students will be ableto identify the principle of prestressed concrete and its applications, methodsof prestressing, appropriate design codes. Apply appropriate codes to designprestressed concrete beams and slabs. Analyze the differences and similaritiesbetween design codes for prestressed concrete. Evaluate the different systemsand their advantages and disadvantages. Design basic prestressed concrete beam,continuous beam and prestressing regime.
- Upon completion of the subject students will be able to: a)Form the design philosophy for all the elements of a typical concrete structure, b)Understand the behavior of reinforced concrete at different levels: material level, element level and structural level, c) Evaluate methods of designing concrete structural elements including continuous beams, slabs, shear walls and columns,d) Employ the strut and tie method for the design of simple concrete structures, e)Employ an analysis system for the determination of stress and deformation in a reinforced concrete structure. Employ FRP and UHPFRCC composites for repairing and strengthening of reinforced concrete structures.
