CIV4SD3

2019

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Civil Engineers are required to design different structures under various loading conditions using the relevant standards. This subject aims to provide students a fundamental understanding in the design of reinforced concrete structures. The following topics are covered: Design of reinforced concrete beams for strength and service ability, design of slabs,design of reinforced concrete columns. Engineers Australia stage 1 competencies covered in this subject are: 1.3, 2.2, 2.3 and 3.2 (see intended learning outcomes for details)

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Design reinforced concrete beams, slabs and columns for strength and serviceability

Activities:
The learning activities for the design of reinforced concrete beams, slabs and columns include the lectures and workshop. The design of reinforced concrete beams using worked examples is first introduced in the lectures. The design exercises for reinforced concrete beams, slabs and columns are given in the workshop. The static testing for the reinforced concrete beam and slab is demonstrated in the structural lab.

02. Design concrete structures to be compliant with Australian Standards AS 3600-2009

Activities:
Students are provided with worked examples in lectures and workshop problems based around design with reference to the Australian Standard AS 3600-2009.

03. Formulate and solve concrete design and analysis problems

Activities:
The problems in the workshops get students to apply worked examples (from the lecture notes) to different domains to analyse concrete structures
