    Building the New Pooley Bridge

    Pooley Bridge is at the northern end of Lake Ullswater on the River Eamont which was crossed by a 250 year old stone bridge - until that was destroyed in the floods of Storm Desmond in 2015. This has now been replaced by a new bridge which was constructed on the river bank before being craned into place. The new stainless steel road bridge is the first structure of its kind in the country and cost £5M. The new bridge was built by Eric Wright Civil Engineering, and has been named as the best civil engineering project (over £5M) in the north west by the Civil Engineering Contractors' Association (NW). Speaker: Antony Mulligan, Senior Project Manager, Eric Wright Civil Engineering

    Airborne Radar in the Battle of the Atlantic, 1940 – 1945

    Air to Surface Vessel (ASV) radars first entered service with RAF Coastal Command early in 1940, in response to the rapidly emerging U-boat threat to Atlantic shipping. Over the next 5 years there was an extraordinary growth in this new technology, including the development of the magnetron, which was to play a key role in the defeat of the U-boat threat. Dr Simon Watts MBE, will describe the radar systems developed in the UK and USA for use in airborne maritime surveillance and used by RAF Coastal Command and the RN Fleet Air Arm. His talk will also describe the equivalent airborne systems developed for the German Luftwaffe, intended to assist the U boats in finding the convoys.

    Technical Webinar: Engineers fighting COVID-19 and infectious diseases - development of an automated diagnostic system

    Hong Kong is frequently posed with pandemic threats from a wide variety of respiratory diseases with newly emerging and contagious viral pathogens. The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has again given a real case scenario to the general public and the world how catastrophic the impacts a pandemic can bring. Pandemic will repeatedly pose threat to the community. Every time, it would cause numerous deaths and tremendous pressure on the public healthcare system. Engineers can contribute their part and provide solutions. One aspect is the development of rapid diagnostic systems. Such a system would be useful for frontline medical practitioners to quickly detect the pathogens and make the most appropriate decision for the patients: whether to provide a treatment or whether a patient requires hospitalization or isolation. This talk will discuss the development of a rapid diagnostic system in Hong Kong. Initiated by the Respiratory Virus Research Foundation, the system has been tested in various clinical evaluation, and is currently transitioning to the mass production phase. In this talk, the speakers will share their experience in the system development, highlighting the technical innovation as well as challenges.

    Webinar: New Era of Automation

    Automation in industrial applications has been maturely developed throughout the decades. With the help of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines, manufacturing processes are now safer, faster and more efficient. While automation in the manufacturing industry is very well known, the benefits brought by automation are not limited in the industrial sectors. In fact, automation also contributes to the betterment in the construction industry. Technology in robotics provides the construction industry with numerous advantages. With the goal of automating processes and thus increasing productivity, robotics are being used to get work done quicker, lowering costs and achieving precision. O-Matic Intelligent Robot Limited is a Hong Kong-owned private enterprise. Focusing on the development of industrial and construction robots through intelligent technologies, the company has many mature products such as cable robots, transportation robots, welding robots, grinding robots, and more. The CPD team is honoured to have Mr. Carlos Lee, CEO of O-Matic Intelligent Robot Limited, to introduce the advanced applications of robots in the construction industry.
