Reinforced Concrete Design Workshop (Advanced)
3.00 - 3.30 Afternoon Tea
3.30 - 5.00
Session 4 - Advanced Design of
Detailed Connections (GC)
This presentation provides guidance and best practice
advice covering the prequalification, design, selection and
installation of post-installed and cast-in anchors. It also covers
comparisons between current practice in Australia, such as
the work being undertaken by the Australian Engineered
Fastener and Anchor Council (AEFAC), and internationally
such as the Guidelines for European Technical Approval
(ETAG) and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).

The Workshop
This course will address reinforced concrete at an
ADVANCED level for areas not necessarily covered by
AS3600-2009. There are four (4) sessions over the full
day workshop. The workshop is a continuation of the
Reinforced concrete design workshop - “Intermediate
Level” conducted by CCS. This workshop is designed
for engineers who understand the basics of reinforced
concrete design to AS3600-2009 but now wish to hone
their skills to an ‘advanced’ level. It also covers specialized
areas of concrete design that are not covered adequately
in AS3600-2009.
All sessions will provide worked examples, tutorial
exercises and solutions.
8.30 - 9.00
9.00 - 10.30
Session 1 - Flexural ductility and
moment redistribution (SR)
Flexural ductility is valuable because it ensures that a flexural
failure will not occur suddenly or without warning, and it
enables moment redistribution in statically indeterminate
structures. This presentation describes procedures to quantify
the flexural ductility of reinforced concrete sections, and
procedures to calculate the related moment redistribution that
can be achieved in statically indeterminate structures. The
simplified requirements of AS3600 for moment redistribution
are reviewed and procedures are described for explicit
calculations of moment redistribution effects.
Tutorial exercises and solutions will follow.
10.30 - 11.00 Morning Tea
11.00 - 12.30
Session 2 - Refined deflection
calculations to account for creep
and shrinkage effects (SR)
This presentation describes refined deflection calculation
procedures using transformed section analyses based on
effective elastic moduli to account for creep and shrinkage
effects. These procedures are reasonably straightforward
and practicable, and they produce a level of refinement that
is consistent with the limitations of theoretical creep and
shrinkage models. The limitations of the theoretical models
and the associated uncertainties are also described.
Tutorial exercises and solutions will follow.
12.30 - 1.30 Lunch (Provided at venue)
1.30 - 3.00
Session 3 - Reinforced concrete
detailing for seismic resistance (SR)
This presentation describes the fundamental differences
between the structural design rationale to withstand
earthquakes and the design rationale to withstand other types
of structural loading. The importance of structural ductility
is explained with reference to observations from the recent
Christchurch earthquakes, and critical aspects of reinforced
concrete detailing are described and compared with common
Australian practice.
Tutorial exercises and solutions will follow.
