IMRt CIWG | Structural Maintenance

SIRF Roundtables presents
Industrial Maintenance Roundtable
Common Interest Workgroup
Structural Maintenance

Proudly hosted by Port Kembla Coal Terminal

SIRF Roundtables in New South Wales currently comprises in excess of 40 progressive organisations that are willing to network and share their best practices in a peer to peer learning environment, specialising in Operational Excellence and Industrial Maintenance.

The ‘Common Interest Work Group’ (CIWG) events are for operators/technical specialists looking to discuss with peers, specific topics they are working on, in and around their field of excellence.

With today's pressures to minimise maintenance costs there will often be a desire to defer and sometimes ignore the requirement for the inspection, maintenance and repair of structures. The consequence of failure of structures can be severe and often there is difficultly in fully understanding structural condition and failure risk. Also, the effect of not carrying out basic maintenance, such as painting, usually results in much larger future cost.

Potential Discussion Items:

- Maintenance of Structures and Buildings
- What is best practice for quantifying asset structural condition
- Who should be doing structural and building inspections and what is the expertise required for the different roles required
- Methods and formats for structural and building inspection reports to achieve the most impact.
- How to store to this data                                                                                             - The role of baseline structural surveys
- Inspection best practice for steel and concrete structures
- Wet & salt water environments
- Protecting steel with coatings and balancing cost with service life
- Walkways, platforms, stairways, ladders and cladding
- Concrete failure modes, diagnostic methods and repair methods
- Design-out solutions for structural problems
- Cathodic protection and corrosion mitigation
- Setting priorities and justification of money for structural repairs
