Rationale
Majority of civil engineering structures are normally made up of Reinforced Cement Concrete. Knowledge of designing and detailing of reinforced concrete structures is very important for civil engineers in order to make structures safe and serviceable during its life span. Limit State design philosophy is currently used worldwide for design of RC structures. Proper detailing of reinforcement in structural drawing is necessary in order to get the correct behavior of structures and leads to smooth construction of RC structures. This course will provide detailed knowledge of design and reinforcement detailing as per related Indian standards
Course Outcome
After learning the course, the students should be able to:
1. Assess loads, prepare layout, analyse, design and detail of various structural elements for RC framed structure up to G+3.
2. Identify the typical failure modes of RC building, retaining walls, water tanks, flat slabs & prestressed concrete sections.
3. Apply the principles, procedures and current Indian code requirements to the analysis and design.
4. Design & detail RC structures like Retaining Wall, Water Tank and Flat slab.
5. Apply the concept of earthquake resistant design in the building.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
