CER 320 - Design of Reinforced Concrete
(3 cr.) This course introduces the materials and mechanical properties of concrete and the design of reinforced concrete structures. Mix design and strength testing labs develop the concept of proportioning constituents for quality concrete and provide a background in techniques of material testing, quality control and sound construction practices. The study of reinforced concrete includes analysis and design of simple structures, resulting in an appreciation for the strength and serviceability of these structures. Current codes and standards are used to guide the practical design of beams, slabs, columns and footings. Prerequisite: CER 310; Every Year, Fall
