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 (Including 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:

The National Building Code of India (NBC) is an extensive building Code providing guidelines and standard procedure for regulating the building construction activities across the country. It serves as a Model Code for adoption by all agencies/companies involved in building construction activities government construction departments, local bodies or private construction agencies. The Code was first published in 1970 was subsequently revised in 1983 and 2005 and it has been revised again as NBC 2016. Due to massive changes in the building construction works, change in nature of occupancies with prevalence of high rises and mixed occupancies, greater dependence and complicated nature of building services, development of new/innovative construction materials and technologies, greater need for preservation of environment and recognition of need for planned management of existing buildings and built environment, there has been a transformation in building construction scenario. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Regulatory Practices in National Building Code 2016” from 11 – 13 September 2019.

INTRODUCTION:
The total design, construction and management of bridges can be as simple as or as complex as desired but ultimately it starts with a solid inspection program.  Bridges should have a level 1 maintenance inspection annually to determine if there are any issues that need to be remedied to keep the public safe. A level 1 inspection can be used effectively to screen and develop a program for more detailed needs such as higher level inspections.
A level 2 condition inspection is a more comprehensive inspection and is completed on a less frequent and scheduled basis. Handover inspections can be completed as a level 2 inspection or as a separate report as required It is imperative that any problems with the infrastructure are identified. Regular inspections make it easier to plan and manage future network demand including budgets and risk.

INTRODUCTION:

Concrete is one of the most accomplished, cost economical, durable and effectively used material in the construction activity all over the world. It is among the few building materials produced directly on the job by the user. To know proper mix and its design, it is important for the user to determine desirable properties for components and methods to adopt the safety factors involved in producing concrete. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view of the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Concrete Mix design & Acceptance Criteria of Concrete for different types of structures” from 15 - 18 October, 2019.

INTRODUCTION

Construction is the largest among all the industries in the country and it has been growing at an alarming rate in India. The construction industry has been struggling with quality issues for many years, and the cost to our economy is dramatic. The cost could potentially be reduced significantly if the industry were to embrace the concept of quality assurance that has been used with great success by many other sectors of the economy. The construction industry is unique, and therefore, the application of quality assurance requires an approach that meets the needs of the industry. Building owners also need to be educated as to what is quality assurance so that they can begin using their voice to encourage adaptation of this approach to protect their investments and reduce the cost of construction. Quality control in construction typically involves ensuring compliance with minimum standards of materials and workmanship in order to assure the performance of facility according to the design. Quality assurance is about being “in control” of all major areas of your business (“key processes”) so that you can assure quality. Being “in control” also reduces variation, which improves quality. Quality assurance and quality tools add value wherever they are applied! The key to unlocking this value is to determine what level of investment is needed in quality assurance for your business. Quality assurance is a thought process as much as it is a system, which must be learned. Quality assurance is about control, applied systematic methods, assuring quality, applied due-diligence, risk management, keeping defects from your customer, mistake-proofing, continuous improvement, and so on. Therefore, it is a worthwhile investment to periodically utilize a qualified quality professional to impart the knowledge and to assist the company in developing and maintaining the quality system and “quality toolbox”. The result will be a much smarter company.

INTRODUCTION

Pre-stressed concrete is used largely in bridges, multistory buildings in many other important parts of present modern infrastructure while Post-tensioned concrete is becoming increasingly used particularly for high rise construction where the saving in the slab depths can make a big difference in the height of the building. Post-Tensioning is a productive way of reinforcing concrete while you are constructing - often allowing the construction of something which might contrarily have been impractical. It is a method of reinforcing concrete or other materials with high-strength steel. The inherent vulnerability of concrete in tension is counteracted by introducing a pre-compression in a pre-stressed member, which improves its service load behavior, leading to reduced deflections and cracking. An early perspective of its behavior is essential before safe and economical designs can be produced. The use of pre-stressed and post tensioned concrete structures reduces the time of construction and provides quality assured members. It also reduces the building weight, which reduces the lateral loads caused by earthquakes thus delivering a more economical and environmentally friendly solution. The efficiency of the design depends on the understanding by engineers of the pre-stressing concept as applied to the common concrete elements. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view of the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Pre-Stress and Post-tensioned Structures- Design, Construction and Repair” from 04 – 07 November, 2019. This course will provide a detailed coverage on behavior of pre-stressed and post-tensioned concrete, analysis and design for strength, serviceability and losses in pre-stress.

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.
