Computer Aided Structural Design

Computer Aided Structural Design has been implemented as an optional compulsory course which provides students to gain knowledge in a computer aided design and analysis of reinforced concrete structures. The objective of the course is to demonstrate the practical use of selected FEM software for the limit state design of various concrete structures. Namely, the focus is on computational models, reinforcement design, numerical modelling, crack control, deformation control and internal forces distribution. Students willing to sign up for the course are expected to have fundamental experience with the design of concrete structures.
