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.

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.

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.
