Reinforced Concrete III: Design of Slabs
What you'll learn
- Design Solid Slabs and Understand the Philosophy of Design
- Design Joist (Ribbed) Slabs and Understand the Philosophy of Design
- Review of T-Beams Design
- You should be knowledgeable about designing Reinforced Concrete Beams
- Mechanics of Materials
- Statics: Moments and Shear Diagrams
- Basic Information about Construction Materials
Make sure you know Reinforced Concrete Theory and How to design Reinforced Concrete beams before taking this course.
about the course:
In the previous course, you have been introduced to the philosophy of Reinforced Concrete Design. This course 'Design of Reinforced Concrete Slab' gives you detailed understanding, explanations and procedures for the design of RC Slabs.
What to expect from this course:
After completion of this course, you are expected to be able to design the two types of RC Beams: Joist Slab System, and Solid Slab System.
What are exactly the points covered in this course:
This course focuses on the following concepts:
- Philosophy and Design of Solid Slab System
- Philosophy and Design of Joist Slab System
Students completing the course will have full understanding of the design of Solid Slab System and Joist Slab System. In addition, students will be able to design these slabs given the service loads. Quizzes will be added on demand.

- Civil Engineering Students
- Civil Engineers
I am an engineer who is obsessed with education and research! I am currently researching designing Floating Cities at Princeton University, which the #1 university in the United States. I am lucky to be one of the researchers tackling such futuristic topics. At Princeton, I met and learned from the best engineers in the world - including Bill Baker, the man behind the design of Burj Khalifa. In addition, at Princeton University, I am teaching and mentoring many of the smartest students in the world. During my free time, I publish engineering episodes on my YouTube channel "Engineering Philosophy" where I have over 1 million views and around 20,000 subscribers from over 110 countries.
Why I sell my courses?
My courses are free on YouTube. If you want a certificate, then you need to enroll in the courses on Udemy.
What and Where did I study?
I am getting my doctorate degree (Ph.D.) and master's degree in engineering from Princeton University in the Creative & Resilient Urban Engineering (CRUE) group.
Before joining Princeton, I earned another master's degree from Syracuse University in Upstate New York; I joined Syracuse with the prestigious fellowship by Dubai Contracting Company (DCC).
I also earned my Bachelors of Engineering (B.E.) from the Lebanese American University (LAU) with a full scholarship from the European Union.
