CE 72.52: Advanced Concrete Structures (August 2015 Semester)
To provide students with advanced knowledge of behavior and design of reinforced concrete structures, review of specifications, limit states, Ductility of RC frames, shear and torsion, Seismic detailing, Strut and tie models, serviceability, and design with high-strength and pre-stressed concrete.
Structural design concept of reinforced concrete, ultimate limit state, serviceability; review of specifications; Design of axial members, stability concepts, strut and tie models; shear and torsion; ductility and deflection; innovation design solutions with high-strength and pre-stressed concrete.
The course is divided in to following parts each covering in detail, a specific aspect/component of tall buildings design and analysis. The course starts with an overview of various tall building structural systems, introduces engineers to various analysis and design methods for individual components of tall buildings and guides them to various steps involved in the design process to complete the final design.
The video course is divided in to the following lectures.
Lecture 1: Introduction Lecture 2: Material Behavior (Part 1) Lecture 2: Material Behavior (Part 2) Lecture 3: Section Behavior Flexure (Part 1) Lecture 3: Section Behavior Flexure (Part 2) Lecture 3: Section Behavior – Shear and Torsion (Part 3) Lecture 4: Ductility of Cross Sections and Members (Part 1) Lecture 4: Ductility of Cross Sections and Members (Part 2) Lecture 4: Ductility of Cross Sections and Members (Part 3) Lecture 5: Design of Columns (Part 1) Lecture 5: Design of Columns (Part 2) Lecture 6: Pre-cast Construction (Part 1) Lecture 6: Pre-cast Construction (Part 2) Lecture 7: Strut and Tie Approach (Part 1) Lecture 7: Strut and Tie Approach (Part 2) Lecture 8: Shear Wall and Coupling Beam Design Hands on Training – GEAR and Section Builder
