Stadium - Sydney Olympic Stadium, Sydney
Ancon DSD Shear Load Connectors were installed in Sydney’s Olympic Stadium. The stadium was completed in 1998 and was the central venue for track and field events at the 2000 Games.
Sports stadia of this size are subject to considerable loads. The structural movement joints must be designed to allow the necessary movement and load transfer to take place, ensuring the structure functions correctly.
Ancon DSDs offer significant advantages over single dowels. They are more effective at transferring load across a joint, while allowing expansion and contraction of the structure to take place. They also simplify the onsite construction of the structural movement joint.
Ancon DSD100s have been installed at the beam to slab connections on this all-seat stadium.
Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.
We are pleased to confirm that we are now Industry Partner members of the National Precast Association (NPCAA) in support of their aim to advance precast as a construction method in Australia.
Shelf angle systems provides flexible, cost-effective design solutions for the support of masonry cladding and are designed to suit specific applications, taking into account loading, fixings position and cavity width.
