2024 Fundamentals of Reinforced Concrete- Virtual

When:  Nov 6, 2024 from 11:00 to 18:00 (ET)
This course is intended as an introductory course for persons who have at least one course in reinforced concrete design.The course will provide a thorough overview of the fundamentals of specifying the fresh and hardened properties of concrete mixes; the review of applicable codes for concrete hydraulic structures; the design philosophy and methodology of reinforced concrete hydraulic structures; and issues associated with the construction process. The course will include actual design examples of frequently used hydraulic structures utilizing current design codes and guidelines that are focused on reducing cracking, limiting deflections, increasing durability, and decreasing permeability.  The following is a brief outline:     

-History of Concrete
-Comparison of Codes (ACI 318, ACI 350, USACE, USBR, USDA)
-Properties of fresh and hardened concrete
-Types and properties of reinforcement
-Concrete Mix Design
-Loading Conditions Unique to Hydraulic Structures
-Design Examples and Class Problems
-Concrete Repair and Remediation
-Joint Treatments, Waterstops, Drainage
-Software Available for Reinforced Concrete
