This course is a study of concrete as a material, including analysis and design of concrete framed members in building structures in conformance with ACI-318 code. Typical structural components include flexural members, compression members, one-way and two-way slabs, footings, and walls. Use of computer software to solve problems is included.
Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
1. Understand basic principles and practices associated with design, analysis and usage of reinforced concrete in buildings and other structures.
2. Interpret the latest industry standard formulas, tables, design aids and computer software in the economical selection (design) of steel and concrete members.
3. Develop construction documents using current construction practices and techniques.
