CEE 4730 Design of Concrete Structures
Lecture: TR 11:40am-12:55pm HLS 366
Section: R 2:30-4:25 THR B02
F 2:30pm-4:25pm THR B02
Spring. 4 credits.
Prerequisite: CEE 3710 or permission of instructor.
Centered on the design of a multi-story building that is initially planned with masonry bearing walls and precast-prestressed concrete floors. The masonry walls are then replaced with steel beams and columns. In the next phase the precast concrete is replaced with cast-in-place reinforced concrete. Finally, the structural steel elements are replaced with a reinforced concrete framing system. The course explores gravity loads, wind loads, and earthquake loads, and the behavior of individual members and the structure as a whole.
Outcome 1: Learn how to develop loads and structures from planned use and from service environment.
Outcome 2: Learn how loads move through building systems.
Outcome 3: Understand the use and origin of standard building codes and specifications.
Outcome 4: Experience the fiscal value of time by keeping track of all time spent on design project and submitting bi-weekly invoices to the client.
Outcome 5: Gain experience with working in teams.
