CHAMPLAIN TOWER COLLAPSE

Early Observations & Implications
8th JULY 2021- 5 to 7pm IST



In the early hours of 24 June 24 2021, one wing of the Champlain Towers South in Surfside near Miami, Florida, suffered a brittle collapse resulting in significant loss of life. Following the failure, the town of Surfside made available on its website all documents related to the project including drawings. A quick study of structural drawings provides valuable insights into the practice of flat slab design and construction of the time. The unfortunate incident provides an opportunity for the Indian structural engineering community to introspect and review the current practices in the design and development of similar types of construction.

The event on 8 July 2021 will discuss the inherent vulnerabilities of the collapsed structure and juxtapose it with the code requirements and design practices prevalent then and now. Also, it will present a discussion on the issues involved in flat slab buildings, the evolution of design codes over the past four decades, and the improvements needed in the application of such structural systems in the road ahead...

The program of the event is:

17:00 Welcome
------
17:05 Presentation on Collapse of the Champlain Tower : Alpa Sheth, VMS Consultants Private Limited, Mumbai
------
17:35 Issues involved in Flat Slab Systems
