'Design of Concrete Structures' is a course offered in the fifth semester of B. Tech. in Civil Engineering program at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Unit 1

Introduction to R. C structures – Review of basic material properties- Concrete and Reinforcing steel. Design philosophies - Working stress method (WSM), Ultimate load method (ULM), Limit state method (LSM). Design of Beams - singly and doubly reinforced rectangular and flanged sections. Serviceability requirements. Behaviour in Shear and Torsion; analysis and design with and without shear reinforcement.

Unit 2

Design for Bond: development length, splicing, curtailment. Design of one-way slabs and two-way rectangular slabs (wall-supported) - as per IS 456: 2000. Design of Compression Members: effective length, short columns subject to axial compression with and without uniaxial / biaxial eccentricities.

Unit 3

Introduction to slender columns. Design of isolated footing for axially loaded & eccentrically loaded columns, combined footing. Design of staircases. Introduction to Prestessed concrete with simple examples.
