structures, resulting in distress of structures prematurely. Any structure is bound to show signs of distress in the form of cracks or deflections at some stage of the life. If the structure shows the signs of distress before its design life, it can be made to perform well with appropriate repair / rehabilitation / retrofitting process. In seismic active regions, the structures are subjected to both static and dynamic loads and hence, special care needs to be taken while performing the analysis, as well as repairing and maintenance processes. Prevention, diagnosis and rectification of structural defects – sometimes leading to collapses, is a legal and moral responsibility of all those concerned with conceiving, planning, design and construction of building projects. Lack of durability of RCC structures is another agonizing concern especially in coastal areas. RCC buildings designed to last for a century needing “Rehabilitation works” within 30 years of construction is a matter of grave concern. It is essential for everyone involved in the construction industry to understand the intricacies involved in repair / rehabilitation / retrofitting and maintenance of the structures for understanding the problem in a better manner and also to know the latest trends in managing these issues. This programme on “Good Maintenance Practices for Durability of Structures”, ESCI aims to address the issues involved in good maintenance practices for the durability of structures.

INTRODUCTION:

“Project management is the process of the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements”. That is, project management is an interrelated group of processes that enables the project team to achieve a successful project. These processes manage inputs to and produce outputs from specific activities; the progression from input to output forms the nucleus of project management and requires integration and interaction. According to the Indian standard IS/ISO 10006:2003, is a “unique process, consisting of a set of coordinated and controlled activities with start and finish dates, undertaken to achieve an objective conforming to specific requirements, including the constraints of time, cost and resources”. Project Management consists of “Planning, Organizing, Monitoring, Controlling and Reporting of all aspects of a project and the motivation of all those involved in it to achieve the project objectives”. 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. 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. There is considerable specialization, both among types of construction and among on-site operations of a particular project. With the increasing understanding of materials, improved designs, improved construction and management techniques and introduction of computers, modern construction is a multi-disciplinary activity. Technological changes in construction trend to be gradual and include a wide variety of developments in materials, equipment and methods. There is a pressing demand for a high level of construction management in order to derive the required benefits from these new developments.

INTRODUCTION:

Management of the construction works in a project has become a vital point as it involves many components. This has to be tackled in an efficient manner for economic, timely and quality completion of any project. As the Construction Management is complex in nature, planning is to be done in advance duly taking into consideration, the various works involved, technical and non-technical skills required, finances required, period of completion to see that every component is completed in time as per the requirements. As most of the projects are getting in trouble due to lack of proper planning and finances. It is desirable to have an effective management in construction of any project so as to get the benefits expected in time. Unless the officers involved in construction of projects and construction companies are properly trained in construction management, it is very difficult to manage the construction of any project. Realizing the necessity, ESCI is organizing a 4-day training programme on Construction Management – Best Practices and Modern Technologies from 20 – 23 November, 2017.

INTRODUCTION:

India has a vast road network playing a pivotal role in the movement of 65% of total freight and 85% of total passenger traffic in the country. With the total length of roads in the country exceeding 3.34 million kilometers, India stands second only to the United States. Traffic on Indian roads is growing at a rate of 10 to 12% per annum. To satisfy the increasing Traffic demand on roads, programmes such as NHDP and PMGSY have been launched. But the initial performance levels of the pavements built so far have not been so encouraging. The condition of most of the roads is deplorable. Potholes, deep enough to damage the vehicles, stretches, washed away by rains and shoulders poorly maintained are often becoming death-traps for motorists. The recent deluge in major cities woke up everyone to recognize the need to upgrade its infrastructure. The quality of our roads cannot meet the needs of an efficient and fast moving transportation system. All this is seen in spite of technology growth. We have not yet fully adopted the new developments in construction and maintenance activities. Most of Indian roads are flexible pavements, the ones having asphalt-toppings. Flexible pavements have a great advantage that these can be strengthened and improved in stages with the growth of traffic. Another major advantage of these roads is that their surfaces can be milled and recycled. These are less expensive also. To create awareness among the engineers on the benefits of adopting proper design procedures, materials, construction techniques, quality control and maintenance reducing the life-cycle costs, this three day programme on “Flexible Pavements and Overlays - Design, Construction and Maintenance” is formulated to fulfill the needs of the agencies who are associated with formulation and developing the road sector in India.
