Learning outcomes

Deepen knowledge in the field of non-linear analysis and design of concrete and masonry structures and their parts especially in the area of physically and geometric non-linear behaviour of structures as composite matter, effect of imposed deformation, time-dependent phenomena, probability-based design, influence of details of designed structure on complete technical solution. Students will get acquainted with the mathematical formulation of reinforced concrete structures optimization and with methods of solutions.
Students will be able to use modern design methods of selected concrete and masonry structures like foundations, special building structures and special engineering structures.

Prerequisites

structural mechanics, elasticity and plasticity, design of concrete and masonry structures

Corequisites

not required

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations. Education runs in the forms of lectures and individual consultation on the selected topic, that the student processes as a seminar work.

Forms and criteria of assessment

An exam is held in oral form and consists both of the practical part, in which the seminar work is discussed, and the theoretical part. Both parts should be accomplished to pass the exam.

Objective

Non-linear analysis and optimisation of design of concrete and masonry structures and their parts.
Modelling time-dependent phenomena.
Modern methods of design.

Specification of controlled instruction, the form of instruction, and the form of compensation of the absences
