KurzbeschreibungThis course supplements the courses Structural Concrete I and II regarding the analysis and dimensioning of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. It focuses on limit analysis methods for girders, discs, slabs and shells, particularly regarding their applicability to the safety assessment of existing structures and their computer-aided implementation.
LernzielEnhancement of the understanding of the load-deformation response of reinforced and prestressed concrete; refined knowledge of models and ability to apply them to general problems, particularly regarding the structural safety assessment of existing structures; awareness of, and ability to check, the limits of applicability of limit analysis methods; knowledge of models suitable for computer-aided structural design and ability for critical use of structural design software.
InhaltFundamentals (structural analysis, theorems of limit analysis, applicability of limit analysis methods); shear walls and girders (stress fields and truss models, deformation capacity, membrane elements with yield conditions and load-deformation behaviour, computer-aided structural design); slabs (equilibrium solutions, yield conditions, shear and punching shear); fibre reinforced concrete (mechanical behaviour, applications); long term effects; fire behaviour.
