Course Description

This course is 56 learning hours inclusive of 6 hours of live sessions. It is recommended that students spend an average of 7 hours per week on this course.

The fourth and final course in the Certificate in Structural Engineering for Architects and Non-Structural Engineers continues with reinforced concrete by looking at bending members, beam strength theory, beam design, shear in beams, slabs, deflection, and footings. It then focuses on reinforced concrete axially loaded members as columns and walls, connections, and prestressed and precast concrete. The course concludes with a look at masonry including materials and properties, masonry structural systems, masonry axially loaded members, empirical design of walls, and allowable stress method.
