CVE 444/445 Design of Concrete Structures

Spring Semester

The course introduces the materials and mechanical properties of concrete and masonry, and the design of reinforced concrete and masonry structures.  Mix design and strength testing labs develop the concept of proportioning constituents for quality concrete and provide a background in techniques of material testing, quality control, and sound construction practices.  The study of reinforced concrete and masonry includes analysis and design of simple structures, resulting in an appreciation for the strength and serviceability of these structures.  Current codes and standards are used to guide the practical design of beams, slabs, columns, footings, walls and lintels.  3 class periods and 1 three-hour lab period (CVE 445). Prerequisite: CVE 340 .  Corequisite: CVE 445

4 credit hours
