STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN 3

CIV4SD3

2021

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 and wharves. Civil Engineers are expected to understand the behaviour of structural concrete and able to design structures using this composite material. This subject will develop your understanding of the behaviour and design of key elements in reinforced concrete structures. You'll be given numerous practical step-by-step examples to illustrate the design of reinforced concrete members. The design will follow the latest design criteria of the Australian concrete structures standard AS 3600.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Apply design concepts applicable to the behaviour, design and construction of reinforced concrete beams, slabs and columns.
02. Apply fundamental engineering concepts to calculate the strengths of reinforced concrete members using the latest Australian concrete structures standard AS3600
03. Calculate 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.
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.
05. Apply the strength limit state method for the design of short and slender columns and detail the steel reinforcement.
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
