Public Lecture: The Mystery of Ground Settlement 公開講座: 沉降之謎

Sep 26, 2018

Public Lecture: The Mystery of Ground Settlement
Professor Francis T.K. Au and Dr Fiona C.Y. Kwok, Department of Civil Engineering, The University of Hong Kong

Ground settlement has become a buzzword in the media for a few months. However, not much attention has been paid to the reasons behind this phenomenon, including the possible materials below ground level, and their likely responses to changes in loading and ground water level, construction activities in the neighbourhood, etc. Actually, different types of structure have different capabilities in accommodating settlements.

It is impossible to give simple answer to the phenomenon of ground settlement, the speakers will attempt to help the audience recognise the complexity of this phenomenon in a city.

Venue: Lecture Theatre A, Chow Yei Ching Building, THe University of Hong Kong (CB-A)

公開講座:   沉降之謎
香港大學土木工程系 區達光教授  及  郭頌怡博士

近月來沉降這一工程術語突然在傳媒間非常流行,可是大家卻沒有太多留意這現象背後的原因,包括地底下的可能土石層,和它們受荷載及地下水位的變化、周圍的建築工程等的影響。其實不同類型的結構對沉降的承受能力也不一樣。

沒有一個簡單的辦法可以解決所有沉降問題,講者希望透過是次講座讓大眾認識城市裡沉降問題的複雜性。
