Speaker : Mr. Michael (Mike) Griew M.Sc., Senior Mechatronics Researcher at the Halpin Centre, National Maritime College of Ireland

Synopsis:
With ink on the Irish Aviation Authority's recently published drone usage regulations now dry and with aircraft technology and data processing software rapidly reaching maturity, a well-defined landscape is forming. In this informal review the speaker will examine unmanned aircraft technology and data processing software in the context of civil Engineering, brushing aside media hype and manufacturers' claims to examine the technology's usefulness in real-life. After documenting his own journey in this field and briefly overviewing drone regulations and their implications for would-be operators, patterns that have emerged as this technology matured in recent years will be analysed and used to cast predictions for its future development.

 07/03/2017 In the footsteps of Columbus, European Missions to the International Space Station
Speaker: John O Sullivan Engineering Director at Douglas Control and Automation

The European Space Agency has a long history of human spaceflight, flying in space with both NASA and the Soviet/Russian space agencies over the years. ESA contributions to the International Space Station include the Columbus science laboratory, the Copula, the Leonardo PMM and the ATV supply, but it is the human endeavour that captures the imagination. From brief visits to six month expeditions, from spacewalking to commanding the Earths only outpost in space, ESA astronauts have played a vital role in the international project.
This talk is based on Johns 2016 book of the same name. It tells the story of the ESA astronauts who have visited the International Space Station over its first decade and how they have lived on board, helped construct the space laboratory and performed valuable scientific experiments.

 01/02/2017 Moneypoint and Irelands low carbon future

CORK REGION MEMBERS....

Note that this event will also be webcast at the Environmental Research Institute, Lee Road UCC. All are welcome.

Speaker: Dr Shane O Sullivan, ESB

Abstract:
Moneypoint Power Station is the Republic of Ireland’s only coal burning power station and is one of the largest power plants on the electricity system. For the last 30 years, the station has provided affordable, secure and reliable electricity to Irish consumers. However, Moneypoints high emissions of CO2 mean that it cannot continue to generate electricity in its current configuration in the long term.

ESB has examined the technologies available to decarbonise the Irish electricity system and is currently undertaking a detailed study on the technical, economic and sustainability issues associated with converting Moneypoint to biomass fuel.

 22/11/2016 A remote measurement and mapping technique for orderly rapid aggregation of building stock geometry
Speaker: Mr. James Pittam

"Selecting Properties for Energy Retrofitting Measures"


Synopsis: Traditional surveying of building façades through direct measurement are time consuming and expensive to carry out. Replacing direct measurement methods with a remote method allows for the rapid extraction of façade information. The aim of the this research is to remove the need for physical site surveys and to develop a Remote Cataloguing, Measurement and Mapping method to extract façade and roof geometry data to support the construction of detailed 2-D AutoCAD drawings and Sketch-up 3-D models. The RCMM uses photogrammetric techniques through the use of static panoramic viewports from Google Street View© and aerial spot images from Google Earth©.

 11/02/2016 Processing capacity expansion in the Dairy Industry: A Kerry Ingredients Case Study

Time: 19:30

Joint event with Ag & Food Division, SDT

The abolition of EU milk quotas last April, has resulted in an increase of approx. 10 % in milk intake by Irish milk processors for the nine months to the end of December thus the forecasted 50% increase in milk production by 2020 could be realised if this momentum is maintained.

Irish milk processors have been engaged in strategic planning in relation to expansion in processing capacity for several years and some major expansion projects have already been completed while others are due for completion later this year and in subsequent years.

Kerry Ingredients is one of the “big 4” milk processors in Ireland processing 1,100 million litres of milk per annum into casein, cheese, butter, milk powders and dairy ingredients at its Listowel, Charleville and Newmarket sites. With the kind support of Kerry Ingredients, this symposium, which is jointly organised by the Southern Ireland Section of the Society of Dairy Technology and Engineers Ireland (Cork Regions and the Agricultural & Food Engineering Division), will focus on the business imperatives and engineering aspects of the recently completed expansion project at the Charleville site.

The opening paper by Mr Jim Lee, Operations Director Kerry, will give an overview of the project from a strategic business perspective. This will be followed by Mr. Pat Brosnan, Engineering Projects Manager Kerry, who will give an overview of the engineering aspects of design, construction and project management of the plant.

Registration for the Workshop is confined to the Membership of the SDT & Engineers Ireland and free of charge thanks to the generous support of Kerry Ingredients and UCC. However, advance registration is obligatory (booking details to follow).

 09/02/2016 Cape Clear Storm Gates
Speakers: Mr. John Norris, Malone O’Regan Consulting Engineers and Mr. Richard Browne, L+M Keating

Time: 18:30 for Tea/Coffee – Lecture starts at 19:00

Synopsis: The presentation will demonstrate the novel approach taken to the design and construction of the new automated storm gate harbour entrance to Cape Clear Harbour. It will detail how engineering challenges associated with underwater and overwater building works on Ireland’s most southerly inhabited island were overcome through novel design and temporary works. As part of the works, the 1000t concrete storm gate lock chamber was constructed in Cobh Dock Yard and towed over 100km to Cape Clear Island. The presentation will highlight the challenge of ensuring that this 15m x 15m x 9m high 1000t chamber ‘arrived on the right day, at the right stage of the right tide, with the right weather conditions to slot the chamber into exactly the right spot in a two hour tidal window’. The complete CE marked solution includes two 30t steel gate leaves actuated by 140t hydraulic rams and electric powered HPU’s controlled by one central computerised control panel.

 01/12/2015 Life and Times of William Dargan
Speaker: Fergus Mulligan

Time: 18:30 for Tea/Coffee – Lecture starts at 19:00

William Dargan was born in 1799 the son of a County Carlow farmer. He began working in Wales on the Holyhead road under Thomas Telford in 1819. As a Contractor he went on to build Roads, Railways, Canals and Reservoirs as well as developing Hotels and the resort towns of Portrush and Bray. He constructed the first commercial railway in Ireland from Dublin to what is now Dún Laoghaire. During the great famine he employed upwards of 50,000 men on major infrastructural projects throughout the country. He paid a fair wage, generous for the time, which allowed them to have a decent standard of living. Between 1846 and 1850 he constructed the GS&W Railway from Thurles to Cork including the tunnel through Blackpool and the Cork Blackrock & Passage Railway. William was a dynamic, engaging, bibulous figure, whose formidable abilities created the infrastructure for modern Ireland, where there is scarcely a town untouched by his genius. Williams Dargan’s story is that of a true patriot and honourable man who lived and worked for his country and its people.
This lecture will cover the achievements of one of Ireland’s greatest Engineers, with a particularly focus on his legacy in Cork.

 09/11/2015 Functional Safety (IEC 61508 and IEC 61511)
Speaker: Dil Wetherill, Risknowlogy

The presentation will provide an overview of two important standards for managing hazards in process and other industries. Key concepts such as Functional Safety Management, Competency, Assessment, Verification and Validation will be discussed and the safety lifecycle will be reviewed, so that the responsibilities for various players in a typical project (design contractors, systems integrators, end users) can be understood. The legal status of the standards will also be explained.

The standards being presented are complex and detailed - but they are based on a simple risk based approach, married to sound engineering practices. The presentation will focus on describing these basic elements so that the requirements of the standards can be seen in context of the overall approach.

This lecture will be of interest to automation, mechanical and process engineers, and anyone else involved in the implementation of automated safety systems.

Time: 18:30 for Tea/Coffee – Lecture starts at 19:00

 06/10/2015 Site visit to Pfizer Solvent Recovery Unit in Ringaskiddy
Pfizer Ringaskiddy`s solvent recovery plant was completely renovated in 2007 with the replacement of the existing columns by three new stills as part of a full set of 8 distillation modules onsite. The plant recovers solvent for both the Pfizer Ringaskiddy and Little Island sites. The columns may be operated in batch or semi-batch mode, and over a year 12 different separations are undertaken. These range from simple distillations to azeotropic separations. An unusual characteristic of the Ringaskiddy units is a dual column arrangement that allows recovery of either or both the light or heavy solvent as a pure product stream. This visit is an opportunity to see what is perhaps the largest and most complicated solvent recovery facility in Ireland.

Time: 14:00

Time: 18:30 for Tea/Coffee – Lecture starts at 19:00

Topic:

Dalys Bridge is a historic steel suspension footbridge in Ireland, known locally as the ‘Shaky Bridge’ for its noticeable movement under pedestrian loading. Daly’s bridge has been instrumented and tested recently for static and dynamic responses and a model of the bridge has been established in the process. The talk will focus on this modelling and testing. Video analysis and a new signal processing technique have been successfully applied to this bridge to identify its natural frequency. The study highlights the complexity and importance of full scale testing with good models and signal processing techniques for pedestrian bridge structures

Speaker: Owen Gaffney, Director of Communications, International Geosphere Biosphere Programme, Stockholm

Time: 18:30 for Tea/Coffee – Lecture starts at 19:00

Summary:

There is now overwhelming evidence that humanity’s impact on the planet is on the scale of great geological forces. This is changing Earth’s life support system in profound ways. Scientists now argue that humans have pushed Earth into a new geological epoch – the Anthropocene. Climate is perhaps the greatest challenge facing civilization. Societies must decarbonise to avoid the worst consequences. But they must also adapt to inevitable change.
Nations have agreed to a global target of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-Industrial times. What will it take to meet this target? This lecture will discuss the concept of the Anthropocene, the imperative to act and potential solutions, including geoengineering – large-scale interference in the global climate system.

 24/04/2014 Inspiring Change: Promoting engineering as a career choice for girls
Time 18:00

About the event:

44% of secondary school students believe that STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) are more suited to males than females.

What’s more, a lack of female role models in this sector contributes to these negative perceptions. (ref..Accenture, Powering economic growth: Attracting more young women into science and technology, 2014)


Help STEPS change that by volunteering to visit girls’ schools and talk about the opportunities open to them in engineering.

This workshop is aimed at, but not exclusive to, female engineers and will:

a) provide resources for presenting to a student audience and delivering hands-on activities;

b) advise on best practice in communicating with a primary or post primary audience;

c) look at the particular needs of female students and how to address these;

d) support discussion and networking with your peers;

e) outline how volunteers are matched with suitable schools and help to arrange your visit.

To register your attendance...

This workshop is free of charge, however please email Margot Kenny at mkenny@engineersireland.ie to reserve your place.

 22/04/2014 Conferring of Registered Titles and Persidential Address
Speaker: Engineers Irleland President Dr. John O Dea

Time 20:00

ALL WELCOME

Presentation of Certificates to successful recipients of Fellow of the Institution (FIEI), Chartered Engineer (CEng MIEI), Associate Engineer (AEng MIEI) and Engineering Technician (EngTech MIEI)

Presidential Address Synopsis:

In his address President John O Dea will explore Irelands role in the thriving medical devices sector. The industry last year represented over €6.5bn of exports from Ireland (second only to Germany), and employs 26,000 people. John has always had a great love of medicine, and having chosen engineering as a career in 1980, has come to appreciate how working in this industry affords the best of both worlds, having the ability to better the healthcare of many more patients than one could ever hope to encounter in medical practice.

Irish engineers play a vital role in working with physicians to develop and mature ideas into commercial reality. Medical device innovation needs both disciplines to work together, traversing the route from bedside to bench to bedside. A central theme of Johns presidency is highlighting the role the engineer plays in improvements in healthcare.

With 15 of the worlds top 25 multinational healthcare companies based in Ireland, employing many engineers, it is fair to say that the new medical device technologies that will benefit patients in the next decade are already at advanced stages of manufacturing start-up around the country innovating in a variety of areas such as stroke management, cancer treatment, orthopaedics and surgery.

Energy & Environment Division

Lecture by Michael Walsh, Chief Executive Officer, Irish Wind Energy Association (IWEA)

IWEA recently commissioned a study on the impact of wind on the Single Electricity Market, and specifically on the wholesale price of electricity and the level of the Public Service Obligation (PSO). The work looks at the impact of different levels of installed wind in 2011, 2015 and 2020. It estimates the change in System Marginal Price and in the revenues and
market share of all SEM generation classes.

This lecture will outline the results of the study and enable people to understand the impact of wind on the SEM market and vice versa. It will also provide a good overview of how the market dynamics could evolve over time and how the support systems for wind will impact on the PSO.

The lecture will be made available live by WebEx on the Engineers Ireland website www.engineersireland.ie . For password details please contact Jim Gannon, Chairman, Energy and Environment Division: jim.gannon@rpsgroup.com

Contact: John Lapthorne (021) 4871026

Our Annual Dinner will be held in Maryborough House Hotel on Friday the 12th February. This is the highlight of our year and we are hoping that as many of our members will attend as possible.

Please note that this Dinner is for all members (and their business guests) and not simply for those attending as part of corporate groups. The only stipulation is that this is a Dinner and not a Dinner Dance, and is intended for members and their guests more so than their partners. Every effort will be made to accommodate those who attend.

This is an ideal opportunity to have mini-reunions of classmates and the organising committee would be pleased to facilitate such arrangements where we can.
