Course Language
Course Contents
The course Concrete Structures 2 (CT3150) contains three theoretical parts and two accompanying exercises.

The part of reinforced concrete consists of one way and two way spanning slabs, punching shear and crack width control.

The second part consists of statically determinate prestressed girders.

In the third part the theory and execution of drilled tunnels is dealt with.

In the exercise "reinforced concrete" a flat slab floor is designed.
In the exercise "prestressed concrete" a prestressed girder of a bridge is designed.
Study Goals
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
Design one way spanning slabs, two way spanning slabs and flat slabs.
Understand and apply the punchning shear check and crack width control of reinforced concrete.
Design pre-stressed concrete girders and understand their behavior.
Calculate prestress losses.
Calculate the bending moment and shear force capacities of prestressed concrete girders.
Detail the areas in which (prestressing) forces are introduced.
Design and dimension drilled tunnels.
