AE 3231 - Concrete Design

4 lecture hours 0 lab hours 4 credits
Course Description
This course presents design and detailing of cast-in-place, reinforced conrete flexural and compression members for strength and serviceability in accordance with American Concrete Institute specifications. (prereq: AE 3201 ) (coreq: AE 3211 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Analyze cast-in-place, reinforced concrete buildings to determine the internal forces in members from external loads and member deflections
  • Calculate the moment-curvature behavior of reinforced concrete sections subjected to flexure and apply the behavior for the design of reinforced concrete beams and one-way slabs for flexural strength
  • Design reinforced concrete beams and one-way slabs for flexural, shear, and torsional strength, and detail for serviceablity and construction
  • Design and detail reinforced concrete spread footings to support axial loads
  • Design and detail reinforced concrete columns and walls for axial and flexural loads
  • Calculatae the moment magnification in non-sway, reinforced concrete columns
  • Integrate the behavior and design of individual members into the design of an overall structure
  • Understand the fundamental principles underlying the reinforced concrete building code and what drives changes in the building code
