1 February 2010

Respected industry group Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA) has just published a revised edition of its "Guide to Industrial Floors and Pavements," covering the latest cost-effective techniques for the design and construction of concrete flooring across a range of building types.

The revised third edition is available through SAI Global for $92.40 (hard copy) or $83.16 (PDF electronic version). The guide is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the design, construction and specification of concrete floors and pavements in commercial and industrial applications such as warehouses and stores, manufacturing plants, engineering workshops and garages, offices and shopping complexes.

It includes a number of additions and updates on the previous edition, including: * new charts that cover 5 and 8-tonne axle loads, * combined wheel and post loads, * concrete strengths up to 100MPa, * new information to cover armouring of joints and shear transfer at joints, * an appendix on the design of dowels, * more work examples, and * a spreadsheet to help designers calculate the required base thickness and allow sensitivity checks of variables more rapidly.

To purchase a copy of the revised guide, go to www.saiglobal.com and click on InfoStore. The guide is also available on loan from the CCAA library, Australia’s most extensive resource for concrete and cement information. For more information on CCAA library services, go to www.ccaa.com.au and click on Resource Centre.
