National Conference on Wind & Earthquake Engineering And International Seminar On Sustainable Construction Engineering
For the 3rd NCWE, we proudly presented to you a new and improved version – we have upgraded this colloquium into a conference but still using the same abbreviation that is NCWE 2019. This time around we also included a small scale seminar called International Seminar On Sustainable Construction Engineering (ISSCE 2019) that is co-organised with Beijing Jiaotong University.
During past recent years, the numbers of building structural damage affected by extreme winds in Malaysia increased rapidly. It is because structural elements are not adequately designed for wind storm. Therefore, it is a must for a country like Malaysia to address issues related to wind disasters in design consideration. Besides, the earth tremor due to earthquake also become more frequent on Malaysia. Majority of the tremors originated from Sumatra Andaman and Philippines earthquakes. However, the June 2015 Ranau earthquake which occurred in Sabah became a strong evidence on why seismic design and retrofitting has to be considered in Malaysia. For this purpose, the NCWE 2019 will be co-hosted between Faculty of Civil Engineering & Earth Resources, UMP and Disaster Research Nexus, School of Civil Engineering, USM in Kuala Lumpur on 12-13 July 2019. Top notch experts, researchers, engineers, and scientist are invited to present finding related to the wind and earthquake engineering fields
International Seminar On Sustainable Construction Engineering (ISSCE 2019)
Over the last few years, the importance of sustainability has been critically highlighted as it is important for the preservation and sustainability of our earth as well as the health of our future generations. The concept of sustainability expands to all areas of human activity, including construction engineering. Construction engineering is a complex discipline that involves the designing, planning, construction and management of infrastructures. The application of elements of sustainability in any construction (engineering) activity increases the overall level of construction sustainability.
International Seminar of Sustainable Construction Engineering (ISSCE2019) aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Sustainable Construction Engineering. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Sustainable Construction Engineering.
