Special Topics in Design of Reinforced Concrete (3) - Date to be announced

Reinforced concrete is the major material for the construction industry. Most undergraduate courses on reinforced concrete design are concentrated mainly concentrates 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) the design of reinforced concrete waffle slabs and helical 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 courses. In these special topics, the fundamental 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 these reinforced concrete waffle slabs and reinforced concrete helical staircases in detail.

Course Outline:
  • Design of reinforced concrete waffle slabs

  • Design of reinforced concrete helical staircases

  • Design of outrigger structural systems in tall buildings: (1) Conventional outriggers

  • Design of outrigger structural systems in tall buildings: (2) Belt trusses as virtual outriggers

Language: Cantonese with technical terms in English
