Reinforced cement concrete design

This course primarily talks about reinforced concrete structural elements and structural systems. The basics of analyzing an RCC frame using analysis software like STAAD.Pro and designing the component elements of the frame with the help of MS Excel (or any other spreadsheet program) will be covered in this course.

These skills are basic requirements for a budding structural engineer and design firms continuously look for talents who possess these fundamental skillsets. The fundamentals covered in the course help the students to understand complex topics like the non-linear and inelastic responses of RCC structures easier.
