Summary

The course deals with the design of precast reinforced concrete structures, both for bridges and for buildings. The course is focused in learning by projects supplemented by some lectures by the teachers.The students will work in groups to design a precast structure.

Content

- Precast bridge

- Industrial building

- Office or commercial building

- Parking garage

The evaluation of the course will be by project.

In the evaluation will be considered the:

- Design notes of the structure, of each element and of the connections

- Drawings. General drawings of the structure, detailed drawings with reinforcement of the elements and detailed drawings of the connections

- Presentation of the project to the rest of the students and the teachers

Given lectures by the teachers:

- General introduction for prefabrication in buildings

- General introduction for prefabrication in bridges

- Connections and detailing in precast structures

Design by project of precast structures:

- Design:

- General dimensioning of the structure

- Detailed design of the elements

- Detailing of reinforcement

- Design of the connections

- Detailing of the connections

- Sketches (simplified drawings)

- General drawing of the structure

- Detailed drawings of the elements

- Detailed drawings of the connections

- Presentation of the project
