Concrete structures 1

FAST-BL005Acad. year: 2020/2021

Reinforced concrete monolithic structures: one-and multi-storey frame structures and their structural elements. Design principles of cast-in-place foundation structures: wall, footing pad, strip, grid and mat foundation.
Dimensioning reinforced concrete members considering theirs limit serviceability.
Two-ways slabs – edge supported. Circular and annular slabs. Two-way ribbed and cassette slabs. Wall beams – simple and continuous.
Construction and expansion joints in concrete structures. Realisation and control of concrete structures.

Course curriculum

1. Multi-storey frame structures – system arrangement, loading, design, space stiffness – bracing.
2. Multi-storey frame structures – structural analysis, reduction and redistribution of internal forces.
3. Multi-storey frame structures – reinforcement detailing, constructive principles.
4.-5. Serviceability of reinforced concrete structures – stress limitation, cracks control, deflection control.
6.-7. Principles of design of cast in place foundation structures – reinforced and plain concrete footing, continuous footings and grids.
8. Single-storey frame structures – pointed and arched girder, corbels.
9. Two-way edge supported slabs - structural arrangement, structural analysis, reinforcement.
10. Continuous two-way slabs – principle of solution, reinforcement detailing. Slabs partially edge supported.
11. Serviceability of two-way slabs. Slabs of common shape.
