Basic Reinforced Concrete Detailing to BS8110 & EC2
A single day introductory course on R.C. Detailing based on the delegates / Employers' requirements which are usually ascertained in advance.
Aims and Objectives:
On completion of this course delegates should be able to:
Determine the most suitable format for detailing within given time / financial constraints.
Define individual responsibilities within the detailing process, apply the appropriate checks and Code clauses to ensure compliance.
Determine how to select the correct reinforcement layout to suit both the design and buildability considerations.
Avoid common pitfalls when detailing by the application of basic good practice rules.
Establish what information is required of the Detailer, how to present it, plus where to source information required by them to complete their work efficiently.
Apply basic principles to help with progressively more complex detailing.
Documentation and Principles
What the Detailer needs to produce
Why the information is required
Who uses what piece of information and why
Useful places / publications / information sources for the Detailer
Standard guidelines for the production of both General Arrangement and Reinforcement drawings
Use of dedicated detailing packages covering potential advantages and disadvantages
Overview of three main detailing methods including potential advantages and disadvantages
Economy in detailing, providing the right information for the right price
Laps / Anchorages / Curtailment
Definitions, application and guidance on calculation of the required lengths using BS 8110 and the ISE Standard Method books to highlight differences and similarities between the different Codes
Cover / Large radius bends / Torsion & Shear Links
Definitions, governing criteria and identification from BS 8666 (2005)
Simple detailing exercise followed by discussion on basic good practice detailing for common elements (potential to tailor to Client specific requirements)
Overview of the basic differences which will affect the Detailer as compared to BS 8110 using the ISE Standard Method Of Detailing Structural Concrete manual
Mode of Delivery:
The day is designed to be an interactive process with continuous delegate feedback / discussion based around individual experience and requirements set against the different topics covered in the Course content.
A simple hand detailing exercise is included putting the theory into practice and demonstrating important points covered during the day.
Benefits Perceived by Participants:
The confidence, ability and understanding to detail simple RC elements regardless of previous knowledge / experience.
An overall understanding of where detailing fits within the construction process and the theory behind it.
An appreciation of flexible good practice detailing and the importance of error reduction within the completed drawings and schedules.
Novice / entry level (ONC / HNC) Civil / Structural Technicians and Detailers ideally from a Designer / Consultant background OR other Construction Industry Professionals wishing to gain a basic insight and understanding of the RC detailing process. Previous experience in detailing is not a pre-requisite.
Ideally delegates should if possible obtain a copy of the ISE Standard Method of Detailing Structural Concrete - however this is not mandatory. Calculators, pencils, erasers and a scale rule will be required.
