# Concrete 2

## Code

CE-BET2

## Version

1.0

## Offered by

Civil Engineering

## ECTS

5### Prerequisites

Students must have completed BET1 or equivalent in order attend the course.

### Main purpose

The purpose of this course is to build on the fundamental knowledge gained in previous courses such that a complete analysis and design can be undertaken on concrete beams, columns, walls and slabs in both ultimate and serviceability limit states. Furthermore, to have knowledge about statics used for prefabricated concrete element buildings.

### Knowledge

After completion of the course, the student must:

- Have knowledge about calculating beams, wall and slabs.

- Have knowledge about statics for precast concrete elements.

### Skills

After completed the course, the student must be able to:

- Calculate the loadbearing capacity of simple centrally loaded concrete columns

- Calculate the loadbearing capacity of eccentrically and transversely loaded columns.

- Calculate walls by using “EC2 – simplified method for walls as well as the “Danish Element formula”.

- Calculate continuous concrete one-way spanning slabs according to the lower bound solution.

- Calculate two-way spanning slabs according to the strip method.(a lower bound solution).

- Be able to determine the horizontal transfer of forces to walls in a statically determinate and statically indeterminate wall structure, using elastic or plastic distribution of forces.

- Calculate a wall using the “Strut and tie” model.

- Gain an understanding of casting joints and be able calculate these in according to DS/EN 1992-1-1.

### Competences

After completion of the course, the student must be able to communicate clearly both orally as well as in writing, especially by being able to visualize the calculation with relevant sketches that show the applied calculation model, preconditions etc.

### Topics

### Teaching methods and study activities

The course is scheduled for 12 weeks with 4 lectures each week. Workload for the students corresponds to 138-hour.

Activities vary between theoretical lectures, self-studies, consultation periods in connection to the work with assignments and students’ presentation of assignments.
