CS3001 - Concrete Engineering
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Engineering (pre 2015)
Properties of plastic and hardened concrete, mix design, concrete construction. Strength
and durability of hardened concrete. Reinforced Concrete : transformed section analysis
of uncracked and cracked reinforced beams; ultimate bending strength of singly and
doubly reinforced beams, T and I beams; ductility; anchorage and stress development,
reinforcement detailing; design for shear; deflection and crack control; slabs and
slab systems; reinforced concrete columns. Prestressed Concrete: concept and construction
methods; stresses in simple uncracked members, equivalent loads and load balancing,
deflections; prestress losses; ultimate bending strength; introduction to end block
design and anchorage. Use of Australian design codes.
- calculate the ultimate strength of reinforced concrete beams, slabs, columns and prestressed
- estimate deflections in simple reinforced and prestressed concrete beams and use span/depth
ratios to control deflections;
- gain knowledge in the use of concrete in structures and analysis of concrete structures;
- perform basic quality control tests on fresh or hardened concrete; understand the
advantages of prestressing, and estimate prestress requirements for simple cases;
- Appreciate concrete as a construction material and understand the production process
of cement and concrete.
