Concrete In Australia : June 2011
18 Concrete in Australia Vol 37 No 2 NEWS PROJECTS Silver Members Standards Recent activities of the Standards Committees with which the Concrete Institute of Australia (the Institute) has an active involvement, include: BD-002: Concrete Structures There was a general agreement that within two years of the publication of AS 3972-2010 General purpose and blended cements, the allowable proportions of mineral additions within general purpose cement would be reviewed to allow for the optimum level proven by additional testing. Standards Australia wrote to organisations represented on the BD-010 Committee inviting them to take part in a working group to continue the discussion and reach agreement on the optimum amount of mineral additions in general purpose cement. The Institute looks forward to being able to contribute to the working group and participate in continuing discussions, designing and reviewing results of testing programs established. BD-066: Tiltup Construction A meeting of BD-066 was held during April 2011, whereby the committee was in the initial stages of reviewing and updating key sections of AS 3850. The Institute’s reference group of BD-066 provided the nominated representative Simon Hughes with comments that were able to be brought into discussion at the meeting. The Institute will continue to have significant input into the revision of the standard and looks forward to keeping members informed of key progress. BD-010 Working Group: A BD-010 Working Group, a group whereby Nominating Organisations of BD-010 are continuing the discussion and Update on Concrete Institute Technical Projects
