时间：12月4日 星期一 下午14:00-15:00
报告人：Erwin Oh 副教授
This presentation will provide an overview of recent Civil Engineering projects and research activities in South East Queensland. The presentation will also include two case studies. The first case study will focus on a cut-and-cover tunnel in Gold Coast airport. The tunnel was constructed using diaphragm walls to allow concurrent construction of airport runway above the tunnel. The second case study will share the experience on seawalls construction in Brisbane. The seawalls were constructed to accommodate a land reclamation project to expand the Port of Brisbane.
