Watermanagement Concrete Structures
FAST-BLA015Acad. year: 2020/2021
Types of concrete structures of water-service buildings. Monolithic framed structures. Supporting framed structures of storage tanks for liquids and water towers. Foundation structures – footings, continuous footings, grid and mat foundations, deep foundations.
Two-ways slabs – edge and locally supported (flat-slab floor, lifted slabs). Two-way ribbed and cassette plates. Circular plates. Simple and continuous wall beams. Walls with/without stiffening elements. Retaining walls.
Storage structures (bunkers and silos). Storage tanks for liquids, water towers, channels and ducts. Shells, domes and arches.
Application of precast structures. Basic theory of prestressed concrete. Principles of masonry structure design.

5. Two-way slabs – edge supported.
6. Two-way slabs locally supported (flat-slabs, slabs with enlarged column head). Circular plates.
7. Simple and continuous wall beams. Walls with/without stiffening elements. Retaining walls.
8. Principles of design and reinforcing of storage structures (bunkers and silos). Rectangular and rotary symmetric tanks and water reservoirs.
9. Problems of water-service structures cracking.
10. Water-service structures – troughs, weirs.
11. Water-service structures – channels and ducts.
12. Design and application of shells, domes and arches.
13. Principles of design and application of precast structures. Basic theory of prestressed concrete. Principles of masonry structures design.
To provide students with basic knowledge about concrete structures and constructions design from viewpoint of the static.
To gain ability for design of the principal types of structures of building construction and civil engineering together with preparing relevant technical drawings.
