Learning objectives
Through the subject Concrete structures, the student acquires basic knowledge about reinforced concrete as a building material. Mechanical, physical and rheological properties of materials that make up reinforced concrete. Dimensioning procedures based on the theory of limit state design.
Learning outcomes
Upon completion of the course, the student acquires the knowledge of cross-sections design of reinforced concrete structural elements for different types of loads, in terms of determining the ultimate bearing capacity. During the course, the basic knowledge required for load analysis, static calculation and dimensioning of simple reinforced concrete structural assemblies is learned. The student is able to apply the acquired knowledge for the basic rules of construction of cross sections, in terms of rules for placing reinforcement in cross section and rules for placing reinforcement along the girders.
Basic physical, mechanical and rheological characteristics of hardened concrete. Types of concrete and their classes. Basic physical-mechanical and geometric characteristics of reinforcement. Types of reinforcement and their marks. Stress and strain phases to the assignment of RC beams. Load and action on structures. Safety factors for combined load effects. Design of elements: The concept of design, types of design, method of design (free, bound and determining the ultimate bearing capacity). Basics of element calculation: basic concept of boundary condition, safety concept, boundary conditions of cross-section strain. Centrically loaded line girders. Compressed elements without buckling. Tensioned elements. Clean bending, rectangular cross-sections, determination of ultimate bearing capacity. Eccentric bending, rectangular sections, free and bound design. Cross section calculation for boundary influences of transverse forces. Reinforcement plans of simple structural elements.
Teaching Methods
Lectures, auditory and practical exercises. The student independently creates a semester assignment with consultations.

Evaluation and grading
The student is required to independently complete all semester assignments with a percentage of accuracy of 51% or more. During the semester, the student has the opportunity to take two tests that carry a total of 30 points. If a student passes both tests, he is exempted from the part of the final exam, and if he does not pass one of the test, he must take the full final exam in terms of regular exam deadlines.
