Learning outcomes

Deepen knowledge in the field of the modern methods of design:
- concrete plasticity and its application in concrete structures design,
- strut and ties models,
- the members subjected to a shear force and torsion in interaction with others types of internal forces using compression field theory,
- the principles of rheological effects of concrete and mastering the methods for analysis of these effects on step by step constructed structures,
- analysis of structures subjected to temperature.

Prerequisites

structural mechanics, elasticity and plasticity, principles of calculation of the creep and shrinkage effects of concrete on concrete structures design

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 wor is discussed, and the theoretical part. Both parts should be accomplished to pass the exam.

Objective

Providing information about the modern methods of concrete members design using a truss analogy.
Knowledge of the methods for analysis of concrete structure details and for solution of interaction of force effects on a concrete section.
Understanding of the methods for analysis of long-term effects of concrete and composite structures in view of the rheological properties of concrete.
Explanation of the design method of temperature stressed structures.

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