ENEC14013 Concrete Structures

Course details

This course introduces the principles and practices of design of concrete structures conforming to Standards. Structural systems and load paths for gravity and lateral loading are identified and determined and state-of-the-art construction materials are reviewed in the context of sustainability and environmental issues. Students interpret and apply Standards to design concrete structural components such as beams, slabs, columns, footings and retaining walls. They plan and prepare tests and carry out tests on structural concrete components, interpret results and prepare test reports. The social and cultural context of concrete building design and serviceability requirements are integrated in the design process through individual /team work that focuses on development of professionalism, ethical practice, problem solving and communication.

Distance Education (Flex) students will be required to attend a residential school to provide an opportunity to develop course learning outcomes.
