This workshop is organised for the 4th time in response to the favourable feedback in 2017, and is also developed as a follow-up to our popular Workshop on Geology of Singapore held in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018. It aims to provide a link between the knowledge of geology and its engineering applications in underground construction and rock cavern space development. It will present and discuss systematically the fundamentals of engineering geology and best practices both internationally and within the context of Singapore. It will cover the engineering uses of both soil and rocks, the theory and practice in site investigations for underground construction, rock mass classification methods for rock cavern design, and the basic concept and practical aspects of managing geological risks. The workshop is suitable for both engineers with little prior training in engineering geology and experienced engineers who want an update and a refresher course. It will be taught by Dr Cai Jungang and Dr Zhou Yingxin, two highly regarded and very experienced specialists.
Date: Wednesday, 10 July 2019
Time: 9am to 5pm
Venue: Singapore Management University

About the Speakers
Dr Cai Jun Gang is currently an Executive Director of Tritech Group Limited. He obtained MEng and PhD in Geotechnical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore. He has over 25 years of practical experience in engineering geology, rock and geotechnical engineering R&D, consultancy and project management. Dr Cai has played a leading role for most rock cavern development in Singapore, including underground ammunition facilities, proposed underground science city at Kent Ridge, Jurong oil storage rock caverns (JRC) at Jurong Island, feasibility study of underground rock cavern (URC) usages in Singapore, feasibility study of underground drainage and reservoir system (UDRS) in Singapore.
Dr. Zhou Yingxin is Head Engineering (Underground Facilities) with the Defence Science & Technology Agency. He has extensive experience in research, engineering, and teaching in the area of engineering geology, rock mechanics and rock engineering, and underground space technology. He has been involved in several major rock engineering projects in Singapore and providing technical advice to various government agencies on matters related to rock engineering and underground space use. Dr Zhou was the founding President of the SRMEG and founding council member of TUCSS. He served as Vice President for Asia of the International Society for Rock Mechanics and Vice President of the Associated research Centres for the Urban Underground Space (ACUUS), and was Assoc (Adj) Prof at NTU from 2011 to 2018. Dr Zhou currently serves as a member of the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Tunnelling & Underground Space Technology, Member of the ACUUS Board, and Member of the Advisory Board for the ITA Committee on Underground Space. He has more than 100 technical publications and seven edited books and conference proceedings. Dr Zhou received the Defence Technology Prize 2018 Engineering (Individual) Award for his contributions in rock engineering in space creation and defence in Singapore.

Asia is witnessing the greatest growth and demand in the world for infrastructure and resource development. According to Asian Development Bank, approximately US$8 trillion needs to be invested in overall national infrastructure before 2020, 68% of which is for new capacity. Certainly, rock mechanics and rock engineering will have a critical role to play in many of these infrastructure and resource development projects.
Singapore is ideally located in Asia, where the needs for infrastructure and resource development are well supported by high-level research from the Academia and governments. ARMS 10 Singapore 2018 offers an ideal opportunity and platform for professionals from the international rock mechanics community to exchange experiences and new ideas. In addition to the technical programs, we will organize training courses, workshops, technical visits, exhibitions, as well social programs. We will also offer attractive programs for young researchers and students, such as the Rock Bowl, student nights, and some scholarships for selected young researchers.

SRMEG will be organising the 5th Workshop on Geology of Singapore with support from the Geotechnical Society of Singapore. This is the 5th time the workshop is conducted in consideration of the good response from previous years. It aims to present and discuss systematically the geology of Singapore, as the geological map of Singapore has been updated from the old version published in 1976 and a new stratigraphical framework for the Jurong Group may be proposed soon.
