Post-Installed Reinforcing Bar Design: Anchor or Reinforcement?

Please enter alternative text here (optional)

Description: The use of reinforcing bars post-installed with an adhesive system is a common design and construction application. Recent revisions to the ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria for Post-Installed Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements (AC308) have made it possible for an adhesive system to be approved for post-installing reinforcing bars per the development and splice provisions of the American Concrete Institute Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318). Therefore, adhesive systems qualified per the provisions of AC308 can now be used with post-installed reinforcing bars designed and installed per the anchoring-to-concrete provisions of ACI 318/CSA A23.3, and per the development and splice provisions of ACI 318/CSA A23.3. This presentation will explain the differences between post-installed reinforcing bars designed per CSA A23.3-14 anchoring-to-concrete provisions and per CSA A23.3-14 development and splice provisions.

An Overview of Fire Proofing Structural Steel

What's Behind The Curtain

Description: There are various ways to protect exposed structural steel in the event of a fire, whether in an airport, shopping mall, or in a commercial building. This presentation will provide an overview of different methods of steel protection with a focus on IFRM (intumescent fire resistive material). Participants will gain an understanding of key terminology associated with this application and how the different types of protection are designed to function in the event of a fire. You will also learn how intumescent steel protection is installed and what to consider during the design process, from an aesthetic standpoint as well as how to understand critical design elements found on the UL listings. 

This course is accredited through AIA for 1.0 LU l HSW

Fundamentals of Post-Installed Reinforcing Bar Design Using Qualified Adhesive Anchor Systems

What's Behind The Curtain

Description: This course will inform the structural community on elements of reinforced concrete design using post-installed adhesive anchor systems. The ICC-ES "Acceptance Criteria for Post-Installed Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements", otherwise known as AC308, now includes provisions to assess adhesive systems for use with the development and splice provisions of ACI 318-11 Chapter 12 (non-seismic) and Chapter 21 (seismic). These topics will be discussed throughout this presentation. 

This course is accredited through NCSEA Diamond Review for 1.0 hour of continuing education credit.
