Learn how to optimize the design of composite structures by fully utilizing the latest revised, and significantly expanded material covering continuous beams, slabs and columns in AS/NZS 2327 Composite structures - Composite steel-concrete construction in buildings.
This seminar will provide a solid initial grounding in current best practice for the design of simply-supported and continuous composite beams to AS/NZS 2327. The seminar will then explore design models for the design of composite slabs and composite columns. Strength, stiffness, products, design process, fire, testing, worked examples, practical design tips, detailing and good practice will all be covered.
The seminar is a must-attend for engineers wanting to understand and gain maximum benefit from the revised Standard.
The seminar will cover a range of content focused on basic concepts, composite action and design inputs, including:
Detailing and good practice for composite construction: placing decking, supporting decking, edge detailing, slab penetrations, concreting, top flange protection, and stud positioning
