ASI Workshop Series
Design of Composite Beams, Slabs and Columns - Get ready for new AS/NZS 2327
Who should attend?
This one-day course is aimed primarily at practicing engineers (consultants, steelwork contractors and checking engineers) who need to refresh design experience, learn about current best practice and prepare for the significant revision to AS 2327. Procurers, manufacturers and fabricators will also gain significant understanding of the planned changes to composite design and will be able to plan better for their implementation.
The workshop will provide a good initial grounding in current best practice for design of simply-supported composite beams to the existing AS 2327.1. The workshop will then review the design intent to be incorporated into the new AS/NZS 2327 and explore design models for 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. Having attended this workshop, you will be: Grounded in the basics of composite design Able to apply current best practice to design requirements that go beyond the limitations of the current Standard Prepared for significant changes coming with the new AS/NZ S2327 Able to configure design processes and office practices to best suit the changes
