SteelFuture Conference - Promoting ‘out of the box’ thinking for future survival

The future of steel construction worldwide will be discussed at a top-level conference in Johannesburg on March 2013. The SteelFuture Conference, organised by the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction (SAISC), brings together leading minds in the local and international steel industry. 

Professor Richard Liew, programme director of Hazard, Risk and Mitigation in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore, says that one of the exciting results of current research that is taking place at the university of Singapore and JFE Steel Group in Japan is in high-rise construction using concrete filled tubular steel columns where high strength steel and ultra-high strength concrete are used.
