CE 4347 RC Design

Lecture Hours - 0 Lab Hours

An analysis, design and synthesis course for concrete structures, emphasizing elastic analysis and strength design. Topics include strength and serviceability requirements. Design of one way slabs, rectangular beams, flanged sections and columns, and footings for strength, shear, bond, bearing, and serviceability. Building codes, American Concrete Institute (ACI) specifications, material specifications, test methods, and recommended practice documents. Prerequisite: Grade of C or better in CE 3341.

CE 5312 Advanced RC Design

3 Lecture Hours - 0 Lab Hours

Includes structural design of slender columns, walls, truss model for shear and torsion; structural systems such as continuous beams, two-way slabs, yield-line theory and shear friction. Behavior of reinforced concrete structures, with emphasis on ductility and detailing of frames, slabs, and detailing for seismic loads will be covered. Building codes, American Concrete Institute (ACI) specifications, material specifications, test methods, and recommended practice documents. Credit not granted for both CE 4361 and CE 5312. Prerequisite: CE 4347.
