Concrete In Australia : September 2009
2 Concrete in Australia Vol 35 No 3 FROM THE PRESIDENT Thankyou to Institute staff and supportive members is issue of Concrete in Australia is the first to contain peer- reviewed papers. It is also the first issue to contain a theme or main feature - in this case, the background to the development of the long awaited revision of AS 3600, with three peer-reviewed technical papers discussing the significant engineering design implications of the new standard. Professor Bob Warner of the University of Adelaide discusses the background to the new standard. Professor Ian Gilbert of UNSW examines the changes to development length and lapped splice length for deformed bars in tension and restrictions on using Class L reinforcement, and Professor Stephen Foster of UNSW examines the detailing of high strength concrete columns in the new standard. e contributions to this special coverage on AS 3600 from these three eminent academics, in just a short space of time, were made possible by the enthusiasm and dedication of our Editorial Committee Convenor Jay Sanjayan. Jay also arranged and managed the peer review process. e theme around AS 3600 is also timely, as the revised edition will be one of the three main topics to be discussed at the Technical Forum of Concrete Solutions 09 in Sydney in September. is issue of Concrete in Australia also has an interesting article on the behaviour of steel and synthetic fibres in concrete, sourced from a translation of a paper by French researcher Pierre Rossi in the March issue of Béton Magazine and an article on the New Perth Bunbury Highway project in Western Australia. For the next (December) issue of Concrete in Australia we intend to include a feature on "Cracking in Concrete". Contributions in the form of technical and project-related papers, including new product submissions on this subject will be welcomed. Please see opposite for details relating to the submission of papers. As my term as President comes to a close in September, may I take this opportunity to thank our new CEO Graeme Burns and the Institute s staff, all Councillors, Branch Committee members, and the many individuals within the Institute and the concrete industry in general, for the support and encouragement they have given me over the past two years. My best wishes are extended to Fred Andrews- Phaedonos and Liza O Moore as they step into the roles of President and Vice-President respectively. Tony Kinlay President, Concrete Institute of Australia firstname.lastname@example.org e revised AS 3600 will be a main topic for discussion at the Concrete Solutions 09 Technical Forum Concrete Institute of Australia Office contact details National and NSW Branch Suite 2B, Level 2, 9 Blaxland Road Rhodes, NSW 2138 PO Box 3157.
