Webinar on "Microtunneling - A Pioneering Technique of Trenchless Technology HELD ON 29-08-2020

Dear Students/ Faculty Members/ Engineers/ Research Scholars

Greetings of the Day...!!!!

It's my pleasure to announce that CIVIL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT OF BUDDHA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, GIDA, GORAKHPUR is conducting an An International Webinar on topic "Microtunneling - A Pioneering Technique of Trenchless Technology" in joint association with  "ENGINEERING COUNCIL OF INDIA (ECI) & CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL,(CIDC)" on 29th August, 2020 from 10:20 am to 12.30 pm for the faculty members, students of various institutions, universities and industry personnel of different industries and Research Scholars.


Inaugural speech : Dr P R Swarup (Director General, CIDC & Member Secretary, ECI)

Valedictory speech : Er B R Jain (Sr Advisor, ECI)

Expert talk : Er. Cheng Kim Hua (Principal, Ciwise Consultants)  



Er.  Cheng Kim Hua graduated with BE (Hons) from Monash University, Australia in 1976 and obtained his post graduate diploma in Hydraulic and Land Development from Delft International Institute (Holland) in 1982. He has been in the engineering/construction works since 1976, totalling to 36 years of involvement in the planning, design, and construction supervision and business development of engineering works including civil and infrastructures and trenchless structures. Er. Cheng served as the vice president of the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia, and Board Member of the Highway Authority, Malaysia and the Board of Engineers, Malaysia. He has also served in the continuing Education committee of the PE Board, Singapore and as the Treasurer of Singapore Concrete Institute. He  was a Board member of  the Singapore Society for Trenchless Technology SgSTT, and  advisor to Malaysian Society  for Tunnelling  and  Trenchless Technology ( MSTTT)

Er. Cheng is currently the Principal of Ciwise Consultants and  Director of JPL Consultants, O Liner  Sdn Bhd   and  Alliance Water & Environ Sdn Bhd.


About webinar: 

Microtunneling and Pipe Jacking is one of the pioneering Trenchless Technology  techniques that provides cost effective solutions to subsurface on-grade pipeline construction challenges. Subsurface space, however, poses different types of challenges that could lead to project failures at times. These challenges could be due to three main causes, geological, equipment, and tooling linked, or a combination thereof. In some cases, the project team fails to provide adequate inputs for these causes or deploys under-capacity systems, tunneling operations get stressed, leading to higher consumables consumption, damage to equipment, and to even tunnel or project failure. To overcome these challenges, the tunneling crew must apply appropriate good practices, deploy capable equipment, use efficient consumables and tooling for successful projects.  In this  webinar  Er.   Cheng  will introduce the  concept  of  trenchless technology  and  its  various  techniques. He  will also illustrate  the  applications  popularly used to undertake  such constructions. By some  case  studies he  will compare  cost, and  versatility of  some of  these methods


All the sessions are live on Google Meet. Details regarding the webinar will be shared with the registered participants by 28th August, 2020
