    Learning outcomes

    On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

    1. Apply concepts for reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete design.

    2. Synthesise and apply fundamental mechanics to the reinforced concrete design process.

    3. Design, analyse and size simpler elements of reinforced and prestressed concrete elements.

    4. Design and check for serviceability (crack and deflection) conditions and for ultimate limit state conditions in accordance with relevant reinforced concrete design and building standards.

    5. Synthesise the design of reinforced concrete elements into a realistic structure.
