Advanced Concrete Structures ENG711

Introduction

This unit provides an advanced level of understanding of designing reinforced concrete structures. It focuses on advanced principles such as time-dependent deformations, crack control and strut-and-tie method of design. The unit also explores in depth the use of commercial software such as RAPT and ETABS to design advanced concrete units such as tall-building cores and flat slabs
