The Victoria Branch is repeating the AS 3600 event to inform and update those who missed out.

This new session will progress the discussion based on questions from our members as well as revise the material from the October event.


AS 3600-2009 has been revised and recently released as AS 3600-2018.

Some important updates have been included particularly in relation to:
  • Shear and Torsion design, including updates in compression shear theory, the interaction of shear and torsion together and clarification of requirements for detailing of flexural reinforcement for shear and torsion.
  • Durability design where a rigorous review was made of the durability information provided in the standard.
The Concrete Institute of Australia Victorian Branch is hosting a technical evening on the 20th November 2018 at the Melbourne City Bowls Club, Flagstaff Gardens.

Join us to hear first-hand information from BD-02 committee members and the Concrete Institute of Australia reference group (AS 3600), with a valuable opportunity to ask questions to the panel in relation to the new AS 3600 Standard.
