Undergraduate Course: Concrete Structures 4 (CIVE10029)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This course explains the behaviour of reinforced concrete structures, and explores how understanding of their behaviour is applied in structural design. In the delivery, the fundamental mechanics of concrete structural members are described, leading towards the establishment of detailed procedures for design in accordance to members respective functions. The role of design codes in interpreting observed and theoretical behaviour is explained and demonstrated through the Eurocode methods to design concrete members.
This 10 credit lecture course involves 18 hours of lectures and 8 hours of examples classes/ workshops.
The course topics include:
1. Behavior of steel and concrete
2. Limit state design and actions
3. Flexural and shear design of beams
4. Anchorage, curtailment and detailing
5. Analysis and design of slabs
6. Design of columns
7. Design of foundations
8. Introduction to prestressed concrete design
9. Introduction to precast concrete design

On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Demonstrate understanding of the concept of limit state design;
- Demonstrate understanding of how reinforced concrete members behave and the models used to describe their behaviour;
- Design simple reinforced concrete elements based on code recommendations;
- Prepare neat and accurate design calculations, drawings, and technical reports of an appropriate length and level of detail;
- Explain the principles of prestressed concrete and precast concrete, as well as application methods.
