PL: Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) for designing resilient buildings and infrastructure against extreme loads

Last modified: 2023-04-05


The construction industry has faced severe challenges over the past two decades. Spiralling costs of building materials and construction have made housing less affordable. In addition to that, the frequency and intensity of disasters have been steadily increasing in the last decades due to climate change. Many critical infrastructure as well buildings are particularly vulnerable, evidenced in the prevalence of floods, cyclones, and bush fires in recent years, exacerbated by populations heavily concentrated in cities and regional centres. Innovative designs, lightweight and high performance composite materials, and new construction techniques are urgently needed for producing sustainable, resilient, smart and cost-effective structures. Prof. Tuan Ngo’s presentation will highlight the key challenges, benefits and opportunities in using the Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) for developing high performance materials and structures for these extreme events. His talk will also cover new innovations in high performance composite materials, building systems, and construction techniques for resilient and sustainable infrastructure.
