Lecturer
- Luis Filipe Rocha de Almeida

Prerequisites
Knowledge of Applied Statics and basics of Strength of Materials.

Objectives
The students should develop skills that enable them to calculate slabs and foundations in reinforced concrete; to calculate and detail reinforcement structures and to check safety limits for reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.

Program
Slabs; Foundations; Wall beams and short cantilever beams;
Retaining walls; Provisions concerning improved ductility structures; Limit states; Reinforced and pre-stressed
concrete.

Evaluation Methodology
Coursework and one ?open book? test as intermediate assessment
or final examination in the regular exam periods.
