Bulletin 76: Benchmarking of deemed-to-satisfy provisions in standards

PDF

Bulletin 76

fib Bulletin 76: Benchmarking of deemed-to-satisfy provisions in standards - Durability of reinforced concrete structures exposed to chlorides presents the benchmarking of a number of rules for chloride-induced corrosion as given in national codes such as European, US and Australian standards.

This bulletin presents and discusses in detail the input data for the examined model parameters and offers an extensive annexe documenting the values of the individual parameters used in the analyses. It thus provides a reliable database for the performance-based probabilistic service-life design of concrete structures exposed to chlorides, be they in the form of salt fog, sea water or de-icing salts.

 

Bulletin 75: Polymer-duct systems for internal bonded post-tensioning

PDF

Bulletin75The purpose of fib Bulletin 75: Polymer-duct systems for internal bonded post-tensioning is to update and amend fib Bulletin 7: Corrugated plastic ducts for internal bonded post-tensioning, a technical report published in 2000.

 fib Bulletin 75 is meant as a cornerstone for the technical approval of polymer (plastic) ducts for internal bonded post-tensioning and possibly for the test procedures of a future testing standard. This recommendation offers information acquired from twenty years of experience as well as new specifications that will, hopefully, lead to the standardization of polymer-duct systems.

 

Memorandum of cooperation between the fib and ACI

PDF

signing MoC ACIOn 8 November 2015 fib President Harald S. Müller signed a memorandum of cooperation with ACI President Sharon Wood, ACI Past President William E. Rushing and ACI Executive Vice President Ronald G. Burg. ACI and the fib have cooperated on projects for many years, with the 2014 joint ACI-fib workshop on fibre-reinforced concrete held in Montreal, Canada, a recent example of collaboration. The memorandum of cooperation, signed during the ACI Fall Convention in Denver, seals both associations’ commitment to developing and disseminating knowledge about concrete globally.

 

Memorandum of cooperation between the fib and RILEM

PDF

MoC_photoThe fib and the Réunion internationale des laboratoires et experts des matériaux, systèmes de construction et ouvrages (RILEM) signed a memorandum of cooperation on 2 September 2015 in Melbourne, Australia, during 69th RILEM Week Conference. The main goal of the cooperation is the coordination of technical activities in the field of structural concrete. Members of both organizations will in the future benefit directly from this agreement by being able to purchase the other organization’s publications at a discounted price.
