Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

In this paper, students learn how to design reinforced concrete structures through a project-based approach.

Lectures will furnish the theoretical background needed to analyse and design different typologies of reinforced concrete structures. Examples of designs compliant to New Zealand Standards will be reviewed and discussed in class.

The students will then apply this knowledge to complete the design of a reinforced concrete structure. The designs will be presented at the end of semester.

Test 1

A test will be held during the 6th week of class. The format and contents will be discussed in class prior to the test.

Test 2

A test will be held during the 10th week of class. The format and contents will be discussed in class prior to the test.

Project Presentation

The students will present their projects at the end of the paper. It is expected from them to be available during the Engineering Design Show to showcase their work.

Exam

The Final Exam will be a closed book examination, and the topics covered will reflect the content of the whole course.
