Course Objective

The major objectives of this course are: To establish the basic principles of reinforced concrete structural member and sytem behaviour and To introduce the basic principles of the analytical methods and design procedures.

Course Content

Mechanical behavior of concrete in uniaxial and multiaxial states of stress. Time dependent behavior of concrete. Mechanical behavior of reinforcing steel. Behavior and strength of uniaxially loaded members; confinement. Behavior and strength of members in pure bending. Behavior and strength of members under combined bending and axial load. Behavior and strength of members under combined shear and bending.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course, the successful student is expected to be able to, To interpret indications of different reinforced concrete structural behaviour types to a certain extent; To perform analysis and design computations for some basic structural members concerning some basic problems; To check the the validity of computer outcomes using some simple manual approximate methods of computation.
