    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    AS 3600 2009 specifies minimum requirements for the design and construction of concrete building structures and members that contain reinforcing steel or tendons, or both. Known as the AS 3600 Concrete code, also sets out requirements for plain concrete and pedestal footings.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out minimum requirements for the design and construction of concrete building structures and members that contain reinforcing steel or tendons, or both. It also sets out minimum requirements for plain concrete pedestals and footings.NOTES: 1 The general principles of concrete design and construction and the criteria embodied in this Standard may be appropriate for concrete structures other than buildings, members not specifically mentioned herein and to materials outside the limits given in Clause 1.1.2.2 It is intended that the design of a structure or member to which this Standard applies be carried out by, or under the supervision of, a suitably experienced and competent person.3 For guidance on the design of maritime structures refer to AS 4997.4 If alternate materials and methods to those prescribed in this Standard are to be used, they would need to be considered as part of the development of a Performance Solution to demonstrate compliance with the relevant Performance Requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC) and be accepted by the relevant building authority.This Standard is not intended to apply to the design of mass concrete structures.
