Special Topics in Design of Reinforced Concrete (3) - 9th March 2021

The CPD course will be delivered on the web using Zoom.

Reinforced concrete is the major material for the construction industry. Most undergraduate courses on reinforced concrete design mainly concentrate on the topics of the ultimate limit state design of normal beams, one-way and two-way slabs, short columns in buildings and serviceability limit states of deflection and cracking.

This one-day CPD course aims at providing practicing structural engineers with an in-depth knowledge of the design of reinforced concrete. Contents of this course include: (1) design of waffle slabs, design of circular columns, and design of quarter-turn type of free-standing staircases; and (2) the design of outrigger structural systems in tall buildings. These materials are generally not covered by the current structural analysis and RC design in universities. In these special topics, the structural behavior and technical background for the analysis and design are presented and interpreted. Worked examples are provided to illustrate how to conduct the designs of waffle slabs, circular columns and quarter-turn free-standing staircases in detail.
