Concrete Structures 1 - CIVL9205

Year - 2018

The objectives of this unit are to provide a basic understanding of the behaviour of reinforced concrete members and structures; to provide a basic understanding of standard methods of analysis and design of reinforced concrete structures (including an understanding of capabilities and limitations); and to provide design training in a simulated professional engineering environment. At the end of this unit students will gain proficiency in basic methods of reinforced concrete analysis and design. The syllabus covers the behaviour of reinforced concrete members and structures, including: material properties, 'elastic' analysis (stresses/deformations/time-dependence), the ultimate strength of beams (flexure), the ultimate strength of columns (short and slender), the behaviour or reinforced concrete slabs, the reinforced concrete truss analogy (shear/torsion/and detailing implications), design of typical elements of a reinforced concrete building, structural modelling, analysis of load-effects (incl. earthquakes), design criteria (for durability, fire-resistance, serviceability and strength), design calculation procedures, reinforcement detailing and structural drawings.

Courses that offer this unit

Non-award/non-degree study If you wish to undertake one or more units of study (subjects) for your own interest but not towards a degree, you may enrol in single units as a non-award student. Cross-institutional study If you are from another Australian tertiary institution you may be permitted to undertake cross-institutional study in one or more units of study at the University of Sydney.
