Our Government will be implementing BIM and IBS from as soon as 2018 as part of RMK-11. Continue reading “Half Day Seminar on “Practical, Designable and Constructible BIM for Structural Engineers””

Presentation on “Solving Tough Water Environment Issues Using Modelling Tools with Example Case Studies” (In-conjunction with Sabah World Rivers Day Conference and Exhibition 2017)

Date : 18 September 2017 (Monday) 
Time : 12.00p.m. – 5.00p.m. 
Venue : Meeting Room 6, Level 1, Magellan Sutera, Sutera Harbour Resort, Kota Kinabalu

Limited knowledge on hydraulics conditions of study area, uncertainties of flood risks levels, potential impacts to water quality and sediment transport are among various issues posed while working within the water environment – be it a river, a reservoir, an ocean, a coastline, within a city or a factory – has long been a challenge to engineers.

The present talk organized by DHI and co-hosted by IEM Sabah will introduce to the participant a general overview on how the usage of modelling tools assist in generating solutions to address tough water environmental issues. At the same time, DHI speakers from Malaysia will share their experiences of example of practical case studies conducted using MIKE.
