Training on Bitumen Emulsification Process

Highway Laboratory, 07.08.2016 (Sunday).

 

Pada 7 Ogos 2016, Makmal Pengangkutan telah mengadakan latihan bagi penghasilan bitumen emulsi menggunakan laboratory batch colloid mill. Latihan yang telah dikendalikan oleh ASA Infratech Sdn Bhd  ini telah disertai oleh beberapa orang staf akademik, staf makmal dan juga pelajar-pelajar pascasiswazah.  Sepanjang latihan ini, para peserta didedahkan tentang beberapa kaedah makmal dalam penghasilan bitumen emulsi iaitu sejenis campuran bitumen dan juga air yang banyak digunakan dalam kerja-kerja pembinaan dan juga rehabilitasi jalan. Dengan pendedahan tentang beberapa kaedah penghasilan bitumen emulsi ini diharap dapat membantu para penyelidik universiti untuk lebih kreatif dan inovatif dalam mempelbagaikan kajian  bahan pembinaan jalanraya yang lebih bermutu tinggi pada kos yang minimum, serta mesra alam.

GEOCON 2013

GEOCON 2013

 

GEOCON2013 -The 9th International Conference of Geotechnical & Transportation Engineering (Geotropika) and The 1st International Conference on Construction and Building Engineering (Iconbuild) has been successfully conducted on 28-30 October 2013 at Persada Johor International Convention Centre.

The conference brought together leading researchers, engineers and scientist from related field of interest from around the world. The Geotropika-Iconbuild conference aims to establish scientific link at international level for sharing and disseminating valuable information on activities in Civil Engineering researches in developing countries. There were 137 technical papers received from eleven countries and presented during GEOCON2013.

With the theme of ‘Sustainability in Construction and Transportation for Better Future’ for GEOCON2013, it covers the built environment, which serves as a dynamic interface through which the human society and the ecosystem interact and influence each other. Understanding this interdependence is key to understanding sustainability as it applies to construction, geotechnical and transportation engineering. Thus, the technical sessions of GEOCON2013 are of construction, geotechnical, highway and transportation engineering fields.

There were 5 keynote speakers who had delivered their speech in the conference.

  1. Professor Gordon Airey, Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre, University of Nottingham UK – ‘Green Technology and Sustainability in Highway Engineering’ Ensuring Sustainability Moisture Damage Performance of Asphalt Paving Materials.
  2. Professor Dr Muhd. Zaimi Abd Majid, Dean of Construction Research Alliance, UTM – Innovative and Sustainable Construction Technology
  3. Mr. Shahar Effendi Abdullah Azizi, State Director Department of Mineral and Geosciences Malaysia, Johor – Controlled Blasting in Urban Development Areas
  4. Professor Dr Niki Lukviarman, Rector Universitas Bung Hatta, Indonesia – Towards Sustainable Engineering Education: The Role of Bung Hatta University
  5. Associate Professor Dr Othman Che Puan, UTM – Sustainable Transportation Systems in Malaysia: Issues and Possible Strategies
