Centered on the design of a multi-story building that is initially planned with masonry bearing walls and precast-prestressed concrete floors. In the next phase the precast concrete is replaced with cast-in-place reinforced concrete. Finally, masonry bearing walls 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.
