Over the last 100 years, the traditional building and structural systems have efficiently served the purpose of providing built facilities for societal growth and development. However, with recently growing rates of urbanization and population, and the correspondingly increasing needs of better residential and commercial buildings, the necessity of innovative and more efficient building systems is also increasing.

Reinforced Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials. The flexibility of casting it in any desired form and shape provides several opportunities to develop innovative building systems.

Dr. Naveed Anwar, Structural Engineering Expert and Executive Director of AIT Solutions presented the Development of New Building Systems in Concrete at the Asian Concrete Conference held on 20-12 September 2017 at Bangkok Thailand.

His presentation focuses on a systematic process and examples of how new concrete systems are conceived, validated through laboratory testing and then produced at large-scale levels. It also discusses some of the tools and skills required to efficiently undergo this process. Using examples of some recently developed innovating structural systems and their applications, it elaborates how academia and industry can go hand-in-hands to develop innovation solutions of real-world problems.

Several innovative and interesting ideas are presented, for example, the use of Artificial Neural Network as a decision support system in structural design, and the applications of drone imaging and photogrammetry in construction monitoring.
