Design of Concrete Structures ENG304
This unit enables students to extend their capacity to perform structural engineering analysis and design building on the basic concepts and fundamental principles of concrete materials and structural engineering analysis and design. The content of this unit covers concrete technology followed by analytical and design techniques for concrete cross-sections and members. The teaching emphasis in this unit is on a mix of lecture/tutorial style and design project based learning where specific topics of structural engineering design related to concrete and reinforced concrete are introduced.
