Advanced Topics in Reinforced Concrete

Course Description:

Seismic performance and damages of reinforced concrete (RC) elements and buildings and earthquake-resistant design of RC structures. The concepts of: Ductility, confirement of concrete, the behaviour of RC materials under cyclic actions, the logic of earthquake-resistant design, design models and structural detailing for beams, columns, joints, coupling beams, short columns and shear walls. Fire resistant design for RC structures: the nature of fire, the behaviour of RC constituent materials under high temperatures, practical fire resistant design.

Performance based inelastic design of RC structures. Design for damage rehabilitation and strengthening of RC structures. Application to a typical RC building using an appropriate analysis computer software for structural analysis and evaluation.

Design of concrete structures for durability. Exposure classes and design for environmental loading. Design regulations and Standards.(OLD VERSION)
