Institute

Institute of Technology, Mechanisation and Construction Management

Objective

To make the students acquainted with technology of concrete, reinforced concrete structures and application of reinforced concrete elements in the assembled structures, their reconstructions and reinstating.

Knowledge

The students will master the objective of the course of Realization and Reconstruction of Reinforced Concrete Structures, i.e. they become acquainted with the technology of concrete, erection of reinforced concrete structures and application of reinforced concrete elements in built-up structures. He gets also knowledge of reconstruction of concrete structure.

Syllabus

1. Terminology, production and handling procedures, characteristic features of fresh concrete.
2. Formwork, technical procedures.
3. Reinforcement, pouring of concrete mixture into formwork, compacting.
4. Massive structures, concreting under special conditions, quality control.
5. Assembled structures, assembly procedures, fixation, quality control.
6. Methods of rehabilitating and reconstructing concrete structures, diagnostics.
7. Surface types of concrete structures and methods of rehabilitating them.
8. Structural rehabilitation.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of statics as applied to concrete structures, structural mechanics and methods for testing the properties of fresh and hardened concrete.

Syllabus

1. Introduction to the programme of the practical lessons, conditions and requirements for the credit, individual assignment of a monolithic structure that will be dealt with during practical lessons throughout the semester.
2. Assignment, contents and structure of technical guidelines for an assigned monolithic structure – the main output from the practical lessons, produced and discussed throughout the semester, complemented by supplementary work produced in the following practical lessons.
3. Calculation of concrete curing time after formwork removal, time schedule, inspection and test plan – all for the assigned monolithic structure as part of the technical guidelines.
4. Formwork design for the assigned structure produced manually or using available software – ground plan, characteristic sections, details, lists of elements.
5. Engineering economics study aimed at determining the most economical option from the aspect of concrete, salary and formwork costs.
6. Individual assignment of an example of the rehabilitation of a reinforced concrete structure – e.g. reinforcement of a beam, a design proposal, calculations.
7. Evaluation and checking of assigned tasks from practical lesson 6.
8. Evaluation of assigned tasks, defence of proposed solutions.
