STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN 3

CIV4SD3

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Reinforced concrete structures are used extensively in the construction of a wide range of modern structures including bridges, low- and high-rise buildings, dams reservoirs, wharves and the like. Civil Engineers are expected to understand the behavior of structural concrete and able to design structures using this composite material. This subject develops an understanding of the behavior and design of key elements in reinforced concrete structures. Engineers Australia stage 1 competencies covered in this subject are: 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.3 and 3.2 (see intended learning outcomes for details).

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Appreciate the art and science of reinforced concrete design and understand the describe significant concepts applicable to the behavior, design and construction of reinforced concrete beams, slabs and columns.EA stage 1 competencies include: 1.1 Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals. applicable to the engineering discipline.
02. Apply fundamental engineering concepts to develop specialist mathematical models of behavior, and identify, correctly interpret and be able to apply the relevant provisions of AS3600:2018. EA stage 1 competencies include: 1.2 Conceptual understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the engineering discipline.
03. Determine and detail the amount and distribution of reinforcement required in a reinforced concrete beam to satisfy the strength limit states for flexure, shear, serviceability and to control cracking. EA stage 1 competencies include: 1.3 In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline, 2.1 Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving.
04. Apply the span-to-depth provision for determining the slab thickness and apply the strength limit state philosophy for detailing the steel reinforcement in the slab. EA stage 1 competencies include: 1.3 In depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline, 2.3 Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes.
05. Apply the strength limit state method for the design of short and slender columns and detail the steel reinforcement. EA stage 1 competencies include: 1.3 In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline, 2.3 Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes.
06. Conduct a bending test in the laboratory on the reinforced concrete slab/beam, observe its behavior under load, compare measured data with the predictions of AS3600, and critically reviewed the findings. EA stage 1 competencies include: 1.3 In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline, 3.2 Effective oral and written communication in professional and lay domains.
