Steel Reinforcement Institute of Australia (SRIA) – ‘AS 3600 structural integrity reo, fitment options & high strength reinforcing steel’
SRIA will highlight some of the most recent market issues discovered in the design and detailing of structural integrity reinforcement and also fitment options in AS 3600:2018. A recent reinforcing steel technical enquiry concerning approval of the 14 mm diameter non-compliant imported reinforcement will be examined along with simple SRIA recommendations to demonstrate conforming materials to AS/NZS 4671 Steel for the reinforcement of concrete. A newly discovered international video showing bent reinforcing bars fracturing in a brittle manner on rebending will also be included. A high level overview of the high strength reinforcing steel requirements in AS/NZS 4671 plus the AS 3600 design requirements will be included for interest and discussion.
