This course aims to convey the fundamentals of the behaviour of pilasters, beams and slabs made of reinforced concrete and also the reinforcing structures and its detailing. The students should be able to document the criteria and theories on the behaviour of structural elements to be dimensioned and respective processes as well as prepare and draft general documents for consultation. And also to perform calculations and detailed design of reinforced concrete elements, inherent in the expertise of the civil engineering profession.
The constituent materials of reinforced concrete;
General safety activities and criteria;
Safety checks of ultimate limit states for resistance;
Safety checks of ultimate limit state for buckling;
Basics of reinforcing steel;
Reinforced concrete structures made of continuous beams and frames;
On-going assessment based on practical exercises, coursework and tests. The final grade is determined with basis on continuous assessment, coursework and exam.
Students are expected to have active participation in class sessions. They are provided with summary handouts containing worksheets with practical problems to be solved and discussed in class (with practical cases such as structural detailing, etc).
