A novel non-destructive inspection (NDI) technique invented by CityU's Professor Michael Hung, Chair Professor in the departments of Electronic Engineering, and Building and Construction, may provide the answer to detecting faults in building structures.
One of the leading experts in steel structures believes that in the wake of the World Trade Centre (WTC) attacks in September 2001, teaching building and engineering students how to analyse the behaviour of structures is very important.

In the light of last year's tragic events of 11 September, Bulletin held a roundtable discussion on the issue of tall building safety. Our panel of experts considered the implications of the terrorist attacks on building safety and security in Hong Kong.
The chances of a major fire in one of Hong Kong's skyscrapers are remote. Regular drills, state-of-the-art fire fighting systems and a regiment of highly-trained firemen mean the kind of fire Paul Newman had to deal with in the film Towering Inferno is unlikely.

Our model presents fire engineers with an accurate means of determining and evaluating safety levels in buildings by simulating an actual fire. The calculations provide information that makes more efficient use of space and building material, and help create a more cost-effective design to solve fire-related problems.
