Fastenings to concrete are often poorly understood by designers with many relying on ‘data tables’ published by anchor suppliers. However, comprehensive design guidelines for post-installed and cast-in anchors are now available through Standards Australia TS 101:2015 and shortly, in EN 1992-4.Read More
AS 1379 Specification and Supply of Concrete in Section 1.6.4 Special-Class Concrete covers concrete other than normal class concrete.Read More
Concrete is the most commonly used construction material in the world, so it follows that understanding the properties of this highly versatile material should be at the top of every structural engineer's priority list. This presentation will explain how the properties of concrete can change due to its constituent materials, influence of commonly added materials such as fly ash and admixtures and the practicalities of producing and placing concrete to achieve the specified design strength.Read More
This event, sponsored jointly by the Victorian Local Associations of the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers (Australia Division – Victoria State Group), will be in three parts and registration is essential.Read More
After 40 years of research in the development and placement of fibres in reinforced concrete, the concept has matured to the stage where it is finding increasing use in practice. This seminar will provide the current state of practice for design and construction of steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) and in the use ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) in structures.
This presentation will outline the background behind the proposed joint Australian/New Zealand standard for composite steel-concrete buildings. The standard has commenced drafting and currently has three subcommittees working on composite slabs...Read More
Detailing of the structural elements and the connections between them, perhaps more than any other single factor, decides the success or failure of a concrete structure...Read More
