Overview

Part A:  Joint Management for Industrial and Residential Floors and External Concrete Pavements 
This presentation will discuss the issues that need to be considered when designing a slab on ground.  Items that will be covered include design methodology, industry Standards and Guidelines, types of joints, joint spacing, saw cutting and crack inducers, bar chairs, curing and other factors that affect overall performance of the slab.
 
Part B:  Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete Floors and Pavements – Thinner and More Durable
Concrete floors and pavements must be of sufficient thickness to be able to withstand various types of loadings, ranging from dynamic wheel loads applied by heavy vehicles to distributed loading from stacked materials.  The main objective of thickness design is to ensure satisfactory performance of the floor and pavement by preventing excessive flexural, fatigue and bearing stresses and preventing undesirable settlement, movement and cracking.
 
This presentation gives some basic principles governing the structural and joint design of internal and external SFRC floors and pavements for residential, commercial and industrial applications. It will also cover designs and specification to minimise undesirable movement and cracking defects to floors and pavements.
