|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject was formerly known as Concrete Structures and Construction
Commercial and high rise construction (excluding industrial buildings) relies heavily on the use of reinforced concrete for structural components. The cost of the building structure is a significant portion of the total cost of the project. Interpretations of the information provided by the engineers’ reinforced concrete drawings and specifications provides the necessary means to be able to transfer this data into the physical built form. As a result, this subject investigates the rheology of concrete and the use of admixtures. Structural design concepts for reinforced concrete structures are analysed and their influence on construction methods assessed. The concepts relate to reinforced concrete frames including slab and beam systems, prestressed concrete design concepts and construction methods and composite construction systems. Other related topics include exposed concrete surface finishes, sprayed concrete technology, concrete detailing and constructability.
