REINFORCEMENT DETAILING

National Seminar Series - June-July 2014


Detailing of reinforcement is the interface between the actual design of the concrete structure and what is to be constructed. 

Detailing is important for durability, as poor placement of reinforcement leads to insufficient cover and long-term problems.

This one-day course will provide necessary guidance on the basic requirements for clear and concise detailing. The comprehensive program will offer guidance to ensure that the reinforcing provided on site corresponds with designer's expectations.

Australian Standards Online

The Concrete Institute of Australia is pleased to provide access to Standards Online – a low cost service available to Individual Members of the Institute.

The Institute recognises that its Individual Members generally only need to refer to a standard for their work. To save them the time and expense of maintaining an extensive standards library – especially of standards they may need as a one-off, the CIA has worked with SAI Global to provide this reference only service – which could provide to be invaluable for many of our Individual Members who are self employed consultants, among with many of our other Individual Members who will benefit from the service.

This service has been specially developed to enable Concrete Institute of Australia to provide a comprehensive standards reference service to Individual Members, at a fraction of the cost of the full SAI Global on-line subscription service.

Subscribers to the service can also purchase PDF and hardcopy standards at a discounted rate of 20% off the retail price (this offer excludes already discounted packages such as Reusable Electronic Contracts).

The annual cost to subscribe to this service is $220.00 (Incl. GST).

Joint Membership with the American Concrete Institute (ACI)


Joint CIA-ACI Membership is available to new and existing CIA Individual, Individual Young and Retired Members.

ACI Membership is available through the CIA for the annual fee of $145.00. This represents a significant saving as direct Individual Membership of the ACI is normally US$222.00.
