About the project 

This workshop presents a summary of R&D activities conducted at Nanyang Technological University on the Competitive Research Program (CRP) “Underwater infrastructure and underwater city of the future” awarded by National Research Foundation (NRF), 2010.

The objectives of the project are to develop an approach to use underwater structures for land and space creation and the related innovative technologies that can be adopted for the design and construction of the underwater structures.

The project comprises mainly three research teams in the areas of:

  • Structural design and new construction materials
  • Geotechnical consideration and new soil improvement and foundation methods
  • Hydrodynamic consideration
