Calculation and design of slabs, column-supported flat-slabs, foundations and shells. Compression-field theory for panels, plates and shells. Iteration method for strength analysis of concrete shells. Thin-shell theory for axisymmetric cylinder shells. Calculation and capacity of structures deteriorated by reinforcement corrosion and alkali-silica reactions.
Concrete Structures 3 is the final design course that the students meet in their specialization within design of concrete structure. Together with Concrete Structures 1 and 2, it offers the students a rather comprehensive introduction to the field of design of concrete structures. All courses present the theoretical background for the methods of analysis and design as implemented in the design codes for concrete structures, for the time being Eurocode 2. The main topics of Concrete Structures 3 are walls, slabs, shells and foundations, and calculation of deteriorated structures. Concrete Structures 3 has these learning objectives. Knowledge: - The theoretical background for compression field theory - Strut and tie models - Different methods for design of concrete slabs - The theory for punching shear in concrete slabs - Design of concrete shells - Design of simple foundation - Calculation and capacity control of deteriorated structures Skills: - Strut and tie modelling according to Eurocode 2 - Design membranes by using the compression field theory - Calculation and design of two-way slabs according to the theory of elasticity, the yield line method and the strip method. - Design of flat slabs - Capacity of punching shear acoording to Eurocode 2 - Design of concrete shells with the sandwich model - Calculate capacity of concrete shells with the iteration method - Design simple foundations according to Eurocode 2 - Calculation and capacity control of deteriorated structures General competence: - The theoretical background for structural analysis and design of concrete structures - Background for requirements in Eurocode 2
Learning methods and activities
Lectures and exercises. The lectures and exercises are in English when students who do not speak Norwegian take the course. If the teaching is given in English the Examination papers will be given in English only. Students are free to choose Norwegian or English for written assessments.
Further on evaluation
If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may be changed from written to oral.
