AME004  |  Green Building Materials

This technology offer highlights the materials achievements designed for Green Building applications. Such applications require not only the design of new materials but also involve incorporating the materials into material systems (such as stacks). By incorporating these materials onto existing building, automotive or structures, enhancement in energy rejection functions can be achieved.

AME071  |  Grid Structures and Methods for Determining Cutting Schemes

This invention comprises a method for creating double-walled gridshell structures out of any curved line network composed of regular/irregular n-gons, such that all beam and joint elements of the structure can be fabricated with only two-dimensional cutting. Existing methods for double-curvature gridshells rely on either complex joints between gridshell elements or complex edge elements that require 3-dimensional fabrication technology. The method transforms any curved line network into a gridshell structure. Structural support systems can be created for curved line networks using simple 2-dimensional (2D) cutting technology, making double-curved gridshell structures accessible to a wider audience at a lower cost.

USS046  |  Aerogel Super Insulator for Green Building Applications

The building sector offers significant potential for improved energy efficiency through the use of high-performance insulation and energy-efficient systems. It is estimated that up to 80% of a building’s energy consumption can be saved. A building envelope is the separation between the interior and the exterior environments of a building. It serves as the outer shell to protect the indoor environment as well as to facilitate its climate control. Aerogels are ultra-light, highly porous and highly-thermal insulating materials. Because of their unique combination of properties, aerogels are being considered for applications as varied as thermal and sound insulation for buildings.

USS047  |  Nano Glass Coating for Green Building Applications

In the tropical region, buildings are under hot climate and constant exposure to high level of solar radiation all year round. As such, a huge amount of electric energy is spent to cool down buildings. Therefore, there is a high demand by industrial and residential consumers to effectively reduce the effects of solar radiation to the indoor ambient temperature. This technology presents a nano glass coating formulation that prevents the solar heat from entering the buildings through the glass windows. With the application of this technology, the temperature is expected to be reduced by up to 8 – 9°C.

USS049  |  Ultra-high Performance Cement Composite with Carbon Fibre Reinforcement

Ultra-High Performance Cement Composite (UHPCC) has been rapidly developed and showed exceptional potential to improve infrastructure performance in the past few decades. UHPCC enables the industry to “build more with less”, as it significantly reduces the amount of concrete required, thus saving space, energy and manpower. This technology presents a new generation of carbon fibre reinforced UHPCC. It can be applied to construct buildings and civil engineering works with enhanced energy-efficiency, environmental friendliness, sustainability, and resilience. The potential market value is huge as this advanced material is aligned with the Singapore Government in its promotion of urban sustainability.
