Reinforced Concrete I: Essentials and Derivations
What you'll learn
- Derive variables used in Reinforced Concrete Elements
- Understand the Philosophy of dimensioning Reinforced Concrete Elements
- Understand the behavior of Reinforced Concrete based on Reinforcement Ratio
- State the Assumptions used in the Design of RC elements
- Understand why Steel is used as reinforcing material in concrete
- Basic understanding of Statics : Strain and Strain Profile
- Basic Understanding of Mechanics of Materials
Civil Engineering Courses by Hamid El Darwich:
Learn the language of Reinforced Concrete; You probably have taken Statics and Mechanics of Materials, so this short course will introduce you to the essential concepts that you should know before starting design of concrete elements.
What to expect from this course:
After completion of this course, you are expected to be able to know the derivation of the variables used in reinforced concrete design such as reinforcement ratio, nominal resistivity of concrete, etc.
In addition, this course guides you through the derivation of these variables. You will also be able to understand the basis of dimensioning of RC elements.
What are exactly the points covered in this course:
This course focuses on the following concepts:
- Concrete material and its elements
- Why does concrete need reinforcement
- Why steel is used as reinforcing material
- Derivation of RC variables such as effective depth, nominal capacity, etc.
- Safety factors used in design (most used combination)
- Assumption used in design
Students completing the course will have basic knowledge to start design lectures. The course is easy to follow; all of the resources needed are posted in the course content. Other instructors directly start with the design problems making them hard to be understood, this course is your "Starters".

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.
