Paper Description
In this paper, students learn how to design reinforced concrete structures through a projectbased 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.
Paper Structure
This paper is taught through lectures, workshops and practical laboratory activities. Lectures will be recorded and will be accessible through Panopto.
