Reinforced concrete is the major material for construction industry. Some of the design of civil engineering structures is based on Eurocodes, and the adoption of Eurocodes became significant. EN 1992 Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures (EC2) is the code of practice for concrete design. The adaption of EC2 has significant impact to the local and regional civil engineering industry.
This one-day CPD course aims at providing practising engineers with the theory and basis of structural concrete design to EC2. The background to EC2, and general design concepts of the ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state for reinforced concrete buildings and members are introduced. In addition, differences between EC2 and local code of practices are discussed.
- Background to Eurocodes
- Guiding principles of design to Eurocode 2
- Design for flexure
- Design for shear and punching shear
- Axial load plus uniaxial and biaxial bending
- Durability and concrete cover requirements
- Bond and anchorage, laps in reinforcement
- Comparison between EC2 and local code of practices
