Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures

The objective of this studio is to enable the students to design the reinforced concrete buildings under the effect of different loads acting on them. Discussions will range from master designers, iconic buildings and related design philosophy and structural load transfer to the modern futuristic buildings. Students will also prepare the physical models which will then be tested on the shake table to understand the different structural modes, follies in design and methods to rectify the same. Depending on the availability of laboratory, beams and cubes will be cast and will be loaded till failure through which the failure modes will bring in the relevance of reinforcement placement in a structure. With a given building and a problem statement, students will learn to develop the structural system, apply optimization techniques, analyze and design the same independently under gravity loads as well as lateral loads due to wind and earthquake. After finishing the static analysis of the buildings, students will then apply the principles of dynamic analysis and then finally take the maximum forces for the design. Students will be able to translate the design into drawings required to be released for execution on the site.
