Course Outcome

After learning the course, the students should be able to:
1. Assess loads, prepare layout, analyse, design and detail of various structural elements for RC framed structure up to G+3.
2. Identify the typical failure modes of RC building, retaining walls, water tanks, flat slabs & prestressed concrete sections.
3. Apply the principles, procedures and current Indian code requirements to the analysis and design.
4. Design & detail RC structures like Retaining Wall, Water Tank and Flat slab.
5. Apply the concept of earthquake resistant design in the building.
