13 weeks, 2 hours/week, compulsory


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.
