Stadium - Sydney Olympic Stadium, Sydney, Australia
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.
Ancon will be exhibiting at Evolving Concrete 2017 on Thursday 28th September 2017 at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, Reading. Ancon will be on Stand 19 for the duration of the event.
Ancon is pleased to announce that it has successfully transitioned its Quality and Environmental Management Systems to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 respectively, well ahead of the September 2018 industry deadline.
