Advanced Concrete Design for Buildings (3) Continuation of A.E. 402. Advanced analysis, design, and detail of concrete masonry, prestressed and reinforced concrete.
A E 431 Advanced Concrete Design for Buildings (3)
This is the last course in reinforced concrete design in the Architectural Engineering curriculum, and builds on previously learned skills in reinforced concrete design and analysis of statically determinate and statically indeterminate systems. Successful students will come away with sufficient understanding of the theoretical basis of concrete design to be able to learn any further aspect of concrete design on their own, and a set of specific critical skills needed by any structural designer involved with reinforced concrete structures. These skills include:
- Identification of the assumptions and weakness of the theory of reinforced concrete members.
- Detailed design of reinforced concrete beams and girders.
- Design of reinforced concrete slabs by the direct design method.
- Design of reinforced concrete slabs by the equivalent frame method.
- Analysis of reinforced concrete members subjected to torsion, to determine bending and torsional moments.
- Design of reinforced concrete members subjected to torsion.
- Design of reinforced concrete columns, slender and non-slender.
- Design of reinforced concrete columns in biaxial bending.
This course is taught by a combination of lectures, solution of example problems, and design projects.
