CE Faculty at SPACE 2015 - Makati City

DLSU CE Faculty members presented technical papers at the Conference on Sustainable Proactive Advocacies in Civil Engineering (SPACE 2015) held on April 23-24, 2015 at the Intercontinental Hotel, Makati City. The conference with the theme," Addressing Social Concerns Through Civil Engineering" is hosted by the PICE Makati Chapter in cooperation with the Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP).

Dr. Lessandro Garciano (STE Division Head)  presented the paper co-authored with Dr. Renan Tanhueco (HWR Division) and two Japanese professors on "Risk analysis of power supply due to extreme floods in San Juan, Surigao City, Philippines." The study seeks to identify flood-prone areas in Surigao City and analyze the vulnerability of the power supply system for both residents and power provider due to extreme floods.

Dr. Andres Winston Oreta (STE Division) presented the paper on "Mechanical properties in compression of commercially available lumber in Metro Manila." The paper is an output of a research conducted by L. T. Chen, F. Ebanos and M. J. Kung. The study presented the results of laboratory tests on the compressive strength and other mechanical properties of "good lumber" and recommends the allowable stress thay may be used in structural design computations.
Engr. Alden Paul Balili presents his paper at the SPACE2015
 Engr. Alden Paul Balili (STE Division) presented his paper co-authored with Dr. Garciano on "Derivation of resistance and load factors for new cold formed sections taking into consideration updated wind load models." The paper presents a methodology for determining the resistance and load factors using reliability methods and tools - Monte Carlo Simulation and Rackwitz-Feissler method.

Dr. Danilo Terante (HWR Division Head) presented his paper on "Application of fuzzy logic modeling to water resources." The study presents a newly devised water allocation system in prioritization of the different land uses per barangay.
