HERA, SCNZ and the Institute of Welding are pleased to announce a one-day seminar on Design and Analysis of Welded Connections, which will be run throughout July and August in Hamilton, Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.

This seminar provides an overview of the theory of design of welded steel structures and components, with plenty of hands-on guidance for structural and mechanical engineers. Delegates are encouraged to bring along their design problems to contribute to discussions and local case studies.

The morning session will be presented by Professor Adolf Hobbacher (University of Applied Sciences, Wilhelmshaven, Germany), one of the world’s leading experts on weld design issues.

The afternoon session will be jointly presented by Professor Adolf Hobbacher, Dr Stephen Hicks (General Manager Structural Systems, HERA) and Dr Michail Karpenko (General Manager Welding Centre, HERA); and will cover reliability aspects of steel structures, weld quality issues and a fatigue design procedure of new bridge design standard AS/NZS 5100.6.

If you are a designer, structural engineer, consultancy engineer, mechanical engineer, maintenance or quality control engineer working in steel construction, design, fabrication or maintenance, make sure you do not miss this excellent professional development event!
