Compliance and Manufacturing of Structural Steel Hollow Sections

This event is sold out.

Australian manufactured structural steel hollow sections are unique in that the circular, square and rectangular shapes are cold-formed from flat steel and comply to AS/NZS 1163. For structural applications these sections are designed in accordance with AS 4100 and not the cold-formed Steel Structures Code AS/NZS 4600. Knowledge of standards requirements is of increasing importance due to some structural steel hollow sections being imported from countries whose regulatory and commercial practices do not align with the Australian community expectation for safety and risk. This is placing pressure on certifying engineers to be better educated on the supply, fabrication and design aspects.

This presentation includes details on how to make the best use of steel hollow sections in structures and minimize the risk of failure through awareness of the manufacturing, supply chain and fabrication processes. 

Topics covered include:
• The manufacturing and compliance process
• ERW tube vs line pipe – manufacture, characteristics, testing, applications
• Identifying non-compliant steel hollow sections – applying product conformity provisions of AS/NZS 1163
• Ensuring that the product used meets Australian standards – third party product certification
• Fit for purpose corrosion protection and durability
• Case Studies
