  • Using polymer octet lattice to reinforce the pliability of concrete

    Berkeley Engineering: Researchers Create Tougher, Environmentally-friendly Concrete

    In October 2020, Berkeley Engineering featured a civil and mechanical engineering ingenuity, a stronger concrete with less carbon emission, that was created by SinBerBEST Theme C researchers including Claudia Ostertag, Hayden Taylor, Brian Salazar, Parham Aghdasi, and Ian Williams. The research team utilized a 3D printer to create polymer-based octet lattices, and then poured ultra-high performance concrete, which is four times sturdier than traditional concrete in compaction, into the lattices.

Congratulations to Dr. Sanjib Kumar Panda who has been elevated to IEEE Fellow for contributions to iterative learning control of motor drives.

SinBerBEST Principal Investigators and Postdoctoral Scholars have been granted a patent for creating a process for forming an antenna structure and for embedding an antenna system in concrete. In 2016, Prof. Boon Hee Soong, Prof. Paulo Monteiro, Dr. Vanessa Reinheimer, and Dr. Yee Loon Soong, filed this patent application in order enhance the concrete structure's energy harvesting capabilities for embedded Internet of Things (IoT) applications, but to also significantly improve the overall performance of wireless technologies within buildings. Congratulations!

Research collaboration between SinBerBEST 2 and UC Berkeley’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science  (EECS) team resulted in a O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award from the American Automatic Control Council (AACC) in 2020.

On 19th November 2019, Minister for Social and Family Development & Second Minister for  National Development, Mr Desmond Lee and fellow co-chair Mr Lim Ming Yan, former president and group chief executive office of CapitaLand, along with the FEC BE Cluster Sub-committee members visited the living lab at the Zero Energy Building (ZEB) located in the BCA Braddell Campus.

SinBerBEST team members, along with other researchers from industry and academia,  are organizing the International Workshop on Applied Machine Learning for Intelligent Energy Systems (AMLIES) as part of the ACM e-Energy Conference 2020 at Melbourne, Australia. The workshop's objective is to bring researchers together to discuss the underlying challenges related to the application of Machine Learning to Energy Syste
