The purpose of this course is to provide students with a rational basis of the design of reinforced concrete members and structures, through advanced understanding of material and structural behavior.

The aim of this course is to provide students with the rules to design reinforced concrete members and structures, through advanced understanding of material and structural behavior.

After completing the course, the student is expected to have competences in calculation and design of the main elements in reinforced concrete structures according to current building codes. In particular, students will be able to do the following:
• Understand and explain the principles of reinforced concrete
• Assess proper dead, live and other structural loads
• Design and analyze reinforced concrete beams, slabs, columns, and footings for flexure, shear, axial loads, and torsion
• Design and analyze reinforced concrete elements using proper design software
• Work in a team during the group course project

Review of the course project 16 h

The course includes traditional and practical lectures. A course project is assigned to several teams of students (up to 4 in each group) during the semester. The project requires designing a simple building by using the design principles learned in class. It is required to use hand calculation and open source design software.

The course includes traditional lectures (64 h). A course project is also assigned to several teams of students (up to 4 in each group) during the semester. The project requires designing a simple building by using the design principles learned in class. It is required to make hand calculation and to use open source design software. A review of the course project is given to each group during the semester (16h).

The exam is divided into three parts. The first part is the course project, which has to be completed within the end of the semester (10 points). The second part is a written test of 30 minutes, consisting of the solution of two simple problems (10 points). Finally, there is an individual oral colloquium of about 20 minutes, during which a series of questions on some parts of the course are asked (10 points).

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

The second part is a written test of 30 minutes, consisting of the solution of two simple problems (10 points). During the written test, students cannot use books, notes, etc. Finally, there is a non-mandatory individual oral colloquium of about 20 minutes, during which questions on some parts of the course are asked (10 points).

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
