Transport Security Workshop: Delivering a Secure, Resilient Network

22nd November @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street, Westminster
London, England SW1P 3AA United Kingdom

Transport networks are the lifeblood of our society and economy, yet they face very real threats from terrorism, espionage and other hostile activity. Compromises of networks, failures of systems or losses of sensitive information can have serious consequences for asset operators and end users. The potential for disruption is huge. While digitalisation is reshaping the way we deliver infrastructure, we must build resilience to the added complexities and security vulnerabilities it presents. Autonomous networks must be secure by design, and…

Detecting hidden defects in bridges

22nd November @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street, Westminster
London, England SW1P 3AA United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Organised in conjunction with CIRIA, this event will showcase the latest good practices for assessing the risks from hidden defects, adopting emergent technologies which assist in the management of hidden defects and implementing structural repairs which can prevent the formation or mitigate against the impact of hidden defects. The lecture will be based on (C764) Hidden defects in bridges – the new good practice guidance on detection management, published to provide the bridge engineering community with methods on how to identify, investigate…

Wind engineering for serviceability and resilience

23rd November @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm
Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street, Westminster
London, England SW1P 3AA United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Traditionally the role of wind engineers has focused on determining the design wind loading caused by extreme wind speeds on a wide range of civil engineering structures, through the use of atmospheric boundary layer wind tunnel testing, computational fluid dynamics calculations and a series of well-developed codes of practice. However, the effects of winds on the built environment, both beneficial and detrimental, are much more wide ranging, and the expertise of wind engineers can be applied to a variety of…

Following the success of the first event in May, Structural-Safety are holding their second Case Studies event at the ICE on the 27 November. The event will begin with a presentation from Structural-Safety member Dr Allan Mann on Large Structures, where he will discuss how a lack of understanding of scale effects can lead to safety and commercial risks. Three Young Members from the Institution of Civil Engineers and The Institution of Structural Engineers will then present a structural failure…

Response of earth dams to earthquake events – field data and numerical modelling

29th November @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street, Westminster
London, England SW1P 3AA United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Many earth dams around the world are located in zones characterised by moderate to high seismicity. Their seismic stability can be particularly critical for the safety of the areas in the downstream side and therefore an in-depth understanding of their response during earthquakes is required. Relevant experimental data are hard to obtain as full scale tests are very expensive to be performed and real data recorded from actual earthquakes are rare and sparse. On the other hand, sophisticated numerical models…
