In July 2019 the Concrete Institute of Australia, along with the Steel Reinforcement Institute of Australia, will present a seminar titled “Essential Steel Reinforcing Properties for Design & Detailing”. The seminar will take delegates through the journey of steel reinforcement changes over time, the impact this has had on design and construction, and why it is important for modern-day engineers to know what is in our structures

The seminar will then look at current Standards, AS/NZS 4671 and AS 3600, and update delegates on changes to these codes with respect to reinforcing steels and the impact these will have on design. It will also look at items to consider when assessing old structures that were designed using the working stress theory. Case studies will show how to approach this assessment. 

Following this, there will be a session on detailing, not only referring to current day steel reinforcement and practice but reviewing what has been historically and how this can impact modifications and changes of use. Various Case studies will be used to explain this, and there will also be an opportunity for a detailed Q&A session at the end

  • The history of steel reinforcement in Australia and its impact on current day practice
  • Review of AS/NZS-4671 updates and how these tie into the new AS 3600
  • Detailing and good site practice, providing design examples
  • Case studies of old existing structures and how these should be approached from an engineering point of view
  • Attendees will be able to view a hard copy and place an order from SRIA the new Guide to Historical Steel Reinforcement in Australia, 2019.
The seminar will also include a forum involving locally based practicing engineers, who will come together to answer questions, consider concerns, and provide clarity.

At the conclusion of the seminar, delegates will be invited to network over refreshments.
