Concrete Code AS 3600 - 2018 Review of Changes
Kirribilli Club, Lavender Bay
Wednesday 19 February 2019
5:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The latest version of the Concrete Structures code, AS 3600, was published in 2018. It contains substantial review of existing sections as well as new sections added.
Concrete Institute of Australia will be holding a seminar to discuss and review the changes and additions to the code, and how these will come into play in practice.
Attendance is strongly recommended for all involved in the design of concrete structures or supply of concrete products.
New sections include:
- Design for Earthquake Actions.
- Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete.
- Design for Fatigue.
Sections with substantial new content include:
- Material properties
- Strength reduction factors.
- Design for shear and torsion.
- Fire design
- Design for shrinkage, creep and deflections
- Crack control & new provision for assessing crack widths
- These changes provide opportunities for the use of new materials and improved efficiency in design, but also different analysis, design, and detailing procedures for almost all structures.
