Overview

With the Building Industry in the media limelight recently, the sudden collapse and failure of concrete structures puts even more pressure on building practitioners at every level, particularly when they can be prevented or appropriate measures can be included in the design to reduce the risk.


The Concrete Institute of Australia's September Seminar "Extreme Events" is aimed at providing designers, contractors and asset owners with an overview to understanding the causes of collapse, provide solutions to prevent sudden collapse and to look at other controls that can be included to reduce or stop dangerous outcomes from extreme events.


The seminar will include a detailed look at the areas that are at the heart of ensuring robust concrete structures are designed and built in this country, and they will be presented by pre-eminent experts in these fields.


If you have any enquiries please contact Gayle Townsend on 0459 590 044 or [email protected].

Topics

Dr Cristian Maluk, The University of Queensland
Fire-Induced Concrete Spalling – The End of the Beginning
Cristian’s presentation will cover the state of the art in our understanding of spalling suffered by concrete structures during fire. It is widely known that certain types of modern concretes and certain concrete structures applications have a higher propensity for concrete spalling during or even after a fire. Cristian’s talk will describe typical engineering design and construction tools for accounting for the risk of concrete spalling during fire (in buildings and tunnel applications), and how new studies are aiming at tackling some of the scientific and industry challenges.
