Structural Mechanics and Strength of Materials. Building Technology basic course. CAD Technology 2D. Soil Mechanics.

Intended learning outcomes

The course intends to give basic knowledge of concrete- and geotechnical structures.After completing this course students should be able to

  • describe the basic principles of reinforced concrete structures in regard to common load situations and environment classes
  • design basic structures by using tables, formulas and handbooks and give an account of the calculations so they are easy to follow and understand
  • perform calculations of reinforced concrete structures in ultimate limit state and in serviceability limit state and geotechnical structures in ultimate limit state
  • design basic reinforced concrete structures subject to bending moment, shear force and normal force and calculate crack width and deflection
  • perform design of basic geotechnical structures such as foundation pads and piles together with an overview of retaining walls
  • use terminology, symbols and conventions adequately
  • estimate calculations with reasonable approximations
  • perform written reports together with reinforced drawings for two assignments
  • perform one laboratory work with written report

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
