FBE researchers won 1 gold and 1 silver medal in INATEX 2016

Two FBE researchers won two medals at Industrial Art and Technology Exhibition (INATEX) 2016 held from 4th October till 6th October 2016 in UTM, Skudai, Johor Bahru Malaysia.

INATEX is an annual event organised by UTM to promote the latest innovative inventions, products and technologies, and a platform for interacting and promoting partnership in R&D developed by UTM researchers to the public and the industry.

Sr. Dr Sarajul Fikri Mohamed who has developed i-FLOOD (Intelligent Flood Management System) has won the Gold Medal Award in this competition. The i-FLOOD is an integrated building assessment model (incorporating of damage pattern, RFID technology & cost evaluation) designed to enable engineers to adopt systematic and efficient actions for distribution of emergency relief and fund allocation for building damage.

Dr. Mohammadamin Azimi won Silver Medal Award for his research project titled Lock Block Multi-Functional Green Interlocking Mortar less Concrete Block. LOCKBLOCK, is a multi-functional green interlocking mortar-less concrete block which design through finite element simulation, shape optimization process with the aims of increase of construction productivity, reduction in construction duration and labour and reduced construction cost.
