Meet Inspiring Speakers and Experts at our 1000+ Global Events inclusive of 300+ Conferences, 500+ Workshops and 200+ Symposiums every year on Pharma, Medicine, Science and Technology The construction industry of UAE witnessed construction contract awards to the tune of USD 40 billion in 2012, which is expected to increase to USD 50 billion by 2015, with bulk of the projects likely to be awarded over 2014 and 2015. Construction sector as a percentage of GDP of the UAE reached 10.5% in 2009 and 10.25% in 2011 while for 2015 and 2020 the sector’s contribution as a percentage of UAE GDP is projected to record 11.1% and 11.45% respectively. According to global market analysis, in 2014, the industry is expected to generate revenue of approximately 156.12 billion U.S. dollars. According to statistical record, in 2013 most of the regions including North America, South America, South Africa, MENA faced a growth of 4.5%, 5.0%, 6.0% and 5.5% respectively in construction Industry. That year revenue generated by global construction industry was around 124.69 billion USD. Steel Structure-2015 is comprised of 11 tracks and 82 sessions designed to offer comprehensive sessions that address current issues in Steel Structure-2015. Construction Engineering deals with the designing, planning, construction, and management of infrastructure. Construction engineers learn the designing aspect much like civil engineers and construction site management functions much like construction managers. It includes Automation in construction, Intelligent Construction Site, Advanced construction technologies, Building information modeling, Construction Materials. Structures incorporates several areas like Building Structures, Tall Buildings, Offshore Structures, Lightweight Structures, Bridges & transportation structures, Steel framing structures and Metal Buildings, Steel Fabrication, Composite materials, Smart & adaptive structure, Structural optimization & sensitivity analysis. In engineering and architecture, a structure is a body or assemblage of bodies in space to form a system capable of supporting loads. The effects of loads on physical structures are determined through structural analysis. Structural engineering refers to engineering of physical structures. Construction is the process of creating and building infrastructure or a facility. Steel Construction is the construction of a metal structure fabricated with steel for the internal support and for exterior cladding. Study of various engine parameters such as High Performance structural steel, Material Quality &Control, Cold formed steel, Non structured steel, High tensile strength steel) Advanced Steel Casting Techniques, Future trends in steel structures, Advanced sustainable material, Sustainable steel structure, composite construction. So many advantages are there of using steel such as steel is cost effective, energy efficient green product which does not easily warp, buckle, twist or bend, and is therefore easy to modify and offers design flexibility. Environmental engineering is the integration of sciences and engineering principles to improve the natural environment, to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to clean up pollution sites. In Steel Structures, environmental engineering or Green construction is used as a practice of erecting buildings and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource efficient.Topics like Environmental modeling, Environmental Protection, Green Construction, Use of Recycled Materials in Construction etc are being extensively researched into various civil and environmental engineering and multi-disciplinary research institutes and research groups. Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings.It is traditionally divided into several sub-disciplines including architectural engineering, environmental engineering,structural engineering, earthquake engineering, transportation engineering, materials engineering,wastewater engineering, coastal engineering, construction engineering, Urban Engineering, GIS, Remote sensing. Safety management in construction sites is very important business management system designed to manage safety elements in the workplace. Areas like Project management & Quality assurance, Safety management, fall protection, Occupational Safety Standards, Risk analysis, Building Automation system- HVAC are few topics related to safety management in construction. Structures which are designed to withstand earthquakes are known as earthquake resistance engineering structures. The goal of earthquake-resistant construction is to erect structures that fare better during seismic activity than their conventional counterparts. Study of various parameters like Structural dynamics, Nonlinear numerical analysis, Material mechanics & characterization, Retrofitting, Earthquake prediction, Earth resistance structural techniques, Earthquake resistant design via active and passive control, Performance-Based Designs are the major topics of earthquake resistance structural engineering. Nowadays, modern industrial techniques and operations are almost completely dependent on the use of digital and specialized software. Current trends in digitalization related to construction and steel structure industry are Software Solutions for steel structures, Computer Aided Design, 3D design simulation, software in design and simulation, Next generation techniques in Computer Aided Structural Design. Structural design is the determination of overall proportions and dimensions of the supporting framework and the selection of individual members. Structural steel is a material used for steel construction, which is formed with a specificshape following certain standards of chemical composition and strength. Topics like Fatigue and fracture mechanics in steel, Advanced design techniques, New structural systems, Connection design, Analysis of Semi-rigid Connections, Structural modeling and analysisare being extensively researched into various structural engineering and multi-disciplinary research institutes and research groups. The Construction industry is an important indicator of the development in a city as it creates investment opportunities across various related sectors. Areas like Construction Industry: Emerging markets & business opportunities, Collaborative Business Model, Business opportunity in Green Building Industry, Case Studies in Contract Management, Quality management in construction industry, Concurrent Engineering concept in construction industry, Construction Market Analysis, Construction market in Middle East are few topics which will be discussed in Steel Structure-2015 Dubai Congress. Fire engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to protect people, property, and their environments from the harmful and destructive effects of fire and smoke. It encompasses fire protection engineering and fire safety engineering. Fire protection engineers identify risks and design safeguards that aid in preventing, controlling, and mitigating the effects of fires. Fire engineers assist architects, building owners and developers in evaluating buildings' life safety and property protection goals. This track will cover Fire in structures and Structural members, Material behavior at elevated temperature, Performance based Design, Modeling – Simple calculation methods and simulations, Experimental studies, Validation of Fire Protection Models, Fire Engineering, Fire Engineering design codes, Fire safety in oil, gas and nuclear facilities, Fire safety management.
The topics which shall be discussed will range from Construction Process and Steel Structures to Earthquake Resistance Engineering Structures and Geotechnical Engineering. During the conference, international symposiums, B2B meetings, international workshops will also be organized to discuss the specific topics in the field of Construction and Steel Structure. The conference also welcomes International exhibitions form corporate sectors to showcase the recent advancements in the tools and techniques. In all its ways OMICS Group creates an opportunity to make partnership deals which shall turn into a cent percent successful event.
