Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

After completing this subject, students will be able to understand and apply the following skills and topic areas: - design and assessment of reinforced concrete elements; - project documentation, plan of shape and reinforcement.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


Within this subject students will gain skills how to design and assess reliability of reinforced concrete elements.This subject directly follows on the subjects Elasticity and Plasticity and Actions on Building Structures.By study of this subject students acquire knowledge about design and reliability assessment of reinforced concrete members and as well about way of preparation of basic project documentation.
