                ACECC Membership Drive Proposal

Introduction

    Asian Civil Engineering Coordinating Council (ACECC) was founded
on September 27, 1999 in Tokyo, Japan. The purpose of the ACECC is to
schedule Asian forums where worldwide members of the civil
engineering profession may jointly develop programs of coordination
and mutual action in designated matters affecting the interests of civil
engineers and related professions. The ACECC, through separate
planning and technical committees, identifies and develops methods
that facilitate the discussion of worldwide civil engineering technology
needs, issues, and practices for the early decades of the 21st century.
The members are working together to: exchange information and data;
establish partnerships leading to maximizing their technological
resources; identify appropriate methods that shall meet the changing
future needs of the civil engineering profession; and seek ways to better
transfer the findings from future conferences into practice.

Current Members

    The founding members of ACECC are American Society of Engineers
(ASCE), Chinese Institute of Civil and Hydraulic Engineering (CICH),
Japan Society of Civil Engineers (JSCE), Korean Society of Civil
Engineers (KSCE), and Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE.) The
Vietnam Federation of Civil Engineering Associations (VIFCEA, formerly
“Vietnam Construction Association”) and Engineers Australia (EA,
formerly “the Institution of Engineers, Australia”) joined ACECC in April,
2000 following by Mongolian Association of Civil Engineers (MACE) in
December 2004, Presently, ACECC comprises eight members including
the American Society of Engineers (ASCE), the Chinese Institute of Civil
and Hydraulic Engineering (CICHE), Engineers Australia (EA), the Japan
Society of Civil Engineers (JSCE), the Korean Society of Civil Engineers
(KSCE), the Mongolian Association of Civil Engineers (MACE), the
Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE) and the Vietnam Federation
of Civil Engineering Associations (VIFCEA).

Asia and Economy

    Asia is the largest continent on Earth. It is bounded by the Arctic,
Pacific, and Indian oceans. The western boundary, with Europe, runs
roughly north-south along the eastern Ural Mountain, Caspian, Black,
Aegean, and Mediterranean seas; the Suez Canal; and the Red Sea. The
islands of Sri Lanka and Taiwan and the archipelagoes of Indonesia
(excluding New Guinea), the Philippines, and Japan also form part of
Asia. Mountains and plateaus predominate on the continent, with the
highest mountains located in Central Asia and north of the Indian
                      th

subcontinent. Terrain features include Earth's highest peak, Mount
Everest at 29,035 ft (8,850 m), and the lowest natural point, the Deadsea
at 1,312 ft (400 m) below sea level (Encyclopedia Britannica Online.)

   According to Wikipedia, Asia has area of 17,226,000 sq mi (44,614,000
sq km), approximate 60 % of world population (estimated by Internet
World Stats with 3,667,774,000 in 2006,) living in 46 different states.
Currently, Asia generates around US$ 18 trillion GDP. In the last decade,
the economy of China and India are growing at well over 6% per year,
Pakistan is at almost 8% since 1998. Meanwhile, Thailand, Malaysia, and
Indonesia emerged as the new Asian tigers with their GDPs growing well
above 7% per year in the 1980s and the 90s. Their economies were
mainly driven by growing exports. The Philippines is also considered as
a new Asian Tiger began to open up its economy again in the early in the
90's. Vietnam's economy began to grow in 1995, shortly after the US and
Vietnam restored economic and political ties.

  Throughout the 1990s, the manufacturing ability and cheap labor
markets in Asian developing nations allowed companies there to
establish themselves in many of the industries previously dominated by
companies from developed nations. Asia became one of the largest
sources of automobiles, machinery, equipment and other electronics.

Membership Requirements

   With the abovementioned statistics, it is foreseeable that there is
great potential business and responsibility for civil engineers. No doubt
that civil engineering will be booming throughout the next few decades
in Asia. To sustainably enhance the Asia economy and to help Asia
achieve the common good of civil engineers in improving the human live
and living environment, ACECC welcomes all the civil engineering
societies and institutes to join the council.

   Although the ACECC is mainly organized by the civil engineering
societies/institutions in the Asian region, membership is open to
worldwide professional organizations that comply with the criteria
established in the Constitution and By-laws of ACECC. The applicant
society/institution may become a member as long as the applicant
represents civil engineering profession in an economic region and the
applicant has (1) Profile (2) President or Chair, (3) Secretary and
Treasurer, (4) Address for its Secretariat, (5) Financial basis for payment

Recruiting Action Plan & Timeline

   Invitation letters will be sent by the chair of ACECC Executive
Committee to all the civil engineering organization representing each
aforementioned economic region and selected civil engineering
organization outside of Asian region, once the correct contact
information is obtained. The membership committee chair will follow up
the invitation letter with e-mails, and phone calls for further promoting
ACECC membership. If necessary, the membership committee chair may
pay face-to-face visits for facilitating the communication and
commitment of these potential civil engineering organizations.

   Meanwhile, to enhance public relationship and to foster participatory
ownership, if there are sessions available for additional papers, it can be
proposed that these representatives from identified civil engineering
organizations will be invited to make presentations in the 4th CECAR.

   From previous contacts, the following economic regions post high
possibility to join ACECC. It is proposed that the representatives from
the economic regions of Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Laos, India,
Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, be
invited to observe the 4th CECAR during June 25-28, 2007 at Taipei,
Taiwan and the 15th ECM.

    CICHE has frequent contacts with representative civil engineering
organization from the economic region of              China, Hong Kong,
Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. However, CICHE does not have close
tie with civil engineering societies/institutes of other economic regions.
It is proposing that each member of ACECC can volunteer to adopt an
economic region or regions for helping recruit the representative civil
engineering organization to participate the 14th ECM and/or the 4th

2. Outline of the Nominated Project
  - Project name: Hsuehshan Tunnel (Taipei -Ilan Expressway Project)
  - Project location: Taipei and Ilan county, Taiwan, Republic of China
  - Completion date: 16 JUN 2006
 - Description of the project:
 In the light of the regional balance and faster development of eastern Taiwan,
 Hsuehshan Tunnel i s a prime government project. The Hsuehshan Tunnel,
 currently the fifth longest in the world, is a 12.9km long tunnel that penetrates
 through the Hsuehshan Mountain Range in the northeast part of Taiwan.
 This tunnel consists of two main tubes of 11.8m in diameter, one
 4.8-diameter pilot tube, 28 pedestrian cross connection tunnels, 8 vehicle
 cross connection tunnels along the route, and three sets of twin ventilation
 shafts of 6m and 6.5m in inner diameter, respectively. The deepest
 overburden is about 750 m. Geological conditions along the tunnel alignment
 are very complicated. Rock formations traversed by the tunnel are highly
 fractured and contain huge reserve of groundwater, rendering engineering
 operation a very difficult task. Since commencement of construction in 1991,
 there had been many serious accidents resulting in much delay to the
 projected progress. Under great effort from all concerned, these seemingly
 insurmountable difficulties were overcome, and opened to the public at June
 2006 after 15-year construction. This tunnel not only can offers travelers high
 quality road service but also greatly reduce the traveling time between Taipei
 and Yilan from 2 hours to 40 minutes.

2. Outline of the Nominated Project
- Project name: Bayu-Undan Development - Phase 1
- Project location: Timor Sea, between Timor-Leste and northern Australia
- Completion date: February 2004
- Description of the project:
The gas field is approximately 500 kilometres north-west of Darwin, and 250
kilometres south of Suai in the newly formed Democratic Republic of
Timor-Leste , ideally situated to meet the growing energy market of the Asia
Pacific region. Bayu-Undan is a world class gas and gas condensate deposit
located some 3,000 meters beneath the Timor Sea in 80 metres of water.
Discovered in 1995, the field measuring 15 kilometres north-south and nearly
30 kilometres east west contains recoverable hydrocarbons estimated at 450
million barrels of condensate and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and 3.4 trillion
cubic feet of natural gas. 1112 Regulatory approval for the project was given in
February 2000 and first gas was processed exactly four years later in February
2004, an exceptional feat given the offshore remoteness and complexity of the
development. Bayu-Undan Phase I was initially planned and approved as a
stand-alone Gas Recycle Project, with emphasis on liquid recovery. However,
in March 2002, a Heads of Agreement was entered into for the sale of LNG to
the Tokyo Electric Power Company and Tokyo Gas Company, leading to the
field being developed in two phases. Phase 1 (the project submitted for this
Engineering Excellence Award) is the US$1.9 billion Gas-Recycle project,
where condensate and natural gas liquids are separated, stored in a
multi-product floating storage off-take vessel and sold via tanker, with the
remaining lean dry gas being reinjected into a subsea reservoir. Approximately
22 wells are required over the life of the project and 13 were drilled in the first

drilling programme. The facility is the most complex liquid stripping plant ever
to be built offshore and the largest investment proposed for the Timor Sea. It
uses cutting edge technology to recover oil and gas that would otherwise be
too costly or difficult to tap.

2. Outline of the Nominated Project
- Project name: Restoration Project from the Niigata-Chuetsu Earthquake
- Project location (city, country): Niigata Prefecture, Japan
- Completion date: December 26, 2005
- Description of the project:
On October 23, 2004, there occurred an epicentral earthquake with a seismic
intensity of 7 in the Chuetsu District of Niigata Prefecture., which caused great
damages on roads and railways. This is the project that attained early
restoration from these damages. Roads: The damages were incurred at more
than 2,000 spots such as the entire road failures on Kanetsu Expressway and
Hokuriku Expressway. In response to this, Niigata Management Office of
NEXCO (Nippon Expressway Co. Ltd.) secured the “emergency traffic roads”
in 19 hours after the disaster occurrence, “opening one lane on one side to the
public” during 13 days, and, after about one month, four lanes were opened to
the public, thus, the early traffic restoration was attained. Railways: The JR
East had the largest damage since its establishment: The Shinkansen bullet
train was derailed for the first time in its history, and the railway structures such
as tunnels, bridges, viaducts, and earth structures received considerable
damage, as well, the Shinkansen and five conventional railway lines were
compelled to stop their operations However, since the earliest possible
restoration of transportation network is one of the most important missions of

2. Outline of the Nomination Project
  - Project name: Technology of movable caisson dam
  - Project location: Mekong delta - Vietnam
  - Completion date: January, 25th 2006
  - Description of the project:
  It is not possible to apply traditional dam technology for irrigation schemes at
  salinity-fresh water demarcation of Mekong delta region because once the
  cropping structure changes, the cost for dismantle these schemes are quite
 high. In that case, temporary soil dam is often built, causing negative impact
 to the environment and cropping. Movable caisson dam technology is
 adopted to meet the duty of saline intrusion prevention, marine transportation,
 environment protection and this type of structure is movable when necessary.
 This new type of dam is firstly designed and successfully applied in Vietnam,
 which brings about high technical and socio-economic efficiency. One of
 essential advantage of movable caisson dam is that it is easy to move to new
 place according the demand of cropping structure and other crucial
 advantages are sustainable, simple operation, quick construction and
 unnecessary to carry out land acquisition with cheap price and benign with
 natural environment. This technology has untied the obstacle of construction
 barrage for tide regions with shrimp-rice cultivation shifting, serving for
 socio-economic development of Mekong delta provinces. Movable caisson
 dam plays a national strategic importance in opening up a new technology in
 construction barrage for tidal regions.

             Report of the ACECC Workshop
   on Harmonization of Design Codes in the Asian Region
 Toward Harmonization of Design Codes in the Asian Region
                       -Overview-

           Committee on ACECC, Japan Society of Civil Engineers


1 The outline of the Asian Civil Engineering Coordinating Council (ACECC)
The Asian Civil Engineering Coordinating Council (ACECC) was established in
1999 for the purpose of civil engineers‟ information exchange, interaction and
contribution to the infrastructure development in the Asian Region, by the
following initial five members: the American Society of Engineers (ASCE), the
Chinese Institute of Civil and Hydraulic Engineering (CICHE), the Korean
Society of Civil Engineers (KSCE), the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers
(PICE), and the Japan Society of Civil Engineers (JSCE). Subsequently,
Engineers Australia (EA), the Vietnam Federation of Civil Engineering
Associations (VIFCEA), and the Mongolian Association of Civil Engineers
(MACE) joined with the above-mentioned five societies, thus the ACECC
currently consists of eight societies/institutions.
  The objectives of ACECC are stipulated in the ACECC Constitution as
follows:

                                             The objectives of ACECC


      1.    To promote and advance the science and practice of Civil Engineering and related professions
            for sustainable developments in the Asian region.

      2.    To encourage communication between persons in charge of scientific and technical
            responsibility for any field of civil engineering.

      3.    To improve, extend and enhance such activities as infrastructure construction and management,
            preservation of the precious environment and natural disaster prevention.

      4.    To foster exchange of ideas among the member societies/institutions.

      5.    To cooperate with any regional, national and international organizations to support their work,
            as the ACECC decides necessary.

      6.    To provide advise to member societies/institutions to strengthen their domestic activities.

      7.    To achieve the above objectives, international conferences called Civil Engineering Conference
Holding the Civil Engineering Conference in the Asian Region (CECAR), which is
            in the Asian Region (CECAR) will be held on a triennial basis as the main activity of the
mentioned in the above Article 7, is one of the main activities of ACECC.
           ACECC.
ACECC organizes CECAR once in three years where experts in the civil
engineering research and technology from industry, government and academia
gather to have discussions about the problems related to civil engineering in the
Asian Region and seek ways to shape the future of Asia. CECAR was held
three times in the past. The 2nd was held in Tokyo, 2001 with about 730
participants, and the 3rd was held in Seoul, 2004, with about 1,000 participants
including about 250 from Japan, and it is gaining increasing attention every time.
The next 4th CECAR is to be held on June 25-28, 2007 in Taipei. Please visit
the following websites for details:

Besides the above-mentioned committees, Awarding Subcommittee,
E-publication Subcommittee has just been organized, and in Taiwan, Local
Organizing Committee is now working for the 4th CECAR.
As shown in the above objectives and organizations, the issues that ACECC is
addressing are quite wide-ranging.



3        ACECC Operational Task


The Planning Committee of ACECC is a committee made up of working-level
people.
In order to promote the ACECC practical activities, the following operational
tasks are assigned to each ACECC member, and JSCE is in charge of
harmonization of design codes in the Asian region.

JSCE has already made a web page which lists all the code formulating
organizations of the ACECC members with the linkage to them:

http://www.acecc.net/modules/tinycontent5/index.php?id=37


It provides a useful means to get the code information at each
member/institution.
   We are fully aware, however, that just providing this kind of information
does not attain our purpose, and that it is very important that engineers who
are working on code formulation exchange information, share common
knowledge and have discussions toward the future. Thus, we planned to hold
a workshop on design codes on November 2006 in Taipei.
   The reasons we decided to have the workshop in Taiwan are: the ACECC
Secretariat is currently located in Taiwan, since the workshop on the
geotechnical codes was scheduled to be held in Taipei the previous day, the
overseas code handling engineers are going to gather for the workshop, and
since Taiwan is situated in a place closer than Tokyo to Southeast Asian
countries that need infrastructure development from now, it will facilitate
engineers from those countries participating in the workshop.



4       Harmonization of design codes in the Asian Region


As is well known, developing countries in the Asian region have various issues
such as urban problems, environmental issues, resource problems and in
addition, disaster prevention issues. In order to address these issues,
infrastructure facilities are now being constructed at high speed.
   Among others, as many of the large-scale construction projects need
advanced technology, in many cases they are put for international biddings in
which enterprises with advanced technology and experiences take part, and as
one project is implemented with multicountry engineers‟ engagements in
design, construction and consulting, in that sense, they are quite international.
   In most of the Asian countries that are going to develop their infrastructure
from now, it can not be said that the design codes for various facilities are well
organized, and as a matter of fact, it is still the case that overseas design
                      th
Minutes of ACECC 14        ECM(Final)       Page 39 of 99               January 20,
2007
codes are applied to a structural design on a case-by-case bases. In other
words, the integration of design codes is far behind the infrastructure
development. It is also true that engineers often get into trouble in
communication with each other due to the difference in the application of
design codes.
   In Japan, since awareness of performance-based design is becoming higher,
various design codes applicable as global standard has been developed and
transmitted internationally in some of the study fields. Much more efforts
were poured into the achievement of mutual understandings and applicability
in different countries/economies. Sharing such experience and information
among ACECC and non-ACECC members is thought to be very meaningful.
   Based on the above mentioned recognition, in order to have a multilateral
discussion on the code formulation, we decided to have a workshop on
harmonization of design codes in the Asian region in Taipei beyond the bounds
of the nations and the study fields for the following objectives:


   a) To share the information on activities and methodologies for
      formulating design codes in each country and make use of them for
        future activities,
   b)   To discuss the direction for the code harmonization in the Asian region.
        As well, to provide a place for discussions in the same vocabulary,
   c)   To transmit to the world the idea about the design code in the Asian
        region as the Asian voice,
   d)   To formulate a basis of codes such as Euro code 0 to comprehend all
        the codes in each field , and
   e)   To decide a direction for the discussion at the 4th CECAR.


The design codes which are used in each country and each organization have
been cultivated in a long history. We know that harmonization of design
codes cannot be achieved overnight. We would like to move a steady but
strategic activity forward based on the discussion made at this workshop.

Toward Harmonization of Design Codes in the Asian Region
           -Summaries of Discussion Session-

              Kenichi Horikoshi, Committee on ACECC, JSCE
                   Yusuke Honjo, Gifu University, Japan



After the reports from each country and the special reports, a discussion
session was provided chaired by Prof. Yusuke Honjo of Gifu University, Japan.
Code harmonization is such a big issue that cannot reach a conclusion in a
one-day workshop. Continuous information exchanges and discussions are
necessary.


Followings are the contents of the discussion session at the workshop.

1) It was recognized that there are a wide variety of design codes in each field
   in each country, which have been influenced by many other countries, such
   as Russia, USA, Europe, and Japan. Although it seems that harmonization
   is not easy, we should realize that we have common natural conditions,
   such as climates, ground types and disasters in the Asian region.

2) As for the code harmonization, we need to differentiate between short-term
   and long-term targets. The short-term target can be to encourage code
   writers in each field to make dialogs, and look for the possibility of
   harmonization. Creating a glossary of terminology may also be a nice step
   for the harmonization.

3) As an immediate target, we will have a special forum of this subject at the
   4th CECAR next June. It may be possible to prepare a report from each
   field, as well as to provide a draft of „Glossary of terminology‟ for the basis
   of design.

4) As for the long-term target, we should learn from the Eurocode experience.
   When the Eurocode project started about 30 years ago, the limit state
   design concept was very new and this concept was a base for the
   harmonization. Therefore, if we try to harmonize design codes in the Asian
   region, a new concept such as „performance based-design‟ or
   „performance based specifications‟ is necessary. Asian concrete model
   code introduced at this workshop can be a pilot model. This model code

                      th
Minutes of ACECC 14        ECM(Final)       Page 43 of 99              January 20,
2007
   has already applied to the performance based-design concept as well as
   multi-level code document.

5) A civil engineering society is not the only body to deal with design codes. It
   is really necessary to exchange information with other professional groups
   such as concrete and steel institutes, and architectural institute.
   Professionals from other bodies should be invited to the ACECC related
   events. At the same time, we should realize the difficulty to reach
   agreements with all the bodies in a short period. However, since the
   documents that a civil engineering society is producing are not legally
   effective, it is possible to start our activities without full agreements by the
   related bodies.

6) Eurocodes are the government-oriented projects and they have close ties
   with European Union. Whereas, the problem is that the engineering
   society has a committee of a certain field with responsibility of related code
   development and it‟s up to the government to authorize them. The
   government has the right for the final decision. Writing up a model
   framework does not imply immediate application of practice of design
   codes.

7) In terms of the code harmonization as the long-term target, flexible
   framework is necessary for further revisions to avoid conflicts. Once we set
   up the initial version of a code, we always have to be aware of the revision
   and modification that should come from needs from individual countries as
   well as the overall region.

8) Clear motivation is badly necessary. Creation of future ISO can be one of
   the motivations for code harmonization. The concrete model code was
   created to fill in the missing parts of the current ISOs, such as
   performance-based concept and maintenance related documents. If other
   codes have already good documentations, it is very difficult to create
   another code of the same parts. Therefore, it is important to identify what is
   the current problem with the ISOs.

9) The situation for ISO 23469, which is applied to seismic design of
   geotechnical works, was slightly different. The basic motivation was that
   most of the top-level experts are not happy with the current design codes.
   They aim to build something that will be adopted as the state of practice in
   the coming decade. The code development is always behind the progress
   of engineering. Therefore, for the general framework of ISO, they should do
                      th
Minutes of ACECC 14        ECM(Final)       Page 44 of 99               January 20,
2007
   something as flexible as possible to accommodate something coming into
   part of design practice.

10) Although the role of the government is very important for code
    harmonization, we should not consider too much about political constrains.
    It is more important to aim at an ideal code that could be a model for newly
    developing codes. This will attract more people and give motivations to
    people working for the harmonization.

11) We believe that discussions at this workshop will be the first step toward
   code harmonization in the Asian Region. This workshop could provide a
   basis for further discussions especially at the 4th CECAR.

1. Objectives

Based on the results of the ACECC Workshop which was held on November 4,
2006 in Taipei:
1) To discuss the necessity toward the harmonization of design code in the
   Asian Region and identify the problems.
2) To look for the possibility of design code that shall be formulated based on
   the common recognition in the Asian Region where natural conditions and
   disaster conditions are similar.
3) To share the information concerning the design code formulation with a
   global perspective beyond the bounds of countries or research fields.

                                     Introduction to

        The World Federation of Engineering Organizations

Founded in 1968 by a group of regional engineering organizations, under the auspices of the
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO) in Paris, the
World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) is a non governmental international
organization that brings together national engineering organizations over 90 nations and
represents some 15 millions engineers from around the world.


WFEO is the world wide leader of the engineering profession and cooperates with national and
other international professional institutions in developing and applying engineering to the
benefit of humanity.


WFEO and UATI (International Union of Technical Associations and Organizations) jointly
created in 1994 the International Council for Engineering and Technology (ICET), one of the
twelve NGOs formally associated with UNESCO.


WFEO, UATI and FIDIC (International Federation of Consultant Engineers) created in 1992
the World Engineering Partnership for Sustainable Development (WEPSD).



Role

       WFEO provides information and leadership to the engineering profession on issues of
        concern to the public or the profession;


       WFEO serves society, and is recognised by national and international organizations
        and the public, as a respected and valuable source of advice and guidance on the
        policies, interests and concerns that relate engineering and technology to the human
        and natural environment;


       WFEO facilitates communication and cooperation among engineering organizations
        and with other organizations particularly those of the UN system and international
        non governmental institutions dealing with science, engineering, technology and
        business;

Minutes of ACECC 14         ECM(Final)             Page 68 of 99                 January 20,
2007
       WFEO fosters peace and promotes sustainable development on a global basis as well
        engineering education and training , the exchange and sharing of technology and
        application of ethics concern and conduct;


       WFEO brings together the developed and the developing nations for mutual benefit;


       WFEO facilitates relationships between governments, business and people by
        contributing an engineering dimension to discussions on policies and investments;


       WFEO is working on the transferability of engineering qualification.



Activities

Most of the technical activities of the Federation are carried out by 6 standing committees,
which cover particular areas of engineering:


       Committee on Education and Training (CET)
       Committee on Engineering and the Environment (CEE)
       Committee on Information and Communication (CIC)
       Committee on Technology(ComTech)
       Committee on Capacity Building (CCB)
       Committee on Energy (CE)


Many projects relating to the professional interests of members are undertaken in cooperation
with other world bodies: those of the UN system (UNESCO, UNEP, UNIDO, UNDP, UNCSD)
as well as the World Bank, the Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological
Sciences (CAETS), the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the International Council for
Sciences (ICSU), the World Business Council for Sustainable Development WEPSD)…



Membership

The Federation consists of National, Regional, or Affiliated Members (one engineering
organization per country), according to specific circumstances, and International Members
(group of national engineering bodies organised on a geographical or other international basis).
Organizations, firms or individuals who wish to interact with the Federation but do not fulfil the
membership conditions are incorporated as Associates.

the Mekong Delta). Upon review of the report, it was observed that the
scope is much broader than that of the original proposal for this TC. In
this light, the report is really not a report of the TC on the Mekong Delta.
Prof. Ang will communicate with Prof. Kusakabe as to his intention with
the TC. If the scope is now very different and much broader than the
original Mekong Delta project, then a proposal for a new TC may be more
appropriate.

3. The JSCE presented the TC report on the “Sumatra Offshore
Earthquake and Indian Ocean Tsunami”. The presentation was a
continuation of the report presented in the morning. After some
discussions and comments from members of ACECC, the Chair thank
JSCE for it comprehensive TC report.

4. The detailed report of TC on “Sustainable Developments in Civil
Engineering” was deferred until the next ECM.

5. Prof. A. Ang presented the report for the TC on “Quantitative Risk
Assessment on behalf of ASCE. The main task of the TC is the
development of the technical material for a tutorial and a workshop on
QRA to be part of the CECAR4 program consisting of two sessions as
follows:
     Session I – Tutorial on the fundamentals for QRA.
     Session II – Workshop on applications of QRA.

The meeting was adjourned by 5:45pm.

The missing two TC activity reports should be submitted to the chair of
TCC within one month.

          Proposal to form the Technical Committee on

   DMAPS Disaster Mitigation and Preparedness Strategies
(Reaffirmed by PICE and reapproved by the TCC for endorsement to the
14th ECM of ACECC on January 20, 2007)

1. Name of TC: Technical Committee on DMAPS Disaster Mitigation and
   Preparedness Strategies

   Purpose of TC: The twin overall objectives of the committee are: (a) to
   develop, compile, and recommend to publish and/or publicize various
   layers of risk maps (i.e., disaster maps, hazard maps, and/or
   vulnerability maps) considering select multiple hazards for the
   Asia-Pacific Region or areas of operation of the ACECC member
   societies; and (b) to develop, compile, harmonize, and recommend to
   publish and/or publicize various comprehensive strategies for
   disaster risk management considering multiple professional
   disciplines for potential practical application in the Asia-Pacific
   Region or areas of operation of the ACECC member societies.

2. Organization:

   Sponsoring member society: PICE (through the PICE International
   Affairs Committee and the PICE National Committee on DMAPS and
   DQRP)

   Participating member societies (expected): American Society of Civil
   Engineers (ASCE), Chinese Institute of Civil and Hydraulic
   Engineering (CICHE), Engineers Australia (IEAust), Japan Society of
   Civil Engineers (JSCE), Korean Society of Civil Engineers (KSCE),
   Mongolian Association of Civil Engineers (MACE), Philippine Institute
   of Civil Engineers (PICE), Vietnam Federation of Civil Engineers
   Association (VIFCEA)

3. Operation Details:

   Duration: 3 years until the 5th CECAR

   Funding sources: initially primarily from PICE, with possible voluntary
   contributions from other ACECC members and potential support from
   the Asian Development Bank and/or World Bank

   Method and frequency of meetings: organizational meetings within
   PICE or hosted by PICE; otherwise all communications through
   emails or internet discussion groups
                      th
Minutes of ACECC 14        ECM(Final)       Page 92 of 99          January 20,
2007
   Actual tasks: The two main tasks are: (a) the systematic development,
   compilation, and preparation for recommended presentation of
   multimedia forms of various layers of risk maps that may be allowed
   by their originators and the authorities to be used as standard tools in
   planning, together with the organization of a workshop (as part of, or
   in conjunction with, the 5th CECAR) whereby both the origin of the risk
   maps and the use of the risk maps may be better appreciated by more
   practitioners; and (b) the virtual networking of practitioners and
   researchers in the multi-disciplinary field of disaster risk management,
   together with the organization of a workshop (as in the above)
   whereby practical national and/or international strategies of
   comprehensive disaster risk management may be documented and
   compared.

   PICE through its national committee on DMAPS and DQRP has, by
   example, initiated this approach locally by actively interfacing with
   other local professional societies, NGOs and government agencies.
   PICE will initiate the development of a proposal to the ADB or WB
   specifically for this TC as an undertaking of ACECC, with the
   cooperation of other interested member societies; such proposal will
   be circulated among the representatives of member societies for their
   inputs prior to submitting to the ADB and/or WB. The specific hazards
   and the specific geographic areas to be covered will be proposed by
   the participating member societies.

4. Expected Outcomes: The main products of the TC will be a
   compilation of various layers of national and/or international risk
   maps and a compilation of various national and/or international
   strategies for comprehensive risk management, both preferably (as
   may be allowed by their originators and the authorities) with the
   benefit of concerted presentation (in workshops) and detailed
   documentation (in multimedia).
