Concrete In Australia : March 2011
Concrete in Australia Vol 37 No 1 13 National Seminar Series: Reinforcement detailing -- Getting it right e first program for 2011 in the Concrete Institute of Australia's National Seminar Series will be a one day course on Reinforcement Detailing -- Getting it Right scheduled to be delivered across Australia throughout March and May 2011. ree eminent engineers who are experts in this subject matter, David Beal, John Woodside and Steve Freeman, have developed and will deliver this one-day program. is course will provide necessary guidance on the basic requirements for clear and concise detailing. e comprehensive program will offer guidance to ensure that the reinforcing provided on site corresponds with designer's expectations. Attendees will be presented with practical limitations of construction and stepped through fundamental detailing principles and provisions. is is intended to facilitate awareness that aids in limiting confusion between the design and construction teams, decreasing costs associated with the material supply, highlighting correct placement and reducing unacceptable levels of dispute. is learning is essential for all designers, those in drafting and a must for younger engineers -- as detailing is currently not a formal part of undergraduate core subjects, yet fundamental to the proper design, detailing and construction of reinforced concrete structures. All three presenters are recognised leaders of the industry and highly respected life and honorary members of the institute. Course materials include an in-depth set of lecture notes together with a complimentary copy of the Concrete Institute of Australia's Reinforcement Detailing Handbook -- which has been based upon the Australian Concrete Structures Standard AS 3600:2009. e program has been structured in a manner to ensure maximum benefit to attendees that will enable them to walk away with outcomes which can be directly applied in practice. Full program details and registration can be found on the website www. concreteinstitute.com.au or on the event site https://events.concreteinstitute.com. au/nat11detailing. Together with Engineers Australia and the Steel Reinforcement Institute of Australia -- our supporting partners, the institute aims to deliver a thorough program that addresses all the necessary considerations regarding detailing of reinforcement. Members of the supporting partners attend the seminars at the discount member rates. e institute would like to encourage all our company members, and companies in industry to support their younger engineers to attend this important seminar to acquire practical and necessary skills that are often not fully covered in academic programs, yet desperately needed within their current work practices. Program Outline e National Seminar Series: Reinforcement Detailing -- Getting it Right will include information on the following: 1. REINFORCEMENT SUPPLY A detailed overview of: • History of Reinforcement • Current Product Overview -- Bar and Mesh • Manufacturing Reinforcement • Certification. 2.
