Title
Project Sheet 1 Building Extensions Refurbishment Beca Group Vol 2 No 2 1989
Author/s

Beca Carter Hollings and Ferner Limited
Abstract

The 1988-1989 construction comprises extensions to the existing 5-storey reinforced concrete frame building constructed 1971. It includes additional floors and structures to enclose new plant and lift areas. The total floor area has been increased by some 50%. The layout of the extensions required that they be joined to the existing structure which was designed in 1965.

Title
Computer Column Dynamic Analysis and Software for Seismic Analysis Vol 2 No 2 1989
Author/s

Stuart Hodder, Don Campbell
Abstract

For typical structural engineering applications, perhaps 95% of design requirements are fulfilled with static analysis. In dynamic situations such as seismic or wind loading on structures approximate empirical techniques are used to convert the problem into a static formulation. However there are instances where a more precise treatment of the true vibrational characteristics may be required.

Title
Technical paper Durability of Reinforced Concrete Materials and Workmanship Factors Vol 2 No 2 1989
Author/s

Summarised from a paper presented at IPENZ Conference 1988
Abstract

Concrete as a material on its own has a reputation as a long lasting and durable material. In its role in reinforced concrete, it performs a dual role: 1. It is an integral part of the structural load carrying system with the reinforcing steel. 2. It provides a protection system to prevent the corrosion of the reinforcing steel.
