IStructE Technical Meeting: Seismic Design of Bridges in Australia

Displacement-based seismic design to AS5100.2: 2017 – simplified by Bruce Gibbens – Principal Bridge Engineer, BG&E Melbourne

The presentation with include the method’s empirical basis and a comparison of force-based and displacement-based design methods.

An introduction to:

  • Non-linear push-over analysis.

  • Capacity-protection and ‘over-strength’ design.

  • Performance-based design.

  • Avoiding brittle failure.

Special Technical Presentation: The Enduring Appeal of Precast Concrete

Special Technical Presentation: The Enduring Appeal of Precast Concrete

Precast concrete is well known as a strong and durable structural engineering material. Often, precast concrete plays an excellent supporting structure role. However, it also has the capability of being the main attraction of the building or structure. Sydney has had its iconic Opera House for 45 years, and Perth has just welcomed what is surely a wonderful piece of architectural precast concrete at the Cadogan Song School.

John will present the essential lessons derived from his engineering work on this project.

George will present his experience as a local artisan tasked with producing the final product.

Dynamic Loading and Response of Structures Workshop

Understanding structural dynamics is crucial to the engineering design of structures to withstand severe environmental conditions.

This one-day workshop is aimed at transferring knowledge and skills to civil and structural engineers on the fundamentals and practical applications of structural dynamics analysis techniques in support of the design of structures to withstand rare dynamic actions including that of an earthquake.

IStructE Technical Meeting: 7th of August, 2017

Since the publication of the previous Bridge Design Standard, AS 5100, in 2004 there has been real advances in both design and construction methods and in materials technology. The various Australian Standard sub-committees have responded to this in preparing the new AS 5100, published in late March this year.
