One Day Exhibition and Seminar on Deep Foundation Technologies and Equipments

This seminar and exhibition is unique in Malaysia where foundation equipment & technology specialists shared with the Malaysian Engineers on the specific knowledge on their equipments and technologies; main considerations, advantages & disadvantages, and limitations with respect to their specialised type of technologies and equipments in geotechnical engineering. The presentations include the latest and up to date equipments and technologies as well as practical case histories.

Programme
8.30am – 9.00am Registration, Log-in and Welcome Coffee
9.00am – 9.15am Welcoming Remarks and Introduction by Malaysian Geotechnical Society (MGS)
9.15am – 10.15am Keynote Lecture - The Long March to Engineering Excellence – A Tale of Bridging Three Cities by Ir. Aaron Bok & Mr. Liang Heng
Hailed as one of the longest bridges above water in the world, the 42 km long Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge (HZMB) is constructed with the mission to speed up the integration of cities in the Pearl River Delta.,On October 22, 2018, Chinese President Xi Jinping officially opened what is now the “world’s longest sea crossing bridge”, describing the finesse as a bridge of “fulfilled dreams”, “connected hearts”, “confidence” and “rejuvenation”.
The bridge consists of a 42km structure including a bridge/viaduct, 4 man-made island, 3 cable-stayed bridges, immersed tube tunnel, and drill and blast tunnel spanning across the Pearl River Delta.,The length is equivalent to 15 Golden Gate Bridges lined end to end, and using a total of 400,000 tonnes of steel, which is enough to build 60 Eiffel Towers.
In terms of engineering, the project is highly complex and challenging.,It took the best of like-minded professional from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau to conceive the engineering serendipity on what was considered a mission impossible at the outset. To deliver, the team of expertise studied the water dynamic, the extreme wind loadings from typhoon, the seismic sensitivity, air draft, marine ecology and construction constraints / logistics over the busy delta.
The authors were from the project management and engineering teams of their respective country of domicile.,Their presentation will focus on the amalgamation of design codes, project management and engineering challenges for HZMB pertaining to the geotechnical works involved.Adeline Moo Hong Shin
