Half-day Webinar Recent advances in design methodology for post-installed reinforcements

Date, time & venue
2020-08-14;14:00 – 17:15;Webinar


(Supported by Structural Division)



Post-installed reinforcements (PIR) use adhesive or cementitious grout to bond the reinforcements and concrete together. They are widely used to connect new structural components to old concrete structures. However, design methodology for PIR is not available for Hong Kong. This half-day webinar aims at bringing the key international researchers in the field of PIR to share with us their updated knowledge of structural analysis and design of connections involving PIR. In this webinar, different failure modes of PIR in moment connections will be shared. The rebar anchorage design with aid of strut-and-tie method suitable for Hong Kong will be presented. In addition, recent development of high-performance PIR systems and research dedicated to specific applications of PIR will be addressed.
