Eugene Washington, PE
Reinforced concrete is used in bridges, buildings, dams, foundations and even sculptures. This course will lead the reader through the design of structural concrete by both working stress and ultimate strength design methods. Both of these methods are explained in theory and by example by first comparing live load configurations and then following a step-by-step calculation so that an actual design is achieved and the results are compared. This course also shows the reader how critical the selected loading model is to developing a successful design. Finally, the reason why both methods have their application is discussed. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
