Objective

To teach the students to the principles of static solution of concrete structures and buildings.
To gain ability for design of the principal types of structures of building construction and civil engineering together with preparing relevant technical drawings.

Knowledge

A student gains these knowledge and skills:
• Knowledge of the principles of static solution of concrete structures and buildings.
• Virtue for designing principal types of structures of building construction and civil engineering together with the ability of preparing relevant technical drawings.

Syllabus

2. Monolithic skeleton structures – principles of reinforcing.
3. Foundation structures – footings and continuous footings.
4. Foundation structures – slabs and grids.
5. Two-way slabs edge supported.
6. Two-way slabs locally supported.
7. Ribbed and cassette slabs.
8. Wall beams.
9. Precast structures – skeletons, halls, flat and space elements.
10. Reinforced concrete tanks. Retaining walls.
11. Prestressed structures – basic theory, materials, types, method of prestressing insertion into concrete.
12. Design of structures from impermeable concrete – tanks, water reservoirs and channels.
13. Principles of masonry structures design. Manufacturing and control of concrete structures.
