Description

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". 

Who is the target audience?
  • Engineering Students

In this lecture, I introduce to you the information and details about the courses that will be included in the concrete structure series.

This course "Theory of Reinforced Concrete" is the fist course in the series. For sure, it is a pre-requisite for the next courses. Just so that have an idea:

1st Course: Derivations of the Formulas and Theory of Design

2nd Course: Beam Design (T-Beam, Singly and Double Reinforced, Shear Reinforcement)

3rd Course: Slab Design (Solid slab, and Joist Slab).

4th Course: Columns Design (with or without eccentricity)
