Course description and aims

This course deals with the following 3 issues concerned with concrete composite structures:
1) failure criteria of concrete under multi-axial stress, as material scale issue,
2) application of limit analysis forestimating strength of composite members, as member scale issue,
3) 3D modelling of structures, as frame scale issue.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will have an understanding of failure criteria of materials, way to estimate member strength by means of limit analysis, and issues existing in 3D modelling of structures.

Keywords

failure/yield criteria of materials, upper and lower bound theorem, assumption of rigid slab in plane, torsional vibretion

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Black board is usually used. Documents are delivered occasionally.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Textbook(s)

No text is set.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Non required.

Assessment criteria and methods

Scores are based on three assignments for each topics.
