Concrete Structures ENG705

Hobart

Introduction

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.
