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

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.
No text is set.
Scores are based on three assignments for each topics.
Students must have basic knowledge on structural mechanics and design.
