Design of prestressed concrete elements to resist shear stress Class Schedule: Two seventy-five-minute sessions/week Contribution of Course to Meet the Professional Component: This course is an engineering topic, with contributions in engineering science and design Course Outcomes: This course is contributing toward the following educational outcomes: Outcome (1) A firm knowledge of mathematics, science & engineering principles and the ability to apply the knowledge (Outcome a). (3) The ability to design a component, system or process to meet desired needs and imposed constraints (Outcome c). (4) The ability to think logically, critically and creatively. (6) The ability to identify, formulate and solve civil engineering problems (Outcome e). (7) The ability to use appropriate modern techniques, skills and tools, including computer applications, necessary for engineering practice (Outcome k). (8) An understanding of professional ethics and integrity and an engineer’s responsibilities to the profession and society (Outcome f). (9) The ability to communicate effectively in written, oral, and graphical forms (Outcome g). (11) A knowledge of contemporary issues (Outcome j). Role of CE434 Students must apply knowledge of mathematics and engineering principles to successfully complete homework problems, and exams. The design process for reinforced masonry and prestressed concrete structures is an integral part of the course. Lectures, homework assignments, and exams all include a design component. Students must demonstrate logical, critical and creative thinking skills to complete homework assignments and solve design problems. Several homework assignments are open-ended. Students are required to identify, formulate and solve structural engineering problems related to the design of prestressed concrete buildings and bridges, and reinforced masonry buildings Current design codes and specifications are used throughout the course, and are required for the solution of many homework problems. Both excel sheets and MathCAD software were used to solve homework problems. Course lectures include discussions of safety/reliability in structural design codes, the responsibility of designers to exercise engineering judgment, and the role of structural engineers in ensuring public safety. Homework assignments representation of the data. include writing scales and graphical Course material includes a focus on contemporary structural engineering issues such as designing to mitigate damage under extreme loading e.g.- earthquakes and wind. (12) Recognition of the importance of Lectures regularly highlight the limitations on knowledge gained in a life-long learning and the benefits of single course on prestressed concrete and reinforced masonry design, being active in professional societies, and emphasize the need to continue learning through professional such as ASCE (Outcome i). education seminars, reading, and/or advanced coursework. Homework assignment requires students to construct exact interaction diagram which is not covered in class. Prepared by: Mohamed ElGawady, June, 2007
