Prerequisite(s): CIVL 4104 with D or better
This course introduces students to basic design principles of reinforced concrete structural members such as beams, slabs, and walls. Topics will include bending of single and doubly reinforced beams, T-beams, and slabs, as well as shear design of these members. The design of development length and splicing of reinforcing bars in the members will be included as well. Methods and materials used in concrete work will be discussed with attention given to the materials and methods of formwork construction.
