1. Multi-storey frame structures – system arrangement, loading, design, space stiffness – bracing. 2. Multi-storey frame structures – structural analysis, reduction and redistribution of internal forces. 3. Multi-storey frame structures – reinforcement detailing, constructive principles. 4.–5. Serviceability of reinforced concrete structures – stress limitation, cracks control, deflection control. 6.–7. Principles of design of cast in place foundation structures – reinforced and plain concrete footing, continuous footings and grids. 8. Single-storey frame structures – pointed and arched girder, corbels. 9. Two-way edge supported slabs – structural arrangement, structural analysis, reinforcement. 10. Continuous two-way slabs – principle of solution, reinforcement detailing. Slabs partially edge supported. 11. Serviceability of two-way slabs. Slabs of common shape. 12. Circular and annular slabs. Waffle slabs. 13. Simple supported and continuous deep girders. Work joints and expansion gaps in structures. Manufacturing and control of structures.


13 weeks, 2 hours/week, compulsory


1. Cast-in-place RC framed structure – preliminary design of dimensions, scheme of shape of structure, load, loading states for internal frame. 2. Calculation of internal forces of the frame. 3. Calculation of internal forces of the frame – continuation, combination of loads. 4. Dimensioning of cross beam for bend and shear (stirrups, eventually also bends). 5. Curtailment of reinforcement of cross beam. Checking. 6. Dimensioning of one internal column. 7. Structural solution and dimensioning of single footing below internal column. 8. Drawings of reinforcement of the cross beam, single footing and column. Checking. 9. Serviceability limit states – deformation, cracks. 10. Two-way slab – preliminary design, load, internal forces, dimensioning – design of reinforcement. 11. Rebar or netting reinforcing. 12. Final checking. 13. Project submission. Credit.
