Course Description

This unit covers the competency to carry out analysis and design of flexural reinforced concrete members, including beams and one-way slabs.

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

 National Element Code & Title: EAC020B Analyse and design flexural concrete members (simple) Element: Carry out analysis and design of singly reinforced concrete beams. Carry out analysis and design of doubly reinforced concrete beams. Carry out analysis and design of reinforced concrete T-beams and L-beams. Carry out analysis and design of continuous beams and continuous one-way slabs. Calculate termination of reinforcement and layout reinforcement to satisfy Code requirements. Evaluate the need to provide shear and torsion reinforcement Performance Criteria: 1.1 Design loads are calculated for each live load configuration.1.2 Design shear forces are calculated for each live load configuration.1.3 Design moments are calculated for the critical live load configuration.1.4 Design moment capacity is calculated to satisfy the moment envelope.1.5 Calculations are completed to design a flexural member for strength conditions and to satisfy durability. 2.1 Calculations are carried out to analyse and design doubly reinforced beams. 3.1 Effective flange width is determined for T-beam orL-beam sections.3.2 Calculations are carried out to analyse and designT-beam or L-beam sections. 4.1 Design bending moments are determined for a twospan or three-span continuous beam using appropriate coefficients.4.2 Design shear forces are determined4.3 Reinforcement is determined to satisfy negative and positive design moments. 5.1 Reinforcement is chosen to satisfy development length requirements. Points of curtailment are calculated. Layout of reinforcement is detailed 6.1 The need for shear and torsion reinforcement is evaluated.6.2 Size and spacing of reinforcement is determined to satisfy AS 3600.

Overview of Assessment

Assessment are conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set out in the National Training Package. Students are required to undertake summative assessments that bring together knowledge and skills.  To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment tasks detailed under the Assessment Task Section.

Your assessment for this course will be marked using the following table:

NYC (<50%)  Not Yet Competent

CAG (50-59%)  Competent - Pass

CC (60-69%)  Competent - Credit

CDI (70-79%)  Competent - Distinction

CHD (80-100%)  Competent - High Distinction

This unit will be assessed in the classroom environment using holistic assessment, based on typical workplace activities.
Assessment will comprise :
• A project covering elements 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 comprising a multi-storey reinforced concrete office building using industry drawings.
• A two-hour end-of-semester examination covering elements 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6
