ADVANCE COURSES

Continuing Education

The topics focus on the origin of design methods in the use of post-installed anchor and rebar system. It also confers how anchors are tested or qualified to meet the local code requirements in line with our latest codes and regulations. Advance topics covering additional attributes for passive firestopping in the facets of acoustics, ageing resistance, electrical resistance and the like.

List of Advance Courses

Cracked Concrete / Seismic

This technical seminar discusses the behavior of anchors when set in tension zones or cracked concrete. It also discusses how anchors are tested or qualified to meet code requirements (ACI 318-14 & ETAG) as to the applicability in cracked concrete applications. This seminar will also detail how anchoring systems behave during earthquake and how they are qualified to meet seismic performance requirements. Full discussion of this topic will consume approximately 60 minutes.

Concrete Capacity Design

A technical seminar that disucsses the Concrete Capacity Design (CCD) Method as contained in the American Concrete Institute ACI 318-14 Chapter 17 and/or the European Technical Approval Guideline (ETAG) 0001. This seminar gives a basic discussion of the origina of the design method, the CCD process of use for post-installed anchors and its applicability to structural anchoring. Full discussion of this topic will consume approximately 60 minutes.

Rebar Design

A technical seminar that discusses post-installed rebars designed as if cast-in, as applied to concrete member extensions, miss-outs, and concrete strengthening / retrofitting. It will discuss the development length design considering splitting and bond failure as contained in ACI 318-14 Chapter 25 and NSCP 2015 as basis for the design approach. This technical seminar will consume approximately 60 minutes.

Firestop Attributes

In addition to meeting the requirement of providing a reliable and lasting seal at a fireproofed penetration or joint in a wall or floor, it is the effectiveness of a passive firestopping system on exposure to fire, over the entire service life of a building, that is of greatest importance. This technical seminar aims to detail other qualification of passive firestop products in different aspects outlined below. The discussion will consume approximately 60 minutes.

i.e.

  • Acoustics
  • Water Tightness
  • Movement Joints
