    About the workshop

    Rapidly growing worldwide population is triggering ever increasing demands for housing, industrial sites, civil engineering infrastructure and energy. This is putting an enormous strain on natural resources at a time
    when there is a strong case to tackle climate change and minimize pollution in the cities and the industrial areas. This workshop will address the issues associated with sustainability through promotion of low
    embodied energy building materials, energy conservation, environmental monitoring and increasing the service life of structures through structural health monitoring using smart sensors. To cover these aspects, new building materials, predictive tools using environmental modelling, energy efficiency and modern sensing tools will be discussed. This workshop will also highlight some of the crucial technical aspects required for Indian smart cities through the above stated concepts.

    Recent advances in science and technology provide new opportunities for buildings to interact with both internal and external environments. This workshop will cover technology based solutions to meet our objectives
    through a holistic approach. This can be achieved by the induction of renewable materials such as bamboo, inclusion of fundamental green building concepts to minimize energy consumption and modern sensing
    technologies to continually assess structural health. The key aspects of the workshop shall be a hands on demonstration on sensors in the session “SENSORS IN ACTION”. A glimpse of piezoelectric energy harvesting shall also be presented.

    The workshop will put across and showcase collaborative research
    activities between IIT Delhi and Trinity College Dublin, Ireland with
    industry collaboration under the area of “Engineered Bamboo".

    Key features of workshop

    A key feature of this workshop will be to discuss an integrated approach combining advanced materials, fabrication, analytical and modeling techniques for energy efficiency and environmental monitoring.
