Concrete Structures, advanced course

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The course is an advanced course for the design of concrete structures as well as the assessment and strengthening of existing concrete structures.

Learning outcome

The aim of this course is to provide students with a more advanced coverage of various topics relating to the design of concrete structures. It targets those who wish to specialize in Structural Engineering and are planning a career in structural design. On successful completion of the course, students will be able to:
Knowledge
  • Analyze, design and detail reinforced concrete different slabs;
  • Analyze, design and detail pre-stressed concrete members;
  • Asses the condition and strengthen existing concrete structures
  • Analyze, design and detail deep beams and walls;
  • Analyze, design and details concrete shell elements.

Skills
  • Ability to analyze and design complex concrete structural elements in buildings and bridges.
  • Assess and identify the performance of existing structures and plan solutions for their reinforcement

General competence
  • Ability to work as structural engineer with higher level of competence
