The following two
textbooks are required for the class:
1. MacGregor, J.G., and J.K. Wight. 2005. “Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics
and Design”, 4th Edition.
2. Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-05) and Commentary (ACI 318R-05),
American Concrete Institute.
The objectives of this class are that students should develop an
understanding of the basic topics and concepts used for the design of
reinforced concrete structures. More specifically the objectives are
to cover the following topics:
1. Concrete and steel reinforcement material
properties used during reinforced concrete design
Apply code-based methodologies to design
Behavior of concrete members exposed to flexural,
shear, and axial load effects
Account for serviceability in the design of
5. Design and detail beams and
one-way slabs for flexural and shear effects
and detail nonslender columns for combined load effects
and detail footings
Apply knowledge gained in Structural Analysis to
complete the design of structural components.
