WHAT ARE WEBINARS?
Hilti supplies the worldwide construction industry with innovative products, systems and services.
The engineering team here at Hilti is aware that there is a constant need to keep abreast of this and also a strong requirement for continuous professional development. This can be purely product based or in most cases covering the ever improving and adapting design methods and industry standards that we use on a daily basis. Therefore the education and training of engineers and architects with respect to innovative and effective solutions is a key focus for our Engineering department.
Today’s world however can provide us with less time to achieve these educational goals which is why we at Hilti provide regular webinars on important topics. Allowing you to view them in a live and interactive manner, with our specialists available to directly respond to your technical queries, or at a later time that will suit your own predefined schedule.

Concrete anchors are widely used in fastening both structural and non-structural elements.
Many structural engineers specify post-installed anchors where they design different fastening points with either mechanical or adhesive anchor system in many construction applications.These elements fastened are somehow directly or indirectly linked to the safety of human being or different economic investments.
There are different factors which could influence anchor design such as installation parameters, anchor layout, loading conditions and other special requirements related to seismic or fire design etc. and it is the responsibility of the structural engineer to ensure that anchor fastener shall sustain all load actions during execution and it will remain fit for use under different environmental and loading conditions. So, taking attention to these parameters while designing fastening points plays a key role in defining the design as a safe anchor design.
Furthermore, Construction industry nowadays became more dynamic and challenging, and taking that into consideration, safety and productivity is now crucial for many construction and design organizations. Considering all above-mentioned factors while designing post installed anchor fastening points will make hand calculation challenging especially when you need to re-check the design by changing one or more parameter.
Our technical webinar will introduce fundamentals of anchor design and different factors which influence anchor fastening points design in concrete as well as presenting a live example on how anchor design software brings productivity and safety to your design. Topics to addressed:
Proper design for post installed anchors
Dimensions to be checked while designing for anchors
Anchor design euro code framework
Specialty about concrete anchors versus other fastening system
Anchor design failure modes
Safety factor concept for anchor design
Introduction to anchor design software
Live design examples on Profis anchor softwareWho should attend:
Structural Engineers, Civil Engineers, QC Engineers who usually supervise structural concrete connections with post installed reinforcement, all engineers who design structural concrete connections.

ANCHOR MODULE 1: CRACKED CONCRETE
How Cracked concrete Influence Anchor Design

The Structural Engineering community specifies Post-installed anchors with either mechanical or adhesive system in many construction applications. The condition of base material will play a key role in selecting the type of anchor to be used.
Concrete base material is classified as either cracked or un-cracked. It is not possible for a reinforced concrete structure to be built without having cracks under working conditions, provided that they do not exceed a certain width limit, however it is not always necessary to regard cracks as defects in a structure. Concrete can often crack due to age, temperature variations or loads. Research and tests showed that cracks will run through these weak points where anchor exists and will influence anchor behavior and performance therefore only specific anchors are qualified to work in cracked concrete.
Accordingly, before designing anchor systems for concrete, it’s always important to consider the condition of the concrete you’re working with.
Our Free technical webinar will have a deep dive in cracked concrete topic and how it influences the anchor design, behavior and resistance. The webinar focused on the following topics:
• Introduction to Cracked Concrete
• Post Installed anchor behavior with cracked concrete
• Why Cracked Concrete matters for Fasteners
• How anchors are assessed and qualified for cracked concrete
• When to consider concrete as cracked concrete and when not to.
• Explanation on how cracked concrete affect the designWho should watch this webinar:
Structural Engineers, Civil Engineers, QC Engineers who usually supervise fastening applications with post installed anchors, All Engineers who design fastening connections and use post installed anchors.
ANCHOR MODULE 2: POST INSTALLED REBAR

50 minutesANCHOR MODULE 2: POST-INSTALLED REBAR DESIGN
Reinforcement anchorages or splices that are fixed into an existing concrete structure by injection adhesive in drilled holes are defined as “Post-Installed rebar connections”. Post Installed rebar connections are commonly used in a wide range of applications, which vary from new construction projects, to structure upgrades and infrastructure requalification.
So, when you need to extend, join or strengthen existing concrete walls, slabs, columns or beams, then adhesive mortars for post-installed rebar can help, however, post installed rebar must be designed as carefully as the entire structure.
While the European technical approvals prove that in standard load situations and applications, post installed rebars behave like cast-in bars, a number of differences needs to be considered in special design situations such as fire, or load cases where hooks or bends would be required for cast in anchorages such as the case for rigid connections.
Our technical webinar will cover post installed rebar design principles in accordance to Eurocode 2. It is intended to give the necessary information to safely design and specify post-installed reinforcement connections Topics addressed:
Introduction to post installed rebar
Post-installed rebar applications and behaviour
Approvals and qualification’s Criteria for adhesives
PI rebar design: Eurocode 2 provisionsWho should watch this webinar:
Structural Engineers, Civil Engineers, QC Engineers who usually supervise structural concrete connections with post installed reinforcement, all engineers who design structural concrete connection.

50 minutesFundamentals of Passive Fire Protection
Fire Protection is a critical consideration for all those who are responsible for creating the design, specifications, and construction of a building. It has to be also considered in the ongoing maintenance of occupied premises. The causes of fire vary and are unpredictable. Often the cause is outside the area of influence of design engineers and planners. But the ability to control the spread of a fire once it has started can still be influenced.
Effective fire control within a building is generally achieved through a combination of active system represented in alarm system, sprinkler system, suppression system, fire extinguishers or other proactive mechanical system and passive fire protection represented in Firestop system restricting the spread of fire to a defined fire compartment that is composed of fire rated walls, floors or ceilings.
Many times, due to cost and budget restrictions, firestop is not considered or just considered as a minor issue. This is not the case if building owners, architects, designers and general contractors take the correct firestop specifications and measures in an early phase of the construction project, it is their legal responsibility.
Our technical webinar will cover the fundamentals of passive fire protection. It is intended to give the necessary information to safely plan, design, specify and select an appropriate firestop system for any buildingTopics to addressed:
Introduction and consequences of Fire in buildings
Fire Safe Building Construction & Code Requirements
Firestop System Testing & Listings

Architects, Construction Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, QC Engineers, All engineers who usually design and specify fire protection system in buildings, all engineers who supervise and inspect fire protection system.
