Learning Objectives

Analysis and modelling of RC structures. Limit state verification of cross-sections and members of RC structures. Design of buildings with RC structure from the conception of structural scheme to the detailing of single structural members.

Course Structure

All the subjects of the course will be illustrated by the teacher during classes. Numerical examples and a sample structural design will be developed to show the practical application of the theoretical subjects. Learning of the students will be monitored over the course by: (1) development of the design of a RC structure and (2) weekly meeting with the teacher.

In case teaching were given in smart working mode, the organization might be sligthly modified in order to comply with the course program reported in syllabus.

Detailed Course Content

Methods for verification of structures: from allowable stresses to limit states. Modelling in elastic and inelastic range of behaviour of materials (concrete and steel), resisting mechanisms of RC structural members and loads. Ultimate limit states of RC members: tension, compression, bending moment, bending and axial force, shear, torsion. Serviceability limit state of RC members: stresses, cracking control, deflection control. Design of a RC structure.
