Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
After completing this subject, students will be able to understand and apply the following skills and topic areas:
- design and assessment of simple load bearing reinforced concrete structures (slab and girder floor, balcony cantilever, stairs)
- design of monolithic and prefabricated frame structures
- simplified design of two-way slabs
- design of plain and reinforced concrete foot foundation and foundation strip
- design of concrete breast wall, repair, rehabilitation and reconstruction of foundations.
- design and assessment of masonry structures
