Concrete Constructions

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.

This course provides students with an understanding of the structural design process, the mechanics of reinforced concrete, and the ability to design structural concrete members including slabs (one-way), beams and columns.It also covers the behavior of reinforced concrete members subjected to moment, shear, torsion and axial forces.

Learning outcome

The course will give students basic understanding of the principles of reinforced concrete design and knowledge of the design of normal concrete beams, slabs, and columns.


  • Calculation of Loads/actions on ordinary buildings.
  • Design principles: limit state design (1) Ultimate limit state, (2) serviceability limit state
  • Analysis of reinforced concrete cross-section at ultimate limit state: bending, bending plus axial load
  • Analysis and design for shear and torsion
  • Serviceability, durability and stability requirements
  • Design of reinforced concrete beams, slabs and columns
  • Calculation of deflections and crack width
  • Use of appropriate rules and regulations.
