Design of Concrete Structures I

Enrollment in this course is by invitation only

About This Course

Design of Concrete Structures I is a core subject which deals with the basic concepts of design, analysis and design of the structural components like beam,slab, column, foundation and stair using Limit State Method with reference to Indian Standard Codes.

The basic objectives of the course are:

1. To provide the students with the knowledge of the behavior of reinforced concrete structural elements in flexure, shear, compression and torsion.

2. To enable them to design essential elements such as beams, columns, slabs staircases and footings under various loads.


Introduction- Limit State method of design- Analysis of singly reinforced rectangular beams- shear strength of RC beam-design of shear reinforcement-bond and development length- curtailment of reinforcement-design of singly reinforced beams-analysis and design of doubly reinforced beams – simply supported , cantilever- analysis of singly reinforced T-beams -design for torsion-design of one-way slab- cantilever slab- continuous slab (detailing only)- two way slabs- design using code coefficients- Limit State of Serviceability-deflection-cracking -Stair cases- design & detailing- Columns-effective length-design of axially loaded short columns with rectangular ties and helical reinforcement.


A basic knowledge about the grades of concrete and steel, tests involved in the determination of strength and mechanics of solid
