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.
To understand the principles of prestressed structures behaviour with correct application of the prestressing effects in practice.

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.
• Understanding of the principles of prestressed structures behaviour with correct application of the prestressing effects in practice.

Syllabus

1.–2. Structural systems of multi-storey monolithic frame structures – arrangement systems, loading, space stiffness, ceiling structures, dimensioning, static solution, redistribution and restriction of forces, reinforcement arrangement, constructive principles.
3. RC monolithic hall structures.
4.–5. RC two-way slabs edge supported and locally supported.
6. Foundation structures – footings, continuous footings, grids, slabs.
7. Prestressed concrete – principle, materials, method of prestressing, principles of design.
8. Prestressing and its changes, ultimate and serviceability limit states.
9. Precast load-bearing structures halls and buildings – design and reinforcing, stability and stiffness.
10. Specialities in design of precast structures – influence of manufacturing, transport and assembly, design of joints, anchorages and mounting lugs, action in assembly course.
11.–12. Principles of design of selected engineering structures – storage tanks, silos, reservoirs, retaining walls.
