Course Description: This seven-hour course analyzes the design and construction of reinforced concrete buildings. The course begins by examining the history, development, applications, standards and requirements of reinforced concrete buildings before focusing on the design and construction of specific building components using reinforced concrete. The course also discusses the specific properties of steel reinforcement and concludes with case study analysis.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to discuss the types and applications of reinforced concrete buildings and explore the building codes governing their design and construction, including ACI 318.

Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to analyze the design of reinforced concrete one-way slabs, two-way slabs, beams, columns, walls, foundations and other building components.

Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to evaluate the connections between reinforced concrete members and analyze the design of beam-column and slab-column joints.

Learning Objective 4:
