CE483 (Version: 2020 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
CE483 DSN CONC STRUCTURES 2020 2 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
The course introduces the materials and mechanical properties of concrete, and the design of reinforced concrete structures. Mix design and strength testing labs develop the concept of proportioning constituents for quality concrete and provide a background in techniques of material testing, quality control, and sound construction practices. The study of reinforced concrete and masonry includes analysis and design of simple structures, resulting in an appreciation for the strength and serviceability of these structures. Current codes and standards are used to guide the practical design of beams, slabs, columns, and footings. The course includes several laboratory experiences that require students to develop and conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions.
LESSONS: 40 @ 55 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 8 @ 120 min
