Hilti Emirates cordially invites you to attend the New Fire Design for Structural Concrete Elements National Seminar.

The seminar will cover topics that include:

• Understanding the new fire design methods and assessments criteria for post installed rebar connections.

• Understanding the seismic design methods for post installed rebar connections.

• Identifying the most common anchoring wrong practices onsite, and new technologies and innovations that avoid them.

The seminar will be co-presented by technical experts from Hilti Headquarters in Schaan as well as professors from the American University of Sharjah:

-Professor Adil Al-Tamimi, PhD

Professor of Civil Engineering in the American University of Sharjah, Coordinator of the Integrated Materials Systems “IMS” Group

-Professor Rami Hawileh, PhD

Professor in Civil Engineering departement in the American University of Sharjah

-Professor Sherif Yehia, PhD

Professor in Civil Engineering departement in the American University of Sharjah

-Mrs. Stella Nerbano

Anchors technical expert from Hilti Headquarter in Schaan, Liechtenstein and civil engineer

graduate from New York University
