FAST-BL001Acad. year: 2019/2020

Concrete members. Structural characteristic of concrete. Concrete reinforcement and its bond with concrete. Basic principles of design. Design condition of structural materials and the structure itself. Concrete structures durability.
Desing of reinforced concrete members stressed by of bending moment and shear force - ultimate and serviceability limit states, structural principles. Design of reinforced concrete members stressed by combination of axial force and bending moments. Principles of dimensioning for different stresses. Dimensioning of members from plain and low reinforced concrete.
Simple concrete members – one way reinforced slabs, beams, girders, lintels, cantilever structures, columns and stairs.
