Dear  Visitor

It is JSD Monthly Meeting time again.

We will be getting together at the regular venue, the National Military History Museum, Saxonwold on Tuesday 20th July 2010.   We meet at 16.00 hrs for a cup of tea or coffee followed by the talk starting at about 16.30. The talk will be followed by refreshments and a time to network with peers. We plan to finish sometime between 18.00 and 18.30 hrs.

Topic: The behaviour and design of long tubular columns with pre-tensioned external stays

Presenter: Dr. Ahmer Wadee, Senior Lecturer, Dept of Civil Engineering, Imperial College London.

Dr. Ahmer Wadee will speak on the research subject they are busy with at the moment which is the design process for designing pre-stress of large bore long tubular columns with external pre-stressing members connected to the column (reducing the buckling length).

Dr. Wadee is currently a visiting academic in the Department of Environmental and Civil Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand.

We offer CPD points on qualifying lectures. But forget the points – come along and enjoy the learning opportunity and the networking with your professional peers.

Please confirm attendance by replying directly to Mr Steve Mackie at stevemackie@icon.co.za . To cover costs we will place a box at the door to receive a contribution of R100.00. Engineering and any other students will be asked for a contribution of R20.00

If you can identify any topic that will be of interest or any speaker you would like me to invite please send me a mail and I ‘ll see if we can arrange something.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 20th July 2010. Be there!  Thanks for your support.
