Short description: The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the essence of concrete structures, mastering the methods of design and detailing of the basic members of concrete building structures.
Full description: The essence of reinforced concrete structures. Types of concrete structures (concrete, reinforced concrete, composite, prestressed). Stress-strain relations for concrete and reinforcing steel. Cooperation of concrete and reinforcing steel. General principles of design of reinforced concrete structures. Design procedures for bending sections and shear members. Detailing of bending and shear members. Control of serviceability limit states without direct calculation.
