This unit familiarises students with concrete theory, and the analysis and design of concrete structures. Students will be using Australian Standards in addition to Limit Sate Design to determine the loads and load combinations and then analyse and design concrete members for strength and serviceability. This whole design process is taught using a real world structure. Students will also be expected to use computer- aided design facilities and structural analysis applications for the design, optimisation and documentation of concrete projects.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
