CONCRETE AND STEEL STRUCTURES

CVEE232. CONCRETE AND STEEL STRUCTURES (2 CR.: 1LEC, 2TUT)

Combined Course addressing two technical fields:

Review of concrete and steel structure systems. Reinforced concrete fundamentals reviewing basics of reinforced concrete behavior and introducing methods of design used in current engineering practice. Basic mechanics of structural concrete introduced in examining bending, shear, and axial forces. Topic areas including beams, slabs systems, columns, foundations, retaining walls, and an introduction to pre-stressed concrete.

Based on a statics and strength of materials, Review of tension, compression and bending steel members designed into truss or column and beam structural systems.

Prerequisite: CVEE231.
