Specific course information

This course presents the fundamentals for the design of reinforced concrete structures under the NSR-10 code, in particular: design criteria of earthquake-resistant structural systems, structural configuration of buildings and methods of analysis. From the fundamentals of the design of concrete structures, attention is given to the design of structures with displacement and seismic lateral loads; the design of retaining walls and retaining structures subjected to lateral pressure loads; the design of spread and combined footings under various load combinations; the dynamic analysis of structures, steel ration calculations, seismic detailing of beams and columns; and the code requirements for earthquake-resistant design of joints and secondary elements.

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To identify the variables for earthquake-resistant design.
  • To calculate dead, live and seismic loads for reinforced concrete structures.
  • To propose dimensions of beams, joists and columns.
  • To develop a theoretical model of a building,
  • To calculate the story drift and shear base.
  • To propose load combinations and calculate design moments and shears.
  • To determine load envelopes and calculate steel ratios for beams, joists and columns.
  • To carry out the foundation design of a structure.
  • To analyze and calculate beam deflections due to service loads.
  • To perform control deflection based on allowable crack width.
  • To calculate and design retaining walls.
  • To analyze and calculate periods of vibration of buildings with symmetrical and non-symmetrical plants.
