EGB375 Design of Concrete Structures

Unit synopsis

This is an intermediate civil engineering unit that will develop the knowledge essential for the design of concrete structural elements using part of the information covered in two basic level units: (i) Civil Engineering Materials and (ii) Engineering Mechanics. Design principles of concrete structural elements subject to bending, shear and axial forces will be developed from the fundamental principles of engineering mechanics. Appropriate clauses in concrete structures design standards (AS3600/ AS5100) will be referenced where applicable. The information covered in this unit will be developed further in the Advanced Concrete Design unit later in the course.
