Course Objectives To provide students comprehensive information on mechanical behavior and design principles of reinforced concrete structural elements.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • • Acquire the knowledge to design reinforced concrete systems and elements and understand their behavior under different loads.
  • • Design reinforce concrete sections in accordance with ultimate strength design.
  • • Gain the knowledge to design simple and continuous RC beams of any cross sectional shape for shear, flexure, and deflection.
  • • Design any type of RC structural element according to design requirements of TS500, ACI318 and earthquake design codes.
Course Content Properties of Reinforced Concrete and reinforcing steel. Mechanical properties and behaviour of structural concrete. Basic behaviour of RC and moment-curvature relation. Failure types in RC members. Principles of ultimate strength design. Analysis and design of axially loaded member, members subjected to flexure, member subjected to axial load and moment. Mechanism of shear failure and shear strength of RC members.
