Lunch and Learn Penetron

with Hacene Baleh

How to design a waterproof and durable shotcrete wall in basements.

Shotcrete is one of the most used construction techniques in basements against shoring systems. However, if the important steps were not adhered to right from the design stages, especially in hydrostatic conditions, it becomes one the most heartbreaking walls to look at. Some of the main issues are the quality of the finish, the concrete cracking, and the waterproofing.

Watch the Penetron Lunch & Learn session to go through what you should and shouldn’t do during the design and construction stages.

Lunch and Learn Ramsetreid
Thursday 17 June 2021

with Peter Kinsley

Code Compliant Precast Connections

This seminar focused on the ductility requirements of AS3600 and AS 3850;
Pertaining to:

  • Correct specification of metric ferrules for services and steelwork only, using grade 4.6 bolts for ductility
  • Correct specification of reinforcing connections with footed anchors / inserts that achieve ductile yield  of the bar
  • Use of Reid Grout sleeves as mechanical splices.

2020 Presentations

Lunch and Learn SIRA (Steel Reinforcement Institute of Australia)
Thursday 19 November 2020

SRIA with Eric Lume, National Engineer

Don’t break the Reo quality chain: The mechanical properties of a steel bar change when it is bent, straightened, or welded. You must get a JAS-ANZ accredited 3rd Party processor Certificate, before the concrete is placed, to guarantee the reinforcing bar and mesh supplied on your project conforms to Australian Standards.

Due to a recording malfunction, this seminar is unavailable. To see more from SIRA click here.

Lunch and Learn Inducta
Thursday 12 November 2020

with Marko Jankulovski, Structural Engineer, Software Developer

RCB – Automated Column Design and Schedule Demonstration: Using RCB’s automated column design and schedule users can drastically reduce the time needed to create a column design. This feature can produce accurate designs, quickly, even during the preliminary design stage. The columns are designed for the chosen load envelope and fire case in RCB with the click of a button. The process of manually rationalising the column design on paper is then performed within the software using column groups. The design can then be exported to excel, DXF or to REVIT. RCB fully automates the column design and schedule process eliminating the need for manual transfer of information to paper or other software.

Ultrafloor Lunch and Learn Presentation

Lunch and Learn with Penetron
Thursday 18 June 2020

Concrete Waterproofing and Durability with Penetron
Presented by Hacene Baleh, Specifications Engineer Penetron Australia

This presentation will highlight key information to the designers in relation to the concrete waterproofing and durability using Penetron crystalline admixture, the causes of concrete and reinforcement deterioration over time and how to prevent them with examples on different applications on site.

Lunch and Learn with Peikko

Peikko Design Tools for Engineers
Presented by Harri Onikki, Technical Manager

Find out about free online software for structural engineers and products included in common 3D modelling tools.

Lunch and Learn with Ramset Reid
Thursday 4 June 2020

Best Practice in Joint Management for Concrete Floors and Pavements
Presented by Kate Storer, Principal Engineer, Ramset Reid

The first of our new Lunch and Learn series provides you the opportunity for an in-depth exploration of our Industry Partners products and services to find out how they can enhance your work. Joints in slab on ground industrial floors and pavements must be able to transfer the imposed loads from one side of the joint to the other whilst still maintaining bilateral horizontal movement. This presentation will discuss methods to design and install industrial joints in order to minimise cracking and joint spalling.
