Course Objectives The aim of the course is to teach the behavior of reinforced concrete members in terms of strength and deformation; relationship between behavior and building code requirements.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Quantify safety and functionality of man-made structures.
  • Recognition of the behavior and design reinforced concrete walls.
  • Classify reinforced concrete slabs and determine the optimum type of slab for the structural system.
  • Design reinforced concrete slabs according to the current codes.
  • Design reinforced concrete foundations according to the current codes.
  • Get familiarized with the engineering problems by discussing case studies.
  • Gain the behavior of structural element under earthquakes loads.
Course Content The course will cover the following topics: 1. Torsion of R/C Beams, 2. Slender Columns; 3. Structural walls; 4. One-way and two-way slabs; 5. Slab Deflection; 6. Foundation; 7. Seismic behavior of R/C Members and buildings
